view all

A Texas-sized asteroid is hurtling towards earth, NASA gets nervous, and it's up to oil driller Harry Stamper (Willis) and his misfit crew to turn astronaut, blast off into space, land on that rock, and blow the sucker to kingdom come. Ya get a little romance as hotshot A.J. Frost (Affleck) smooches with babe Grace (Tyler), who's Harry's nubile daughter. Lots of action (naturally), some humor, and some sappy, heart-tugging moments for perfect put-your-brain-on-hold entertainment. The second "space rock hits earth" movie, following the somber "Deep Impact."

A team of oil-riggers are wanted to dig a hole in a giant asteroid, that could kill life on earth, and put a bomb in it. These men are just your everyday average man, and they have to train to go into space in a short amount of time. They have a huge responsibility. Harry is Graces dad and AJ is her fiance. Harry has to sacrifice his life so that AJ can go back home and take care of his daughter. The end of this movie is really sad and you will cry your eyes out.
