THE A-TEAM (2010)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Finally caught The A-Team and it’s GOOD! Lots of action, guns and explosives-good.

It’s about a group of soldiers who engages in outrageous plans and always manages to achieve their end. The A-Teams comprises of Colonel Hannibal Smith, Faceman, B.A. Baracus and Mad Murdock. One mission to retrieve the counterfeit money plates ends badly when their commanding officer was killed and the plates were stolen by another operative. They were put behind bars until someone from the CIA helps Hannibal bust out of prison, and Hannibal subsequently busts the rest of the team out of their respective prisons. They have to get the plates back while going against their both sides of the law.

Firstly, I think A.M.F. never sounded better as an acronym. The amazing thing is, no matter how crazy Hannibal’s plans are, they work. The lighter side of the team usually revolves around B.A. and Murdock; B.A. does not trust Murdock’s piloting skills and they have to put him under each time they take flight. The funniest and craziest character is definitely Murdock. Flying/steering with a tank is definitely odd, but the final showdown was quite a coup – I didn’t expect the cup trick to be applied to the containers! On a slightly shallow note, Jessica Biel is awesome – even when on a mission, she still tots around in her 3-inch heels and can still hold a gun steady! 3 and a half out of 5 stars.

Colonel John ‘Hannibal’ Smith: Give me an hour, I’m good. Give me a day, I’m great. Give me six months and I’m unbeatable.
