Armageddon Review
by Pierce Dalton
After a great opening, in which an American spaceship, plus the city of New York, are completely destroyed by a comet shower, NASA detects the said asteroid and go into a frenzy. more

>From the creative team that invented the "why donít we all just whip it out and see whose got the biggest dick" film, Armageddon surpasses its predecessors in budget, effects and pure testosterone output. Iím talking about Jerry Bruckheimer (ConAir,...more

Armageddon Review
by Matthew Dalton
The first 10 minutes of this film are pretty entertaining, and, downright spectacular. A comet shower (not detected by NASA) rains on an American spaceship and blows the thing up good before it proceeds to New York City. more

Armageddon Review
by Bob Bloom
Unlike this summer's other end-of-the-Earth disaster flick, Deep Impact, which at least made an attempt at a modicum of intelligence and scientific accuracy, Armageddon is pure amusement park fun. more

Armageddon Review

The last time we saw Bruce Willis in front of the camera riding the binge trend of apocalypse movies was in 1995, with the bizarre, twisted Terry Gilliam saga of a virus and a time travel paradox "12 Monkeys". Having just finished it as I type these...more

TEMPE, AZ -- I wanted to see American History X today, with the idea of writing a review for The Vinegar, however, Brandi and I have been hiking in Phoenix's South Mountain Park too long, and now we've run out of time in order to catch the beginning of...more

A bunch of good ol' boys are sent into space to bicker and eventually destroy yet another asteroid on an Earth-bound course. There is much shouting and explosions. more

ARMAGEDDON Directed by Michael Bay A case could probably be made that Jerry Bruckheimer and the late Don Simpson are the two men most responsible for the sorry state of the American movie blockbuster. Why was "Godzilla" so godawful? Why did "Speed 2"...more

Armageddon Review
by Kleszczewski, Nicholas
Hello kids. Today the movie studios want to take over my critical review, and somehow persuade you that _Armageddon_, the summer's biggest blockbuster, is a film for everybody. And remember, if a film is for _everybody_, and if it makes the most money...more

Armageddon Review
by Rob Ehrlich
After watching Armageddon I realized that I had watched an extremely long commercial. A 150 minute commercial to be exact. The director, Michael Bay, had me interested in the beginning of the film, and I began to think that it would be like The Rock in...more

Following in the footsteps of Deep Impact, Armageddon is a high octane action story about a huge asteroid on a collision course with earth. A plan is devised to drill nuclear bombs into it's core and then remotely detonate them to destroy it. A team of...more

Armageddon Review
by David Wilcock
The second meteorite movie after the dire Deep Impact (1998) is brought by the team who produced the dire action movie The Rock (1996). Luckily, however, Armageddon is better than both of these films, and provides entertaining summer fare. The 'plot' is...more

Armageddon Review
by Andrew Hicks
If nothing else, ARMAGEDDON will probably go down in history as the loudest movie ever. It applies the mechanics of brain-dead, quick-cutting action movies like CON-AIR and THE ROCK to the disaster movie formula, with mixed results. As far as the summer...more
Armageddon Review

When ARMAGEDDON opened on July 1, my son and I visited the only cinema in our small city. We entered the largest auditorium, which was the original theater, circa 1930's. (Three much smaller screens were added recently to please the college crowd.) more
Armageddon Review
by Michael Redman
Guilty pleasures are secret little joys of life. Things that we're not supposed to enjoy because they're not hip and they're certainly not good for us. Velveeta cheese, Reeses Cups, silly sit-coms. We sneak these in every once and a while but don't...more
Armageddon Review
by Mario Muredda
Ahh, the elusive summer movie. Expectations run dry, and mindless moviegoers scurry to theatres in delight. If you are one of those mindless moviegoers, odds are, you have seen Armageddon. Certainly a loud film, a truly neccessary quality in order to be...more
Armageddon Review
by David Thiel
"Armageddon" compares very unfavorably to this year's *other* asteroid opus, "Deep Impact." That film excelled by using its spectacular special effects sequences sparingly, and allowing room for its characters to ponder the reality of the End of the...more
Armageddon Review
by John W. Collins
There is a widely held theory that a giant meteor slammed into the Earth, 65 million years ago and knocked the dinosaurs off their high perch as the dominant species of this planet. There is also a widely held belief that one day another meteor will...more
Armageddon Review
by Serdar Yegulalp
ARMAGEDDON is a one-hundred-and-fifty-minute migraine headache. It classifies less as a form of entertainment than as a new kind of corporal punishment. It's so meat-headedly macho it should come with its own brand of deodorant. more
Armageddon Review
by Yen, Homer
The second movie featuring a big rock from space has hit movie theatres. But despite the fact that this asteroid is the size of Texas and it's imminent collision with Mother Earth would be so devastating that not even bacteria would live, the movie's...more
Armageddon Review

Capsule: A group of working-class heroes is humanity's only hope to destroy a meteor headed straight for Earth. This is a very heavily cliched film. It uses comic-book-style editing, too many...more

When you look up "guilty pleasure" in the cinema encyclopedia, there is a still from ARMAGEDDON. You probably won't recognize the still, however; Michael Bay and his editors cut images together so quickly that this film may have more individual shots...more
Armageddon Review
by Sridhar Prasad
WHEW! Summer blockbusters don't get much bigger than ARMAGEDDON, a 2 hour 30 minute ride through outer space. You think Godzilla was big? Or Deep Impact? Forget a creature as big as the Empire State Building, forget a comet the size of NYC,...more

What Armageddon has going for it is The Tears. "The Tears" is the chapter in Tom Wolfe's novel The Right Stuff that describes John Glenn's heroic Mercury orbital flight in 1961 and the stunning, overwhelming reception that he received on his return....more
