** While looking at AC-130 camera footage, [[spoiler:Lynch]] exclaims "It's just like [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call of Duty]]!" Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare featured a section where the player controls the weapons on an AC-130U "Spooky" gunship. The audience sees only a glimpse of what the antagonist is seeing, but it does indeed resemble that section. Also noting that the Gunship's call sign is [[SupremeCommander2 Broadsword]].

* UnwantedAssistance: Face was actually upset Hannibal broke him out, as because he is so charismatic he was living a decent prison life including a tanning booth, a hot female guard for a "companion" and was due for a parole hearing in a week. (Though that dropped the second he realized Hannibal needed him and could get the charges cleared.)

* GenreSavvy: Sosa is this compared to her incredibly GenreBlind lackeys, to the point where she tells them to assume that the A-Team knows more than they do at all times.
** [[spoiler:Lynch is ''just'' Genre Savvy enough to know that he can disrupt whatever plan the team has in the climax by having the DangerouslyGenreSavvy Pike on his side. Not enough to actually ''listen'' to him all the time, however.]]

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: A group of CIA agents grab Pike, handcuff him, and put him in the back of a car. Suddenly one of the agents in the back seat decides to shoot Pike there in the car, much to the surprise of their leader Lynch. However he's so inexperienced that Pike, in a rare AffablyEvil moment, begins walking the agent through how to load and prepare his gun for use. ''Then'' the agent starts fiddling with a HollywoodSilencer, trying to put it on the wrong way, (and while the gun is pointing at himself) and insisting on calling it a silencer rather than a suppressor, despite Pike's attempts to correct him on the terminology. Then he lines up to shoot Pike in such a way that if his hand so much as twitches he'll be more likely to kill the agent on the other side of Pike instead. At that point Pike gets so exasperated that he takes the gun away from the agent, (he can do it because they [[HandyCuffs handcuffed him wrong]]) states that "it would be embarrassing to get killed by that guy" and hands the gun over to the other agent in the hopes that the second agent will be more competent and allow him to die with some dignity. Amazingly, the other guy manages to top the first by answering his cell phone while he's holding the gun, and winds up holding the phone to one side of his face while pressing the loaded, ready to fire gun against the other side. At this point even Lynch, who is constantly criticized for being a desk jockey with little to no real world experience, looks seriously disturbed by the morons on his team. This is all going on in a moving vehicle too, adding to the likelihood of an IJustShotMarvinInTheFace moment.
-->'''Pike:''' You've handled a gun like that before? And you're still alive? That's amazing to me.

John "Hannibal" Smith]] (Creator/LiamNeeson) is the leader, the Man with the Plan. Templeton "Face" Peck (Creator/BradleyCooper) is the [[TheCasanova charmer]], point man and [[TheLancer has been with Hannibal longer than the rest]]. Bosch "B.A." Barracus (Quinton Jackson) is the [[GeniusBruiser machine savvy]] [[ScaryBlackMan bruiser]] of the team. And "Howling Mad" Murdock (Sharlto Copley) is their (possibly [[CrazyAwesome insane]]) AcePilot.

The film adaptation of ''Series/TheATeam'' series, written and directed by Creator/JoeCarnahan and released in 2010. Follows the RagTagBunchOfMisfits from their roots when they come together pulling off a mission against a drug lord in Mexico. They become a legendary "crack commando team" running operations that regular military teams can't do. [[ColonelBadass Col. Hannibal Smith]] is the leader, the Man with the Plan. Face is the [[TheCasanova charmer]], point man and [[TheLancer has been with Hannibal longer than the rest]]. B.A. Barracus is the [[GeniusBruiser machine savvy]] [[ScaryBlackMan bruiser]] of the team. And "Howling Mad" Murdock is their (possibly [[CrazyAwesome insane]]) AcePilot.

Eight years, and "80 successful missions", later, a complicated series of events put them in a very delicate operation to recover U.S. minting plates and several million dollars printed by them. Upon a successful completion, their commanding officer General Morrison is killed by a car bomb and the plates stolen, along with the money being torched.

Because of how classified the mission was, Morrison was the only one who could verify their story and they effectively look like bank robbers and conspirators with a rival mercenary group. They are [[CourtMartialed charged with war crimes]], stripped of their rank and sent to prison. But even that isn't enough to stop them, as six months later they break out of prison with the help of a {{CIA}} operative and set out to clear their name. This involves tracking down the location of the plates, the PMC leader Pike who framed them, plenty of collateral damage and the ATeamMontage.

* ThreeDMovie: Murdock gets to watch one, along with the other inhabitants of the psych ward he's in. [[spoiler:That 3D is really damn realistic, what with the Humvee smashing through the wall and dragging in Murdock. The 3-D glasses also make it look like they're really being shot at.]]
