The A-Team is about four American soldiers who are sent to Iraq on a mission to recover some 100 dollar bills plates. However, as the mission ended, their commanding officer got murdered and the plates are stolen by another operative group. The four soldiers are then sentenced to prison, and they are looking to clear their names by catching those who framed them.
The A-Team was an action-packed movie that somewhat reminded me of the Charlie Angels films, but with better visual effects, dialogues, and good-looking men. The storyline was quite well-thought out with guaranteed action-filled moments, comedic characters, the necessary plot twists, and just enough time to slot in a love story between two leading characters. Additionally, the visual effects in this film were satisfying with moments that would make the audiences go “Woah!” The dynamics between the four actors who combined to create the team is just nice, without its awkward moments, and create a believable force between them. Overall, I think if you’re an action buff, or you love a testosterone-filled film, or a movie with an espionage feel and a decent plot twist, this is a movie not-to-be-missed.
Rating: 6 ½ out of 10.
