No one(TM)s coming to a big-screen version of the lunkheaded TV show expecting The Hurt Locker. But would it have killed the editors to let a single shot breathe for more than two seconds?

Had the action sequences been better framed and presented, this might have been one of the summer's mindless high points. As it is, it's a passable diversion.

Let's just be thankful that Carnahan, instead of redoing "The A-Team," didn't remake "Gandhi." The Ganges would have run red. Pacifism is for wussies.

The A-Team is utterly convinced of its own lovability even as it strains our credibility, abuses our patience, and punishes our eardrums.

To the old box-office maxim that trite makes right, a fresh corollary must be attached: Chaos is the new order, and ugly the new beautiful.

"The A-Team" combines over-the-top action scenes with lifeless jokes and the disappointing result is an uninspired action comedy."

This is not exactly a great film, but it is quite an entertaining one. If you're looking for a fun popcorn flick, then you don't need to look any further.

October 1, 2012 Full Review Source:

The expression 'brainless summer blockbuster' is often used as a pejorative, but energetic and entertaining popcorn like this shows that that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Mildly amusing is the best I can say for the film.

Joe Carnahan shows how the film's titular bad-ass heroes become rogue fighters, but takes an age to do so. The TV show's opening credits managed the same feat in around 20 seconds.

It may well annoy a few of you as much as it occasionally did me, but it will probably also elicit a good few laughs.

I also love it when a plan comes together, but as well-intentioned as this film might be, 'The A-Team' never gels for me. It's so awash in constant action that it takes all the fun of the characters right out of it.

... the set pieces are a confused mess and the character chemistry too weak to hold together the sloppy script despite good casting.

The A-Team is a can of soda -- empty calories, full of fizz. But like a good, cold can of soda on a hot summer day, it's curiously refreshing, tasty and it hits the spot.

Can only ride on our nostalgia for too long before the audience decides it's a tiresome and often confusing mess...

Carnahan and [co] have harnessed the OTT recklessness and cartoonish mayhem of [the show], pumped it full of steroids and delivered a proudly loud and bombastic rendition that pays tribute to its roots without being distractingly slavish.

The A-Team succeeds in blasting onto the big screen with big attitude.

October 22, 2010 Full Review Source: Moviedex

Based on its own merits, The A-Team is a sweet little sugar cube of outrageous fun and almost unparalleled silliness. We may not have asked for it, but I'm thankful we've got it.

Even committed action fans may acknowledge the editing is so frenetic that it's often impossible to know what is going on -- or why.

That rarest of things, a big-budget actioner that's almost impossible to enjoy.

Go and rent the far superior and similarly themed The Losers instead.

Joe Carnahan's movie is loud and vulgar and disorienting, but also an exhilarating kind of fun.

Audience Reviews for The A-Team

This television-series-adaption is nothing but action, explosions, bland storylines and cliched humor. It does possess a strikingly strong cast of heroes (Neeson, Cooper, Rampage, Copley) but it doesn't get the job done as the film is a excessive exaggeration of the TV show. 3.5/5

If you loved the 80's A-Team TV series you will love this movie. Corny lines, impossible missions, it's got it all. It shows how the team formed and how they became fugitives. Great cast. Liam Neeson is brilliant as Hannibal. He's an unexpectedly good action hero. Bradley Cooper is the hunky Face, Murdock is still loopy and BA is still scared of flying. I like Jessica Biel but I don't think she was right for the lead female role. She is pretty but there's no substance to this character. I think someone like Demi Moore or Jodie Foster would have been better, more gutsy and edgy or even Jessica Alba would have been a better choice.

An explosive, stylish, outrageous and exhilarating action thrill-ride. A smart, thrilling, wickedly funny and adrenaline-pumping action-packed adventure that you will love. A tremendously entertaining roller-coaster ride of a movie that packs exactly what you want. A heat-seeking missal of non-stop action, sizzling suspense and outrageous comedy. A great movie that's just pure non-stop fun from beginning to finish and even after that you want more. There is no Plan B when it comes from the coolest television team who make it to the big screen with a fantastic and charismatic all-star cast leading the way. Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton Jackson are absolutely sensational, these guys are an absolute joy to watch. They have the perfect chemistry to make this team of crazy, out of control characters work well. Neeson is fantastic, you can tell he's having a blast with this great character. Cooper is terrific, giving off plenty of cool attitude and charm. Copley and Jackson are hysterical together. Director, Joe Carnahan takes his game to a whole new level. A hilarious, pulse-pounding, relentlessly cool and frequently awesome movie. It delivers a few knockout twist and turns that will keep you guessing. The A-Team is the team to route for in this cant-miss entertainment.
