    Depends if you want DTS or not. But note that the R1 is not anamorphic (not even the Criterion edition); whereas the R2 and R4 versions are anamorphic. I don't know anything about the R3, but lots (not all) of R3 DVDs are not anamorphic.

    I bought the R2 2-disk version from Woolworths earlier this week. It's in their 2 for 1 DVD offer, so worked out at £9.99.

    In future, when you want to compare regions, use www.dvdcompare.org.uk

    I had the region1 version and got rid of it in favour of the 2 disc region 2 that I got from HMV for £9.99 a few weeks back.
    I think they have changed the offer now to 2 for £20,works out them same though if you can find two titles you want!

    I have 3 versions of Armageddon..and not through showing off. I started with Criterion 'cos it was the dogs at the time, then I got the chance to get the Japanese version which is Engish DTS (awesome sound) yet was still not anamorphic. Then the 2 disc Reg 2 came out which is anamorphic so I got that (each time I got a new one I didnt bother selling my previous version as it had no decent value)
    Now I hear a new Criterion style special ed is coming out sometime on Reg 1 which will be DTS (not heard whether it's anamorphic or not) so I may end up with a fourth version..Sad but true..fortunately I love the movie..:D

    I agree with museumsteve I also have 3 copies. The Japanese DTS is stunning but probably not worth £60 which I have seen advertised for I recommend either the Criterion R1 version or the 2-disc R2 version
