The A-Team

This is an extraordinarily loud and fast moving flick.

These days, it seems Hollywood can't come up with their own ideas and needs to bring back old television shows and put them on the silver screen. Most of these fall flat on their faces and turn out to be dumb. However, if you walk into The A-Team with an open mind, you may walk out with a smile.<{> A group of Iraq War veterans run from U.S. military forces while they try to clear their names after being framed for a crime they didn't commit. The plot isn't anything special, new, or creative but is enough to keep the audience's attention. The same goes for the screenplay which does manage to crack a few decent jokes. However, the good thing is that the film knows that it's just a fun film and doesn't try to be anything it's not.

The casting was done very well. Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper are the two strongest actors featured in the film. Neeson gives a realistic performance and became his character. Cooper delivers dialogue well and does a great job developing on screen relationships with each actor. Aside from Neeson and Cooper, no actors give a performance that takes away from the experience of the film.

When comparing The A-Team to many other action flicks, it stands out as being one of the most visually intense. There is always something happening and rarely stops to allow the viewer to relax his or her nerves. Each extreme explosion that occurs on screen is completely realistic and the sound mixing is phenomenal.

This is the first big action blockbuster to be released for summer of 2010. It's a good way to begin the summer. This is an extraordinarily loud and fast moving flick. Don't expect an Oscar winning film with this, just let your mind go and enjoy one hell of a ride. The A-Team is a fun summer flick that is worth visiting in the theaters.

My Rating = Three and One Half Stars
