Over-familiar and industrial, a factory film made because a recycled script, minimal budget, a location, a grab-bag cast and some armored trucks were available.

This is Hollywood at its dumbest.

Radio Times

Antal's attempts to crank up the tension are telegraphed far too often and undermined by a flagrant disregard for logic, meaning this never delivers quite enough bang for your buck.

An action flick that gets bogged down with unlikely plot twists. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Simpson's dialogue flies like a flat-footed homage to Mamet or Tarantino.

Little White Lies

The absolute awfulness of Armoured can't be ignored but with a group of friends and an open bar, there is still plenty of fun to be had.

Lessons of Darkness

Isn't clever or inventive enough to seem like a high-stakes game.

Imagine Reservoir Dogs, re-cut as a completely linear film, then stripped of its snappy dialogue, innovative shot design and compelling characters.

BDK Reviews

Armored has a decent second half but the use of obvious metaphors, cliches and amateur film making knocks the film down to a satisfactory rental.

Antal is never much beyond serviceable here, but he does make a chase-duel between two entirely identical armored cars almost decipherable, which is no mean feat.

Skeletal in its characters and its plot... [C]an't decide what it wants to be...

It's free of gimmicky twists, to be sure, but it's also lacking tension, ingenuity and fun.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

An underwhelming heist-gone-wrong movie that, inexplicably, has avoided going straight to DVD.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Armored should crackle with nervous energy; however, the bland characters don't get much of interest to do and are virtually interchangeable.

This unambitious caper flick takes a while to get moving but gradually develops a modest meat-and-potatoes appeal, compromised in the third act by a whopping and perfectly avoidable plot hole.

This is a mess of unconvincing characters, doolally plotting and dumb flag-waving - the one honest character being an Iraq vet forced to join the others in their brain-dead scam.

Despite an intriguing premise, it doesn't really go anywhere.

Despite reliable work from Dillon and Fishburne, Armored is something of a disappointment, thanks to a dull script and a lacklustre leading performance from Short.
