Box Office - 06/10/2010 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "A surprisingly satisfying big screen adaptation of the '80s TV phenomenon, THE A-TEAM provides action fans with a great excuse to hit theatres."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/24/2010
"Liam Neeson, as the jaunty, cigar-chomping A-Team leader Hannibal Smith, has reinvented himself as an action star, and he's a natural at it..." -- Grade: B+
Premiere - 06/11/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "The actors in THE A-TEAM are all excellent....Liam Neeson brings credibility and gravitas to any role he plays, but as 'Hannibal' Smith, he swaggers like a paternal Han Solo."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2010
"[T]he tone's still optimistic and straightforward: no one here is taking themselves too seriously....THE A-TEAM is fairly brisk..."
Total Film - 01/01/2011 3 stars out of 5 -- "Cleaving close to their small-screen counterparts, the four leads approach the testosterone-rinsed mayhem with charm and brio."
1980s TV action gets a reboot with this new version of THE A-TEAM, which shifts the Vietnam vet backstory to a group of Iraq War vets who become mercenaries for hire. Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (Liam Neeson), Templeton "Face" Peck (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Quinton "Rampage" Jackson), and H.M. "Howlin' Mad" Murdock (Sharlto Copley) are a group of former Special Forces operatives who have been fighting the good fight for eight years when they're sentenced to military prison for a crime they didn't commit. Breaking out with relative ease, they embark on a treacherous quest to clear their names while being hunted across the globe by Charisa Sosa (Jessica Biel), a high-ranking military officer and one of Face's many former lovers. Meanwhile, mysterious CIA operative Lynch (Patrick Wilson) offers tips that help point the federal fugitives in the right direction, which seems to lead straight to former military contractor Pike (Brian Bloom), who may have been responsible for setting them up in the first place. Just when it seems that the A-Team has all the evidence needed to prove their innocence, however, they discover that their latest mission is just getting started.
