Directed by Nimrod Antal, he has made an entertaining, down and dirty/action- thriller. Antal has an strong visual style here, since the clever script by James V. Simpson is pure B Movie material. Especially it is well photographed by Andrzej Sekula and the production designs are first-rate.
There isn't much to the script - Guards working at armored truck company move vast amounts of cash. Guards see opportunity to retire as millionaires, one of them is too honest to go along with it all, and a well-laid plan goes to hell.
When it comes to heists, you’re either in or you’re out, so when you don't go with a plan it’s hard to play the hero and stop greed driven people when it comes to having large sums of money. This movie comes with a star studded cast to keep you interested starring Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco, Fred Ward, Skeet Ulrich, and Milo Ventimiglia.
Bottom line is, Armored is entertaining and therefore a good watch, just make sure you know what kind film you're about to see.
