OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 22 moviegoers:We collected reviews at three showing of this movie and were only able to collect 22 reviews. Moviegoers were just not interested in this movie.
TEENS:Two loved it and one rated it average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two loved it and one rated it average.
ADULTS:A little less than half the males enjoyed "Armored" very much. The others rated it "Good/Average," which is decent but not great. The ladies enjoyed it more than the guys. Half of them loved "Armored" and half rated it "Good/Average." Overall these are good reviews but certainly not great reviews. A lower priced matinee may be a good idea.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After the death of his parents, Ty Hackett (Columbus Short) returns from active duty in Iraq to face a stack of unpaid medical bills, a mortgage and the responsibility for his 14-year-old brother, Jimmy (Andre Jamal Kinney). Ty signs on as a guard at Eagle Shield Security, the same armored car service his father worked for. Under the tutelage of his godfather, Chief Officer Michael Cochrane (Matt Dillon), Ty trains for a grueling and often dangerous new career.

On the last day of his probationary period, his co-workers take the young man out for a congratulatory celebration. Over a couple of beers, they trade anecdotes, reveal loopholes in the security system, and discuss failed robberies and successful heists. Cochrane has the topper: an unsolved holdup in Texas that he believes he knows the answer to. The only way it could have happened, he says, is if the guards themselves staged the robbery.

Driving Ty home later, Cochrane reveals that the incident he was talking about inspired him to plan the perfect crime. With a pickup of $42 million dollars coming up, Cochrane proposes to slip away from the route, stash the money in an abandoned warehouse and call in a holdup. No victims, no bad guys and no clues.

All it will take to make six men wealthier than their wildest dreams is the cooperation of every guard involved. Cochrane has already convinced the others: impulsive, hotheaded Baines (Laurence Fishburne); quiet but intense Quinn (Jean Reno); high-strung, vulnerable Dobbs (Skeet Ulrich) and born-again ex-con Palmer (Amaury Nolasco). Ty is all that stands between them and their plans for a better life.

Initially Ty refuses to even consider robbing his employer, but the threat of losing his house to the bank and his brother to foster care convinces him to join his co-workers, under one condition—Cochrane must assure him that no one will get hurt.

On the big day, the pickup of the cash goes smoothly. After checking in with their dispatcher, the men make the brief detour to their selected hiding place. In high spirits, they move quickly to unload the money, but an unexpected interruption changes the game plan. With millions of dollars at risk and their futures on the line, the crew scrambles to salvage what they can and, in one tragic moment, everything changes.
