Very Ambitious, But... It comes up pretty short, Armageddon has its pros with beautiful visuals and some really ambitious moments, But it’s far too confusing in some scenes. Overall Armageddon’s okay but it could’ve been a lot better.

A very deep sea oil rig team is hired by NASA to save the world by blowing up a asteroid that is on a collision course with the world. This movie was a box office hit back in 1998 and I think this movie was copying a other movie that didn't do well and is it just me or 1998 was the year for copying.

Unbelievably dumb (even by Hollywood standards) space-bound actioner crammed to bursting with nonsensical cliches and two dimensional characters. And could someone PLEASE explain to me why a lunar rover would have a bloody mini-gun attached to it??

Endlich gibt es ihn, den 150 minütigen Trailer! Denn nichts weiter ist Armageddon: Ein Attentat auf unsere Sinne, unseren Verstand, unseren Geschmack. Einfach 30 Sekunden aus jeder Szene knipsen und wir könnten sogar 150 Trailer daraus basteln! Der Plot setzt sich aus verschiedenen SciFi Standarts zusammen, in denen die Welt bedroht ist. Verglichen mit Armageddon müssten die aber allesamt auf einer erlesenen Liste des Goethe Instituts stehen. Bruce Willis und sein Team haben nun in Hochgeschwindigkeit die Aufgabe, ein 800 Meter tiefes Loch zu buddeln, eine Bombe hineinzustecken, um so den Asteroiden abzuschiessen, der bei Misserfolg die Erde trifft. Immerhin besitzt er die Grösse von ganz Texas! Wir könnten das jetzt nachrechnen, ob nicht schon ein Asteroid der Grösse von Houston …

MegaBudget Action Flick = Decent Entertainment

Once again Bruce Willis is given the simple task of saving the world in this mega-zillion-budget bigboys' joyride. An asteroid the size of Texas is about to do to us what another big rock did to the dinosaurs millions of years back (as we are told by Charlton "Moses" Heston in the opening credits). Swedish Peter Stormare -who steals every scene he's in as a russian cosmonaut- said to the media after seeing the final version of "Armageddon" that "They cut out all the good parts!", and apparently ever since he has tried to forget he ever involved himself in this project. The movie sure looks like they left hours on the cutting room floor, but if you just don't think too much about it what's left still makes for good friday night entertainment. Buscemi is once again left with all the smart …
