The A-Team is a movie filled with great one liners, a team of memorable characters and big dumb action. It was an absolute blast. I wasn’t expecting some mind boggling masterpiece of a film going into The A-Team. I was expecting non-stop action with great actors like Liam Neeson and Sharlto Copley acting well their parts. Do I consider The A-Team a great movie? No. Did I have a great time watching? Hell yes.
The main reason I went to see The A-Team was because it had Liam Neeson as the leading man. He’s one of my favorite actors and he’s playing an awesome character who leads a specially trained group of misfits and never stops smoking a cigar. It was the type of character you could tell he had fun playing and as a result, I had fun watching him play it.
What made the movie even more entertaining than I originally thought it would be was a fantastic performance by Sharlto Copley. Murdock was such a fun character, my eyes were always on him wondering what he’d do next. Other than that, The A-Team did have a story, but I didn’t really care about that, I was just more excited for the next action scene.
The A-Team was a hell of a time. All the actors were right where they belonged and no part of the movie could be considered slow. I went in expecting a good Liam Neeson performance and got more out of the movie than I could’ve hoped. The A-Team is in no way even close to cinema at its finest or anything, it was just fun.
