Four American soldiers who are in Iraq are sent on a mission to recover plates for printing 100 dollar bills that were used to print a billion dollars. After doing the job and returning to the base their commanding officer is killed in an explosion and the plates are stolen by another operative. They would be court martialed and sent to different prisons. 6 months later, the leader, Hannibal Smith is visited by a CIA spook who tells him he knows where the man who took the plates is and wants him and his men to recover it. So he helps him escape and he breaks out the others and they go after the plates. But after doing it, they discover that the spook might not be ok. And a military intelligence officer who was involved with one of them is pursuing them. Written by
When Hannibal jumps out of the van to rescue Face in Mexico, he is carrying a Ruger Mini-14/F30GB semi-automatic rifle, which was carried the A-Team in the original series. See more »
During the initial helicopter chase sequence, Murdock shuts down the turbine of his UH-1 in order to evade heat seeking missiles. While this would not be a practical evasion technique, it would also not "stop" the rotor blades as depicted in the film. The rotors would retain their inertia and continue to rotate. As well, a turbine shutdown at a very low altitude would require a forced auto-rotation landing, and would likely not be recoverable. Finally, the engine starter is on the collective handle, not on the overhead panels as depicted. See more »
The film's theatrical release features two out-of-place scenes after the closing credits, featuring two of the original The A-Team (1983): at Penascola, Face gets tips from fellow inmate Milt (played by Dirk Benedict, the original Face); and at Frankfurt, Murdock is analyzed by a German doctor (played by Dwight Schultz, the original Murdock). These scenes were set back in their chronological place in the film's extended edition. See more »
My favourite film of the year, remember the series when I was kid, and thought this was a a great take on the series.
The guy from District 9,Sharlto Copley played Murdoch, was funny as hell, and Face played by Bradley Cooper was perfectly cast. Quinton Jackson was a good choice as BA, had never heard of him till this film) , and thought Liam Neeson was fantastic as Hannibal. I really hope that they will make future A Team films with this same cast, because I thought this film was spot on for A team film.
Funny, full of action, and slick, Definitely will add this to my DVD collection as soon as it comes out
