Heaven and Earth are about to collide.
A seven-mile-wide space rock is hurtling toward Earth, threatening to obliterate the planet. Now, it's up to the president of the United States to save the world. He appoints a tough-as-nails veteran astronaut to lead a joint American-Russian crew into space to destroy the comet before impact. Meanwhile, an enterprising reporter uses her smarts to uncover the scoop of the century.

I think is one of my favorites disaster movies, it has a feeling more good than the others with good visuals and a nice story. Sure it has cliches but they are not troubled nor ruin this movie. Totally underrated i may add.

As I have said before, I love disaster movies. Most often they are cheesy and predictable, but that's one of the reasons I love em. You know what you're gonna get.

Deep Impact is predictable alright, but this is one of the more intelligent disaster movies of its time. Overall a good effort by most of the actors. Téa Leoni doesn't work all that well in this one, but all the others way up for that. Especially Robert Duvall and Vanessa Redgrave.

Deep Impact is way better than it's over produced and incredibly cheesy contemporary Armageddon, and even though it's not exactly a classic, it's very good and I believe most people would be entertained.
