The A-Team (2010)

Hannibal Smith and Co. are back to, as Roddy Piper once said, “chew bubble gum and kick ass.” Liam Neeson, in one of his more pathetic roles, is Hannibal Smith, and along with his gang of B.A. Baracus (Quentin Jackson), Templeton “Faceman” Peck (Bradley Cooper), and H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock (Sharlto Copley). They are attempting to right their military records after a problem in the Middle East put them all in jail. Their only way to go back to the lives they had is to find and kill the men who destroyed their pasts.

Best Aspects: Acting, graphics and Production. The producer list is what interested me, because the Scott brothers usually produce good films (Tell-Tale, which also had Bradley Cooper in it, Body of Lies, Into the Storm, The Andromeda Strain, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, the list goes on), all of the best producers seem to be doing shit movies now (such as Guillermo del Toro presenting Splice). The acting from Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson was good, though cheesy, but Quentin Jackson proved why he is in the MMA and not in acting, along with the fact that I couldn’t tell if Murdock was British, Australian or Southern. The graphics were pretty freaking good in this movie.

Bottom Line: C+ Not too bad, but not that good.
