Plot: After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, N.A.S.A. recruits a misfit team of deep core drillers to save the planet. Runtime: 151 mins Release Date: 01 Jul 1998
this movie is arguably one of the best movies i have ever seen and to be honest i can NOT understand its current IMDb rating... it has everything in needs to be a movie worth remembering after tens of years! it can put a large smile on your face in its funny moments, and it WILL bring tears in your eyes in its most emotional moments... this movie is a reminder of why human life is worth cherishing, worth fighting for, worth DYING for... it features great human valors such as love, forgiveness, heroism, sacrifice, sturdiness.. i must have seen it at least 8 times by now and it never, NEVER <more>
ceases to impress me to the point of tears.. to conclude with, i am very disappointed in the viewers that voted on this movie here.. honestly it deserves 10/10
This is definitely the type of movie you'll either love or hate. I personally love it, I am a Die Hard lol Bruce Willis fan. All characters were supurbly cast. Busemi as Rock, Affleck as AJ, Tyler as Grace, Thornton as Truman, ect.... All of them seemed to work well together. Their character just fit them. Lots of people didn't like this movie for they believed that it is too far fetched, which isn't true. One of NASA's theories IS to land on, and drill into a "global killer". And as it is also said in the movie we don't have the budget to look for these <more>
things. Amatures are the people that usually find them. Another thing people over look is the fact that Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer worked with NASA on the factual aspects of the movie. They didn't just make these things up. all of this is said in the commentaries on the criterion collection The other thing about this movie is, you have to like science, space and the things that go with it like me "aero_nut" . And you have to appreciate the fact, and not be obtuse that this could happen one day, God destroyed the Earth before he could do it again. I really believe that the love story helped this movie make money, thats what made Titanic #1 , Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck made a great couple. The chemistry between them was awesome. Not to mention this is americans at their best, with the help of a russian friend, who is perfectly cast as stormare . The love song to this movie is definitely a topper, Dianne Warren has graced so many movies with her songs and this has to be the best so far. Furthermore very few rock bands can sound good with a orchestra, G-N-R is one and Aerosmith certainly fit the bill here. i love this cast the movie and the soundtrack, but thats just me.
Ok, so you can't drive down an asteroid (by Dave-448)
This may not be the most scientifically accurate movie ever made but who cares. It was fun. It was exciting, action packed from beginning to end but more importantly you had empathy with the characters. You actually cared what happened to them.Armageddon is an excellent movie. A must see.
Darn good popcorn movie (by reservoir_cats_1989)
I don't care if it's a popcorn movie by intention. It's still a darn good movie. One that I can watch many times."The characters are predictable". Someone took this as a negative, but the reviewer was quite far from proving his point. Well, in case of Rock Hound, you can't really say that, can you? And neither can you in case of Harry Stomper. Would you say that Colonel Willie Sharp was predictable? Or Dan Truman? Not so, sorry.True, the story is a little far fetched. Then again no one remembers "Deep Impact", which was more or less about the same event, <more>
except written and performed so insignificantly, it felt into oblivion.The jokes. The funny situations. The funny dialogs. "Gee, lady, I just came here to drill". "So did I!" This movie has the cinematographic equivalent of salt and pepper, and just about right mix of the laughing gas and tear gas.For a long time I didn't know that, but I have been turning into a Michael Bay's fan. I saw him 2 times in this movie. He acted pretty well as a 2nd level supporting actor, but his real value is in directing and producing. I never expected Transformes to get my attention, and they did, which in itself is a big achievement.
A very underrated great movie! (by feliciansilviu)
Looking at what other people had said about this movie, it really gave me a clear picture of the general public's intellectual capacity. I mean, we have great actors, a great story even if it's old , and, most of all, a wonderful directing. You can even feel the thrill and the happiness when the job is done, that great the movie is. This movie smells from far as being a high-quality one. Special effects, well, they are astounding, nothing else to say. And Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck are really amazing, also the other guys have done a great job. What a hell, maybe this is what makes <more>
this movie so good, the performance of all the actors, not just those two. And I see here one guy that tells this is a "popcorn movie". Unbelievable. What's a good movie for guys like him, Saw, Borat, Harry Potter, etc? But this is a fact, people, in general, do not appreciate good quality movies or music, nor the guys in the Oscar committee. Michael Bay, even if you don't read this, you did a wonderful job, keep up with the good work.
