Tampa Bay Times
The A-Team is literally a blast, from the opening credits containing more thrills than the average shoot-'em-up (and more laughs than some comedies), to a climactic orgy of CGI destruction.
Best enjoyed (a la the "Mission: Impossible" franchise) by simply admiring the explosions and silliness without dwelling too much on the skeletal plot.
If you are a stickler for movies that follow the laws of, say, physics, nature and common sense, The A-Team might not be for you. If, on the other hand, you get a kick out of exchanges like this - "Are they trying to shoot down that other drone?" "No. They're trying to fly that tank" - then you're in for a treat.
Chicago Tribune
Until a leaden third act, it IS reasonably entertaining.
Orlando Sentinel
The players embrace this for the lark it is. Their pleasure in going this gonzo spills off the screen.
Both in name and spirit, The A-Team drags the Eighties into the 21st century, and you might be surprised to find -- if only briefly -- that you've missed them just a little.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The diabolical sadist of the team was director Joe Carnahan.
Carnahan stays true to the source material by delivering carnage without consequence (the machine gun-toting bad guys still can't hit a barn from the inside), his convoluted plot and multiple villains may challenge the attention span of the target demographic.
Bored out of my mind during this spectacle, I found my attention wandering to the subject of physics.
The Hollywood Reporter
The film seems nearly writer-free. Absolutely no time gets wasted on story, character development or logic.
