A-TEAM MOVIE, THE(2010)


This was actually pretty good, though the television show was
alot of fun!

From Amazon.com:

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, and District 9 out-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 is insipid and half-hearted--but when it
comes to snarky dialogue and two-fisted action scenes, director Joe
Carnahan is in his comfort zone. It's reasonably fun watching the
working-out of such logistical puzzles as dropping a tank (with crew
inside) from a plane, or scattering the main characters on a dockside
as cargo containers rain down from a ship looming above them. Good
times, although is it asking too much for certain basic laws of physics
(if you drop a human body ten stories, for instance, it might actually
sustain injuries) to be used as a guideline? But worrying about such
matters isn't in the spirit of The A-Team, which cheerfully ignores
the petty concerns of credibility and logic. --Robert Horton
