The A-Team Poster - Cannes Film Festival 2010

I rented the movie The A-Team the other day through VUDU, and while I wasn’t overly impressed with it, it was still enjoyable! However, not enjoyable enough to watch a second time. Although, it was enjoyable enough to watch a sequel if one ever pops up.

So, what flaws were in the movie? Well, to be honest; Not many! In fact, the few “Flaws” that exist aren’t even really flaws, just personal tastes. For instance, I didn’t feel the movie had an “A-Team” feel.

I also wasn’t too fond of the cast, although Liam Neeson did manage to surprise me. At first, I scoffed at the idea of Liam playing Hanibal but after watching the movie, it turns out I was wrong, and he does an excellent job portraying the character that George Peppard made famous back in the ’80s.

As far as Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson goes, he did a better B.A. Baracus than Mr. T ever did! As far as I am concerned, B.A. belongs to Quinton.

The rest of the cast though? Not quite so impressive. Bradley Cooper was tolerable as the Faceman, but Sharlto Copley was a horrible Murdock, at least in my opinion.

You know who might have made a good Murdock though? Johnny Depp. I know, it sounds lame, but I think he could probably pull it off, at least better than Sharlto did.

Why Depp you ask? See, Dwight Schultz and Mr. Depp have something in common. Their Eyes. Their eyes are quite similar, and they have that crazy man gleam in them. It’s that gleam that made Schultz a perfect Murdock, and he shares that gleam with Depp.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I urge you to check it out, because while it might not be perfect; It still has an enjoyment factor, coupled with a nostalgia factor.

  1. Depp and Schultz do have the same eyes, although I thought Copley did a fair job. There’s just no replacing the original glorious craziness that was Murdock.
