    A solid heist flick elevated by its ensemble cast and the visual eye of Hungarian-born director Nimrod Antal ("Kontroll").
  2. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    A movie like Armored has been done better in the past. But it has also been done much, much worse, and Antal knows enough not to mess with the sturdy bones of the thing.
  3. Director Nimrod Antal’s grungy gang-of-thieves pic is tough and, for this genre, surprisingly ethical.
  4. Reviewed by: Nick Pinkerton
    The camaraderie in the Eagle Shield Transport locker room is strained stuff, despite a capable ensemble cast that includes Matt Dillon and Larry Fishburne.
  5. An initially intriguing plot line makes a messy getaway in this throwback heist movie.
  6. 50
    It's hardly a classic of the genre, but then again, like Armour hot dogs: it's Comfort Food for Men.

    A rule of thumb for characters in heist movies: If the idiots hatching the scheme swear it's "foolproof," it isn't. If they say they've got a rock-solid alibi, they don't. If they're convinced nothing could possibly go wrong, something will.

    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.

    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. Expand
