    Bruce Willis saves the world but can't save "Armageddon."

    This idiotic film is loud, boorish and smart enough to relish its own lunkhead bravado...

    Bay loves to place the camera in the path of meteors or pieces of spaceships or airborne cars. Did one of these projectiles conk him on his noggin? Is that why "Armageddon" is so utterly and thoroughly incompetent?

    I hate Armageddon for what it is: the unholy spawn of The Dirty Dozen and Con Air.

    Sporadically watchable, it's at its best at those infrequent moments when it doesn't take itself too seriously.

    ...the latest in a line of increasingly-stupid action pictures that amazes audiences with flashy special effects and nifty action sequences, but leaves them high and dry in both the character and story departments.

    It delivers the thrill-ride twists and turns, exciting but not surprising.

    Along with the rest of the audience, I jumped when I was meant to jump, laughed when I was meant to laugh, and swallowed a lump in my throat when I was meant to feel moved.

    Save the planet, but spare us this movie.

    Name user

    A real movie about courage in space is Apollo 13, in which fear and sacrifice have meaning. This jingoistic, overblown spectacle is about whistling in the dark.

    It sure makes an ugly mess.

    ...doesn't give a hoot about making a deep, humanistic impact on us.

    ...full of sound and fury but without a single new idea to add to the conversation.

    ...why couldn't the film have tapped into a more noble and stylish tradition? Why couldn't these men have been interesting instead of cartoons?

    The only compelling lure is the special effects, which are sometimes impressive, sometimes transparent, yet somehow always inadequate to the apocalyptic task at hand.

    The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense and the human desire to be entertained.

    There are many things to dislike about Armageddon, from its stunningly straight-faced Charlton Heston introduction to its casual contempt for the Greenpeace activists protesting the drilling of oil wells

    The movie opens with the destruction of Manhattan by meteor shower, and, midway through, Paris gets wiped out as well. Naturally, no one blinks an eye.
