What I Can Tell You:
I never watched the original A-Team with Mr. T and Dirk Benedict but my grandparents watched it weekly and any repeat that aired. I was excited to see The A Team mostly because be honest...Bradley Cooper is in it.  I am also a Liam Neeson fan so, I thought why not!?

As a movie it was good. I thought there was some great action and as someone who doesn't know the story behind the original A-Team, the movie stood alone.

This ragtag group of Army Rangers lead by Liam's character Hannibal are the Army's answer to superheros. They can pull off anything and do. If they weren't working for the Army, they would be dangerous criminals.

There is a ton of explosions, car chases, funny lines, and fun. And, if this is not enough to make you want to watch it....there is plenty of Bradley Cooper minus his shirt or even with his shirt!
Really fun movie. If you have a guy who loves action but you just can't sit through another shoot up/explosion movie. I promise you will be able to sit through this one.

Amazon is running a special on The A-Team (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] pick it up today for $12.99!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this DVD from 20th Century Fox for my honest opinion.
