Exciting, and Ultimately Surprising, Heist Flick, Starts Slow, but Definitely Picks Up.

I thought this was an exceptionally tought thriller about truck drivers robbing their own armored trucks. The acting is better than expected and the action is done quite well. The only flaws are the lack of logic (but, then gain, who goes to movies to see logic?) and the very slow start. Once you get past the first half-hour or so, it proceeds to be very intense until the very end. PARENTS: This is an exceptionally violent film with, once again, exceptional amounts of blood for a PG-13. Please use caution when bringing a little one. In fact, I saw a little girl leave the theater crying on this one (no joke). How sad. Although bloody, I do recommend this film fairly highly. Well, thanks for reading - Movie Man

Dumb albeit fun action flick with lots of violence and language

Armored is one of those popcorn flicks that isn't particularly smart, complex, or memorable. What it offers up is a fun, brainless, and dumb action-packed ride that lasts only 80 minutes or so. The story is about a group of armored truck drivers who transport money to and from different locations every work day. One day, some of the men devise a plan to steal from their own armored trucks to help them with mortgage troubles. One man in particular named Ty is reluctant about the idea, and soon finds himself trying to stop these would-be robbers. The main message then, is to not steal. That's great, but it's hard to focus on that main idea when the rest of the movie contains gory gunshots, explicit language, and occasional drinking, Overall, Armored is a fun movie that doesn't have many brains but offers up some good action sequences. If your an adult with teens, rent it. You might be suprised how entertaining it is.

Perfect for kids 14+. NOT under 14

Very bloody. Great movie over all though. Good casting. Just think about taking someone under 14 to it though I saw so many teens just walk out of the theater looking like they just could not handle anymore. Great movie

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...
