  3. deep impact is not only emotional, but also more realistic. End of world itself is emotional.

    In DeepImpact, they use external nuclear propulsion system to make it all the way to comet. and use the”Bipod” to execute the landing mission. very detail and well considered.

    on the other hand, Armageddon. Minigun in space ?? Really ?? Seriously ?? They use normal space shuttle, which knew as only has enough fuel to reach International space station. And yet, they put some minigun onboard !!

    Conclusion, Armageddon is just like another Jacky Chan movie. ha ha ha ha and have a good night.

    Just like many other people here, “I have to say that Deep Impact is the way better movie.”
