The whole movie is a diversionary activity. It's trash so compacted it glows.
75
The A-Team is a Joe Carnahan movie, i.e., an experiment in propulsion and personality over substance and story.

Premiere
The actors in The A-Team are all excellent, and they save a movie that routinely defies logic and physics Liam Neeson brings credibility and gravitas to any role he plays, but as "Hannibal" Smith, he swaggers like a paternal Han Solo.
63
It's big, loud, ludicrous and edited into visual incomprehension. But pity the fool who lets that stand in the way of enjoying The A-Team.
63
Until a leaden third act, it IS reasonably entertaining.

Both in name and spirit, The A-Team drags the Eighties into the 21st century, and you might be surprised to find -- if only briefly -- that you've missed them just a little.

Wall Street Journal
If you're looking for logic or finesse, The A-Team can be numbing. If you're looking for good cheer, hold out for egg nog at Christmas. But if you're a fan of causeless effects, consequence-free causes and digital Dada, let the silly times roll.

Feels like the cinematic equivalent of the BP disaster in the gulf: It's a big-screen oil spill, a needless gushing of macho bluster and wild set pieces, and a waste of millions and millions of dollars.
38
There's nothing exciting about this awful, over-the-top reboot.
30
The film seems nearly writer-free. Absolutely no time gets wasted on story, character development or logic.

Big-name star Liam Neeson looks on, trying to add some class to the joint, though even he seems to know it's a losing battle.
