DEEP IMPACT (Theatrical release USA 1998)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Deep Impact features an outstanding cast—Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni, Morgan Freeman, and a teenager, Elijah Wood. The movie serves the disaster genre well, has good timing, and provides appropriate drama at critical junctures throughout the film. Great work for Director Mimi Leder. The movie deserves its watch.

Storyline

A comet, on a collision course to Earth, causes mass panic and creates the situation where tough decisions must be made about who will live and who will die.
