Depends more on the quality of its special effects than on the strength of its story, thrills, or characters.

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.
