Trivia

There was initially a subplot/ backstory for Matt Dillon's character in which his wife was dying, hence his need for more money. This was ultimately dropped to create a leaner running time. See more »

Very missable straight to DVD action film

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Ty (Columbus Short) begins his new job as an armoured van driver, carrying large sums of cash around. But he's fallen on hard times, struggling to raise his wayward younger brother, whilst his older, more experienced co workers, Mike (Matt Dillon), Quinn (Jean Reno) Baines (Laurence Fishburne) have troubles of their own. Suddenly, Mike suggests an audacious plan to him: stage a robbery of their own, and sort their various problems out. But of course, it doesn't run smoothly and before long Ty finds himself in way over his head.

Struggling with elements of high concept here and there, Armoured emerges as little more than a formulaic, by the numbers time filler, with a story that's been done before and just goes through the motions to the end. There's an all star cast line up, but they've all fallen on hard times, half the big stars they once were and therefore with half the dynamism and charisma. Appearing in the likes of this, the sort of film you watch on a red eye flight as you're falling asleep, would now seem to be their calling in life. **
