The A-Team (2010)

This updated feature-film take on the hit 1980s television show follows a group of Iraq War veterans on the run from U.S. military forces while they try to clear their names after being framed for a crime they didn't commit. Along the way, Col. Hannibal Smith, Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock , Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus and Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck help out various people they encounter. Joe Carnahan directs this high-octane actioner.
The A-Team movie was fast-paced and action-heavy, but totally entertaining for a summer movie. It's definitely ridiculous and features lots of explosions, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. Just definitely not story-heavy.

Really? Not understanding the negative reviews I've read of The A-Team. I saw this last night, and was absolutely entertained throughout the entire movie. This film completely captures the ridiculous, exciting, funny nature of the television series. It's filled with thrilling (albeit totally unbelievable) action sequences. It's consistently funny and entertaining, with just enough plot to keep you interested. And it has enough character development to make you fall in love with each member of the A-Team! The four leads in this film have terrific chemistry, and their enthusiasm for the A-Team is contagious. Granted, this is a very silly, unrealistic action movie. But I would call it a perfect summer film. It kept me entertained and laughing right through to the end!


4/5 Stars
