The A-Team (2010)

A group of Iraq War veterans looks to clear their name with the U.S. military, who suspect the four men of committing a crime for which they were framed.


Positive:


- mindless action and 2 hours of non-stop fun
- lives up to the 80's series and kinda revives it in a new modern version
- all actors play their roles of our old hereos really well and convincingly, I think most fans of the old series will be satisfied :)


Negative:


- extremely unrealistic (but on the other hand was the series realistic that time?)
- the story gets a bit confusing at times and you don't know what's going on at a few points
- too fast camera & cutting in some action scenes for my taste
- bad CGI used in some scenes (tank scene, helicopter scene etc.)




Conclusion:


All in all a really great revival in my opinion. Maybe this movie will also get some young kids watching the old series, who knows. I can recommend it to everyone who loves to see good mindless action! Someone who is focused on realism, better stay away from it! ;)




My rating:


7/10 (for the sheer entertainmant factor & because it's a nice tribute to old times)

  1. I liked this movie. Some critics don't like it but I think it is important to understand the difficulties in adapting the 30 year old tv show to modern times...

  4. I never actually saw the original A-team, but I've heard about it enough to get interested. Should I watch the movie before I try to look back at the show?

    no, it's not really necessary to see the original series first to enjoy the movie...however some jokes you will only get when you know all the characters a bit. ;)
