An air marshal springs into action during a transatlantic flight after receiving a series of text messages that put his fellow passengers at risk unless the airline transfers $150 million into an off-shore account.
Four American soldiers who are in Iraq are sent on a mission to recover plates for printing 100 dollar bills that were used to print a billion dollars. After doing the job and returning to the base their commanding officer is killed in an explosion and the plates are stolen by another operative. They would be court martialed and sent to different prisons. 6 months later, the leader, Hannibal Smith is visited by a CIA spook who tells him he knows where the man who took the plates is and wants him and his men to recover it. So he helps him escape and he breaks out the others and they go after the plates. But after doing it, they discover that the spook might not be ok. And a military intelligence officer who was involved with one of them is pursuing them. Written by
Director McCready bears a distinct resemblance to General Hunt Stockwell, who appeared in the last season of The A-Team (1983) to assign the Team missions in return for issuing pardons (he kept delaying the pardons however, and the Team finally lost patience and went back on the run again).

When the team frees Murdoch from the psychological clinic in Mannheim, Germany they drive to an airport (probably Coleman Army Airfield). There, the airport vehicle license plates start with FF. This is impossible since FF is used on license plates in the city of Frankfurt/Oder. See more »
I love it when a plan comes together! A Simple, short review.
The A-Team is easily one of the best summer movies made (It knows what it is, and what it isn't - It doesn't try to be anything else), and some of the most fun I've had at the movies in a long time.
On top of some great action sequences that left people cheering, the crowd also laughed non-stop. Bradly Cooper's comedic timing is excellent!
This one is worth checking out. Bring your friends! They did the show justice, and will introduce a younger generation to a great show. Carnahan put together a great movie, which easily could have gone the way of Starsky & Hutch, or Charlies Angels.
