Deep Impact has all the makings of a cinematic masterpiece but falls just a tad bit short of joining the all-time classics.

There are some impressive disaster effects in the final hour, and thanks to some clever and knowing twists, Deep Impact keeps you averagely entertained right up until the cataclysmic tidal-wave finale.

A huge comet is on a collision course with Earth in director Mimi Leder's science-fiction disaster movie, which gains a certain amount of credibility by highlighting the human side of the impending catastrophe.

Deep Impact isn't especially deep, and the extent of its impact seems limited. But it does turn out to be a fairly involving movie.

Neither deep nor impactive, but goes well with popcorn.

An effective and entertaining catastrophic drama that sets itself apart by giving its attention to personal stakes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director Mimi Leder admirably insisted on making the human relationships count for as much as the cheap thrills in this killer- comet movie. But the cheap thrills -- expensive thrills, actually -- are mostly what make Deep Impact fun to watch.

Twenty years on, this tide is finally turning, and as it comes in Deep Impact deserves to be not swept away from its lonely beachhead, but swept up and celebrated as a trailblazing entry in the disaster movie canon.

All in all the impact of Mimi Leder's picture is indeed suprisingly deep. Translation: I cried.

While the film is flawed, lacks desperately needed humor and is filled with cliches, the attempt to explore the human cost of all those cool explosions and destruction is an admirable one.

Deep Impact deserves credit for breaking new ground in the action-movies field, and I'm not talking about the terrific special effects... the film spends time and attention on the emotional life of its characters.
March 2, 2002
A disaster film where some the lead characters practice kindness,courage and compassion in unique ways.
October 24, 2001
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.

If you must ask for whom the bell tolls, you'll find the answer here.
