    Having not heard anything about this movie I went in with an open mind and found myself enjoying Armored. It isn't an award winner and it isn't the most interesting and plot twisting story but it is short and makes the hour and a half you spend watching it worth it.

    The "acting" is cringe worthy.

    The usually wise charactered Fisbourne plays a total fool and dillon is super annoying.

    The plot is ridicolous and seems half way through they ran out of creativity and didn't know how to end it.
    Why didn't they just give Still it's easy to watch and isn't too boring so acheives something to pass the time.

    This movie felt very short, fast-paced, quick, and good in an odd mix. The writing was lacking a bit, because nothing seemed to be happening while the movie still managed to be a rather good one, moving forward constantly.

    The characters had very little introduction, but the cast was good. I watched this movie to see Milo Ventimiglia in it, but Jean Reno, Amaury Nolasco, Skeet Ulrich
    This movie felt very short, fast-paced, quick, and good in an odd mix. The writing was lacking a bit, because nothing seemed to be happening while the movie still managed to be a rather good one, moving forward constantly.

    The characters had very little introduction, but the cast was good. I watched this movie to see Milo Ventimiglia in it, but Jean Reno, Amaury Nolasco, Skeet Ulrich and Laurence Fishburne didn't hurt either. All in all the performances were good, surprisingly so.

    There was some serious stumbling in character development, though; where in the beginning Mike (Matt Dillon) swore that he was going to take care of Ty and his brother Jimmy, who had been recently orphaned and are struggling to keep their home, the genuine will to help turned to lust for money at some point - for the whole crew. The change happened so fast I wasn't sure where it came from, because when a man who is first giving you advice and being your best buddy tries to run over you by the end of the day... well, you get the point.

    All in all I was rather pleased with this movie, and can imagine watching it again. It isn't a strong story, but a good portrayal of a crime gone very wrong when things start to go downhill despite the good planning beforehand.

    And this much must be said about Milo's performance as Eckehart: creepily, embarrassingly real! Because I can imagine a grown man will look and sound like that when they are shot, no matter how tough they are. Brilliant.

    Alas, Armored is one predictable and forgettable movie that should consider itself very lucky not to have gone straight to DVD.

    A so-so heist-gone-awry thriller, light on the thrills, Armored doesn't exactly take its audience captive.
  3. Director Nimrod Antal’s grungy gang-of-thieves pic is tough and, for this genre, surprisingly ethical.
