The A-Team (2010)

Directed by Joe Carnahan

Starring: Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley, Jessica Biel

Release Date: June 11, 2010
Set up for a crime they didn't commit, four U.S. Rangers band together to rise from the ashes and catch those responsible. A fun, action-paced adventure that blends comedy, action, and espionage into a rousing two-hour romp.

Adapted from the cult 1980's show of the same name, "The A-Team" contains the origins of the four members meeting in Mexico, getting framed in Iraq, and getting revenge against those that framed them. Director Joe Carnahan does a great job with the stunts (despite using a heavy ammount of CGI in the process). The cast does a great job: Liam Neeson is having a blast as team leader Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, Bradley Cooper delivers a great cocky performance as "Faceman", Sharlto Copley is a hoot as "Howling Mad" Murdock and "Rampage" Jackson is pretty awesome as B.A. Baraccus. The only downside is Patrick Wilson as CIA Agent Lynch gets a tad too over the top at times. A fun, enjoyable action flick.
