Author Mark Cotta Vaz, who also takes readers behind the camera of the first two Spider Man films, does another through job here. His text takes you from pre-production, filming, post production, and peppers it with comments from both cast/crew about the project The 176 page book is written in an easy going fun style just as the film itself. His examination of Armageddon is neither written over the head, or dumbed down, for the reader. There are dozens of color photos, sketches and effects shot breakdowns. A highlight of the book for me was reading comments from the film's NASA consultants-really cool stuff. Director Michael Bay writes the book's introduction.
For film buffs this is a must read. Armageddon is not a perfect film. For what it is, it works, and is better than some think it is. Recommended. **** and a half stars

will last & the fotos are GORGEOUSE! it explains a lot
the stuff behind the scenes & how it was done. more than
just a quickie movie-tie-in. it is worth having on it's
This has to be a great book on the 1998 blockbuster film. It contains information on all subjects from the film's genesis to final production. Hundreds of lavish photographs and drawing make it even better. It includes interviews with the cast and crew.
However, for people looking for a good book to read, ignore this. The information skips back and forth. One moment they are telling you about how the film began. Then they are telling you about how the special effects were made. Then they are telling about the genesis and so forth. But the lack of definite timeline does not at all hurt the story of the most overcritized film of all time. As Michael Bay said "There is nothing wrong with entertaining people."
