This week I saw two Matt Dillon movies. Both of them came out around the same time, have one word titles, and involved robbing armored cars. They were also both only mediocre.

Armored is about several armored truck employees who decide to steal 42 million dollars rather than deliver it. Their plan meets resistance when their newest coworker decides not to go along after someone is shot during the heist. As a result, he locks himself in the bulletproof vehicle while his partners try to break in and kill him before the banks realize their shipments are late.

This movie felt like it could have been a made for TV movie and it couldn't have been more than an hour and half long. I liked Dillon in this role more than I did in Takers and it helped to have Jean Reno and Laurence Fishburne playing corrupt security guards. Armored is a guy movie. In fact there is only one female character in the entire movie.

This was not a life changing movie. It was pretty fake, but I still enjoyed it enough to give it 6.6 stars.
