ARMAGEDDON (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Armageddon—interesting concept, a little improbable—employs veteran actors, Bruce Willis (Harry Stamper), Billy Bob Thornton (Dan Truman), and Ben Affleck (A.J. Frost) to venture into space and save earth. Bruce Willis, a one-man action/adventure actor, seems a little uncomfortable playing the ‘team, let’s get it done together’ role. The film suffers from poor special effects.

Storyline

NASA hires Harry Stamper and team to land on a meteorite, drill a hole, plant explosives, and blow it into two halves so that it will pass earth and leave earth intact, unharmed.

Additional Thanks

Good Work for Director Michael Bay. Thank you to Executive Producers Jonathan Hensleigh, Chad Oman, and Jim Van Wyck for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Grace Stamper (Liv Tyler), Chick (Will Patton), Rockhound (Steve Buscemi), and Oscar Choi (Owen Wilson),

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a good action flick with a little family drama for emotional appeal.
