The A-Team is . . . well, not so bad... it achieves exactly what it sets out to do.

A loose, assured, streamlined actioner with little else on its mind than showing the audience a great time.

No brain power required - enjoy the ride!

Other than last year's Star Trek and perhaps The Fugitive from '93, I'm hard-pressed to think of a TV-to-film translation that steps as assuredly or reinvents itself as skillfully.

The biggest problem with the film version is material that shuts out a core part of its potential audience.

At least The A-Team is conscious of how daft it is. It doesn't try to be anything except fast, noisy, mindless Friday-night fun, and it accomplishes that mission with relish.

So The A-Team was pretty much like Prince of Persia: not a great movie but entertaining. I laughed for two hours and everything blew up.

The A-Team certainly explodes onto the big screen in a major way.

"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.

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.

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...
