Well it is the decade of the remake and it still is. This weekend the world was introduced to The A-Team all over again and I completely and totally loved it. The movie definitely brought in some big names and actors that I definitely enjoy. Overall the team was the strongest part of the entire movie and I really liked all of them. Bradley Cooper played Face, Liam Neeson played Hannibal, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson played B.A., and Sharlto Copley played Murdock.
I cannot really find anything that is flawed in this movie even though I did have fun thinking about how certain things worked. Overall, the movie was just a fun time and I couldn’t stop watching. Copley definitely stole the show most of the time he was screen, but I may be a little biased because of loving District 9. I really loved how much fun it looked like all the actors where having during the entire movie. Cooper definitely had a smirk that fits the Face character.
When you add Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel to the mix of talented actors, it definitely makes for a fun ride. I really hope everyone, fans or not, goes to check out this movie just to have a good time. It may not be Shakespeare, but it was a good time at the movie theater and really what more could you ask for?
Well before I just drag you to the theater, let’s get to the SPOILER TALK! The following are my thoughts on The A-Team with spoilers a plenty. What would be even better is if you left your thoughts in our comment section as well.

I don’t claim to be anywhere close to a professional critic; I’m just a guy who loves and has a passion for movies. When it comes to a movie like Death Warrior, it may just be one of the hardest movies I’ve ever tried to review for a couple of different reasons.
This is one of a new line of martial arts films written and produced by Hector Echavarria, a professional kickboxer who got into film making and before long, was breaking box office records in Latin America and being hailed as the next great action star.
The movie tells the story of a top talent in the budding world of Mixed Martial Arts named Reinero (Echavarria), who, right when things are looking very bright, is attacked in the middle of the night. Once the group of intruders have him restrained, the man behind them, Ivan (Nick Mancuso), steps in and inserts something into the stomach of Reinero’s wife, Kira (Tanya Clarke). Ivan explains that what he has just done is placed a capsule or sorts into her stomach, which will make her very sick at first, and then eventually kill her. The only way to avoid this is to take part in Ivan’s evil money-making gambling operation, which involves the best fighters on the planet — many of whom are close friends — battling to the death in order to save the lives of their loved ones while millionaires place massive bets on them.

A new trailer for The A-Team, the big-screen adaptation of the popular 1980s television show, is now online.
Watch it here below.
Joe Carnahan directed the film, which has, what I think, is a spot-on cast for the members of the A-Team: Liam Neeson as team leader John “Hannibal” Smith; Bradley Cooper as Templeton “Face” Peck; Sharlto Copley as “Howling Mad” Murdoch; and former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus.
Now, we all know how wrong these TV to film jumps can be — just take a look at Miami Vice — but judging by the two trailers released for this The A-Team movie, it looks like it’s a faithful adaptation of the TV show. As far as 80s TV shows go, I think The A-Team was top of the crop, so I’m really hoping this movie does it justice.
The very first trailer for Joe Carnahan‘s (Smokin’ Aces) theatrical version of popular TV show The A-Team has found its way online. Only one official image had been released for the this movie so far, which makes this trailer everyone’s first really good look at the movie.
As far as judging books by their cover goes, this is one of those titles we kind of laughed at when hearing it would become a movie. This is because we only know it in its cheesy ’80s form, and the first thing that we think of is Mr. T. Thankfully, The A-Team is a show that is well-suited for an update, and most of it transfers to modern styles with ease. The trailer makes the movie look like a lot of fun. It also makes the movie look like it’s directed by Michael Bay, but it definitely looks like it could be great action movie.

A short time ago, someone was able to snap a photo of the cast of Joe Carnahan‘s (Smokin’ Aces) new TV show adaptation, The A-Team while on the set (Read: Super Geek Peek: New Images From “˜Green Hornet,’ “˜A-Team’ & More!). The image was decent, but it was far away and it looked like they were on break, so it was hard to go nutty over. Now the very first official image of the group together has been released, and you get a really strong idea of how the characters will look and how they’ve modernized some small things.
In the image is Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Wedding Crashers) as Face; former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus; Liam Neeson (Kingdom of Heaven, Taken) as Hannibal; and Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Murdoch.
