Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It all began back in 1983, now it's back again in 2010. In theaters this weekend is 20th Century Fox's action-packed fresh new take on The A-Team, an elite team of US Army Special Forces soldiers who basically just kick tons of ass. In the driver's seat is Joe Carnahan (of Smokin' Aces). The team is made up of: Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Face, Sharlto Copley as Murdock, and Rampage Jackson as B.A. Baracus. So how was the movie? Was there enough of a story to compliment the action? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of The A-Team!
To fuel the fire, I finally saw this movie last night and damn was it a frickin' blast! My faith in director Joe Carnahan has been completely restored. A-Team is really one of those perfectly entertaining non-stop action movies that is a true summer blockbuster. I thought the writing was solid enough to keep things moving and tell a good story, but above all, it was the absolutely absurd yet perfectly conceived action scenes that I loved watching. On top of that, Sharlto Copley as Murdock totally made the movie SO much better. Rampage Jackson was even impressive as Baracus, but Copley truly stole the show in this. Overall I really enjoyed it.
What did you think of The A-Team? A great summer action movie or pointless 80's remake?
