OH YEAH, EDGE OF YOUR SEAT -- WHO WILL LIVE AND WHO WILL DIE?? WILL THEY SAVE THE WORLD.
Noteworthy Space shuttle scenes -- very well done!! Nope, nothing I am going to spoil -- but ... wait for the unexpected to occur... plenty of suspense and heart touching moments.
Two things -- a pillow to grab in cliff hanger scary parts -- a kleenex for OH MY Word parts -- and popcorn, choice of suspense worthy TOOLS TO DEAL WITH OH NO OH NOOOOO part of movie!! ha ha ha
no I will NOT tell you how it ends -- I like all the actors in this film. Go to IMDB website for full list of actors. IMPRESSIVE CAST -- AMAZING ACTING. It's not Oscar level but darn good actors in this film HAVE won numerous awards!!
Amazon Streaming to 54 inch TV (approx) -- I do get darker richer, crisper picture on my 15" laptop -- the TV gives me theater feel & easier to SHARE the film while watching it.
I use cable high speed, yellow cable from modem to TV (not wireless) -- my tech support said quote " you have 40 signals for wireless coming INTO your apartment, you'll need an antenna on your laptop to focused / faster speed to YOUR specific server." Cord was $10-15 and the antennas cost $50 -- so I went with two cords -- one to laptop and one to TV. TA DA. SPEEDS JUMPED AWESOME!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FILM -- TOP LEVEL CAST -- THIS IS "A LIST" ACTORS FILM
SUPPORTING CAST OF ACTORS IS OUTSTANDING
YOU WANT TO SEE THIS ON DVD OR STREAMING WITH NO COMMERCIAL BREAKS -- BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT THE SUSPENSE THAT BUILDS --
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED EITHER DVD OR STREAMING

Great special effects and excellent acting all add together to create a film I have watched a number of times over the years.
This movie isn't without its plot flaws or technical errors and some of the acting could be better. There is a mix of strong believable actors (Morgan Freeman, Robert Duval, Vanessa Redgrave, James Cromwell) and less convincing ones (Elijah Wood, Tea Leoni, Maximilian Schell, Leelee Sobieski)
Sadly the emotional component of the film and the part for me that it is supposed to create the greated sense of fear, resignation and connection with the characters focuses on the actors that to me were less convincing.
Tea Leoni is convincing as Jenny Learner, the upcoming reporter who stumbles across E.L.E and is thrust into the limelight much to the chagrin of her boss Beth (Laura Innes) but as a feeling human wrestling with the personal consequences and possibilities of the impending disaster I just couldn't connect with her. Likewise the start contrast between her Mum Robin (Vanessa Redgrave) and father Jason (Maximilian Schell) was palpable. Vanessa shows her classic acting talent conveying a mixture of emotions allowing me to believe she was real woman torn apart by Jason's remarriage and the impending doom. Yet Schell to me was stilted and devoid of emotion, however I will admit I'm not a fan of his.
In a similar way the other emotional theme of the film centering around Leo and Sarah fails to me due to their acting skills.
I feel that Elijah succeeds a little more due to that he seems to have a natural face that looks permanently worried when not smiling. However Leelee has a spectacular fail to convey the deep distress she is feeling as her parents save her by sending her off with her baby brother/sister with Leo to avoid the onrushing tsunami.
This is in complete opposition to the deep personal trauma that is etched across Morgan Freemans face as the president addressing the nation when the last attempts to avert cataclysm fail and how the amazing James Cromwell as former secretary of state Alan Rittenhouse conveys a deep sense of hopelessness and resignation in his brief but powerful interview with Jenny Lerner.
It may seem by now that I've torn the film apart but somehow as a whole the movie works well especially the tear jearking end where the brave crew of the Messiah bid fairwell to their loved ones as they make the ultimate sacrifice to save them and the planet.
Thankfully to me there is not so much of the chest puffing adoration seeking US patriotism as they selflessly wade in to save the world once more. Yes the USA is instrumental in the effort to save the world, but there is non of the cringe worthy dialogue and unnecessary shots of the rest of the world gratefully celebrating the USA's benevolence.
Instead there are shots of the US bearing its share of the devastation and recognition of how the rest of the planet has suffered in the heartwarming motivational speach by the President (Freeman).
And this is key difference between Deep Impact and Armageddon, this film has attempted to base itself in humility not chest beating bravado and to me that is where it beats its blockbuster brother hands down.
The transfer for the bluray is good but not one of the best of seen for a film of this age with some noticeable grain in the film that I can only assume are artifacts as I can see no reason why artistically they would be present.
Sound wise is where my disappointment is, while its Dolby TrueHD the centre vocals were strangely muffled and for a first on my system with either DTS HD or TrueHD I had to up the volume to make them clear.
Also I never really felt enveloped in the sound stage, it felt strangely flat and all at the front except for odd occasions such as the Messiah around the comet and the onrush of the tsunami.
However despite the niggles of the transfer, weaker actors and flat sound stage this is a film that I love watching time and time again.
Deep Impact was always going to be a tough sell to the movie watching world. In spite of its best intentions to blend epic disaster with a great big human heart, Deep Impact neither appeased the sci-fi crowd or fulfilled the effects hungry popcorn brigade's gargantuan appetites. "Too talky" said one side of the cinema, "that's just ridiculous" said the other, "hey isn't this supposed to be a corny disaster film" asked the balcony, here in lays the problem. Director Mimi Leder and her writing team of Bruce Rubin and Michael Tolkin are guilty of not taking a side from which to launch their picture out of the mundane atmosphere. Or perhaps maybe, it was just a bold gamble that didn't pay off? but i'm sure nobody involved in the picture would have wanted the viewers to be hankering for the effects laden finale, and that's what happens, ultimately it's the so-so carnage that most end up remembering. Worst still is that outside of Téa Leoni's news lady central character, Jenny Lerner, no characters are fully formed to make us even care if they and the Earth actually survives. Which in a film pro porting to be an intimate study of relationships and how mankind copes with impending doom, is nearly unforgivable.
It's odd that in the same year as Bruce Willis and Michael Bay firmly went for the popcorn crowd with Armageddon, that Deep Impact was offered up as the thinking mans opposite side of the coin. Yet the reality is that Deep Impact got confused about its worth, and sadly falls some way short of being the fine movie that it obviously looked like being down on the page. A good cast is wasted and a brave move is sadly unrealised. 5/10 because deep down it does in fact pose some rather interesting questions, questions that at least make Deep Impact worth a revisit on a quiet and boring Sunday evening by the fire, but it's definitely a case of so near and yet so far far away.
