The A-Team Blu-Ray + Digital Copy Review

The A-Team Blu-Ray + Digital Copy Combo Pack Review



Synopsis: There’s more action, more adventure — and more attitude — in The A-Team Extended Edition, which includes a never-before-seen version of the film with spectacular added footage not shown in theaters!

Buckle up for an adrenaline-fueled thrill ride starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Sharlto Copley. Convicted by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit, a daring team of former Special Forces soldiers must utilize their unique talents to break out of prison and tackle their toughest mission yet. It’s going to take guts, split-second timing and an arsenal of explosive weapons...this is a job for The A-Team.

Review: I grew up watching the A-Team.  I tuned in every week to see my favorite team of mercenaries go to work for the greater good.  I had the action figures and the van...heck, I still do!   I was most interested in seeing Mr T.  I don't think its any secret that Mr. T made that show what it was.  This new movie seems to have forgotten that....

The film is well made with very good quality actors from Liam Neeson (Batman Begins) to Jessica Beil (Blade 3) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover).  The action sequences are great and there is a basic, albeit entertaining plot of the crew being set-up for a crime they didn't commit and having to clear their name against all odds.  The film is great overall, my only issue is with the lack of T.  I know that T is old.  He's old as dirt and I know that, but something in me still wants T.  At least in a cameo.  The guy they got to fill his shoes doesn't hold a candle to the original and the character is really downplayed, which is a shame.  Its still a fun film and looks wonderful in high definition.
