Hollywood decided to reboot the 1980s television show "The A-Team" as a film and the results were very mixed, to say the least. Critics gave it lukewarm reviews and apparently audiences did as well, as it struggled in its first few weeks of release at the box office.

Casting for the film was not good. The cast of the remake is led by Liam Neeson, who plays "Hannibal" well enough. However, Bradley Cooper as "Faceman" was not the best idea. Quinton Jackson, who was amusing, did his best as "B.A." and probably as close to the character as anyone other reboot actor could, but it would be hard for anyone to play the role the way Mr. T did, as he was so unique in the part. Sharlto Copley was passable as "Murdock." He didn't do a bad job at all. Dude got a double shot of the crazy.

The storyline of the film, which is stealing money pressing plates, is not original, as it has been used in a number of films, such as "Rush Hour 2." This movie was rife with unoriginality in stunts and the dialog. "A-Team" gets off to a slow and strange start, as the group comes together in a weird way that is at odds with the original series, leaving viewers confused.
