From the blockbuster-making team who produced and directed PEARL HARBOR and THE ROCK (Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay) comes the biggest movie of 1998 -- ARMAGEDDON! Starring the explosive talents of Bruce Willis (DIE HARD), Academy Award(R)-winners Ben Affleck (GOOD WILL HUNTING) and Billy Bob Thornton (SLING BLADE), Liv Tyler (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy), Steve Buscemi (CON AIR), and Will Patton (GONE IN 60 SECONDS), ARMAGEDDON is a meteor storm of action-adventure moviemaking that has you on the edge of your seat forgetting to breathe! When NASA's executive director, Dan Truman (Thornton), realizes the Earth has 18 days before it's obliterated by a meteor the size of Texas, he has only one option -- land a ragtag team of roughneck oil drillers on the asteroid and drop a nuclear warhead into its core. Spectacular special effects, laugh-out-loud humor, great characters, riveting storytelling, and heartfelt emotion make ARMAGEDDON an exhilarating thrill ride you'll want to experience like there's no tomorrow.

Yes the science is pretty bad, but it's not a documentary, it's fiction and it's fun. It's an entertaining movie with comedy, romance and thrills and even a bit of thriller in there I guess.
It's one of those movies that I just had to have in my collection and I got the Blu-ray version and am very happy with it, it's crystal clear with excellent audio.
The actors work, even with Bruce Willis trying to do a southern style accent, at least I think that's what he was going for, but it works.
Michael Clark Duncan is a favorite actor of mine and it's sad he died so young and he's great in this movie, a bit of comic relief with him, he always plays great parts I think.
I've never cared for Ben Affleck personally and Liv Tyler isn't the best actor but provides some eye candy anyway. Then again this isn't the type of movie where you would expect the acting to be Oscar worthy anyway o they play they parts and it works out in the end.
Great action/comedy/romance/sci-fi/thriller style movie overall.
If you're looking for stuff based in science then look elsewhere and just enjoy the show as it was meant to be enjoyed. If you're looking for some meaningful story line then go somewhere else, if you're looking for some fun to just get away from real life then this is it. It's an action movie at its heart, it's science fiction and it's not meant to be taken seriously.
I don't know, I'm just tired a reading reviews form people getting down on this movie as unbelievable story and plot holes and this and that, it's fiction, it's meant to be entertainment, it's not meant to teach you about astrophysics and space travel etc, it's a fun movie. I don't see people ripping apart Star Wars as an unbelievable story or plot, and yes I love Star Wars too.
Whatever, if you're looking for a fun movie to just relax and enjoy watching then this is it.
