The film 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. 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.

* TankGoodness: The team is seen airdropping a tank, which they proceed to ''use in a dog fight'' while it's still parachuting down.
** And it is [[SoCoolItsAwesome awesome]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: In an early scene Agent Lynch, General Morrison, and Hannibal are meeting together and as Lynch leaves Morrison comments on the fact that he's wearing body armor in the command tent, implying that Lynch doesn't trust his own allies. Actually, Lynch's wearing body armor isn't unusual at all; military personnel in an active deployment zone are expected to wear their full gear at all times, even when they're just standing around in the command tent. (After all, one never knows when an attack might arrive.) The fact that Morrison and Smith ''aren't'' wearing their gear is more surprising.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Sosa often wears blouses with the top few buttons undone, which typically shows off her cleavage.

** Furthermore, once Lynch shoots [[spoiler: Murdoch disguised as Morrison]], the seemingly-defeated Hannibal proceeds to get right up and [[DwayneJohnson layeth a smacketh down]] upon Lynch, who'd previously defeated Hannibal in hand-to-hand, though that was AllAccordingToPlan.

* SoftGlass: Averted. When FastRoping, the team shoot out the windows before swinging through them, and when B.A. falls onto a glass ceiling he only cracks it and winces.
* SoftWater: Terminal velocity fall in a tank with only one intact chute? Aim for the water.

winces in pain before shooting his way through it.
* SoftWater: Terminal velocity fall in a tank with only one intact chute? Aim for the water. Though rapid-firing the tank's main gun into the water ''could'' maybe disturb it enough to reduce the surface tension ''a little''...[[RuleOfCool oh what the hell, they're the A-Team!]]

** Creator/SharltoCopley does a fairly admirable job of holding his vaguely Southern accent, but he tends to switch around accents a lot. It does work for the character, though, seeing as he is insane and an omniglot, and a lot of the more noticeable ones ("Oh you gorgeous rustbucket, did you miss your daddy!") were on purpose.

It does work for the character, though, seeing as he is insane and an omniglot, and a lot of the more noticeable ones ("Oh you gorgeous rustbucket, did you miss your daddy!") were on purpose. At one point, Copley unleashes his real-life accent in all its unintelligible glory when Murdock impersonates a South African cameraman.



* ShownTheirWork: The "tank" is, in fact, an M8 Buford mobile gun. Of which six were made before the project was canceled in 1997. It really is designed to be air-dropped.

Of light tank (though it was officially called an "Armored Gun System" as a bureaucratic counter to Congress saying "You already have a tank[[note]] The Buford was meant to fill the Light Tank role for airborne troops and cavalry scouts, with the M1 Abrams as the Main Battle Tank for armored cavalry and heavy armor formations[[/note]]"), of which six were made before the project was canceled in 1997.
