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.

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
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
Even with a hit-and-run running time of under 90 minutes, this solid, low-tension actioner outstays its welcome.
January 22, 2010
Armored is based on a first-time script which, thanks to a bit of industry hype, became the subject of a bidding war among the studios. Sony won the day. Guys, you were robbed.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
Somehow securing cinematic distribution when its script, plot and execution scream straight-to-DVD, Armoured is the worst kind of B-movie: a dull one.
January 22, 2010
This is Hollywood at its dumbest.

What happens when someone leads you into temptation?
