Review: Running with the Devil

Review: Imprisoned

— by BEV QUESTAD — The great Laurence Fishburne is a master, wielding a haunting script with the finesse of a graceful predator in seemingly complete power over his prey. From the opening scenes of trailer house poverty and wretched nightmares to the flashbacks of his cruelty as prison w[...]

Under Review: ‘Armored’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Imagine this scenario: You desperately need money and your co-worker at the armored truck company offers you the chance to steal a truck that contains $42 million. On top of that, child-welfare services wants to take your brother out of your guardianship[...]

Four Clips From ‘Armored’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Watching a couple of crooks overcome the odds and run off with thousands of dollars in stolen goods is never fun. However, when hilarity ensues during the heist, that’s entertaining. “Reservoir Dogs” and “The Bank Job” are just two e[...]
