The odor of musty, late-'80s nostalgia may still hover around this already threadbare brand, but you simply don't see movies that leave both the curious and the fans who truly care this viscerally satisfied anymore.
Kit out the Bates Motel with surveillance cameras, replace Anthony Perkins with the ineffectual Frank Whaley, and you'd have the location for this irritatingly cheapjack snuff-horror thriller, starring Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale as a depressed couple
A host of charismatic character actors, including Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne and Matt Dillon, slum it about amiably in Armoured, a B-movie action thriller, before it all implodes in the final unbelievable act.
None of the plan details so essential to a tense heist drama are given to us; the gang's individual characterisations get lost, and the movie gets boringly marooned in a Reservoir Dogsish abandoned stockyard. Disappointing.
