An awesome movie
First and foremost, it was great to see Bruce Willis doing something that didn't involve him rolling on the floor, machine guns blazing.

I have to agree and disagree with some of the comments posted about this movie. While it wasn't original and overly creative in its theme, I have to disagree that the movie doesn't make you think. My advice to those who missed the message? Rent the movie again, and this time, pay attention. Really folks, what would you do if you had 36 hours to live. Where would you be? Most of us don't know the answer to this, and those of us who do, would like to forget.

All that aside, I think the special effects in this movie were spectular, and even the side-line characters were interesting. And, wasn't it nice to have ONE government official - thank you Billy Bob Thorton - that had a touch of humanity in him?

All in all this movie kept going...would I let the man I love get on that spaceship? That's another story.

Did You Know?


N.A.S.A. shows this film during their management training program. New managers are given the task of trying to spot as many errors as possible. At least one hundred sixty-eight have been found.


Narrator: This is the Earth, at a time when the dinosaurs roamed a lush and fertile planet.
Narrator: A piece of rock just 6 miles wide changed all that.
Narrator: It hit with the force of 10,000 nuclear weapons. A trillion tons of dirt and rock hurtled into the atmosphere, ...


As the two shuttles are approaching the Russian space station, the pilot of one of the shuttles says he is firing the retro-rockets. This would be done so that the shuttles didn't slam into the station. But as the camera cuts to a view of the shuttles nearing the station, both shuttles are still firing their main rear rockets.

Crazy Credits

All initial UK '12' Certificate videos came with the full promo video for Aerosmith's: "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" before the film started. The video only came with the limited widescreen or even more limited 'double feature' boxed video with 'The Making of Armaggedon' as a bonus video. Also some outtakes (1 per character) were featured at the very end of the credits with text underneath saying 'In loving memory of who gave his life saving our planet.' (The outtakes only came with the initial copies on video.)

Alternate Versions

The TV version concludes on the runway after the return of the shuttle crew. The wedding scene and related "home movie" footage is not shown.
