I watched this entertaining film along with the subtitles of the director and actors' commentaries. It actually added a layer to an otherwise underwritten heist film for me. I don't think the film ever revealed how the heist would unfold, or may be when reading the subtitles I missed that detail. Nevertheless, didn't matter, it was suspenseful and fun to watch.

bham2013 Surprisingly well acted action movie though while it is explosive, it's not really "fun." The most entertaining part of this "heist gone wrong" movie was discovering that the director's name is Nimrod (Yes, my sense of humor is pretty juvenile...)

Even though there is nothing extraordinary about “Armored", I enjoyed this film. It had a talented cast and an entertaining enough plot.

Great concept. Stupid plot. It made no sense. The "good" guy has a change of heart because he wants no blood on his hands, only every action he takes causes more blood to be shed. It wasn't realistic. I think given the situation, he would have had to continue with the status quo once in as deep as he was. Why cause all the chaos? I never want to see the good guy get killed, but as I watched this movie, I did.

Ok heist concept gone horribly wrong. Nothing that the criminals did after the heist went awry made a bit of sense. The action was made pointless by its own stupidity. I could barely watch this thing after a certain point when it just got plain ignorant. A better script would have done a world of good, as the movie stars a virtual who's who of viable (if not once viable) actors.

Entertaining movie. Not much plot just pure action.

Considering that there were quite a few A-list actors I was disappointed. It seems that the majority of the movie takes in the armored vehicle and it just drags on.

Good - Armored (2009) 88 min. Good action yarn about a guy (played by Columbus Short) who goes along with an armoured truck heist to prevent the creditors from taking the house that he and his kid-brother share alone (after the death of their parents). There is genuine empathy for the Columbus Short character; who has a change of heart and must thwart the plans of his partners. The action is bang-on providing enough thrills to make this entertaining.
