News & Interviews for Armored
Critic Reviews for Armored
An unabashed B movie: basic, brutal and sometimes clumsy, but far from dumb, and not bad at all.
Armored won't win any prizes, but it does offer comforting evidence that there's still room for a well-crafted B movie among CG-laden spectacles.
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.
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.
It's a film without twists, where everything is what it seems, and when the mess has been resolved, it's even at a loss for a proper denouement. Armored just ends-and with it, so does the access to plush chairs and free air conditioning.
Audience Reviews for Armored
Boy does this start crappy, I mean come on...a film trying to make security guards look cool haha I think they've made a film about almost every kind of uniformed job in some aspect at some point trying to make them cool or just send them up. I'm currently waiting for an action film about train drivers or maybe light rail/tram drivers haha. It starts off in the usual boyish, backslapping, act tough n look rough way which is totally hilarious and stupid. You meet the cast which is actually a good line up but boy do they ham it up in a bad way, in fact this could of been a Bay film had it been laden with over the top CGI. The plot is the usual predictable heist gone wrong so you know the outcome from the start, the only question is who dies first from the 'baddie' crew? To be honest it does get better near the end as the tension mounts but you can see miles off what's gonna happen. Predictable, cliched, dumb, over the top, totally unbelievable and unnecessarily macho at times, this is perfect Saturday night stuff when your drunk with your mates. But between me and you even then its still a pretty lame action flick.
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.
