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
The 'Buford' tank which is on board the C-130 the A-Team hijacks was a real tank which the United States Army did evaluate in the mid 1990s. Only six prototypes were built and, as of 2004, the intended role of the M-8 'Buford' (armored support for units like the 82nd Airborne) had been largely supplanted by the Stryker MGS/AFV. See more »
When Pike is hit by Hannibal in a Mercedes, he runs out to cut them off; on his way, he shoots through three glass panes. Notice the last pane as he shoots: the pane breaks after about 2 seconds of him opening fire and it is two panes right of the one he's shooting at. See more »
Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith:
It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence.

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.
