4 I LOVE IT WHEN A FILM COMES TOGETHER!SECTION8 | 04/12/2010 | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer The "A" Team movie has been in production limbo for years with the likes of many Director linked to the project including the likes of Ridley and Tony Scott. Now finaly Director Joe Carnahan ( Narc, Smokin' Aces) has managed to dragged it to the big screeen with surprisingly excellent results.With such iconic characters it would be a massive task to find a cast to fit them. Thankfully they all fit their parts like a glove Bradley Cooper excells as Face, Quinton (Rampage) Jackson makes a great B.A, Sharlito Wilson is great as Murdock, but Liam Neeson comes across the slightly weaker as Hannibal, as although he's perfectly cast as the leader of the Team he does lacks the swagger of Peppard ( from the original TV series)Jessica Biel looks fit and pouty and Patrick Wilson is brilliantly smarmy as the C.I.A field agent.The first half of the movie works best leading up to the team being set-up and imprisoned for a crime they did not commit, as that's when the plot makes most sense. This leads to the action packed second half as it flushes out the bad guys and their double/ triple crossing dirty games.The movie works as more a prequel to how the Team became most wanted and sets everything up for the planned sequels. The sense of fun from the TV show is fully intact, as never does the movie take it's self too serious and this time the "A" TEAM shoot straight and shoot to kill!But to all this there is a minus side. The plot in the second half looses a slight grip, and although action packed at times tries to be a bit to clever .The extended version on the Blue Ray adds a bit more to the originally under written role for Jessica Biel but it's more a case of blink and you'll miss them.The "A" TEAM movie manages to be a very entertaining thrill ride, that even if you were too young to remember the TV series should enjoy this muscle bound, testosterone fuelled action movie.With the overall sense of fun and with some of the most over the top action sequences of the year, you find it near impossible to dislike it."
