Armored

Critics Consensus

This B-grade thriller has a good cast and director but is undone by plot holes and messy conclusion.

Audience Reviews for Armored

    I think this movie isn't getting the credit it deserves. It did have a few flaws and didn't have a lot of substance but all in all it was exciting to watch and I think it's an above average and unique heist movie. There was a bit of character development with great direction and amazing cinematography and lighting. It also held a strong moral that proves that people can go from being best friends to enemies through their greediness. Ultimately, for a low budget thriller, I was pleasantly surprised by Armored because it was believable and wasn't for that matter, dumb.

    This starts off as a fairly strong thriller with a good build up, but then spirals out a control and gets a little ridiculous, ultimately adding up to something shakey and a fizzled letdown. It's ALMOST fairly good though. There are some parts that are well done, and you can tell that everyone was at least trying. The problem is that the films is really evocative of far better films(mostly Reservoir Dogs) and never reaches that level of greatness. Also, some of the character actions and motivations don't really make much sense, or seem jumbled. I blame the lackluster script. The ideas at hand are kind of cool though, and the film is never boring, but it feels like there's not much at stake, and, like I said, there's not a lot of motivation given (except for one character). The cast are good though, and the performances, while nothing great, aren't out of place for something like this. And, while he's not bad, I wasn't overly impressed with Columbus Short as the lead. He *ahem* comes up short, so to speak. Antal isn't an amazign director, but he's okay, and if he keeps working at it, he could really become a decent director. Overall, this is a decent enough b-movie. A lot of it is not bad, but there's enough that leaves a lot to be desired to keep the rating right where it is. However, I still kind of recommend it.

    I very much enjoy watching action movies with good casts and decent scripts. So although there is not much substance, it felt a well balanced film to switch on and switch off to in the evening.

    Forgettable but entertaining enough.
