A-Team movie review: Critics divided on remake with Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson


The A-Team Movie starring Quinton "Rampage" Jackson comes out today (Friday, June 11) and as expected, not everyone loves the plan that came together.

Movie critics are split pretty much right down the middle regarding the modern adventures of Hannibal, Face, Murdoch and of course, B.A. Baracus.

What you think about the movie as far as entertainment may have a lot to do with your expectations going in.

Lou Lumenick of the New York Post, who looks unfavorably on the television series remake, says "It couldn't have been easy making a movie with less plot, character development and dramatic credibility than an episode of a campy '80s TV series."

Possibly, but there's a flip side to that coin.

Mick LaSalle, who recommends the movie in his column for the San Francisco chronicle, promises "The characters ... are without interest. Their problems are not our problems. But the sheer motion, the spectacle and the flashes of wit take The A-Team out of the realm of garbage. It's fun."

It's the A-Team, and this writer has to believe that any moviegoer willing to part with ten bucks (and that's just for a small popcorn) to see a celluloid remake of a television show more than 20 years old has to know what they're in for.

Any maniacs out there heading to the theater to see what all the fuss is about? If so, be sure to check back in and let us know what you think!
