The A-Team (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: For better and for worse, Joe Carnahan's big-screen version of The A-Team captures the superficial, noisy spirit of the TV series.

Movie Info

Director Joe Carnahan resurrects the popular 1980s-era action series with this explosive reboot following the adventures of four Iraq War veterans who begin a second career as mercenaries for hire. Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (Liam Neeson), Templeton "Face" Peck (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Quinton "Rampage" Jackson), and H.M. "Howlin' Mad" Murdock (Sharlto Copley) are a group of former Special Forces operatives who have been fighting the good fight for eight years when they're sentenced to military prison for a crime they didn't commit. Breaking out with relative ease, they embark on a treacherous quest to clear their names while being hunted across the globe by Charissa Sosa (Jessica Biel), a high-ranking military officer and one of Face's many former lovers. Meanwhile, mysterious CIA operative Lynch (Patrick Wilson) offers tips that help point the federal fugitives in the right direction, which seems to lead straight to former military contractor Pike (Brian Bloom), who may have been responsible for setting them up in the first place. Just when it seems that the A-Team has all the evidence needed to prove their innocence, however, they discover that their latest mission is just getting started. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for The A-Team

All Critics (203) | Top Critics (40)

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

Big Hollywood

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.

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.

The Eighties should sue.

The Ooh Tray

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.

Audience Reviews for The A-Team

½

This was a lot of fun. The actors they chose to do the different parts were actually very well casted. The ridiculous over the top fun that was the A-Team was successfully transplanted to the big screen.

Suspension of disbelief is made almost impossible when a stupid movie like this insults our intelligence from beginning to end, believing to be much smarter than it is (in fact, it is brainless) with a lazy plot that is completely obvious and would only make sense to a retard.

Super Reviewer

½

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
