Armored

Armored is a 2009 heist film starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, and Laurence Fishburne as armored car drivers who decide to steal 42 million dollars and claim they were robbed. I found it predictable.

trailer:



The Guardian calls it "disappointing". The Hollywood Reporter says "plot improbabilities begin to mount as high as an escalating body count, ending with a whimper of a disappointingly slack payoff." Variety calls it "A so-so heist-gone-awry thriller".

Empire Online concludes, "Whilst applauding the old school ambitions of this classic style of crime caper, there's not enough quality in plot, script or character to make it hold together." Roten Tomatoes has a critics score of 39%.

  3. My friend Scott had a copy. We watched it and it really WAS predictable, disappointing, and rather bloody. Even Tarantino couldn't have saved that one.

    1. Tarantino _might_ could've saved it. Of course, he'd have had to re-write it ;)

    1. Yes, this is a minor work at best.
