Product Description

Blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer ups the disaster movie ante by envisaging the destruction of the entire earth by an asteroid the size of Texas. NASA's attempt to avert global catastrophe involves sending a motley crew of oil drillers, led by Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis), into space, where they will drop a nuclear bomb into the asteroid's core. Amongst Stamper's team is A.J. (Ben Affleck), the headstrong suitor of his daughter (Liv Tyler), who waits on earth alongside NASA chief Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton) for news of the mission's success.

From Amazon.co.uk

It was in the summer of 1998 that two big blockbusters about meteors heading to earth went head to head at the box office. Deep Impact was generally regarded as the critic’s favourite. But for audience appreciation and box office gold, it was Michael Bay’s Armageddon that brought home the bacon. And lots of it.

It’s not hard to see why either. Armageddon throws in as many genre clichés as possible, and gets away with the vast majority of them. Thus, a great big disaster is threatening the earth, and an unsuitable mixed bag of recruits--led here by Bruce Willis’ Harry Tasker--is called up to save the day. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong, explosions abound, the ensemble cast are dragged to hell and back, and mindless entertainment ensues.

What’s more, it’s mindless entertainment that looks quite brilliant in high definition. Matched by a roaring surround sound track, the picture quality of Armageddon is terrific here, with every inch of potential destruction eeked out in some style by the 1080p video transfer. The disc is, sadly, very light on extras, but its home cinema credentials are without question. Plus, whisper it: the film was, is and always will be tremendously over-the-top fun… --Jon Foster

NASA discovers a huge meteor simmilar to the one that wiped out the dinosaurs is heading to Earth. Coming up with a plan they recruit a team of oilrig workers to land on the meteor and blow it up before it reaches Earth and destroys all life on the planet. One of director Michael Bay's early films, this is a cheesy, ridiculous film that you can't take seriously for a second yet also a lot of fun with Bruce Willis in good form and a good supporting cast including Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Steve Buscemi, Billy Bob Thornton, Michael Clarke Duncan, Owen Wilson and Will Patton all playing it completely tongue in cheek. Spectacular action and effects and looks stunning on bluray too. One of Michael Bay's best films.

OK, I'm holding back a star. This is tosh. But it's great tosh.

There are so many great bits of fun in this slam bang actioner that it's hard to know what to talk about.

So, in no particular order, the acting from a universally hugely enjoyable cast (if no oscars here):

Billy Bob Thornton-brilliantly quiet and understated.

Bruce Willis- huge fun

Ben Affleck, another enjoyable turn.

Steve Buschemi- humiliating the head-shrinkers and other great scenes

The much-missed Michael Clarke Duncan-as he cuts into the singing of "Leaving on a jet plane" with a voice deep enough to shake out your fillings.

Oh, you could keep on, but for this type of film, the perfromances are perfect.

The medical screening- high order slapstick, and MCD's table dance !

Effects- generally good enough. One bad call, I think we see meteorites from the comet coming in at all angles- well, probably they'd all come from the same place. Aside from that, it wasn't supposed to be realistic, but it's good enough.

The story- well, you know it, but it's well done.

A big film, big entertainment, but fun. Great but not GREAT.

I, as i'm sure apply's to many of you, just love these apocalyptic type movies with bucket loads of special-effects.
The story tells of a giant 'Asteroid' hurtling toward earth with little over a couple of weeks before impact, a 'team' are gathered together, put through a 'crash' course training regime to enable them to travel into space ,along with an experienced crew, land on the Asteroid shifting through space at 22,000 m.p.h., drill a '800 ft deep hole then plant the 'Nuclear Bomb' to separate the Asteroid, then...try to escape before detonation........not a huge task ?
'Bruce Willis' leads the cast list as 'Harry Stamper' - 'Liv Tyler' plays his daughter 'Grace' 'Ben Affleck' plays 'Grace's' suitor and
fellow 'driller' and mission companion to 'Harry'
This is an exciting and tense roller-coaster ride, maybe a bit 'gun-ho' as many of this type of films are, but putting that aside...it's great fun......'great 'Blu-ray' material.
Both picture and Sound quality - very good.

When I give a talk on the subject I always hold up this film as possibly the worst science fiction movie ever made on cosmic impacts. If any scientific fact was right at any stage it was purely an accident. The result is a film that is so bad that it becomes downright entertaining: suspend reality and just sit back and enjoy seeing how it would not be done if you happen to have a musclebound hero that you don't need, when the Earth is in peril. Intended or not, there are some great comic moments. The film was released in direct competition to Deep Impact, which is a far more serious attempt to portray the issues to the public, although both feature a hero and a very big bomb who just happens to die saving the planet!

Armageddon is one of my favourite movies of all time. Why? To put it simply, it has everything. It has drama, emotion, humour, romance, sci-fi, action and even a big name actor who plays a starring role. From the director who has since gone on to produce both Transformers, both Bad Boys movies and Pearl Harbour, Michael Bay got it right with this one. The budget was big; it had to be. Add explosions and great effects to that list of what this film manages to cram in. It's one of those films you just have to see. It's been out for a good few years now, but even with some of the movies that are about today, I still regard it as one of the best.
Bruce Willis is fantastic in this film. If you don't like Bruce Willis films, maybe this isn't for you.. but at the same time I'd still take a peek at it. It's not a Die Hard sort of movie, where Willis shoots everyone and walks out the only slightly bruised hero. I won't spoil the ending (in case you haven't seen it) but it is played superbly and is one of the all time great tearjerkers.
So what if the story is a bit over the top, or perhaps even unbelievable at times? The ending is perhaps predictable, with a frantic finish to save the world.. but then wasn't that always on the cards? Sure you can criticise this aspect, but if there wasn't a cinematic finale the whole film would be a bit of an anti-climax. Bay, Bruce and literally everyone in this film got it spot on. If Armageddon was the last film I ever saw, before Armageddon actually happened, I wouldn't have many complaints.
