Armageddon - In Space, Nobody Can Hear You...
This occurs throughout the whole movie. In the space scenes, you can hear sounds during explosions and such. But, sound cannot travel in space because its a vacuum.

If you think about it, though, you will realize that the explosion is not really "fire". The "fire" starts inside ships and expands, using up all of the oxygen. Once it is all used up, it dissapates and the debris drifts away. If you do not believe me, look at pictures of actual bombs going off under water. The explosion looks warped, but ther is still the "orangish" color of fire. And for the comment about no noise in space, Think of what would happen if all of the movies in outer space were filmed with no sounds. It would eliminate the cost of the sound technicians who make the film sound good. That is all for now. :)

This movie would be pretty awful without the sound effects, who wants to watch an explosion without the sound, it would also have strange psychological effects on the audience, and make the movie a lot less interesting

Well sure, that makes sense, but practically the whole movie takes place in space. So, don't you think it'd be awfully boring if there was no sound?

Okay well since the movie does take place in space there should'nt be any sound. But still who would want to see a piece of crap movie like that without sound it would be too damn boring even though it was anyways. The only reason that added sound is so that you didn't get bored with it.

It's just another example of Hollywood (well, mainly just Bruckheimer) feeling the need to dumb down a movie for American audiences. A well-made movie can stick to physics (NO sound in space; none, it's not possible, even with the 100 or so molecules of space dust/ice you may find in any given cubic meter), and still have interesting and exciting space sequences. Look at 2001: A Space Oddysey. Ah, Stanley. Boy are you missed.

Thank God that someone else realizes that! Armageddon would have been a good movie had anyone on the set done any research on the subject of space. Another thing: What's with the fire and explosions in space movies? There isn't any oxygen, how can there be fire?

True, there is no sound in space but come on, all movies that take place in space have sound except 2001. It's a given that a space movie will have thundering rockets and explosions. I'm not defending this pile of crap of a movie though, don't get me wrong.
