armored is a good action movie but parents this movie does have a lot of intense violence that's goes way off the charts characters used a lot of strong language there's also some drinking, smoking, and drugs in the movie.

age 17+

Only for Adult audience

Acting is superb!!! for an action film, againg, all actors are good, and Matt Dillon delivers - once again! too bad, Hollywood under-utilizes this super-talented actor. He can really play ANYTHING, not just a tough/rough/macho whatever...
