Deep Shock is a science-fiction thriller movie that was released in 2003. The film takes place in the year 2020 and revolves around a team of scientists who are on a mission to save the Earth from complete destruction. The movie stars David Keith, Simmone Mackinnon, and Mark Sheppard in lead roles. The film opens with the discovery of a giant asteroid headed towards Earth. The asteroid is so large that it could wipe out all life on Earth upon impact. With just seven days left until the catastrophic event, a team of scientists is assembled to go on a mission to try and divert the asteroid from its collision course with the planet.

Leading the group of scientists is Dr. Clayton Shepard (played by David Keith), who is a renowned astrophysicist. He is joined by his ex-wife Dr. Amanda Mayson (played by Simmone Mackinnon) who is a geologist, and Dr. Gordon (played by Mark Sheppard) who is a computer scientist. Together, the three scientists must work around the clock to try and come up with a plan to save the planet.

The team quickly realizes that their best chance of success is to use a powerful nuclear device to alter the asteroid's trajectory. However, the problem is that they need to maneuver the device very carefully to avoid hitting any crucial areas of the asteroid that could potentially turn it into an even bigger threat.

As the time inches closer to the asteroid's collision with Earth, the team discovers that they are not alone in their mission. A secret government organization known as The Consortium has been working on a top-secret project called the "Deep Shock" which is supposed to act as a fail-safe in case their mission fails. This information puts the team even more under pressure as they are not sure what the secret organization has up its sleeve.

The movie is full of suspenseful moments and high-stakes action scenes as the protagonists work toward their goal of saving the planet. Adding to the tension is the fact that the team only has limited time to pull off their mission before it's too late.

The character development in the movie is well done, and the audience gets a chance to know each of the three protagonists. The emotional undercurrents of the film are interesting and highlight the relationships between Dr. Shepard and Dr. Mayson as well as how they struggle to deal with their past.

The overall quality of the film is good, with great cinematography and special effects. The scenes of the asteroid hurtling towards Earth are visually stunning, and the suspenseful musical score helps to heighten the tension.

Despite its age, Deep Shock is still worth watching for fans of the science-fiction genre. It offers a cinematic depiction of a potential world-ending crisis and explores the effects of such a situation on the people involved. While some of the science behind the mission might seem a little far-fetched, it doesn't detract from the fun of watching the team trying to pull off the impossible.

In conclusion, Deep Shock is an enjoyable science-fiction thriller that delivers on both action and character development. The movie offers a fresh spin on the disaster genre by exploring how science can be our only hope in the face of complete annihilation. Fans of the genre should give it a try.

Deep Shock is a 2003 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.1.
