No-nonsense B crime thriller.

An action flick that gets bogged down with unlikely plot twists. Paul Chambers, CNN.
March 29, 2010
Isn't clever or inventive enough to seem like a high-stakes game.
March 25, 2010
It's free of gimmicky twists, to be sure, but it's also lacking tension, ingenuity and fun.
March 12, 2010
Director Nimod Antal's stripped-down genre exercise -- there's not even a hint of a romantic subplot -- is unremarkable but efficient.

You'd have to put me in a lock box to see it again.

Armored should crackle with nervous energy; however, the bland characters don't get much of interest to do and are virtually interchangeable.
January 22, 2010
A host of charismatic character actors, including Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne and Matt Dillon, slum it about amiably in Armoured, a B-movie action thriller, before it all implodes in the final unbelievable act.
January 22, 2010
None of the plan details so essential to a tense heist drama are given to us; the gang's individual characterisations get lost, and the movie gets boringly marooned in a Reservoir Dogsish abandoned stockyard. Disappointing.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
Despite an intriguing premise, it doesn't really go anywhere.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
Armored's first half is an overwrought, eye-rolling bro-venture, but once the actual robbery takes place, the film ratchets up into a solid testosterone-soaked thriller.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
An underwhelming heist-gone-wrong movie that, inexplicably, has avoided going straight to DVD.
January 22, 2010
Things are jollied along by some very stiff acting, especially from Dillon. The film, shot in crisp widescreen, is surprisingly pleasant to look at. It is also surprisingly restrained.
January 22, 2010
The internecine calamity that ensues is nicely paced by Nimrd Antal - great name- and played with full-grimace intensity by Laurence Fishburne, Jean Reno, Skeet Ulrich and, the single phoner in the performances, Fred Ward. A safe bet for a DVD night.
