What happens if Oceans Eleven were to become a war movie? Yeah, you got my drift. Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith (Neeson) is the leader of The A-Team, which comprises of four US Army Rangers including him. Lt. Templeton 'Faceman' Pack (Cooper), Cpl. Bosco 'B.A.' Baracus (Jackson) and the mentally retarded but ace pilot Captain Murdock (Copley) complete the pack. The A-Team has successfully carried out various special operations over the years and earned a name for themselves. Now posted in Iraq, they are assigned their latest adventure by CIA agent Lynch (Wilson). The Iraqi's are duplicating the US currency and The A-Team has to get hold of the stolen treasury plates which are being used to manufacture the currency. The mission goes bad, the team is double crossed and they all end up in prison. The team now wants to get out of prison, get a clean record and finish the mission they set out to do, only to realise that they have put themselves in a deeper mess than before. The movie is a sure-shot watch for the pure action buffs, with mass destruction adorning the entire movie. The movie has some decent twists and turns and is not the average 'blow-everything-up-and-have-a-lame-ending' sort of movie. A decent plot and some good performances make it the perfect Sunday afternoon watch. For best results, make sure your accompanied with beer and friends.
Thumbs up: Action-packed and blasting all the way
Thumbs down: A bit more focus on plotting and planning can make it more interesting
