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.

This is worth picking up for any fan of the film!
A life-killing asteroid hurtles towards Earth as two drilling teams try to save the planet by landing on the massive boulder, burrowing 800 feet into it and implanting a nuclear device. Humor-laced but overlong disaster flick fails in part due to touchy-feely subplots, one of which is a boring romance between Affleck and Tyler. Stormare's pushy Russian cosmonaut is great fun, as is Buscemi's space-demented turn as super-genius and super-sexed Rockhound. Both actors portrayed the kidnapper/killers in FARGO (1996).

(6.4) Armageddon (1998) - Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck/Liv Tyler/Steve Buscemi/Billy Bob Thornton/Will Patton/Michael Clarke Duncan/Owen Wilson/Shawnee Smith/Charlton Heston (narrator)
Co-starring Liv Tyler, Keith David, William Fichthner, Jason Issacs, and Udo Kier with a opening narration by Charlton Heston, this is a rockin' Sci-fi action drama from director Michael Bay, co-written by JJ Abrams and Jonathan Hensleigh and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. It came out during the same time as the other Asteroid movie "Deep Impact" in 1998 but this is the more successful of the two movies, i remembered when i was 16 when this came out and i loved it as it became one of my all time favorite movies. The acting is superb including the music by Trevor Rabin with fantastic special effects, this is one of Bay's finest movies while "Transformers" is his greatest achivement but this is an emotional rollercoaster ride with tears, laughs, action and of course feel good material that makes this a must see ride for everyone.
This 2-Disc Criterion Edition DVD offers the film in it's unrated director's cut with never-before-seen footage in the theatrical version plus awesome extras like audio commentaries, Michael Bay's gag-reel, deleted scenes, storyboards and production drawings, analses of the special effects, production designer on the look of Armageddon, Aerosmith music video on the popular "I Don't want to miss a thing" and trailer, teaser with TV Spots.
