armageddon: a tear jerker

armageddon is a story about planet Earth being in jeopardy as a result of a crater or meteor heading toward Earth to cause destruction of life. In the story, these oil riggers are hired by NASA to go into space and destroy the crater before it reaches Earth and destroys all life and the planet itself. As the oil riggers find out or discover, the only way to destroy the crater would be if one of them remain behind and set the explosive to go off from within the crater. Bruce Willis character remains behind to give his life so he can save the world. The very first time I watched this movie, I cried, especially when Bruce Willis's character says goodbye to his daughter via sattelite, just before his body explodes along with the crater.
