Kaboom. Wait for it, kapow! Yes, that’s right, expect plenty of explosions and gunfights because The A-Team is a testosterone filled shooting gallery from start to finish.
Based off the 1980’s adventure series – the cast of Liam Neeson, Jessica Beil, and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson put together a messy slobber-knocker of an action film. Complete with quirky characters, gun violence, and shaky fight scenes.
A-Team jumps all over the globe
Escapism – perhaps – but audiences might be lost in the topsy-turvy plot that follows these soldiers of fortune who hunt down the bad guys, and get chased down by even more bad guys.
It gets confusing at times, but audiences will be distracted once the rocket launchers are fired – and the many explosions follow. The team jumps from one corner of the globe, to another – all trying to track down the bad guy who stole plates from the United States treasury.
It really doesn’t make much sense, and there are probably endless holes in the plot, but it’s best to switch the brain off and enjoy the mindless violence.
Not without its funny moments, the actors do justice to their eccentric characters, Jackson making for a pretty decent Mr.T. You can’t have a violent movie without laughter, can you now?
The film is fast paced from start to end, and holds many references from the original series. It’s a summer action movie, and doesn’t retain much after that. It’s weak plot draws on for two hours, but the cast keeps shooting more and more bullets to hold everyone’s attention.
Don’t expect too much – as this film is silly, immature, and downright obnoxious. But it is what it is, and for a film over-saturated with cowboy gun slinging, it still manages to be somewhat entertaining.
