Movie Reviews: Armored + Star Trek Into Darkness

Armoured (2009)
A group of security guards who work for a low rent armoured car firm plan to steal their next cargo. Their theft is interrupted by a disposable vagrant. One guard changes his mind and there is yelling, shouting and gunfire.

Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishbone (of ‘CSI’ and ‘Hannibal’), Amaury Nolasco (of ‘Prison Break’), Fred Ward, Milo Ventimiglia (of ‘Heroes’) and Skeet Ulrich (of ‘Scream’ and ‘Jericho’) feature in this aggressively bad film which stinked, stank and stunk.

Best Line:
Getting letters from the bank. Some real ugly letters.”

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
The Enterprise crew violate the Prime Directive and then chase down a one man force of nature (Benedict Cumberbatch of ‘Sherlock’). This has action, an unending climax, numerous homages, a cameo and Bones is superfluous to requirements even as he boasts about doing a c-section on a Gorn. This is good but lacks some of the magic of the 2009 original.

Scotty runs around being heroic, Spock's ears look fake, Klingons growl on Kronos which looks like a crapsack world, a volcano erupts, a tribble is a plot point, the villain fights off the Vulcan nerve pinch, there is a mid warp ambush, seatbelts and entire scenes from ‘Star Trek II’ are recreated.

Best Line:
“Ya mad bastard.”
