“You know we’re sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn’t it?” – Rockhound
Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (Theater, DVD, 5 Aug 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A group of deep core drillers are recruited by NASA to stop an asteroid from destroying Earth.
My Take on it – In the summer of 1998, Hollywood made 3 big budget disaster movies. Godzilla (1998) was really a disaster; Deep Impact (1998) was a dramatic turn on asteroid destroying the Earth and this movie was the action version of that same theme.
Barring the fact that you might keep asking yourself why would NASA choose to send drillers up into space instead of training astronauts to do the work, this movie is lots of fun.
Great cast; Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Billy Bob Thornton, Steve Buscemi, Will Patton, Owen Wilson and Michael Clarke Duncan.
The science is apparently completely off, but when you wanna watch things blow up, who really cares.
Director Michael Bay did a great job making this movie and if you’re looking for a brainless, but extremely entertaining disaster movie, you should check this out.
Theme song sung by Steven Tyler “I don’t wanna miss a thing” is great.
Bottom Line – Well done disaster movie, fun movie, great cast. Recommended.
Rating – Globe Worthy
