2 ½ Stars: I Pity The Fools Who Made This Film Close But No
The 80’s TV show called “The A-Team” was a product of that generation. Sure, it was cheesy, sure it was campy at times and sure it often feels like a team of “MacGyvers” who can build things to get out of a situation, I also never saw them ‘kill’ in the TV series. Well, I am sure this was a long time coming, so now the TV series gets a ‘face-lift’. 2010’s “The A-Team” is meaner, louder and has a plot that seemed inspired by …

** out of ****     I'm not the biggest fan of "The A-Team" and I'm not the biggest fan of director Joe Carnahan; which probably accumulates to some sort of explanation to why I was never expecting the big-screen adaptation of everyone's favorite "dumb fun" action Television series to be anything amazing. And what do you know: it ends up being exactly as I expected. Carnahan's "The A-Team" is a noisy action flick; an explosion filled thrill-ride that's all guns and no muscle. …

I didn't see that many good films in 2010. In fact, the only other two good ones that I saw besides this are Scott Pilgrim and Inception. I saw this with my oldest brother on his birthday, and I was one of three females in the theatre, and definitely the only one who looked like I was enjoying myself. I definitely was, because The A-Team was a really fun movie.      The purpose of all movies is not just to educate. Some are made to entertain, like the likes of this and Prince …

JUST PLAIN FUN
      THE A TEAM      When this film was first announced I was really excited for it because one of my favorite Mixed Martial artists Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson would star in it. Of course you know I had tog o see it and own it when it was released on DVD and Blu Ray. So here we are and I am finally going to review it, something I should have done a while back. Still better late than never I always say, or is that some one else's saying, anyway.   …

The film is just straight up fun, nothing more nothing less, if you try to turn on the brain you may disappointed. Everything in this movie goes bang and everything is pure dumb fun. I knew this going in luckily so I had a great time watching it. Not to mention that mixed martial artist Quinton "Rampage" Jackson plays BA, love it.

I Pity the Fool who doesn't like The A-Team!
TV Show Adaptations have been the theatrical kiss of death for a long time now. Not because the idea of taking an old beloved television series and modernizing it in a feature film isn't a plausible idea, but because the studios almost always drop the ball. Most of the time, they play the revival for comic effect instead of nostalgic revival, like The Dukes of Hazard, Starsky and Hutch and Charlie's Angels. When they occasionally do take the update …

I'd like to pretend, being a child of the 80s, that I have great and fond memories of the TV series The A-Team. I'd like to, but, well, I can't because I don't. I dimly remember seeing a couple episodes at my uncle Scott's house, and I certainly remember the merchandising bonanza centered around it, but I don't really remember being all that into the show. Perhaps because when you get down to it, it's pretty forgettable.    Speaking of forgettable things, let's talk about the …

There is some semblance of a story in "The A-Team." I seem to recall the team members being framed for a crime they didn't commit, a plot to recapture counterfeit treasury plates, a lot of double crossing, Bradley Cooper trying to rekindle a relationship with Jessica Biel, and scene after scene of escaping and jumping and falling and exploding and running and flying, most of them aided by heavy computer graphics and a very unsteady camera. That's about it. Is this enough to sustain a nearly two …

Dull, stupid, cliche and quite frankly boring on many levels Joe Carnahan's "The A-Team" is as convoluted as it is childish it ceases to amaze with its constant action and lack of direction leave little room for you to really enjoy or be entertained by this over stylized shoot'em up/ revenge film.

About this movie

Wiki

Give it up to the A-Team: they've always been good at demolishing things in big, big ways. Freed from the confines of the 1980s TV series, the 2010 blockbuster movie version allows the four members of the paramilitary squad to really amp up the mayhem to newly crazed heights. Liam Neeson plays team leader Hannibal Smith (inheriting the cigar-chomping from the show's George Peppard), and pro wrestler Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is "B.A." Baracus, the TV show's most iconic character (insert Mr. T "I pity the fool" joke here). As the vain Face, Bradley Cooper preens in convincing fashion, andDistrict 9out-of-nowhere star Sharlto Copley plays the unhinged pilot "Howlin' Mad" Murdock. These boys are on the trail of some money-counterfeiting plates, from Bagdad to Germany to places in between. It would be understating it to say that the plot is not of primary importance, although Patrick Wilson has some fun as a CIA official and Jessica Biel occasionally strikes poses as Face's ex-flame, now a military officer displeased with the A-Team's extra-legal shenanigans. The storytelling ...
