We Don'e Care What Anybody Says, 'Armageddon' Is A Fantastic Movie
Our Score - 8.5/10 (A-) Rotten Tomatoes - 38% IMDB - 6.7/10 Listener Request From: Greg Grosse We can't deny it, Armageddon (1998) is a loud, stupid, silly, AWFUL movie. That being said, the actors play their parts well, a lot of the humor works, the non-stop action makes the time fly by, and you're lying if you claim you didn't cry at least once during it. The point is, it's amazing.
