For the first time since Titanic we in South Africa have been fortunate to see a big blockbuster movie just a week after its US release. Deep Impact made a huge impact on the US box office with a $41.2 million dollar opening weekend. The biggest non summer opening since Twister in 1996.
Obviously from these impressive figures it is easy to deduce movie audiences are starved for some decent big budget movie events. But the question is does Deep Impact deliver the goods? How would it have faired had it been released in the midst of the overwhelming summer competition such as Godzilla, X-Files and the other comet disaster movie Armegeddon.
It is a difficult question and one that will only be answered once all the movies have finished their prospective runs in the theaters and the final totals have been totalled by that strange breed of creature, the Hollywood auditor.
Well for my money Deep Impact lacked an essential ingredient to any action movie. A dire lack of action. There's a lot of talking, shots people running about as the end of the world draws nearer. But still essentially nothing much happens. Mimi Leder is a good action director and I quite enjoyed Peacemaker last year from her, but this movie is boring.
Don't get me wrong. Deep Impact isn't all bad. The scenes when the space ship intercepts the comet are great. As well as when the astronauts are on the comet. Great special effects of rocks flying, huge bursts of steam shooting out. But these don't save the movie. They only make you wonder more. Why did they not just use all their nukes instead on just four?
But perhaps the biggest problem with Deep Impact is the fact that the only scenes of mass destruction we are treated to are right up until the last 5 minutes of the movie. So in other words you have to spend two hours of non action to see 3 minutes of some action. This equation doesn't add up. If you want to make a disaster movie you should have chaos and mayhem from the word go, building up to the final huge cataclysmic event. Maybe Armegeddon will deliver on this promise. Word of mouth on the movie looks really great.
In conclusion I would have to say Deep Impact would have worked as a television mini-series. Women might also enjoy its focus on emotion instead of action.

It just blow you away... both... Tea Leoni and the special effects !!!
