Movie Info

A disgraced bodyguard is torn between duty and vengeance when he's forced to protect the very same assassin who previously murdered his client. John Ridley (Til Schweiger) has been sworn to protect, and when he fails at his job, he simply walks away. Haunted, he spends years attempting to erase the image of a client being killed right before his eyes. But when Ridley is offered a job that could set him up for life, he has no choice but to accept. Little did Ridley realize that the man he would be protecting is Lee Maxwell (Chazz Palminteri). It was Maxwell who dispatched with Ridley's client as the helpless bodyguard watched in horror, and with three days to go before the cold-blooded hit-man testifies before the grand jury, the man hired to guard his life begins plotting his revenge.

Audience Reviews for Body Armour

Terrible dialogue. Terrible effects. Terrible plot. Terrible performances. Terrible SFX. Terrible ADR. Mr. Schweiger, I hope you only did this for a paycheck. This is crap. Also, why the heck does everyone have different accens? It seems out of place for a movie spoken in English and taking place in America.

A slick, fast-paced, very cool and exciting action-packed thriller. It's smart, surprisingly funny and wonderfully character driven all the way through and delivers some sharp gun battles and fight scenes. A fun, explosive, and stylish action film with energy to spare. Til Schweiger and Chazz Palminteri are terrific, they have some great moments and show some great depth to their characters. Schweiger has the presence and subtly of a great action hero. An awesome retreat to old-school action movie excitement. It's a great film that has a surprising twist at the end.

Who writes this stuff? Inane brainless shoot em up. Ridiculous situations, characters that make no sense. A good action film should go somewhere, the only place this is going is to the trash pile.
