    Armageddon is as irresistible as it's indefensible.
  2. It looks like a TV ad, or 200 of them strung together, with the same kind of gaudy virtuosity, lavish technique and expensive self-mockery tinging every shot.

    The movie is ridiculous, but since the special effects are really quite impressive, that seems a small point.
  4. It might make you tense, it might make you nauseous, and its clangorous roar could well give you a migraine headache.

    The surprisingly witty script was worked on by a squadron of writers, including Robert Towne.

    It's big, it's stupid, it's pretty kick-ass.
  8. 63
    Armageddon is a testosterone and adrenaline cocktail, with almost no intelligence added for flavoring.
