B-D Team

 The Verdict:

Fans of the 80's t.v. series "The A-Team" will most definitely love The A-Team movie. Anyone else... well, maybe so.
If you're looking for a mindless, over-the-top plotted action flick, The A-Team is it.
Good guys (The A-Team) are framed by a bad guy and the good guys (The A-Team) prevail in the end.
I admit, as unlikely as the four actors (Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson) seem together, their undeniable chemistry is what drives (and saves) the movie.
Neeson (Batman Begins, Taken) plays "Hannibal", the more patriach of the four, Cooper (The Hangover, All About Steve), is "Faceman" or The Face, whose good looks do more harm than good, Copley (District 9) is the crazy "Howling Mad" Murdock and Jackson (a newbie to acting and a famed mixed martial artist) plays "B.A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus (He does good justice to playing Mr. T who was the original "B.A.") the tough guy who whose only fear is flying.
Biel (I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Next) provides minimal eye candy as The Face's love interest and Wilson (Lakeview Terrace, Hard Candy) is somehow pretty believable as the sarcastic villian.
The A-Team is a take it or leave it popcorn flick at its greatest. But expect fans of the show to tell you differently.
