The A-Team

Fans of the 1980s TV show “The A–Team” should be largely pleased with this updated telling Colonel Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) and his band of crazy U.S. Rangers. The movie lays out the entire mythology of the characters, from how they met to how they were framed and how they ultimately are allowed to try and clear their names.

ClearPlay In Action!

Cruder, louder and bigger than the TV series, The A–Team received its PG–13 rating for “intense sequences of action and violence throughout, language and smoking. ClearPlay takes out some innuendo and allusions to lovemaking, as well as a little more than 100 instances of profanity, about half of them mild. But The A–Team is about violent action, and though ClearPlay cleans up the most violent scenes, you’ll still probably want to limit viewing to audience members who can handle it.

What grade should this Team receive?…

When it comes to appealing casts and fun, elaborate action, it’s hard to beat The A–Team. The cast, fleshed out by Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Sharlto Copley and Gerald McRaney, is light, freewheeling and perfect for this type of movie. It’s like watching The Expendables and The Losers if those movies had been given twice the budget and half the believability. All in all, I pity the fool who doesn’t enjoy The A–Team.
