REVIEW: The A-Team

The A-Team

Liam Nesson, Bradley Cooper


June 11, 2010

Joe Carnahan

20th Century Fox

1 hour 58 minutes



This has to be one of the most pointless and mindless movies I've ever seen. Yet, I loved every second of it! John "Hannibal" Smith, Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Bosco Albert "B.A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus, and H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock are the members of a highly-regarded, elite combat unit known as The A-Team. While at the top of their game, the U.S. Military suspect the team of committing a crime that they didn't commit in the first place. Now the team, who have escaped prison and are considered fugitives must clear their names and find the real criminals using their unique and amazing skills at getting in and out of problems. In the words of Mr. T himself, I PITY THE FOOL WHO DOESN'T SEE THIS MOVIE! This is the summer movie that 2010 was looking for, apart from Iron Man 2. What made this movie great and enjoyable were two key factors in it: Top of the line Action and nearly sidesplitting Comedy. The real stars of this movie are Bradley Cooper of The Hangover fame and Sharlto Copley of District 9 fame, which both make this movie as much of a comedy as much as action. Also, Liam Nesson and Rampage Jackson do great jobs as Hannibal and B.A. with all of their action packed scenes being some of the best in the business. Oh yeah, the action sequences were top notch as some of the sequences were real exploding settings with real explosions, while most of the complicated scenes were done with special effects. But on a side note, the one reason why I'm not a fan of 20th Century Fox, who released this movie is because they never fully explain the movie's plot fully and they never show many characters from the movie aside from the main celebric characters. Like most people would expect, this movie isn't for everybody, (see Ebert's review on his website) but if you want two enjoyable hours of mindless action and comedy with no lesson, then you should indeed see The A-Team. Actually, I prefer this movie over The Karate Kid remake, which I also enjoyed. So when there's trouble in hand and the world needs heroes, then call The A-Team, because like Hannibal says in the movie, "We're unbeatable." And like Jessica Biel's character says, "They're the best and they specialize in the ridiculous" which the indeed do. Oh Hell Yeah!

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
