If this was a generic action flick, I would have declared it utter crap. But it was the A-Team, and I just let all the over the top stuff fly because, “It’s the A-Team.” The actor who played B.A. bugged me at first, but towards the end of the movie he sounded and seemed just like MR.T. As much as I think “Liam Neeson is Hannibal” looks good on paper, I couldn’t forget for one second that I was watching Liam Neeson. It made the movie feel somewhat like a sequel to Taken. I hate gratuitous CGI when it’s obvious, so the final scenes at the container ship bumped me a bit. Other than that, Murdock and Face where incredibly funny to watch, and I actually liked a great deal of the over the top action, if only because I accepted that the A-Team was the best the Army Rangers had, and perhaps knew a few tricks that could bend the laws of physics. I’d say this is worthy of being called a successor to the TV series, It’s a shame I’ll never be able to put aside that Liam Nesson is on the screen, but maybe someone less familiar with his work can set that aside and enjoy his performance. Darker And Edgier this is not, there are a few deaths and our A-Team is often times shooting to kill, but the characters themselves are pretty much the same. They just act like an odd-ball team of Army specialist who consider the laws of physics more “guidelines”. I look forward to a sequel and wouldn’t mind them adding the effects specialist that joined the team in the later parts of the show (though, considering he’s considered “The Scrappy” on the television shows page, I might be alone in this thought).
