The A-Team


As U.S. forces are preparing to leave Iraq after the war, a team of rowdy Army Rangers led by Colonel “Hannibal” Smith (Liam Neeson) are given a clandestine mission that turns out to be a trap. The big-screen adaptation of the 1983-1987 TV series introduces a new cast that enthusiastically embody the familiar characters; Neeson and Bradley Cooper are particularly satisfying. The movie offers good-natured popcorn entertainment and never turns too dumb or mean-spirited. The action is so unbelievable at times that some scenes, for good and bad, could not have been made outside of a computer.

2010-U.S. 119 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Joe Carnahan. Cast: Liam Neeson (John “Hannibal” Smith), Bradley Cooper (Templeton “Face” Peck), Jessica Biel (Charisa Sosa), Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (Bosco B.A. Baracus), Sharlto Copley (“Howling Mad” Murdock), Patrick Wilson… Gerald McRaney. Cameo: Jon Hamm.

Trivia:Ā Co-produced by Ridley and Tony Scott. Bruce Willis was allegedly considered for the part of Hannibal; Common, Ice Cube and The Game as B.A.; and John Singleton for directing duties. Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz, stars of the TV show, have small cameos. Also available in a 133 min. version.
