70
A solid heist flick elevated by its ensemble cast and the visual eye of Hungarian-born director Nimrod Antal ("Kontroll").
60
Director Nimrod Antal’s grungy gang-of-thieves pic is tough and, for this genre, surprisingly ethical.
60
An unabashed B movie: basic, brutal and sometimes clumsy, but far from dumb, and not bad at all.
60
Antal and his performers’ pure B-movie esprit is undeniable.

Alas, Armored is one predictable and forgettable movie that should consider itself very lucky not to have gone straight to DVD.

Variety
A so-so heist-gone-awry thriller, light on the thrills, Armored doesn't exactly take its audience captive.
50
This unambitious caper flick takes a while to get moving but gradually develops a modest meat-and-potatoes appeal, compromised in the third act by a whopping and perfectly avoidable plot hole.
50
The camaraderie in the Eagle Shield Transport locker room is strained stuff, despite a capable ensemble cast that includes Matt Dillon and Larry Fishburne.
50
An initially intriguing plot line makes a messy getaway in this throwback heist movie.
42
It lacks that extra layer or two to make it interesting. The script and direction is all bones, no flesh.
