Mr. A's review of ...The A-Team

The Story
After John "Hannibal" Smith rescues his right hand man Templeton "Faceman" Peck with the help of ex Rangers Bosco B.A. Baracus and H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock the foursome embark on a long and successful military career in Iraq. That is until a corrupt team of special ops frame them for stealing a collection of U.S. Treasury plates and the murder of a high ranking general. Knowing that the only way to prove their innocence is to get back the plates, Hannibal and his team make their escapes from their respective prisons and set out to do just that.

The Review
I have almost nothing bad to say about this film, though there are a few things I will touch on as a sort of warning to you before you go and see it. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson makes a great replacement for the iconic Mr. T, however he does mumble his lines a few times throughout the movie. Also, there are also moments that are confusing due to an incredible amount of either background noise or characters trying to talk over each other. The action is incredible, but when the story kicks in the pacing slows down considerably. But honestly, other than that I thought this movie was the greatest thing since raisin bread...and I really like raisin bread.

The Verdict
With over-the-top action and enough humor to carry you through the duller story parts, The A-Team gaurantees some of the most bad-ass 2 hours of your life. I'm actually thinking about going again!

There you go, folks! Stay tuned for my review of The Last Airbender!!!

Jaa mata,
Mr. A
