#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – It is just another day at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), a few astronauts were repairing a satellite until, out of nowhere, a series of asteroids came crashing into the shuttle, destroying it. These asteroids also decimated New York soon thereafter. Then, NASA discovered that there is an asteroid roughly the size of Texas heading towards the Earth, and when it does hit the Earth, the planet itself and all of its inhabitants will be obliterated, worse, the asteroid will hit the Earth in 18 days. Unfortunately, NASA’s plans to destroy the asteroid are irrelevant. That is when the U.S. military decides to use a nuclear warhead to blow the asteroid to pieces. Then, scientists decide to blow the asteroid with the warhead inside the asteroid itself. The only man to do it, is an oil driller named Harry Stamper and his group of misfit drillers and geologists. As he and his drill team prepare for space excavation, the asteroid is still heading towards the Earth. When the crew are launched into outer space, they are determined to destroy this asteroid.
Plot: When an asteroid threatens to collide with Earth, NASA honcho Dan Truman determines the only way to stop it is to drill into its surface and detonate a nuclear bomb. This leads him to renowned driller Harry Stamper, who agrees to helm the dangerous space mission provided he can bring along his own hotshot crew. Among them is the cocksure A.J. who Harry thinks isn’t good enough for his daughter, until the mission proves otherwise.

It’s Bayhem time again.
An asteroid the size of Texas is heading towards Earth, the consequence if it hits is a global killer, the end of mankind. In spite of the billions invested in the space programme, NASA has no answers other than the notion that the asteroid will need to be nuked, from the inside. Enter Harry Stamper and his rough and rugged crew of deep core drillers. Can NASA get these men up on the asteroid and do the job? The fate of mankind rests with a bunch of odd balls!
Perhaps because I have a particular kink for the disaster picture, I find it hard to understand the hate for Armageddon. I am after all a man who gleefully defends The Towering Inferno et al with staunch defiance. Armageddon does exactly what was expected from it, ridiculous high octane entertainment with laughs, peril and obligatory chest thumping bravado. All of course cloaked in director Michael Bay’s gleeful insistence on blowing things up with devilish panache. Sure there are some twee moments, sure there is some less than great acting on show, but you know what? It’s a disaster picture for Michael Bay’s crying out loud sake! Check the brain at the door, turn the sound and colour systems up, enjoy the effects on offer and singalong to Aeromith’s smashing, “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”.
Armageddon, does exactly what it says on the cover, don’t take it so serious folks. 8/10
Good watch, might watch again, and can recommend.
This has a great premise and stacked cast which is incredibly well balanced not only between the “diggers”, but the control crew and the astronauts as well. While they take that opportunity use the characters to really build the world, the story really just boils down to “meteor going to kill earth” and “guy and girl connection, but girl’s daddy doesn’t like”. Surprisingly the latter takes up a significant amount of time in the movie, but everyone gets their moment in the spotlight. Steve Buscemi definitely has some of the most memorable moments in the movie.
This is the first movie I can think of that has this sort of detail of space travel, let alone tried to simulate the hellish landscape of an asteroid. It really feels like they put the production value into not only to making the movie look good but getting the details right.
This is a “I laughed, I cried” sort of movie, and while I don’t think it does any one thing especially well, it definitely delivers a solidly good experience.
Fun, Action-packed movie.
This movie seems to be a movie that many people love to hate. I don’t see why it has such a bad reputation. It is meant to be an Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie, and it definitely lives up to this. It is what it is. Many people have tried to compare it to Apollo 13, but that’s like comparing apples and oranges. They are entirely different fruit. Apollo 13 is based on a true historical event (Docu-drama), while Armageddon is an Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie. It has plenty of action and adventure, a lot of humor, and a bit of romance. Is the story realistic? Not hardly, but name ANY Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi movie that is. That’s why they call it Science FICTION… For those who criticize this movie, nothing will change their minds. However, if you HAVEN’T seen Armageddon, take a chance, watch with an open mind and try not to let all these negative reviews spoil your enjoyment of a really fun movie. Remember, a movie is meant to ENTERTAIN, and Armageddon does just that, if you let it!
The original Blockbuster movie
I don’t understand the hate for this film, some people seem unable to appreciate the movie for what it is. Yes it’s epic, a bit cliche over the top but it was done brilliantly and was one of the first in doing so.
I have yet to see a film with a better cast, amazing actors each in their own right.
The CGI is fantastic for 1998 and still holds up well today. Some of the cinematography is superb, the script well thought out and Michael Bay should be praised for this.
The sound track both by Hanz Simmer and Aerosmith are classics.
This film is the definition of epic and heaps fun to watch!
