Deep Impact (1998)
A Film that is Definitely Worth Seeing
I first saw this movie when I was about ten. I didn't exactly follow it, I just wanted to see all the cool special effects. Then, just last week, I saw it again. To me, the movie was the real Armagedon. The film begins with a young astronomer noticing something out of place in the midnight sky. He sends the picture to an observatory, where the house astronomer makes a horrifying discovery...it's a comet on a collision course with Earth. In this film, the world governments have a year+ to come up with a plan to divert the comet. The plan is twofold, Land a large spacecraft on the comet, bury a couple of nukes 100m deep, blow the nukes and send the comet off course. If that fails, the government plans to move a couple hundred thousand people into NORAD (A nuke-proof fortress built into a mountain) and wait out the death, destruction, and mayhem. The film is focused on three people; a reporter, the young astronomer and his girlfriend, and the astronaut captain who leads the mission to save earth. Their paths never cross, yet their stories are woven together beautifully as they cope with a tidal wave of emotions that hit. This film is a bit sappy. Guys expect your girlfriend/wife to cry, you might even also. In the end, it's a story of sacrifice. True heroes, risking, giving up their lives for someone else. In the end, you'll find yourself depressed and uplifted at the same time.
