Product Description

A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist.against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.

Amazon.com

A good cast does its best to make Armored roll, but while this heist flick certainly has its moments, it's ultimately arrested by a predictable story, cliché-ridden dialogue, and ham-fisted direction. Matt Dillon plays Mike, the leader of a sextet of guards working for an armored truck company; other members of the team are portrayed by Laurence Fishburne, Jean Reno, Skeet Ulrich, and Amaury Nolasco, but the key is newcomer Ty (Columbus Short), an Iraq War veteran whose parents have both died, leaving Ty to support his troubled younger brother and somehow pay the mortgage on the home their folks left behind. When Mike and the others cook up a scheme to steal a cool $42 million on their next delivery and then claim they were hijacked, Ty is dead set against it--until he goes home and is greeted by a child-welfare official who threatens to put his brother into foster care unless Ty can prove himself capable of looking after the kid (this is but one of the handy plot conveniences designed to push the story forward). Predictability is one thing, but director Nimrod Antal and screenwriter James V. Simpson's setups are so on-the-nose that Helen Keller could see what's coming ("Promise me nobody gets hurt," Ty says to Mike, which guarantees that the body count will start to mount almost instantly). Armored has some good action sequences, a gritty look, a couple of welcome surprises, and the occasional tense moment. But when the great heist movies are recalled, from Topkapi to Sexy Beast, this one is unlikely to be among them. --Sam Graham

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!

This movie might have you asking that question. Quite suspenseful and interesting film that should keep your attention to the end. The PG-13 rating is stretched very thin in my opinion but not an overly violent or abusive language movie. Matt Dillon brings quite a bit to it as well and have not seen a movie yet with him in it I didn't like. The storyline I thought was well written and there we some parts that did touch me personally. Overall, pretty decent movie that is good enough to see at least once.

"Armored" is a kind of different story. This group of guards in armored trucks decide to still millions of dollars from the money they are hauling and hide it for later. But as can be expected, everything that can goes wrong. So the results are tragic.I recommend it to fans of crime dramas.

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.

I read the customer reviews on this before I purchased so I had a good idea of what the storyline was going to be -- but seeing is believing. It was just one mishap after another-- I was like "OMG, what next?. . " very good movie.

What starts out as just another routine inside heist movie, turned out to be one of the better heist movies that I've seen in a long time..even if it went wrong.. Lots of action and suspense, decent acting and the story moves right along. The only disappointment was the end

*spoiler alert of sorts* ....

When the line comes up from Duncan Ashcroft (Fred Ward): "there's talk of a reward", given the sub-plot about Jimmy and Ty, it would have been nice for a little epilogue, even a small sentence to let us know that they were going to be fine.. "There's talk of a reward." could mean anything.. and a small smirk from Ty isn't a resolve - again, he doesn't know what that entails at that moment..

*spoiler done*

Other than that, I really enjoyed the film.. Good popcorn flick.. so long as you don't overthink it too much. Eckhart (Milo Ventimiglia) the cop is hot eye-candy, and Matt Dillon (Mike)never seems to age and gets better year by year.. but what the hell has happened to Skeet Ulrich? He looks a hot mess these days. :/

When this movie came out in 2009, to be honest with you, I really wasn't that intrigued by it nor did the trailer compell me to go see the movie. Maybe it was the presentation to me at the time but then again, I thought that I would just wait it out and just rent it when it comes out. That was 5 years ago. I was at the local discount store and I saw this little gem in the $8 bin. So I snagged it and watched the DVD last night. Do I regret not seeing this movie in the theaters? No. Do I regret not buying this movie when it came out on DVD? Yes. The story to me is solid and it kept me guessing which way it was going to end up. Not to mention that the movie is different and this is a different take on a heist movie. As per the extras in the DVD, there were no real bad guys in the flick. Just greedy men that got too greedy for their own good in the end. Columbus Short's character was surprisingly good in this movie and didn't bore me with the usual "Hero of The Day" antics. This movie also kept it simple and got to the point. The supporting cast really should have gotten more props for this movie as their characters were just as robust. This is definitely a must have for your own personal video library.
