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
Bradley Cooper became so proficient in weapons training, that he was able to reload his M4 rifle in less than four seconds. This was actually in the film, but was left on the cutting room floor. See more »
At the beginning of the film Face is shown to be a First Lieutenant, and Murdock is shown to be a Captain. Eight years later they are both in the same pay grade as the beginning of the film. This is highly unlikely (even for Special Forces) since promotion for officers in the US Military happen on a very strict time-line. If Face had been promoted to First Lieutenant the day before the movie took place, after eight years he still would have been promoted to Captain (usually two years after promotion to First Lieutenant at the time of filming), and almost ready for promotion to Major (usually six years after promotion to Captain, at the time of filming). Likewise, Murdock should have been a Major after eight years, and possibly a Lieutenant Colonel (usually within six years of promotion to Major, at the time of filming), depending on how much time he had as a Captain at the beginning of the movie. Hannibal, as a Colonel at the beginning of the film, could conceivably be excused, since United States law limits the number of General Officers who can be on active at any given time, however eight years in the same pay grade is still a long time for a Colonel to go without promotion and stay on active duty.

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.
