(Review originally written at 25 November 2002)

Armageddon is one of the most entertaining movies I've ever seen. If you are looking for a movie with character development, a good story line, good acting, realism and emotions you probably shouldn't watch this movie.

The story is very simple: "An asteroid the size of Texas is on collision course with Earth. In order to prevent this disaster from happening NASA sends in the best oil-driller on Earth Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) and his team to drill an hole in the asteroid so they can blow him up from the inside." It's obvious the movie isn't meant to be a serious's clear the makers wanted purely to entertain the viewer and in that they didn't failed.

Armageddon is a non-stop action movie with great special effects that doesn't get boring for a single second mainly because the pace of the movie is very high. Every single character is entertaining in it's own way and pure fun to watch, especially the Steve Buscemi character Rockhound is more then great.

I highly recommend this movie to everyone that want to watch a great non-serious entertaining movie. Just sit back, relax and watch the movie.
