GOOD NIGHT IN: THE A-TEAM (DVD) ***
"Following the ridiculous exploits of John "Hannibal" Smith (Liam Neeson), Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Bradley Cooper), Captain "Howling Mad" Murdock (Sharlto Copley) and Sgt Bosco "B.A." Baracus (Quinton "Rampage" Jackson), soldiers framed for a crime they did not commit. Going dark, the team must utilize their unique talents - and eccentricities - to clear their names and find the real villains.
A fun but frustrating reimagining of Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo's seminal eighties TV series, the first-hour flies by with epic set pieces and some of the most insane stunts ever seen. The second half drags on a little too long but it's still entertaining, as long as you leave your brain at the door and allow yourself to enjoy the ride."
