1998 ****
Original Theatrical Cut runs 151 mins.
Director's Cut runs 153 mins.

Michael Bay's sci-fi epic about a metor heading towards the earth and the crew of oil drillers sent up to save the world may be cheesy at times, but in terms of fun, this is as good as they come. Two and a half hours have never gone by as fast as with this film. Great special effects and many classic moments; after all, there are Criterion DVD and LaserDisc releases of this film.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (Panavision)
Rated PG-13 for sci-fi disaster action, sensuality and brief language.
