The A-Team

Director Joe Carnahan's big-screen take, co-produced by Tony and Ridley Scott, on the 80s TV series, which was an OTT action-fest that, at the same time, gloried in and poked fun at its tough-guy stars and their adventures.

This time around, a little brasher and more serious than their first incarnation, the team of soldiers comprises the cigar-chomping Col 'Hannibal' Smith (Liam Neeson), the wilfully eccentric Murdock (Sharlto Copely), toned babe-magnet Face (Bradley Cooper) and, of course, BA Baracus (Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson), who famously 'pities the fool', usually with more forceful fisticuffing than is strictly necessary.

Our quartet starts out on the back foot, having been jailed after a black ops mission in Iraq went disastrously wrong.

But, discovering they were framed and that a massive currency counterfeiting operation is afoot, it's time for them to break out of prison and prove their innocence by tracking down the baddies and saving the US dollar. And, of course, blowing up as many objects as possible along the way.

Also featuring Jessica Biel as Face's former flame and Patrick Wilson as the team's CIA handler.
