It was a spur of the moment movie date with Jen and I’m glad we decided to watch The A-Team! I loved it! It was sooo cool! I haven’t watched the original TV series so there’s nothing to compare with on my part.
I believe the movie was well-made though. It really was an action-packed movie with a pinch of romance, comedy & style, I think it was perfect. Actually, to say that the movie was action-packed is an understatement because from the very beginning all the way to the end, it was just nonstop action!!
If you didn’t know, the A-Team is actually based on the popular hit tv show back in the 80’s, same name, same characters and all..
I love the fact that even though the movie was based on the 80s show, it didn’t try to go back to that era, and all of the characters, the plot, and the situations they find themselves in have all been made very modern and up to date.
The A-Team is an elite combat team consisting of 4 individuals with such unique personalities. The leader of the team, Hannibal Smith was played by Liam Neeson. The other members of the A-Team includes Templeton “Face” Peck. Ranger Bosco B.A. Baracus. H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock.
One of the great performances in the movie too is that of H.M. Murdoch who is the pilot for the team. And of course, who can forget the performance of Templeton “Face” Peck who was played by Bradley Cooper, I think his character gave a lot of comedy input into the movie as well. Actually, the whole cast did such a great job in their performances.
I just love how genius their plans are that makes them successful in any missions they undertake. Maybe that’s why they are called A-Team. A as in Grade A, highest score if we’re going to score them. And even though there are just some scenes that are way over the top, such as when the team has to jump out of an exploding airplane mid-flight in a tank, the most important part for me was that the action really never stopped and the movie really entertained.
If you haven’t watched this movie, I suggest you go catch it. Not sure though if it’s still showing in all theaters but there are still a good number of theaters that is still playing The A-Team.
My Rating for The A-Team: 5 out of 5 stars.
