Yes, Armageddon was not a good movie in my opinion. 3/5 is too much for me. It was brain dead entertainment worthy of being seen with mates just to see the cool effects and explosions. Not much else.Empire Magazine's review of Armageddon from the year 2000:
It gave it a 3/5.

Who are Empire magazine & why do they matter? They were the best selling movie magazine in the UK at the time & had a popularity because they were generally honest and not obviously shill-like. A lot of their reviews read like how most popular Youtubers approach film reviews today. You get a sense of the meta as much as the films themselves.
It's funny how I can say, hey things were shite back then as well, and someone disagrees citing a certain film, which makes be look up a historical review for that film, which reinforces my point. It's, like, it's not even me doing the cherry picking that took me to that page that I didn't know existed until the person I was debating took me there.
