‘Armored’ Movie Got A Couple Of Good Reviews Despite Critic Shutout
“Armored” movie got a couple of good reviews despite critic shutout. Apparently Screen Gems shut most of the movie critics out from pre-screening their new action/thriller flick, “Armored.” However, a couple of critics did get a chance to watch it,and post some reviews. They turned out to be pretty good. It hit theaters today,and it stars : Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward, and Columbus Short.
Brian Orndorf of Brianorndorf.com gave it 3 stars out of 4. He said, “Armored” isn’t the most logical cinematic submission of the year, but I’m not sure I would want it to be.”
Emanuel Levy from Emanuellevy.com gave 2 and a half stars out of 4. He stated, “A minor, unspectacular, utterly forgettable flick when it’s over, “Armored” is nevertheless outrageously entertaining, serving a living proof that there is still juice to be squeezed out of the oldest genres of American film.”
MSN Movies gave it another 2 and a half stars out of 4,stating, “Antal directs with economy, but also knows when he’s working with good stuff like a roaring armored-truck chase through an abandoned steel factory, or when Ty uses hundred-dollar bills to block out prying eyes when he’s holed up inside the truck.”
This movie looks pretty good,and is one, that I’m particularly looking forward to seeing tomorrow. I’ll be posting my own review on it.
