You can enjoy the way they create little flashes of wit in the dialogue, which enlivens what is, after all, a formula disaster movie. show more
Unfortunately, an A-list group of actors doesn't mean a lot when there isn't much of a script. show more
Deep Impact, a triple-strand ensemble disaster flick, has a few good opening minutes, the biggest tidal wave you've ever seen in the closing minutes, and a cluster of little meandering melodramas in between. show more
Well i was in that movie, and it was the most fun i've ever had. Working for Dreamworks was a blast "no pun intended" heh heh, they paid extra's well back in 98'. I also got to meet Elijah woods pre-Rings, and he really did ride that motocycle there was no stunt double, and Morgan Freeman was cool too, he's just as down to earth as he's depicted in the movies, there really is no difference off screen, he's a really common person, sanz multi-millions... :D I remember being able to watch the dailys right 2 feet behind and over the shoulder of Elijah Woods. I remember take after take, and it was HOT like 95 degrees hot. It was pretty wild seeing the set. One scene all of the people had to look at the asteroid/comet coming right over our heads, to get everyone to "see" the comet, they used a helicopter and flew it over our heads at 70 mph using it's spotlight as a reference point for the actors. Another scene had us yelling and honking at each other in a traffic jam on the highway, we shot from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a few days. Everyone had to use our radios for direction cues in our cars.
Awesome depiction of what could happen....a little busy in the beginning with all the political jargon, but once thats over, its totally edge-of-your seat and wonderful special effects!
