Around 18 this afternoon I took Gizmo for a walk to Jade Garden to getsome chinese food. There were people and cars everywhere, even more than it usually issaturday nights when everybody is going out to clubs in Paceville. I asked the owner of Jade Garden and he said it was some all-maltese movie showing at the cinema.
The line of cars reached almost all the way up to my street in Swieqi
Unfortunately the maltese movies are in maltese (surprise), otherwise it would have been fun to see this one!
As the title itself suggests the movie is a parody of the 1998 film ‘Armageddon’, however all Earth’s hopes do not rest on the shoulders of the mighty and experienced US Space Program. Instead the burden has to be shouldered by the Maltese who hastily patch up a motley crew of Maltese guys coming from all walks of life and from all corners of the island and who do not know the meaning of professionalism and teamwork . The movie takes the viewers through a rollercoaster ride of mishaps, laughs, rivalries, friendship and drama culminating in a thrilling finale where success and total disaster hang in the balance. Will the Maltese crew succeed in its mission, silence all the critics and come out with colours flying? Or will their differences and personal rivalries spell the end for all mankind?
