Review
Big, big-budget blockbuster with Bruce Willis as the man signed up to save the world. A huge special effect, sorry - asteroid, "the size of Texas" is heading for Earth, but hey, there's no need to get all serious about it. With eighteen days to go before armageddon, let's send in hotshot oil driller AJ (Brucie) and his twelve-strong team of wise-cracking, roughneck workmen, land them on the asteroid and let them plunge their big drills into unchartered geology, hopefully making a swift getaway before the little blighter is detonated and, fingers crossed, annihilates itself. An amusing first half, followed by a smugly gung-ho finale. Forget politics and logic, this is pure Hollywood fodder, with extra cheese.
