Face was falling for a foxy girl in a 'broken down' sports car lure planted by MP Colonel Decker, but fortunately Hannibal spotted her in advance, and decides they need some quiet time- by Crystal Lake. Some thieves who found the union payroll armored car empty because of a strike but still get chased -in it- by the local sheriff. While Murdock concentrates on fishing, with a dummy as partner 'to get the bad luck', Face finds himself a lovely Park Ranger- whose post is taken by the fleeing robbers and tells them the best getaway vehicle is the teams van, actually having recognized them; only the bullet proof vest he wore as fishing gear saves him when shot by the one who came with her; meanwhile she escapes and joins the team. So Hannibal gets deliberately captured to join her father at the Rangers post and the crooks' goose gets cooked according the Hannibals planning recipe, but miss Ranger confesses the MPs are also on their way...

The A-Team - Incident at Crystal Lake
9 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The soldiers of fortune just want to have some down time, hoping for some rest and relaxation at a cabin Murdoch had at their disposal. Well, a group of thieves try to rob an armored car during a transit but the money hadn't been transferred to the vehicle that day. So the cops arrive, forcing them to take the van and flee empty handed. Meanwhile Decker is closing in on the A-Team, but will he and his military officers finally ensnare them or once again fail? When the band of robbers take two mountain rangers hostage, one of them will reveal that a black van is available...the A-Team's van! Oh, and the rangers also contact the authorities to inform them of the A-Team's whereabouts... talk about a vacation interrupted!

As fans of the show, you just come to expect fistfights and explosions, car crashes and once again BA taking a knockout blow in order to subdue him so that his boys can get them all in flight due to the tough guy's intense, severe fear of flying. And there's Murdoch goofing off as usual, his shtick this go-around with a fisherman mannequin supposedly improving his chances to catch fish...Face actually understands this wacky theory. Hannibal Don's the disguise of an elderly, senile gas station employee in overalls in order to get Face out of a jam after he pulled over for a pretty motorist with a car not running who actually works for Decker! Face sees chance for romance with the ranger, but the robbers situation complicates matters. Christopher Stone, the deceased husband of horror icon, Dee Wallace, is the leader of the robbers, Judson Scott is one of his guys always squabbling with fellow member (and always itching to shoot somebody) Robert Gray, and their mute muscled heavy Robert Tussier punches out both Face and Murdoch before meeting his match with BA. And Hannibal once again gets to detonate something, this time a tree to cut off access for the robbers not to escape. Face and his inability to avoid difficulty when it comes to an attractive woman is played for laughs. BA begging Hannibal not to blow up his van, complaining about there being no food, and getting annoyed at Murdoch as he always does offer highlight. And there's always a scare or two that threatens to see our heroes cornered and caught. Lance Degault returns as Decker, once again undermined in his attentions to place the A-Team under arrest. And there are the slow motion ground level shots of the heroes flying in the air as they leap into the bad guys as yet another altercation ensues...