An entertaining movie, what it was meant to be... (by Zephyr75)
Of course i've heard all the input as far as this movie goes. Oh it was so bad, it was unrealistic, no real plot, too over the top. Well so what! Bruckheimer and Bay set out to do exactly what they meant to do. That was to make an entertaining, explosive, summer adventure. That's right a popcorn movie. That's exactly what I expect from this duo, and nothing less than that. Not unless it was meant to on their part, other than that I look forward to these kind of pictures The Rock, Con Air, Pearl Harbor . This is just meant to take us out of our own reality for a moment 2+ hours , <more>
and let us enjoy an entertaining piece of work. So what, it's not going to win best picture at The Academy Awards. Do you really think Bay didn't know that when he set out on this project. Of course he did, but the thing I like about his filmmaking is that you can tell that he has a lot of fun doing what he loves doing. And I say keep on trucking. Not a summer goes by that i'm not looking forward to some Bruckheimer, or Michael Bay production. Bring on the explosions...
My Ultimate Guilty Pleasure- how do you assign a rating to that? (by madmaxmedia)
This movie is my ultimate guilty pleasure. It's inane, manipulative, has hyperactive cutting, a ton of glaring inaccuracies pointless to even discuss or debate , and probably 29 other glaring faults. And why in every dramatic slow-mo emo shot are there 3 helicopters flying in unison overhead? What's the point of having 3 helicopters flying really close together? Who cares! It looks cool. If one day I am having a heartfelt talk with my daughter, I hope there are 3 helicopters flying overhead to really 'bring it home' and Aerosmith performing in the background. Despite it all, <more>
I still love watching this movie. Anytime it is on TV I can watch it 'til the end. Bruce Willis does a great job doing his Bruce Willis 'thing' smart alecky tough guy , and the supporting cast is really great. Steve Buschemi in particular gets the best lines. An awesome assortment of ragtag castoffs spitting funny one-liners must save the world- who would have thunk it?I think Armageddon was actually conceived by suits in a studio office no really, I read that in a magazine , which is I guess another strike against it. Yet only a bunch of suits could come up with a 'high concept' like this so high it's basically a parody by itself. And only a director like Michael Bay could make it. He's far more suited to these types of movies, rather than big historical epics like PEARL HARBOR which I really, really disliked. I read somewhere once that this movie is as close as Hollywood gets to pure cinema, in that it is basically completely divorced from reality of any kind. Is that good or bad? I don't know. I do think if you're going to ditch convention and any semblance to reality, you may as well go all the way. It's better than having something that is a confused mess that tries to be different things Pearl Harbor. There will be no 'it could really happen!' here.So after all this, believe it or not I am going to give this movie a big fat whopping 8. Why? Because IMO it unabashedly succeeds at what it tries to set out to be, whatever that is. That makes no sense, since I am basically saying by all logical accounts this movie may actually suck, yet I am giving it a 8. But hey I loved this movie.
I don't care if it is shallow, i love it (by mjw2305)
What did everyone expect when this film was released, i expected exactly what i got, stunning visual effects, good surround sound and plenty of action and yes i expected the traditional dose of sentiment too This movie is pure escapism fun, which has its place in my collection, movies like Independence Day and Armageddon are great fun to watch and as a bonus the characters weren't bad the script was reasonable and action was indeed plentiful. There were a great deal of laughs too mostly intentional anyone who hasn't seen this but just wants relax and enjoy a good yet Shallow <more>
action flick then this certainly fits the bill.For pure entertainment value i score it 8/10If this is for you then check out The Core and Independence Day, avoid the Day after Tomorrow and Deep Impact, there not really for action fans.
This movie seems to be a movie that many people love to hate. I don't see why it has such a bad reputation. It is meant to be an Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie, and it definitely lives up to this. It is what it is. Many people have tried to compare it to Apollo 13, but that's like comparing apples and oranges. They are entirely different fruit. Apollo 13 is based on a true historical event Docu-drama , while Armageddon is an Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie. It has plenty of action and adventure, a lot of humor, and a bit of romance. Is the story realistic? Not hardly, but name ANY <more>
Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie that is. That's why they call it Science FICTION... For those who criticize this movie, nothing will change their minds. However, if you HAVEN'T seen Armageddon, take a chance, watch with an open mind and try not to let all these negative reviews spoil your enjoyment of a really fun movie. Remember, a movie is meant to ENTERTAIN, and Armageddon does just that, if you let it!
