Armageddon (1998) (part 13 of 13)
Thankfully, there’s not a whole hell of a lot left for me to recap here. Believe me folks, I’m just as exhausted as you are.
Rastaroid finally blows up, and for some reason, it explodes into a supernova, and the shuttle crew winces as the bright light hits their eyes. As Rastaroid detonates, it sends out cartoon waves of concussive force that are strongly reminiscent of the Klingon moon Praxis blowing up in Star Trek VI. So now this movie is reminding us of other movies that are simply “meh”.
Cut back to Mission Control, where everyone is euphorically cheering. Um, a guy just died, so I think in reality the celebration would be a bit more muted.
