Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
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 Murdock is in the hospital in Germany, he receives a package from Hannibal addressed as 'Annabel Smith'. While this alias was never used in the original series, Hannibal being referred to as 'Annabel' was used in an A-Team novel. In the 1980s, writer Charles Heath novelized several episodes and did an original story for the 6th book, "Operation Desert Sun: The Untold Story" set in 1972 after the A-Team returned to Los Angeles. In the book, the Team didn't know Murdock was at the V.A. hospital until he sent Face a postcard asking how 'Aunt Annabel and Uncle Baracus' were. See more »
During a conversation in Lynch's office, a German news broadcast with Chancellor Angela Merkel can be seen on a TV set in the background. The lower third reads "Sonstige allgemeine Nachricht" ("Other general news"), which is a very strange term that would never be used on German TV. 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
