    "Matt Damon was at his best in this movie. There was no need for great action-scenes here. He just acted naturally. Those guys from NASA kinda reminded me of how those people from the Apollo 13 movie acted and really, it has a certain allure. "

    "Nevermind the dumbed-down science. I actually prefer it that way so that most of us can understand what's happening in the movie. While that part is certainly true for most people, what this movie can dumb-down is the premise that this future is possible. A future where food is scarce and the only chance of survival is getting off the planet. I also loved how the actors performed in this movie. "

    "I thought people from NASA were just a bunch of geek sitting on their consoles each day thinking things up. This movie showed me otherwise and my respect for those people grew. The way they handled the Apollo 13 tragedy is simply fantastic. A lesser being would have cracked under pressure. Now I understand why they take things so seriously over there. KUDOS NASA!"

    "Tell me, did you cry during Bruce Willis's and Liv Tyler's last conversation? Nevermind the time-lag that should have been there. LOL!!!! That scene alone would have been enough to rank this number 1. But then again, it is not a perfect movie. But it is certainly one of the best sci-fi films of all time."

    "I am one of those few who thinks that Deep Impact is better than Armageddon. Listen, I think Armageddon is good and all, with a great cast and with a great storyline. But I think that film neglected those very same people they were aiming to save. So, Deep Impact focused on those people on Earth who's at the mercy of NASA's team. So, of course, there would be different reactions and that makes this film so believable."

    "Well, it was kind of boring actually with great scenes here and there. There is no denying that Sandra Bullock is a gifted actress. Without her, this film would suck bigtime."

    "Girl power. This is what it's all about. Set in a time when women were practically powerless in a male-dominated workplace. You can see how Katherine Johnson struggled just to be noticed and prove that she is as good if not better than the other people in her division. Tajari Henson owned the role and was a revelation in this film."
