An obnoxious, brain-dead movie made even worse by that damn Aerosmith song that you couldn't escape for the next three years. The fact that this got a Criterion release will forever mystify me. Also, I'm convinced no one in Hollywood knows what "Armageddon" actually means.

Nuclear devices have to be detonated manually. Oil miners make awesome astronauts. There's no physics or gravity in space. Girls hug their fiances (who they thought were dead) like their weird old uncle Travis. And asteroids get to break all the rules. I'm giving it 1 point because it won't let me give it zero. Update: I can now give it zero. This is the best moment of my life.

It's hilarious to me that NASA thought it would be easier to train oil riggers to be astronauts than astronauts to be oil riggers. How do we save the world from imminent destruction? DRILL BABY, DRILL! The worst part of all this -- other than, well, all of it -- is just how many talented actors are on-board for this shitfest. A movie with this cast and this concept could be inconcievably awesome, but this script is non-stop fail. Hell, Deep Impact is better than this.

This is the epitome of everything that is wrong with Hollywood. Only see if you think loud music, screaming, and quick cuts are essential ingredients for a film. If any of these annoy you (and they should) avoid this at all costs.

The saddest thing about this Michael Bay 'masterpiece' is the fact that every actor of the stellar cast didn't have the backbone to say no to the huge paycheck they were offered to film this flimsy excuse of a screenplay. Over the top, an excess of loud MTV editing combined with little to no decent character development apart from the cliches the actors are dropped in. This film ,like most of the Michael Bay fare, looks good but feels flat out empty.

A member of the crew, a US Demolisions specialist, forgets how to disarm a missile with the "red or green wire" cliche during this film to create superficial tension. Keep in mind this isn't a terrorist bomb but a US made nuclear device this person was TRAINED on how to disarm. Needless to say this movie is absolutely atrocious.

Do you like implausible sci-fi scenarios involving asteroids? A lot of big name actors hamming it up? A rock soundtrack that just screams 90's? Liv Tyler? There's nothing remotely intelligent about Armageddon. The whole movie is like one big music video with plenty of the same excessive stylistic shots. This is Michael Bay doing what he does best..big, loud, and stupid.

Occasionally amusing, but mostly retarded. There are at least four scenes involving something being fixed at the last possible second. Very irritating. Still, if you're going to watch a huge-budget Hollywood disaster movie, this is probably the one to go with.

That it asks the viewer to earnestly consider the drama of this most haphazard scientific venture is absurd, but more confusing is that it actually takes itself only half-seriously. Each solemn moment of mass death, destruction, and tragedy is followed immediately by antics and quipping. If it leaned completely into comedy it might actually be good, but as stands it's a tolerable and often amusing blockbuster, one half-spent laughing with but otherwise laughing at in mordant disbelief.

"Regarding the film's premise, Ben Affleck asked director Michael Bay, "Wouldn't it be easier for NASA to train astronauts how to drill rather than training drillers to be astronauts?" Bay told Affleck to shut up." Nuff said.

Effective public health warning about the dangers of space dementia. Also, a father learns to accept his daughter's independence and the inevitability of his own mortality. Aside from that, a fantasy about some regular joes who hitch a ride into space and save the world. Loud and frenetic, but a likeable cast and occasional humour go some way to distracting attention from the formulaic narrative. Not a good film, but not really much worse than numerous other more highly-regarded blockbusters.

No. No no no. This movie is like a virus in my brain, and it HURTS. It hurts my brain when shuttles explode, in space, for no reason. It hurts when Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler spew their "acting" all over the screen. And it's just excruciating when I try to watch a high-suspense scene about an astronaut who FALLS DOWN A WELL. IN SPACE. It's not fun, it's not exciting, it's not even watchable. Ten points for Bruce Willis, who technically appears in this movie, even if no one told him that.

This movie is just so loud and abrasive. I'm not just talking about the pointless explosions (which are many), but even the dialogue feels more like each character either shouting smartass (usually lame) quips to no one or emoting in hyperbolic excess rather than an actual conversation.

A master class in pulling heart-strings, if not in Astro-physics .... but hey, who would have thought that getting decimated on an asteroid 200,000 miles from earth could be so much fun? In 1999, there was a US wide shortage of the "right stuff" as a result of this load of ol' nonsense ... but hey, Steve Buscemi is wonderful, and Liv Tyler is hard not to fall in love with. Sure, rip it apart on so many levels if you want, but just be aware if you do that you are the wrong audience for it anyway!

A typical Michael Bay fair boosted by Willis and Duncan but brought quickly down to earth by the pure irritation of watching Affleck and Tyler bluff their way through the entire film. Bloody hell they're bad. As for the rest of the film, Bay takes a decent idea and once again runs away with it packing in as many explosions and incomprensible incompitence over the whole space trip as possible. Somebody tell Bay that crappy romantic melodrama and explosions don't mix when you have zero talent.

Armageddon is not an intelligent movie. If you're watching movies, particularly Hollywood blockbusters, for accurate science, you're doing things wrong. They have a plot and they're rolling with it, no matter how cringe worthy the science is. If you understand that you'll get a fun movie with lots of explosions and tension that always relieves itself with only a few seconds left to go. It's not great by any means, but it's one of those movies you consider a guilty pleasure.

There's an air of nostalgia around this movie (I personally like the Aerosmith song), but it doesn't mask the fact that the movie itself isn't good. In an odd coincidence, Deep Impact, a far superior movie with an almost identical plot, was released the same year. Unlike that movie, Armageddon is painfully over-acted, features some lame special effects, and overall just feels like it cares more about its set pieces and explosions than its characters.

This movie's a little too American for me. An asteroid is going to destroy the earth, and it's up to AMERICA and AMERICA ALONE to save the day. I mean, other countries have space programs. Russia's is pretty good. And I'm sure other countries would be coming together to contribute. Also, what's up with the random shot of Paris getting hit by a piece of meteor? I wonder if the location was just chosen at random...
