3.0 out of 5 stars A little more suspense Feb. 1 2010
By R. M. Silkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
The classic take on what happens when people get greedy. Yeah, the movie is for the most part predictable and somewhat cliche ridden. Overall, it's not the worst movie I've seen. Good flick on a rainy day or night when nothing else is on. While it may not overwhelm you with it's storyline you at least will be entertained.....and then go on about your business!

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Awful Script Dec 12 2012
By David C. Glebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
While the script of this movie is so full of holes that it becomes laughable, the movie does have minimal entertainment value because some of the acting and action sequences are decent. And in fact, the underlying "story" is so mindless, so shallow, and so amateurish, that these aspects become entertaining in themselves, in the "so bad that it's good" manner, reminiscent of the old Mystery Science Theatre 3000 shows. So I guess if you approach this film with low or no expectations, you will get some enjoyment out of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tightly written, acted and directed little caper film Sept. 5 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
ARMORED is a tight little film about friendship in the workplace, betrayal, and convictions - and oh yes, it is a heist caper story. For openers this viewer was perturbed that the cast listed on the cover of the DVD and certainly in the credits of the film focuses on 'names' of actors we all know, supposedly to anchor an audience. But the main character of this film is played by Columbus Short, and because he is not as famous, his name appears at the end of the list, very much in the shadow of the big guys names who have far less to do with the story. But that is Hollywood marketing issue...

Ty Hackett (Columbus Short) has returned to the US from a heroic tour in Iraq, his parents have been killed in an auto accident leaving Ty in charge if his younger artistic but somewhat schoolphobic brother Jimmy (Andre Kinney): Ty has joined a squad of armored guards who transfer money from banks to banks, and yet is not making enough money to support his home life. He needs a raise or more shifts. He is well-liked and respected by his team of fellow guards - Boss Ashcroft (Fred Ward), head guard Mike Cochrane (Matt Dillon) who is Ty's godfather, Quinn (Jean Reno), Baines (Laurence Fishburne), Dobbs (Skeet Ulrich), and Palmer (Amaury Nolasco). There is a particularly heavy load of money to pick up and Mike, knowing that Ty needs additional funds, unveils a plan to mimic a well-known but unsolved heist: the plan is to pick up the money ($42 million), hide it, destroy the truck, and keep the money divided among the guards. Ty balks at the plan, but when the Welfare Department threatens to place Jimmy in a foster home, Ty reluctantly aligns with the plan - being promised that no one will get hurt. Mike repeats 'There are no bad guys here' and the heist begins. Needless to say the heist goes wrong - the act in observed by a homeless person and is killed by the Baines. A passing police officer (Milo Ventimiglia) hears the shots and stops to inspect, and is also shot by Baines. Ty freaks and seeing that he knows too much, is locked in his van with the police officer whom he nurses and reassures he will get them both out alive. Jimmy is brought in as a hostage and that is Ty's breaking point. Some twists and turns occur, more of the group die, and the finale leaves Ty in a position better than expected.

Director Nimród Antal ('Control', 'Vacancy', 'Predator', etc) understands the importance of pacing a film and the story moves like a rapid transit train out of control, heightening the drama. The finest work in the film is by star Columbus Short, but all of the costars turn in credible roles. It is not a great movie by any means, but it is worth watching as an action drama of friendships betrayed. Grady Harp, September 10

4.0 out of 5 stars Armored March 17 2010
By TREND700 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A crew of officers who worked at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist against the company they work for. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with $42 million from a bank. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off. Good, boring or bad? It's good. Better than the trailer makes it seem. There isn't much to the script. The skill of the cast and the director's ability makes it onto a solid footing. Good movie, surprisingly tense.

4.0 out of 5 stars A PREDICTABLE-BUT-FUN HEIST THRILLER! March 9 2010
By Steven Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Armored" is another film in the heist thriller genre. Here, we find a group of men working for an armored truck company that decide to stash $42 Million worth of money they picked up during a routine job, with the plan of making it look like they were robbed, then run with the money. But as things go with plans like this, they usually go awry. While the plot is predictable, there is no denying that it's a fun, if conventional, addition to the genre. The cast and crew make up for a lot with some terrific performances, along with some great tension-filled moments and exciting chase sequences. Fans of the genre will find little to disappoint with "Armored."
