According to the insignia on his uniform, General Morrison is the commander of the 8th Infantry Division, also known as the "Pathfinders". However, the real 8th Infantry Division was disbanded in 1992, and so could not have been in Iraq during the film's time frame. However, the choice of using the 8th's insignia may have been a deliberate choice by the filmmakers to disassociate the A-team and the events of the film from reality. See more »
The engraving plates are supposed to date from the 1970s, yet in close-up they are the "large headed" modern design. See more »
I remember watching repeat runs of the 80's TV series this movie is based on. Love it as a kid and then as a teenager. This movie version is such a blast from the past.
It's fun, silly and out of this world. Much more entertaining that Mission Impossible or other team-based movies of recent years. Carnahan and his crew have done a top notch job in delivering this baby to us. The casting and acting were terrific, the chemistry between the characters is half of the fun, and I'm glad they decided to approach this movie from a tongue-in-cheek angle. It was the right choice.
A thoroughly engaging and fun romp that stays true to the original series and such a treat for fans!
