Breaking down the legacy of Armageddon
Affleck admitted that even his own children laugh at the unlikely premise Armageddon, although the actor also said it was one of his favorite movies he’s been in. The idea that astronauts would have more trouble learning oil-drilling skills than the other guy is all the way around silly, but the filmmakers didn’t let that get in the way of a fun blockbuster romp. an accident In the clip above, Affleck said that when he raised that concern with director Michael Bay, he was told “shut the f*** up.“
