Armageddon

"OK"

Armageddon Review


Relatively silly and far too long disaster movie, with a gang of unruly oil drillers sent to dig an 800-foot hole on an asteroid, drop a nuke down the hole, and get the heck home, before earth is destroyed. About like it sounds -- also, somebody please boot Liv Tyler off the planet before her acting hurts somebody.

Asteroid or Hollywood sound stage? The effect is incredible, isn't it!?
