‘Armored’ Movie Delivered A Lot Of Action & Edge Of Your Seat Drama
‘Armored’ Movie delivered a lot of action & edge of your seat drama. Screen Gems released it’s new action/thriller flick, “Armored,” this weekend. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. It had some great intense action scenes. It stars: Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward, and Columbus Short
“Armored” mainly focused around Columbus Short’s character, Ty Hackett. He served in the army,and his parents had just recently died,leaving him with a burdening double mortgage and a younger teenage brother to take care of. He’s now working as a guard for a an armored truck security company,transporting currency.
The turning point of the film,of course, occurs when his pal Mike Cochrone (Matt Dillon) offers him the opportunity to heist about $42 million dollars on one of their truck runs. At first, Ty says he will have nothing to do with it,but Mike tells him the whole gang at work is in on it,and to sleep on it. Also Ty gets faced with more adversity,with the possibility of losing his house and his younger brother to child services.
Ty agrees to go along with the heist as long as know one gets hurt. But guess what. Somebody gets hurt in the process of doing the heist. Actually someone gets killed. That becomes Ty’s exit call from the plan.However, the others still want to go through with it. This leads to a big conflict. One that leads to his life being threatened,and anyone else who opposes the plan. The action really pics up from here,and we see Ty pulling some smart, sneaky moves,saving a cop,and eventually making it out of this situation.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I thought the acting was great. It had some big actors with Lawrence Fishburne,Columbus Short,and Matt Dillon. It also had some good “edge of your seat” moments towards the middle and ending parts. I was totally into it, the entire time. I never got bored.
