About this movie

From the blockbuster-making team who produced and directed PEARL HARBOR and THE ROCK (Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay) comes the biggest movie of 1998 -- ARMAGEDDON! Starring the explosive talents of Bruce Willis (DIE HARD), Academy Award(R)-winners Ben Affleck (GOOD WILL HUNTING) and Billy Bob Thornton (SLING BLADE), Liv Tyler (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy), Steve Buscemi (CON AIR), and Will Patton (GONE IN 60 SECONDS), ARMAGEDDON is a meteor storm of action-adventure moviemaking that has you on the edge of your seat forgetting to breathe! When NASA's executive director, Dan Truman (Thornton), realizes the Earth has 18 days before it's obliterated by a meteor the size of Texas, he has only one option -- land a ragtag team of roughneck oil drillers on the asteroid and drop a nuclear warhead into its core. Spectacular special effects, laugh-out-loud humor, great characters, riveting storytelling, and heartfelt emotion make ARMAGEDDON an exhilarating thrill ride you'll want to experie © 1998 Touchstone Pictures

When I first saw this in the cinema years ago. I hated it. I hated all Michael Bay movies. As I get older I think I get the jock. Everything is aimed at a very specific audience. Suspend any expectations and sense of intelligence and just enjoy it. Only movie snobs hate these films. For the record my favourite films are PT Anderson 's.

This has a solid mix of cheese, over the top heroism, clichés and unbelievable-ness, but works really well. Fortunately it's got a strong experienced cast, otherwise it would be just another Bay joke. The performances and characters carry the film.
