You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone, 29 June 2012
Author: valis1949 from United States

Armageddon (dir. Gordon Chan) . In this picture director Gordon Chan drops his successful foray into the 'Cop and Martial Arts Genres', and tackles a theme steeped in woozy metaphysics and SciFi which was very popular in Hollywood in the late 90's. However, exceptionally cheesy CGI and a brain- dead story line make this a pretty weak effort, but it's not without a few pluses. Anthony Wong and Andy Lau are Asian Superstars, and they have the best roles in this film, and several of the actors that were in BEAST COPS show up in this film. Gordon Chan is trying to show Hollywood that diverse and varied films from Hong Kong can hold there own in the worldwide market place. Too bad that Armageddon was not more of a successful venture.
