TV Show: The A-Team


VIDEO: The A-Team (2010)

In 2010, a great action movie adaptation of a hit 1980s action TV show was panned by critics for a crime it didn’t commit. It promptly went to DVD, where it remained mostly forgotten. Today, still disliked by a majority of major film “critics”, it survives as a movie loved by true fans of action-adventure and comedy. If you never saw it, if you had only heard bad things, and if you didn’t know any better than to blindly trust the critics, maybe you should watch: The Cinema Slob’s review of The A-Team!

“Really, it’s just a flimsy excuse to build an episode around lengthy performances of the greatest hits of Rick James, Isaac Hayes, James Taylor, and Huey Lewis and the News. Take out all the songs, and ‘Heart of Rock and Roll’ is a 12 minute episode, which is exactly what Mendo has made for you!”


The A-Team (2010)

“Last summer saw the release of the big budget adaptation of the ‘80s cheese ball television classic The A-Team. Given the rather underwhelming reception it received at the box office, I think we can safely say there won’t be a sequel, so this is as good a time as any to examine what the filmmakers got right and what they got wrong.”
