Fourteen-year-old Leo Beiderman (Elijah Wood) did not expect to make an earth-shattering discovery when he joined his high school astronomy club. He didn't expect to make any discoveries at all; he simply hoped that classmate Sarah Hotchner (Leelee Sobieski) would discover him. Yet a photograph he takes through his small telescope makes him co-discoverer of Comet Wolf-Beiderman...a comet that scientists determine is on a fatal collision course with the Earth.

What would you do if you knew that in a handful of days an enormous comet would collide with Earth and all humanity could be annihilated?

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

This in my opinion is far better than Armageddon dont get me wrong Armageddon was a great film but I feel this film was much stronger with emotions and story.
The film begins when a teenage amateur astronomer discover a comet on a direct collision course for the Earth. The world is then thrown into turmoil has humanity has to accept their possible extinction. While NASA sends a shuttle up with the intention to try to blow the comet to bits, the US government selects people to be saved in a cave they are building to withstand the event. Focusing on various unrelated characters, the film shows how people react differently to the destruction of all that they know.
Deep impact is differnt from many films as gives a very human side to tragedy and devastation by showing how ordinary people cope in times of crisis but it avoids the trap of being trite and overly-sentimental. Hence the 5stars i give it

 Great concept - Poorly Acted and To slow Paced - Truly Poor

The cover of this DVD relates to the last 10 minute sof the film in which 4 minutes is the Credits. The film, which deals with how America only would deal with the threat of knowing for years that a rogue asteroid would hit the Earth and be an Extinction Level Event.

Meant to be the thinking mans movie, this is poor, drab and ultimatly pointless. It lacks excitment, dynamics and character.

Characters are very one dimensional and the bulk of the story being told by Tea Leoni in a newsreading studio lacks the dynamic and emotion that telling the story possibly any other way would not have resolved in.

This lack of connecting with the characters leaves you emotionless as the image shown on the DVD cover happens. Worse still, Elijah Wood and his female counter part in early roles are so annoying you wish they'd just be quiet.

The final visual effects sequence is very good, but Elijah Wood out running a 200 metre high 1000 mph tidle wave on a mountain cross bike is totally unrealistic.

I'd avoid if possible, Armagedon is far better

 An Excellent hit

This film is very good. The plot is very well and is really dramatic to make sure the audience keep watching because they cant litreally keep there eyes off the screen. The acting is very good and the visual and special effects are also very good and make the film a real gem and I really enjoyed watching this. This film is edge of the seat action, it is very well done and has an excellent plot which alltogether makes it an excellent film.

 Affecting and thoughtful

This film is the flipside of 1998's other asteroid movie, 'Armageddon'. Where that movie was about big action and heroes, 'Deep Impact' is more introspective and lower-key. In some places, it's probably too matter-of-fact about the unfolding chaos - but where it counts, it's genuinely moving. Great performances all-round, just the right amount of special effects, and a film I try to watch at least once a year.

 its the end of the world as we know it
