Don't watch it; if you must be prepared
9 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Wait... what do I read there? Armored is somehow like Reservoir Dogs? Let me tell you this.... NO, it isn't. It totally isn't. I didn't have any expectations when I started watching the movie, but I thought the cast looked quite promising (Matt Dillon (Wild Things) Laurence Fishburne (Matrix) and Jean Reno (Leon)) so maybe I had hopes this movie would be entertaining. I was thoroughly disappointed. First of all the dialogs are not worth mentioning. Second, and most important, the story sucks!!! every minute you sit there and think what is probably the most implausible thing that could happen next? And your expectations are surpassed, because something even more implausible happens. That, non-believing acting, a bad script and shitty dialogs make this movie a pain to watch. (But I wanted to know how it ends and if that maybe would be a bit better (it wasn't))

I give this a 3 out of 10, which is really really sad.
