ARMORED trailer… Fishburne, Dillion, Reno, Ventimiglia, Ulrich, Ward, Short: Interesting cast! by COOP

I like heist films when they’re done right and that’s uncommon. I loved “The Italian Job” but that’s the last one I remember digging at all (Does “Reservoir Dogs” count?). Yes, I’m counting all of the “Ocean’s 11” movies. No, I didn’t like them.

Most are usually smug (“Oceans”), uncharismatic (“Entrapment”) or try to be clever but the end up boring (“Duplicity” & “The Inside Man”). Even David Mamet screws it up (“Heist”). Call me a hater if you like, but heist movies need something special. A great ensemble cast is only half of the equation. The other half… audacity. It’s gotta wow me with some pretty outrageous and clever stuff or be brutal and tough stuff.

“Armored” appears to have the later. It looks like a great “perfect crime gone wrong” movie with lots of the main characters offing each other. I like the gritty, all male cast which definitely has the potential to score on the chemistry aspect. “Larry” Laurence Fishburne and Milo Ventimiglia needs to get off of their “CSI” and “Heroes” sets for a bit. Jean Reno is always welcoming as is Matt Dillon. I’m glad to see that Ulrich hasn’t fallen off the face of the Earth and I’m glad to see Fred “Remo Williams” Ward getting work. I don’t know this Columbus Short guy but he looks like he’s got some chops. Judgment be reserved but until then, I might look forward to this one.

Trailer now…

Morgan Freeman asks Coop a question at THE BEST DAY premiere! Video below…


My short film THE BEST DAY premiered in October 2011 at the Delta Cinema in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Little did I know I had a special guest in the audience who was about to ask me a question during the Q&A. Yep, I got a little flustered when I saw who it was.
