Action/Adventure, Comedy

Those looking to wax nostalgiac for Reagan-era action-adventure TV will be sorely disappointed with this ode to nonsensical violence. Director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking Aces) and a bevy of screenwriters echew original plots and characters for amped-up bloodlust. Dominated by a series of interminable and visually incomprehensible helicopter chases, Mexican drug-lord busts and highly sexualized encounters with a bombshell military captain (Jessica Biel), the new A-Team members (Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton Jackson and Sharlto Copley) fail to exude the self-mocking charm of the original cast and drown in a stew of disposable action-flick ingredients.
