Armageddon peels your eyelids back and blows your eardrums out until rational analysis is moot.

Leah Rozen
People Magazine

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay are slick Hollywood operators who know exactly what they're doing: Armageddon's heart beats strongly, but it's pumping adrenaline rather than blood.

Just when you think you've had it with this movie, there comes a farcical, rock 'n' roll sort of comedy sequence, or a hilariously goofy line.

If you're going to blow up the world -- or advertise your intentions to do so -- you might as well have some laughs along the way.

Affleck demonstrates a sexy Paul Newmanish charm and is clearly bound for stardom.

Florida Times-Union

It's such a thrill ride, in fact, that after its 2 1/2 hours of thrills, you're likely to feel more pummeled than entertained, which is just the point.

Andrew Collins

The loved-up subplot is a low point but, within such an expert thrill ride, it's not the end of the world.

Of course, the special effects are dazzling.

Armageddon -- slick, overblown and formulaic to its core -- nevertheless amounts to this season's closest screen equivalent to an apocalyptic thrill ride.

It's schlock, sure, but it's fun schlock with good performances and good special effects and a reasonably brisk script. It pushes all the right buttons in two formulas -- action-comedy and adventure.

While there's some crater-sized flaws if you want to be nit-picky, this is Bay's finest, earnestly entertaining film and an easy crowd pleaser.

Combustible Celluloid

It's noisy, glossy, and excessive, and more than a tad simplistic -- but it's also nearly irresistible.

...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.

That said, Armageddon is still good. Well, maybe good isn't the right word. It is very entertaining and even features (gulp) a female in a sort of important role.

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

Looking Closer

A Godzilla-sized blockbuster -- it's an outrageous spectacle, without many brains to speak of, but its heart in the right place.

Cinema em Cena

Tenso e com bons efeitos visuais, o filme funciona como diversão (apesar dos clichês).

It won't get bigger, slicker, glossier or more fun this summer.

I just think these guys should learn you can tell a story with more subtlety over two and a half hours than they do over three minutes.
