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.

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
Medical equipment used in the movie: the scene where the car is being "jump-started" used a PhysioControl LifePak 7 defibrillator, and where the German doctor Dwight Schultz "zapped" Murdock, the device was a real Mecta SR1 ECT, or Electro-Convulsive Therapy, machine that is used to induce a very mild seizure under controlled conditions.

When they capture the Arab there are some "very big" signs in the background at the construction site. One says "Für Fussgänger und Radfahrer gesperr" (Means "closed for pedestrians and cyclists". There are two spelling mistakes though, "gesperr" misses a "t" (gesperrt) and in it's "Fußgänger", not "Fussgänger". Furthermore Signs like the "Betreten der Baustelle verboten"-one ("construction site - no trespassing") in Germany they are not as big as they're displayed there. See more »
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.
