- An awesome kick-ass cast, a kick-ass plot, kick-ass action scenes, kick-ass special effects ... a just all around kick-ass film.
- This cememnted Michael Bay as probably the most saught after Action film director of his generation. A Jerry Bruckheimer production with Bay directing would become a guaranteed blockbuster.
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®-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.
I ain't gonna kill him. I'm just gonna take a foot off of him. A man can work with one foot.
Guess what guys, it's time to embrace the horror! Look, we've got front row tickets to the end of the earth!
Houston, you have a problem. You see, I promised my little girl that I'd be comin' home. Now I don't know what you people are doing down there, but we've got a hole to dig up here!
