This film opens with a visually spectacular meteor strike devastating various famous landmarks, which soon descends into a cheeseball soap opera during which very little actually happens. A round of applause for the genius behind that idea...

An amateur astronomer Leo Biederman (Elijah Wood) notices an object near the stars Mizar and Alcor at a star party in Richmond, Virginia. Jenny Lerner (Téa Leoni) get's involved with the "E.L.E.", for "Extinction-Level Event." US President Tom Beck (Morgan Freeman) announces that a comet named Wolf-Biederman is 7 miles (11 km) wide, large enough to destroy all life if it strikes Earth. Amazing special effects, decent acting and skilled artists are not enough to make a film good. Not enough thrills and convincing performances, Deep Impact, like other disaster films, pretty much disappoints and entertains depending on the scene.

The best part of the movie is at the end when Tea Leoni's character hugs her father. It was very moving.

This film was a very well-rounded saga. First and foremost, it addressed ideals of a world terrorized by outside forces, a comet that has the potential to destroy much of the Earth in an incredibly devastating cataclysm. However, this film is set apart from movies like "Armageddon" by how human it is. The story is complex, yet much of the complexity comes from the human interactions, not necessarily the attempts to destroy the comet, but how everyone else has to deal with the consequences of the rescue operations. A wildly wonderful film with great performances by Elijah Wood, Tea Leoni, Morgan Freeman, and Leelee Sobieski. Powerful stuff.

A fun movie, but not as good as Armageddon. Wish this movie would have come out a different year.
