Michael Bay (The Rock) directed this science fiction action thriller in the When Worlds Collide tradition. After astronomy students discover a comet-asteroid collision, an asteroid fragment "the size of the Super Dome" threatens. It's destroyed by a secret USA defense in space, but a large chunk veers off toward Singapore. With another asteroid "the size of Texas" en route, a plan is devised to send oil drillers to land on the asteroid and drop a nuclear device down a 1000-foot shaft, a scheme

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.
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.
A silly, noisy, overlong, star-driven popcorn movie about the end of the world
The color-corrected Life magazine pictorial-style imagery and excessive use of slo-mo are far more annoying than they are easy on the eyes, and the hyperactive editing is unbearable. [Blu-ray]
It's easy to be sucked in by all the glossy, nostalgic images that flash across the screen like some sort of psychological experiment, but like most of the director's other films, most is forgettable shortly thereafter.
I've seen better Bruckheimer and Bay films, but this one still manages to entertain.
...this is a critic-proof crowd-pleaser that purposely intones God, Mom, and apple pie before pushing every other jingoistic, proto-patriotic button out there.
A Godzilla-sized blockbuster -- it's an outrageous spectacle, without many brains to speak of, but its heart in the right place.
Where things fall apart are the scenes that try to put in characterisation, and, God help us, comic relief.
Armabludgeon is like a roller coast--occasionally exciting, but in the end you've been taken for a long, nauseating ride.
Tenso e com bons efeitos visuais, o filme funciona como diversão (apesar dos clichês).
- Narrator: This is the Earth, at a time when dinosaurs roamed a lush & fertile planet. But the piece of rock just six miles wide changed all that. It hit with the force of ten thousand nuclear weapons. A trillion tons of dirt & rock hurtled into the atmosphere creating a suffocating blanket of dust the Sun was powerless to penetrate for a thousand years. It happened before, it will happen again, it's just a question of when.
- Charles (Chick) Chapple: [to Rockhound] Get off the nuclear warhead.
- Karl: Sir I'm a retired Navy, I know a lot about classified. but one more thing, the person who finds her gets to name her right?
- Dan Truman: Yes, that's right.
- Karl: I want to name her Dottie after my wife, she's a vicious life sucking bitch from which there is no escape.
- Harry S. Stamper: [Harry says to his fellow drillers] I know we have to go. We can all just sit here on Earth, wait for this big rock to crash into it, kill everything and everybody we know. United States government just asked us to save the world. Anybody want to say 'no'?
- Rockhound: Just tryin' to have some fun before I die!
- A.J. Frost: Oscar? Oscar? [cries]
