They should have given the budget to cancer research
This is the movie that made me realize how absolutely packed full of cliches and lame one-liners a movie has to be to appall me. I am a very easy guy when it comes to movies. I take them for what they are, and rarely think they are lame.
I rarely see movies I don't like - specially not Hollywood blockbusters like Armageddon. Armageddon even features Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi and Ben Affleck - three actors that I really like.
I don't want to spoil the movies intricate plot (note the heavy use of sarcasm) by disclosing what happens in those crucial scenes where the bomb is counting down towards zero, or the guy has fallen down the deep trench. But I don't have to - it's EXACTLY what you will expect to happen. The only element of surprise would be that you keep thinking "no way... it can't be THAT lame", and then it proves you wrong.
This movie is not only cliché ridden - there are also several things in the movie that suddenly happen for no apparent reason. Like Steve Buscemis character going space-crazy, as if only to tell you that "in space it doesn't matter if you are intelligent enough to solve a rubiks cube".
On the positive side, the special effects are of course awesome, and the cinematography is good (regular good, not out of the ordinary). The budget was clearly a big one for this movie, but considering the awful result, I think the money should have been given to charity or cancer research
