Deep Impact

A reporter uncovers a government cover-up of a comet hurtling towards Earth, forcing a plan to save humanity.


Why watch this film?

Interesting fact: 'Deep Impact' was released the same summer as Michael Bay's famous 'Armageddon', which affected its popularity and box office performance. However, if you're looking for a movie about humanity's struggle to survive an impending meteorite impact, focusing more on characters than action, then this is your best choice. 'Deep Impact' focuses on a journalist (Téa Leoni) investigating a strange rumor around the President of the United States (Morgan Freeman), only to uncover the truth: an asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. It may be a bit melodramatic at times, but it captures and conveys the tragedy of such a scenario. The story follows several subplots featuring a great ensemble cast, including in addition to Leoni and Freeman, legendary Robert Duvall, Elijah Wood, and Jon Favreau, among others.
