~I settled down one night to watch this film on video.I knew basically what the plot was about, and i'd heard that it was a very long film, now that can sometimes be the downfall of a movie that's not that good, but after two hours i still didn't want this film to end. ~The plot is this, the...

ConsExtras, where are they?!

This film appeared back when everyone was talking about asteroids heading for earth. This was a good thing considering the plot concerned an asteroid heading for earth and only a bunch of rough rag-tag oil drillers sent out to save the world. At it's most basic, Armageddon is another action...

ProFantastic action movie.

ConsA bit American bias.

This is one very brilliant action movie. A rogue asteroid is on its way to hit the Earth and destroy all life on the planet (even the bacteria!) The best brains in the entire world are put to work on how to save the planet. Well, this is very much an American film so all the best brains are of...

Consnone at all

I knew there were two asteroid movies last year, and after the disappointment of Deep Impact, the more realistic movie, I was hoping this was going to be a lot better. There was going to be a third movie, which was written by James Cameron. Entitled "Angels Falling" or something similar, it never...

Armageddon is one of my favourite recent films. I have seen it both in the cinema and on DVD (the special US release) and I am always amazed by its quality.

Armageddon is a really great film, along with deep impact another asteroid film released around the same time, this film focuses on what could be the end of the world, unless someone stops it. Step up Bruce Willis and his hard core team of ocean oil drillers, apparently they are the only ones on...

Following a report on Ciao by Dr. Pepper, I went in search of this film. I was looking for a decent film and others I knew had said it was a good movie, so up I stepped to see for myself. I wasn't dissappointed. The story revolves around the rather overplayed plot of a meteor heading towards...

ProIt's two hours of pure cinematic pleasure

ConsSky Digital show it too much!

Bloody hell! Crikey! Sweet mother of pearls! This movie is great! Acting is superb, special effects rock (no pun intended) and the script is sublime for a film of this genre. Plot is simple, asteroid size of Texas hurtling towards us, oil-riggers led by Harry (Bruce Willis..actually acting well)...

**This opinion gives away quite a lot of the plot** Armageddon is much like Deep Impact (which I have also written an opinion on, but I’ll stop selling myself now!!). The basis of the story is that there is an asteroid the size of Texas on a collision course with earth. If it hits earth...

Armageddon is an old film- first released in 1998, starring many blockbuster actors including of course Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and Billy Bob Thornton.

I’ve come to realise that writing a film review on Ciao is a lot harder than…say writing a review about a computer. On one hand if you give too much away about the plot then people who haven’t seen the film hate you. Alternatively don’t say enough and even more people hate you and complain that...

Product Information : Armageddon (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A low earth orbit space station is in the middle of a repair mission with the space shuttle when an unforeseen meteor shower obliterates them both. This sudden event sends fireballs hurtling to Earth and scientists scurrying to telescopes. An amateur astronomer is the first to spy a gigantic fireball headed towards the planet and notifies NASA. Turner (Thornton) informs the president of the asteroid and describes it as being the size of Texas, a planet-killer. With eighteen days to impact, NASA frantically tries to find a solution but ends up turning to an outside contractor. Harry Stamper (Willis) and his team of ragamuffin roughneck oilmen are called upon to save the planet as only they can.
