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

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.

The A-Team is a truly awful film, both script-wise and visually -- but if you go in knowing this, the experience is almost fun.

The A-Team overstays its welcome and misses the mark on too many occasions for it to fulfil its initial promise of consistent entertainment.

How it is interesting to watch a movie in which the "action" is essentially colorful abstractions? Isn't it more satisfying if you know where everyone is, and what they're doing, and how they're doing it in real time?

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.

It is, simply put, an ode to violence, but violence as imagined by 21st-century Hollywood.

The big-screen remake of the much-loved 1980s TV series frequently doffs its cap to the original, but is too brash and loud to retain any of its charm.

Where The A-Team falters so resoundingly is in its belief that spectacle equals suspense.

The A-Team is so busy trying to connect with the audience's hearts, minds and wallets that it never quite connects with itself.

To bastardize Pirandello, rather than 6 characters in search of a play, we've got 4 characters in search of a script. While the team's camaraderie jumps off the screen, the plot bombs.

The film seems nearly writer-free. Absolutely no time gets wasted on story, character development or logic.

In his quest to bring the best of '80s action to the big screen, Carnahan nails the homoeroticism but forgets the fun.

To say it's cartoonish would to be insult cartoons.

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

Nothing more than a bunch of money thrown onto the screen, sometimes enlivened by inspired performances but more often content to just sit there, loud and self-satisfied

A smug, swaggering piece of cacophonous mayhem.
