$12 Well-Spent

That is what you will be saying as you walk out of the theater after watching The A-Team. This action flick based on the TV series with the same name is a complete package: interesting plot, witty dialogues, excellent action sequences, and a little bit of romance. It is by far one of the best action flicks I have ever seen. It reminded me of the Mission Impossible films, which I absolutely loved.

The roles of Hannibal, Face, B.A., and Murdock, the four Army officials that make up the A-Team, are very well-portrayed by Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, and Sharlto Copley. I became a Neeson fan after watching him in the 2008 thriller, Taken (if you have not seen it yet, go rent the DVD). His portrayal of Hannibal is no exception to his exemplary acting skills. Cooper looks as HOT as ever and has remarkable on-screen chemistry with Jessica Biel, who plays the role of Captain Charisa Sosa and Face's love interest. You will not even hate the main villain, CIA Agent Lynch, because Patrick Wilson is just so good-looking AND a fine actor.

Hats off to Director Joe Carnahan for making an outstanding film. The screenplay was very well-written by Joe Carnahan, Brian Bloom (who also plays one of the villains - Pike in the film), and Skip Woods.

Girls, go watch the film for Bradley Cooper - do you need any other reason? Guys will wanna watch it for Jessica Biel. If you don't like either of them (what is wrong with you!?), I still highly recommend this excellent action flick as you will not regret it. WARNING: For those who start feeling dizzy due to too much simulation, some of the camera movements are shaky but hopefully you will still be able to enjoy the movie.

Do NOT wait for the DVD to come out. Go spend $12 as every penny spent is worth it. Wanna know the story - watch the trailer or even better, go watch the movie!
