Armageddon

 (1998)

Armageddon Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A low earth orbit space station is in the middle of a repair mission with the space shuttle when an unforeseen meteor shower obliterates them both. This sudden event sends fireballs hurtling to Earth and scientists scurrying to telescopes. An amateur astronomer is the first to spy a gigantic fireball headed towards the planet and notifies NASA. Turner informs the president of the asteroid and describes it as being "the size of Texas," a planet-killer. With eighteen days to impact, NASA frantically tries to find a solution but ends up turning to an outside contractor. Harry Stamper and his team of oilmen are called upon to save the planet as only they can.

Armageddon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rest easy, Armageddoneers. Disney's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is strong enough to satisfy anyone hoping to scour Bruce Willis' closeups for every last pore. In true Michael Bay style, vibrant splashes of color, striking primaries, and inky blacks transform every scene into a living, breathing videogame. Fiery oranges and icy blues illuminate Earth's darkest hour, and bold flashes of light and dazzling explosions light up the screen. Moreover, overall detail is quite impressive, sharp textures reveal more pocks and wrinkles than Affleck and his cohorts might appreciate, a faint veneer of grain permeates the proceedings, and object definition is crisp and clean. Several shots are surprisingly soft -- primarily during key special effects sequences -- but I suspect any such shortcomings trace back to the film's source rather than some mysterious technical oversight. As it stands, I didn't encounter any significant artifacting, aliasing, smearing, or ringing, and source noise, though apparent in a few fleeting shots, never became a distraction. If anything, the image is a bit flat on occasion. For the most part, depth and dimensionality are more than commendable, but each one falters at one point or another. While it certainly isn't a debilitating issue (and while I'm sure the film's age plays a part), it's worth noting nonetheless. Regardless, Armageddon looks great for a twelve-year old catalog title and should turn its share of heads.


Armageddon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney has armed Armageddon with a consistent, able-bodied DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that, quite frankly, obliterates its lossy DVD counterparts. While it didn't leave a crater in the middle of my home theater, it still managed to make a respectable impression. Dialogue remains clear, intelligible, and nicely prioritized throughout, even when Trevor Rabin's score dominates the action and madness erupts around our wily deep-core drillers. Likewise, LFE output is sturdy and stable, infusing streaking meteorites, scattering debris, toppling skyscrapers, and Earth-shaking explosions with decent power and presence. Rear speaker activity, despite being rather reserved at times, effectively drops the listener in the middle of countless panicking crowds and a room full of murmuring NASA engineers. But even though Bay's sound design occasionally favors the front channels -- especially during the boys' training and testing sessions -- there are still plenty of moments when the sound design commandeers the entire soundfield, relishing in every morsel of destruction the director tosses his insatiable audience. Did I forget to mention that pans are swift and smooth, separation is notable, and dynamics are primed to please? All in all, Armageddon's lossless mix complements its video transfer and helps rejuvenate Bay's asteroid-actioner.
