Action adventure.

2010. 117 min.

With Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Director: Joe Carnahan.


Rating: 3/5

IF YOU were a fan of the hit ’80s action TV series The A-Team you’ll love this fast and furious movie version even more. It tells how the guys met and became a team – before getting themselves into all sorts of trouble.

Smith (Neeson), Peck (Cooper), Baracus (Jackson) and Murdock (Copley) are the most effective operatives in the US military. But when they’re betrayed by a military bigwig and framed for a crime they didn’t commit they’re each sent to a different prison.

To clear their names they have to escape and embark on their toughest mission yet .

Local boy Copley is the most convincing actor here and shows he’s definite star material and not at all fazed by the presence of Hollywood big names such as Neeson and Cooper. A must-see for action junkies.

Bonus: extended version, commentary.
