Today I decided to watch Armageddon, which I hadn't seen before, Armageddon is a sci-fi film which is about humans trying to stop a asteroid from colliding with earth by enlisting the help of oil riggers to drill into the asteroid and blow up a nuke in the middle of it. Armageddon stars Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Michael Clarke Duncan, Steve Buscemi and many more and is directed by Michael Bay.

There are a few positives to this film, which are: the acting is ok, the action and CGI are pretty good, the explosions and effects are cool, pacing is good, the movie resolves nicely and overall the movie is quite enjoyable. I can't expand much more than that on the positives as there aren't that many.

There is also some negatives, which are: the story isn't that great and there is a lot of scientific inaccuracies. As the film is directed by Michael Bay I was expecting explosions and I got them and some flaws can be forgiven like buildings exploding before the asteroid hits them; however other inaccuracies pulled me out of the film, which include: the drillers were fully trained to go into space in like 12 days when it normally takes many years, sound in space, they managed to get to the moon in a matter of hours when it would normally take days, the asteroid apparently has an atmosphere as there is wind, there must be oxygen in the atmosphere of the asteroid as fires can start, the asteroid must have a core for volcanic eruptions to occur which is not possible, the entire plan would never work as exploding a nuke in the center of the asteroid would make it into radioactive shards and destroy more of the world more quickly, this list could go on longer but I'll stop there.

Overall this film is still enjoyable even taking the flimsy story into consideration but because of it, I will rate this film:
