Mimi Leder (The Peacemaker) directed this science-fiction disaster drama about the possible extinction of human life after a comet is discovered headed toward Earth with the collision only one year away. Ambitious MSNBC reporter Jenny Lerner (Tea Leoni) stumbles onto the story, prompting a White House press conference. United States President Beck (Morgan Freeman) announces the government's solution: a team of astronauts will travel to the comet and destroy it. The team leader aboard the

a little too melodramatic
Unlike Armageddon, this film possesses a plot. Granted, it is the insipid plot of a made-for-TV miniseries, but at least it is an actual, tangible plot.
a crockful of hard-to-swallow melodrama... It would have been much more fun to drop in on the folks who elected to party like it's never gonna be 1999.
Parece que a diretora Mimi Leder realmente acreditou que seus personagens fossem interessantes, bem como a história. Não são.
A disaster film where some the lead characters practice kindness,courage and compassion in unique ways.
One could say Deep Impact is an above average action movie or an average drama...any movie with Morgan Freeman is president is OK by me.
Mimi Leder's end-of-the-world pic places intelligent human dramas -- how people really feel and react to life-threatening situations -- above predictable histrionics.
The characters they've chosen to focus on are so thin and uninteresting (and sometimes downright irritating), all you're left to root for is the comet's speedy arrival.
The direction and script is so confusing and so riddled with holes that you'll spend the hour after the movie discussing all of its problems with your date and friends.
For all the money ($80 million) spent on this early mid-year entry, all you, the viewer, get is Dull Impact.
The first of the '90s disaster films to successfully marry the advanced film technology with emotions that ring true.
