Hey, guys, some movies carry messages, they are not just empty entertainment. If this one does not merit five stars, doesn't matter. It carries a message, and it's this: "Life goes on but not for everyone." The worldwide emergency is possible reality, e.g. a grand epidemic. This movie talks of a hit by an asteroid, but the effect of such a global danger is the same as that of a "pandemic." The panic will be the same. And there is another message in this movie: the underground bunker towns that exist all over the developed world for the big fish guys. The wise guys on top are prepared, and it's true, as this movie also tells us, to go underground when the going goes very tough above ground. In this movie allegedly a computer will choose a limited number of people who can go into the safety of the bunkers underground, but I guess in this case democracy will not be the first priority. In the book of Milton William Cooper, "Behold a Pale Horse" he says there is a town underground under a mountain 50 miles from Washington, and it's called "Mount Weather" by those who know about it. Allegedly there is a big bunker complex under the airport of Denver too. I heard on talk radio that there is one in Alberta, underground. The impact of a plague or an asteroid is a real danger and this movie tells us messages on how things are and will be. During the Cold War (which was a scam) it was open secret that the rich were building bunkers against a nuclear attack by the Communists. This was the pretext, which sounded real to the public. North Korea is a scarecrow to keep us in awe of the Red Monster - Korea is kept alive only with huge food shipment daily from China. OK, so this movie is for real, and one day you may see the panic happening.

Remember the late 90s when they were a bunch of dueling movies? 2 WW2 movies, 2 volcano movies, 2 Elizabethan movies, 2 animated insect movies, 2 asteroid movies. "Armageddon" is ridiculous, but at least has more action. This one takes its sweet time with the impact and once it hits, it's not all that deep. It is amusing for its huge cast, which includes Morgan Freeman (black president y'all), Tea Leoni, Elijah Wood, Robert Duvall, Jon Favreau, Leelee Sobieski, Blair Underwood. . .Part of the great disaster movie revival of the 90s/00s. Also see "Twister," "Volcano," "The Day After Tomorrow," "Godzilla," "The Core," "Poseidon." P.S.-Wouldn't this make a good adult film title?

Can I rate this movie 0 stars? I find dramas boring, but this was mega boring. I wasted my good nights sleep by being stuck to my portable DVD player just waiting for the so called "awesome" tsunami. It lasted about 3 minutes and it made my mouth just drop to the floor. Even though Elijah Wood is a really good actor, this movie just FAILED. Spend your time watching The Day After Tomorrow. If I could, I would get every copy of this movie from the library and throw them out in the big bin in front of my house. Since I can't do 0 stars I will do half a star.

Ladies and Gentlemen.The President Of The United States....Good Evening. I bring you important news that you all need to hear. "Deep Impact" sound pretty good on your HOMETHEATER. Although this movie is simular to "Armageddon" or the other way around, i still enjoyed it. Morgan Freeman as the president was a very nice touch. He had to deliver devastating news to the world of the oncoming asteroids and possibility of the end of the world. Describing in detail of the lethal tidal wave that will wipe out parts of our world before the larger asteroid hits us. My friend prefered "Armageddon". She said there was more action and sound while this movie depended more on the story and emotions before the asteroid hits. I still thought this movie was ok. My favorite scene for sound was of course when the asteroid hits the earth. Creating a huge tital wave that destroys everything in it's path. The sound was well done. The visuals for this scene was excellent. Watching this huge tidal wave wipe out the tall buildings in Manhattan was an excellent visual effect. I give this movie 4 stars. Great visual effects, good sound effects, good acting, and a good story. Butterpopcorn, white cheddar popcorn, chips, tissues and pray.
