I was really disappointed, considering all of the great actors involved and since I love science fiction and the great disaster films of days gone by. I bought the DVD used and got my money’s worth–it’s a decent watch.
I would recommend watching if you like disaster movies or any of the actors involved, maybe even renting or buying the DVD used or for a really good price new, say for 5 bucks, but anything more would be wasteful or being ripped off.
A high school Astronomy club discovers a celestial anomaly, their advisor checks it, becomes alarmed at what he finds, and things shift gears.
Not bad for a movie that made “E.L.E/Extinction Level Event” a popular phrase and made the naive public aware of The Danger From Space.
From there, seemingly unrelated events come to the attention of a novice TV reporter, culminating in an Apollo-Soyuz level cooperative near space mission.
The star-studded crew isn’t worked very hard, even as the people are divided into two groups by lottery.
Nevertheless, Family is front and center, in many forms, from divided to nuclear to “baby makes three.”
At least the audience wasn’t subjected to a barrage of macho chatter that characterized “Armageddon,” but a out-of-this-world reading of “Moby Dick.”
Morgan Freeman’s “President Tom Beck” does his best “Abraham Lincoln” in this film, which is one reason I watch this film when it is broadcast, even though I have the DVD. 8/10;)
“Deep Impact” is extremely under rated!
5.9!? I can’t believe that. I know disaster movies are usually crap such as The Day After Tomorrow, Armageddon, Godzilla, Independence Day, etc. This however was not crap. It boasted a fine cast that did great work the standout being Morgan Freeman and Robert Duvall. The rest of the cast though also did quite well. The story was handled in a fairly realistic manner and didn’t require me to roll my eyes at the many plot contrivances the way the others I listed did. The only major flaw for me was the casting of tea Leoni. The usually dependable actress was extremely bland in this film. She has done much better work in her career. Despite that flaw this is another fine movie that for some reason is really under rated.
Fantastic and Moving
Having seen such films as Armageddon and The Day After Tomorrow, I really expected this film to be basically an effects demo reel. Most disaster films fit into this category: their plot is loosely tied together with some major event; humanity is threatened, a group of heroes is sent to try to save the world, and mankind prevails over nature. The rest of the film is essentially nifty visual effects that don’t do much to enhance the plot.
So when I saw the first half of Deep Impact, I was amazed. Apart from a brief montage of special effects in the opening sequence (a car crash that simply screams “big budget”), the movie is one of the first disaster movies I’ve seen that actually focuses more on the human side of the drama rather than the awesome visual effects that computers can accomplish.
Many times during the film, especially during the latter half, I felt myself touched by the realism that the actors and actresses convey. There are moments when you realize how fragile and precious life is, and that’s saying something for a film of this budget.
While the visual effects are indeed impressive, there are other features that make Deep Impact a necessary film to watch. James Horner’s music is strikingly similar to his previous “Titanic” and “Apollo 13” scores, but it is still hauntingly beautiful and fits the tone of the movie perfectly. Tea Leoni does a good job of portraying a newscaster attempting to cover the events surrounding her while dealing with her own personal emotions, which is undoubtedly a hard act to pull off. Elijah Wood shows his skill years before “Lord of the Rings” hit theaters. The other actors and actresses are very realistic and emotional, and the movie flows smoothly with their presence.
All in all, this movie is not one to be missed. Keep an open mind while watching this movie: don’t watch it with the misconception that it’s just going to be another one of those big-budget dull blockbuster films that gets churned out every summer. This one dares to avoid the seemingly standard clichés set by other films of the genre, which makes it a truly unique film to experience.
