A special effects masterpeice Posted by: from: West Chester, PA on This film deserved this edition solely on the fact that it had ground breaking effects. Some of the acting is heavy handed and story is a tad far fetched, but it was a summer popcorn movie and is still a fun ride.

Best movie ever for Bluray makeover Posted by: from: Grand Junction, CO on Ok, we've heard it all. Its a Micheal Bay film...Ben Affleck is terrible...another "Bruce Willis" kind of movie. But this movie is my favorite movie, and here is why. Its more than just about an astroid on a collision course with Earth. Its REAL story is about an average group of Americans who get thrown into an environment they have no purpose being in, and still find a way to work together to overcome all odds. This movie is perfectly casted, scripted, and the music just adds to the dramatic nature of the film. With the actors...its SO EASY to see them as the character they play. I don't know Ben Affleck, but I can easily see him as "AJ" in real life. A cocky big headed 'know it all'. I can keep going. For Armageddon to get the bluray makeover, will take this movie to the next step and show (in detail) how great this movie truly is. CANT WAIT!

A global killer - nothing survives! Posted by: from: Sunnyvale, CA on 4 of 5 stars for this sci-fi movie. A global killer--nothing survives, not even bacteria. An asteroid the size of Texas is en route to the Earth. With only 18 days before impact what do you do? Some early arriving asteroids (basketball size) rake NYC doing extreme damage. The only choice? Nuke it. How do you do that? Send a crew to drill a hole into the asteroid, implant the nuke, blast-it to break the asteroid into little bits. OK, who do you get to drill the hole? How about a crew of rough-necks (lead by Bruce Willis)? Things get complex when it turns out the asteroid is solid metal and it breaks drill bits. Very strong acting and characters. Willis really hits a home run with his character. Great special effects. The concept is a bit old, but, this is a fresh version. I do recommend this movie!

No viewer will be disappointed Posted by: from: Puyallup,WA. on There is truly something for everyone in this film. Comedy,drama,romance, sci-fi,action and the horror of seeing Michael Clark Duncan in leopard print briefs. Lol! Add the lovely Liv Tyler and a killer song from her dad and you have a can't miss combination for success. Break out the popcorn, kick back and enjoy

Awesome film! Posted by: from: on I've been procrastinating on getting this film of Michael Bay's only because I've been hoping that a 7.1 Audio mix would be released along with the Criterion DVD Collection bonus material would be released on the same version, but I guess not. This film is just as cool as when I saw it back in 1998! I love the film and the surround sound!

Great addition to our Bluray Collection! Posted by: from: Brooklyn, NY on This movie is a must in your collection. Now that its in bluray the film looks great. Its probably one of the best films that Bruce Willis has. Overall great action and tension of the movie.
