Summary: This is essentially an origin story and beyond. I found it neat how they were able to update the series with a new story that was essentially a prequil. It simultaneously pokes fun at & sorta stays true to the original series. Great action, fun plot, good humor.
Excerpt: I got this flick as a blind buy. I grew up in the 80's and loved the original show, but I had low expectations of the film. I was surprised the action was good and it was a fun summer flick. All the actors fill the roles nicely, I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel.
Summary: When I heard that they were making a movie of The A-Team, I fully expected a Thanksgiving-size turkey. I was never a massive fan of the TV series, which despite the running theme of good guys versus the government always felt like a smug, popular-culture expression of Ronald Reagan's politics.
Summary: I loved the TV show and I fully expected this to be a complete abomination as remakes often are. I was pleasantly surprised. They had to change some of the back story but from the beginning to the very end it was a pleasure to watch.
Summary: The critics have definitely got this one wrong. It's easy to figure out that this movie does not take itself seriously. At all. And in that respect, it is brilliantly executed. It doesn't try to replicate the TV show, but appropriately pays homage to it. Easily an eight out of ten.
Summary: Was a huge fan of the original series and this movie did not disappoint me. Just don't take it seriously. Explosions and oneliners its what its all about. The decent story surprised me a bit. Just a fun movie without trying to be anything else.
Excerpt: Plot: We meet Hannibal (Liam Neeson) who right in the beginning of the movie is already in a sticky situation. But of course that problmen is solved within seconds. After a few more scenes he has his A-Team together. Then we go a bit in the future and they are a battle proven special ops team.
Excerpt: I actually passed up seeing this in the theater due to the lukewarm reviews it received. I was always a fan of the show growing up, although honestly I don't remember much about the original show so going into this movie was basically a fresh start for me.
