Synopsis


Armageddon
Michael Bay directed this 150-million-dollar science fiction action thriller about an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, sending fireballs down on Manhattan, prompting a plan to split the asteroid into two sections before it arrives and causes human extinction. NASA executive director Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton) brings in the world's number-one oil driller, Harry S. Stamper (Bruce Willis), who assembles his team that is trained for the task. The group includes top crew hand A.J. Frost (Ben Affleck), who is involved in a relationship with Stamper's daughter Grace (Liv Tyler). With only days remaining, two shuttles head into space to drill 800 feet into the asteroid and nuke the rock. Back on Earth, as mini-asteroids pelt Paris and Shanghai, humanity hopes and prays for a successful mission. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Best movie ever for Bluray makeover

    Posted
    Anonymous

    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!

    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!

    I think that "Armageddon" was one of the greatest action/disaster films of all-time and was also one of my favorite films of all-time. I also think that "Armageddon" had a lot of entertaining and enjoyable action, mystery, suspense and drama including a really great and amazing cast and personal storylines as well.

    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!

    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

    With all the "earth is gonna be destroyed" movies available, this has got to be the BEST of them all! Stellar cast, great comedy and dry humor mixed with some near believable ruff and tumble! Excellent soundtrack, This is a movie to add to everybody's permanent vid library!

    'Armageddon'... What to say. It is really a great movie. It's got emotional depth. It's got tension. And it's "theme" song is by Aerosmith. What is there not to like? The cast for the movie was spot on. Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler were absolutely great. You really can't ask much more of a movie.

    I bought this as a gift for my mother for Christmas (her first blu-ray title, along with a blu-ray player) as it is one of her favorite movies, and it was a hit. I watched it and the picture and sound (moreso) are pretty good compared to the old dvd. A great update if you're considering upgrading from the DVD
