Armored (2009)

Under financial and familial pressure armoured truck guard Ty Hackett joins in with his friends to steal $42 million they are transporting but something goes wrong.


Sometimes the simplest plan is the best. This heist thriller might disappoint some by not having the typical convoluted wheels-within-wheels ‘unexpected’ double-cross-at-the-end heist plan but it’s tight focus and tidy direction means that it is exactly the kind of guy movie Hollywood should be producing outside of the massive budget blockbusters.

This movie contains a single sexual swear word, mild swear words and gory and unpleasant scenes, violence.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
