James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
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
Sharlto Copley's mom banned him from watching the TV show, even though he watched it at friend's houses, due to its violent nature. The first thing he did when he got the role of Murdock was phone his mom and told her "that I was just getting her back for not letting me watch the series when I was a kid." See more »
In a common Hollywood mistake, Captain Sosa is demoted to 1st Lieutenant. Military Law does not allow for the demotion of commissioned officers(Lieutenants, Captains, Majors, Colonels, and Generals in the Army, etc.; Ensigns, Lieutenants, Commanders, Captains, and Admirals in the Navy) who remain on active duty. The worst that would typically happen in the events of the film is a Letter of Reprimand (LOR) for Dereliction of Duty which would almost certainly end the officer's chances for promotion, and effectively her career. Using the LOR and having it torn up at the end of the film would have been a more accurate portrayal of military justice and kept the plot in place. (Note: In rare cases such as Colonel Janis Karpinski (USA, Retired, formerly Brigadier General) or Colonel Thomas Fiscus (USAF, Retired, formerly Major General) senior officers guilty of misconduct may be retired in the highest rank in which they served satisfactorily - usually the next lower grade, however such circumstances only affect those officers eligible to retire. A junior officer below retirement age guilty of serious misconduct would simply be separated from the service.) See more »
Capt. Charisa Sosa:
[about Face's team]
I would never tell him this, but they are the best at what they do, and they specialize in the ridiculous.

If you are looking for a light, funny and action packed movie, it doesn't get much better than this. The A-Team is very, very easy too take in, but never boring, has action-scenes that will blow you out of your seat and is stuffed with plenty of damn funny moments.
Also very nice for a change: this action/comedy film doesn't take itself too seriously. Which is quite refreshing if you take a look at all the 'comedy with a message' crap Hollywood produces these days.
The new B.A. (Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson), Murdock (Sharlto Copley), Hannibal (Liam Neeson) and Face (Bradley Cooper) are all great at their roles. Props for Patrick Wilson as the slick C.I.A. agent Lynch and Jessica Biel is lovely as always. Joe Carnahan, who wrote and directed this movie, simply did a great job and gives the audience exactly what it needs.
I'd say it was definitely worth my money.
