A-Team Movie Reviews
User reviews on A-Team
This was very entertaining. Performances were all very good, effects were interesting, storyline, not much, (plot is a little murky).
The guys of the A Team, all very attractive/intelligent, and that is what saves the movie! Also an good twist toward the end, that actually helps redeem the plot!!
A good way to spend an afternoon/evening in the summer
This movie was entertaining, and fun to watch.
The two new characters of B.A. and Faceman were very good. Their characters developed during the movie. B.A. goes through a spiritual experience. He gets lost in some false religious teachings about peace-only existence. This put him in a position where evil trounced him. Later, he returns to reality.
Face grows in adapting to leadership. The subplots make the movie flow more quickly. I enjoyed the story line.
Some incidents in the movie bothered me. In the opening scene, Faceman is about to be burned alive by a criminal drug lord. The drug man caught Face sleeping with his wife.
En route to rescue Face, Colonel Hannibal Smith meets B.A. The two rescuers arrive in time and kill the drug lord. Much of this felt wrong. When is adultery okay? When a man is bad, it is now acceptable to take his wife to bed, then kill him?report this review for TOS violationpletely wrong.
Throughout the remainder of the movie, the womanizing by the character Face continues, despite advice from Hannibal.
Some unrealistic depictions of military life, repertoire, and conduct also distracted me. I am sure all prior service viewers of this movie will be bothered by the inaccurate portrayal of behavior in the military.
Overall, 4 stars. Great action scenes,report this review for TOS violationplex plans ("I love it when a planreport this review for TOS violationes together.") and well integrated subplots make it a 5. Moral depravity and inaccurate depictions of US soldier's professional are a minus 1.
I love the A-Team! But I just watched the first episode of the Astroboy series and what is up with that? I mean why does anime insist on having such strange caricatures of people in such a hyper-realistic setting? There is always this awesome super-centralized future world where robots do everything in very stupid-specialized robotic fasion, includingreport this review for TOS violationplex insectoid-bots that actually carry buckets of water and squeegies to wash windows, and yet the head scientist looks less human than something from Whoville.
The A Team Was Great Carnahan took an original and made it his own And B.A stands For Bad Ass not Bad Attitude
Looking for a cerebral character study? Then why the hell would you see A-Team!? There's a character in the movie with the initials B.A! That stands for Bad Attitude! He's played by a guy that fights in the UFC! That's right, no touchy, feely stuff here. Just a bunch of explosions and one-liners. If that's what you're looking for, you're in the right place to have a good time.
Based on the 80s TV series, the movie follows the exploits of a team of former Special Forces soldiers who were (say it with me) "set up for a crime they didn'treport this review for TOS violationmit." The story follows them as they try to clear their names and find the real culprit. I say story in the loosest sense of the word. There isn't so much a plot as there is an excuse to blow up a bunch of stuff and shoot a bunch of guns.
The film was directed by Joe Carnahan, who directed the similarly over the top Smokin' Aces. Here, it's sometimes hard to keep tabs on what's going on, but when it's this much fun, I don't really care. It's also great to see real actors like Liam Neeson take on characters that I grew up with. Him being around adds to the legitimacy of the film and elevates the acting to something more than caricature. If only every porting of a television show could be like this.
The A-Team develops into the kind of breezy, tall-tale action film that so many try to make and so few have either the guts or the gall to pull off. Carnahan and the writers have a healthy appetite for taking the more outré stuff in James Bond films—the live-man-trapped-in-the-crematorium scene in Diamonds Are Forever, for instance–and giving it a final turn.
