When an asteroid threatens to collide with Earth, NASA honcho Dan Truman determines the only way to stop it is to drill into its surface and detonate a nuclear bomb. This leads him to renowned driller Harry Stamper, who agrees to helm the dangerous space mission provided he can bring along his own hotshot crew. Among them is the cocksure A.J. who Harry thinks isn't good enough for his daughter, until the mission proves otherwise.

Absolutely Fantastic


Great special effects but not quite real. Oil drillers saving the planet in space in 18 days? This film is sucking up. Lots of funny moments though, like a spoof of the apollo program.

Best comedy movie I ever ever ever sat through. Bruce's Tiger Woods moments, haha, and then chasing and shooting at affleck on an oil rig. I would think that would be rather dangerous with all those pipes and flammable liquids. It was so funny, though. I was actually disappointed that this movie then turned....serious? I just laughed and laughed. Billy bob, you tried to act so cool with your "size of Texas" and other remarks. What a comedian! And then, the whole crew with their demands, like not wanting to pay taxes. Ha ha snort snort. And then (jumping to the end of this jewel because I don't want to waste any more time with this review), the editing. EDITING? I don't know which was worse, the editing or the worthless script. That wasn't editing. There were so many jumps from one scene to another near the finale, that my head started spinning and I started laughing just so I wouldn't throw up from the over-assault of my visual senses and from the dizziness brought on. I hadn't felt that queasy since having sat through the Blair Witch Project with its incessant camera shaking. I laughed but not all the way to the bank as this sorry cast did. Fact is, this movie actually made me mad when I left the theatre. What a sorry, sorry mess. Yes, I was laughing mad. I would classify this as the best comedy ever and the worst serious movie ever and right on par with another very expensive worthless flick, the Wild Wild West. What absolutely amazes me is the amount of money this stupid travesty brought in. I look back and wonder why the hell there wasn't a class action lawsuit filed against the concocters of this comedic garbage. I have never asked a theatre for my money back. I was a fool for not doing so after sitting through this laughable comedy.

it's a first movie in Hollywood in which i see all phases of human life . like from sci-fi action to comedy , emotional to love scene . an epic movie which i love to watch more and more times . Movie start from a emotional tensed scene then goes to a love making scene then again goes to a comedy scene a total overall fantastic movie . love to see again and Bollywood you may get many example of movies in which u can see emotion , drama,love tragedy etc but in Hollywood there are a few movies in which we see emotion and true love and this movie is great example of total overall a blasting movie .A superb movie for all taste lovers .

I realize everyone's already asked this question, but it's still worth asking: Criterion? Really? There's a lot wrong with "Armageddon". The choking sentiment; the specious logic; bad science; awful dialogue; and (hands down) the worst movie song I've ever heard. One good thing is that it's not Michael Bay's worst movie. That's something. But it is his patented sensory assault; between the dizzying cuts and the restless camera, this must be what a coke binge feels like.4/10 While we're on the subject, how did they arrive at Aerosmith for the radio tie-in? I guess when you've got a ballad on your hands, who better to tackle that beast than a cat in a blender?
