The A-Team Reviews

Joe Carnahan's movie is loud and vulgar and disorienting, but also an exhilarating kind of fun.
July 8, 2010
The A-Team's cocktail of convoluted scheming, smirking one-liners, and unabashed mayhem is unsurprisingly well-suited to its demands. But it's still junk. Surely we've moved on?

No oneâ(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.

I was not charmed by it.

Heavy on biceps and aggression and -- crucially -- the zinging chemistry between its four leads
June 11, 2010
The A-Team is utterly convinced of its own lovability even as it strains our credibility, abuses our patience, and punishes our eardrums.
June 11, 2010
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.
June 11, 2010
The A-Team is so busy trying to connect with the audience's hearts, minds and wallets that it never quite connects with itself.
June 11, 2010
Nothing - not the characters, not their stories and certainly not their violence - is meant to register deeply. Their words and worlds are disposable; it's no wonder they fade so fast.
June 11, 2010
The toss-away jokes? Who cares? The idea that B.A. Baracus becomes a peacenik in the middle of the film? Who cares? The ending's complete lack of resolution? Who cares?

This team may have given itself an A, but viewers likely won't be so generous.
June 11, 2010
To say it's cartoonish would to be insult cartoons.
June 11, 2010
It's trash so compacted it glows.
June 11, 2010
A thoroughly unnecessary but nonetheless satisfying adaptation of the cheeseball 1980s TV series.
June 11, 2010
It couldn't have been easy making a movie with less plot, character development and dramatic credibility than an episode of a campy '80s TV series.
June 11, 2010
The Hollywood suits figure you'll overlook a movie's faults as long as the action has juice. Isn't it great when a plan comes together?
June 11, 2010
The A-Team is reasonably good fun. If you're a 12-year-old boy riding an intense Cherry Pepsi buzz and totally devoted to destroying some brain cells, that is.
June 11, 2010
Rent The Losers if you want a cheesy action movie. Wait for The Expendables if you want a gritty, pumped-up one. And mark this A-Team strictly C-grade.
