Description
From the mega-hitmakers who produced and directed The Rock and Pearl Harbor comes Armageddon. And now, these mind-blowing action-adventure explodes on Blu-ray for the first time ever! Bruce Willis (Surrogates, Sin City) and Academy Award winners Ben Affleck (1997, Best Original Screenplay, Good Will Hunting) and Billy Bob Thornton (1996, Best Adapted Screenplay, Sling Blade) head an all-star cast that incudes Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Steve Buscemi (Con Air) and Will Patton (Gone in 60 Seconds). When NASA's director (Thornton) realizes the Earth has 18 days before it's destroyed by a metor the size of Texas, he has only one option; land a ragtag team of roughneck oil drillers on the asteroid and drop a nuke into its core. With spectacular special effects, laugh out loud humor, a riveting story and a rockin' soundtrack featuring Aerosmith and Bon Jovi, this adrenaline-pumping thrill ride now boasts the staggeringly intense picture and incomparable theater quality sound of Blu-ray high definitition. Bonus Features include: Aerosmith's music video I Don't Want To Miss A Thing, theatrical trailer, teaser trailer.

Editorial Review
The latest testosterone-saturated blow-'em-up from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay (The Rock, Bad Boys) continues Hollywood's millennium-fueled fascination with the destruction of our planet. There's no arguing that the successful duo understands what mainstream American audiences want in their blockbuster movies--loads of loud, eye-popping special effects, rapid- fire pacing, and patriotic flag waving. Bay's protagonists--the eight crude, lewd, oversexed (but lovable, of course) oil drillers summoned to save the world from a Texas-sized meteor hurling toward the earth--are not flawless heroes, but common men with whom all can relate. In this huge Western-in-space soap opera, they're American cowboys turned astronauts. Sci-fi buffs will appreciate Bay's fetishizing of technology, even though it's apparent he doesn't understand it as anything more than flashing lights and shiny gadgets. Smartly, the duo also tries to lure the art-house crowd, raiding the local indie acting stable and populating the film with guys like Steve Buscemi, Billy Bob Thornton, Owen Wilson, and Michael Duncan, all adding needed touches of humor and charisma. When Bay applies his sledgehammer aesthetics to the action portions of the film, it's mindless fun; it's only when Armageddon tackles humanity that it becomes truly offensive. Not since Mississippi Burning have racial and cultural stereotypes been substituted for characters so blatantly--African Americans, Japanese, Chinese, Scottish, Samoans, Muslims, French ... if it's not white and American, Bay simplifies it. Or, make that white male America; the film features only three notable females--four if you count the meteor, who's constantly referred to as a "bitch that needs drillin'," but she's a hell of a lot more developed and unpredictable than the other women characters combined. Sure, Bay's film creates some tension and contains some visceral moments, but if he can't create any redeemable characters outside of those in space, what's the point of saving the planet --Dave McCoy

Here is what people are saying about the Armageddon [Blu-ray]
5 Star Rating  ""One Of The Best Disaster Films"" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada
Budgeted at $140,000,000, "Amageddon" was one of the most costliest disaster epics Hollywood has ever made. Released only a few months after another disaster film "Deep Impact", "Armageddon" deals with the fact that a giant asteroid is on a collision course to earth and it is up to a group of deep core drillers working for NASA to stop the dreaded outcome. Extremely well-produced with top-notch special effects and a cast of some of Hollywood's best actors including Bruce Willis, "Armageddon" would go on to be the top grossing film of 1998 and gross nearly $600,000,000. It was also one of Michael Bay's first films in which he directed, and the success of "Armageddon" would allow Bay to direct many remakes of former Hollywood horror films like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "The Fog".

The movie is well known for the song "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" and its video is included in the bonuses of the DVD along with the trailer.

I love this movie and I wanted it on bluray. But its not as sharp as my other blurays. It still much clearer than your regular dvd.
 
5 Star Rating  "Great action movie" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Los Angeles
Armageddon is not Hamlet. And all the better, it is a fun, wild, free of logic, and well done. Liv Tyler is to die for, Bruce is classic. The Blu-Ray is excellent - though I did not even look for any extras, if there was not any that would be sad - like a making of. But I love it and the Blu-Ray quality.
