The other world-destroying comet flick of 1998, Mimi Leder’s DEEP IMPACT distinguishes itself in comparison to Michael Bay’s Armageddon. Where Bay relies on macho bravura and scenes of mass destruction, Leder’s film instead focuses on the human effort it takes to try to both attempt a rescue mission and plan for the worst case scenario. Brattle Debut!

Staff Pick!

“Although often compared to Armageddon (which was released the same summer), the scope and tone of this story feels a lot more like the classic sci-fi novels ‘Lucifer’s Hammer’ and ‘Footfall’ by Niven and Pournelle. Come watch the world get blown up on the big screen! You’ll understand why they had to take Jolt Cola off the grocery shelves!” – Tom R.
