The A-Team is definitely the kick-ass summer popcorn movie of 2010. And for it's purpose, it's loud, dumb and SO much fun!
A team of US Rangers is framed for the muder of their commander and the theft of money printing plates and they break out of prison to clear their names and find those responsible.
Something even close to a real plot is of course nowhere to be found, but The A-Team falls comfotably under the "fuck you critics"-lable anyway and luckily so because films like this are just as valuable as artsy French films from the 70's. Why? Because sometimes people just love and need to be entertained. They want to walk into a theater and for two hours forget the fucking mess they call their lives and just laugh and be thrilled that at least in movies the bad guys get what's coming to them. Neeson, Cooper, Jackson and Copley all enjoy their hero roles and are clearly having fun and Carnahan (Narc, Smokin' Aces) is at ease directing adrenalin fuelled destruction. Perfect marriage of talent, execution and understanding of the genre.
The A-Team on puhdasta kesäviihdettä parhaimmillaan. Kieli on pysyvästi ja tukevasti poskessa alusta loppuun ja hauskaa on. Tosikoiden ja "intellektuellien" snobien *ysk* Tapani Maskula *ysk* kannattaa pysyä kaukana, mutta toisaalta kukapa heidän mielipiteitään tällaisista leffoista haluaisikaan kuunnella?
