One thing you gotta say about Joe Carnahan’s “The A-Team”: they sure seem to “get” that the original ’80s action-adventure show was ludicrous to the extreme, but at the same time incredibly, awesomely cool. Here’s a second clip from the movie (via MSN), which takes place directly after the first clip that gets to the heart of the ludicrous and the awesome. We’ve embedded both below for the full effect.
Based on the ’80s action-adventure TV show of the same name, the feature film finds Iraq War veterans Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith (Liam Neeson), Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck (Bradley Cooper), Capt. ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock (Sharlto Copley) and Sgt. Bosco ‘B.A.’ Baracus (Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson) escaping from military custody after being framed for a crime they did not commit. The former soldiers now work as soldiers for fortune, while the Government, led by Faceman’s former lover Lt. Sosa (Jessica Biel) pursues them.
Starring Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel, Sharlto Copley, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Omari Hardwick, David Richmond-Peck, Maury Sterling, and directed by Joe Carnahan.
