When an asteroid threatens to collide with Earth, NASA honcho Dan Truman determines the only way to stop it is to drill into its surface and detonate a nuclear bomb. This leads him to renowned driller Harry Stamper, who agrees to helm the dangerous space mission provided he can bring along his own hotshot crew. Among them is the cocksure A.J. who Harry thinks isn't good enough for his daughter, until the mission proves otherwise.
Tone, Script & Story: I like the movies which teach us something. The movies which give us something to think about. In short increasing our knowledge base, putting something in our think tank. Armageddon is sci-fi. It portrays a phenomenon that can occur in future. A phenomenon that might have been the reason humans exist and dinosaurs don't, on planet earth.The story puts light how a group of miners dig through an asteriod and avoid it from crashing into earth. It does not end here, in the process of portraying a film that saves us from another mass extinction it puts light on human values like love, emotions, sacrifice, heroism and the list goes on. Thus it has got all factors required for a good movie.Final Verdict: It has got something to impart knowledge into your think tank. It is worth adding to your collection.
Well, this is one of the movies i ever love more than other movie, the only move i can see all day.
Hadn't seen this in years and thoroughly enjoyed myself in a long overdue re-watch. Special effects still stand up today, fantastic cast, humorous and excellent in terms of an action popcorn flick.Sure it heads into far fetched, over-the-top territory by the end as one thing after another goes wrong while shuttling about through an asteroid field, but I was invested. Its a fun ride including a sweet romance, multiple side stories from the extended cast and that iconic theme song from Aerosmith.If I remember correctly there was a string of asteroid disaster films that all came out around the same time Deep Impact was another I enjoyed.The story here goes; NASA is desperate to stop a gigantic asteroid from wiping out humanity so they recruit an outfit of misfit oil drillers to detonate a nuclear bomb that will blow up the massive rock before it reaches earth.
