    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    Armageddon is a testosterone and adrenaline cocktail, with almost no intelligence added for flavoring. show more

    Wonderful, amazing movie, although it could have done the job of depicting the dire situation without all the testosterone...but thats okay. a bit of a tear jerker toward the end and awesome special effects..very realistic....the movie was phenomenal...
