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??

NASA discovers an asteroid about to crash to Earth. Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton) plans to embed a nuclear device 800 feet within the asteroid. A team is created for this project with the likes of Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis), A. J. Frost (Ben Affleck), "Rockhound" (Steve Buscemi), Grace (Liv Tyler) and "Bear" (Michael Clarke Duncan). So many stars and yet the cheesy dialogue, poor character development (despite the loaded talents involved) and stunning special effects reign. Armageddon is an example of a disastrous disaster film with the lack of basic elements of a good film.

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 …

The Plot of Armageddon: While fixing a satellite in orbit, the Space Shuttle Atlantis is destroyed by a meteor shower, killing the entire team. Meteorites then bombard New York City and several other parts of the world, and NASA discovers that an asteroid named Dottie, named after Karl wife Dottie. Dottie is the size of Texas, and is travelling at 22,000 miles per hour; it will collide with Earth in 18 days, effectively destroying the planet. The scientists at NASA are cooperating with the Russian space station to watch meteor, and plan how to detonate a nuclear bomb in the Dottie’s core which will split it in two, and cause it to miss the …

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 …
