Well I think a sequel could be better with Jon Hamm as the villian. But I dono movie did not feel like The A-Team to me.

^I would have loved a sequel with Hamm as the villain, would have been great, and personally speaking I thought the movie captured the show perfectly.

Saw this tonight, had some flaws but was quite enjoyable, mainly because of Guy Pearce. The main flaws were some effects, notably at the start, the movie was very predictable and also the action scene's werent all that memorable, not one really stood out, there were also some logic lapses in space.

But, Guy Pearce was superb in his role, really brought the character to life with his wit and sarcasm and he convinced in the action scene's as well. The story was decent they just didnt really do enough with it, the villains were a little too cliche as well, there was the odd twist, but I felt there should have been more. Maggie Grace was hot and quite decent in her role as well, but this is nothing more than a switch your brain off movie, if you like those, you may like this.

6.5/10.

I saw this. I mean I didnt expect this to be that good, but if your gonna say "F*** the script. Let's just make a cool action movie" you have to put in some good action. Pearce was great, but they really shouldve put some good action in there.

kind of a disappointing film. pearce was great though.

too predictable and the story was just idiotic at times. that motorcycle chase at the start was embarrassing...looked worse than most video games.

I would have liked more emphasis put on the two brothers in the prison, that seemed like a really interesting dynamic that could have made for some great characterization.

This was a good 90s feel action movie. I buy it on DVD one day. One question. Was he the only man smoking cigarettes still? He was called a relic. No one smokes cigarettes anymore.

This reminded me of Die Hard and Escape From New York but wasn't as good as either of those movies.

I loved this movie. It was a ton of fun. Guy was awesome, the action was good enough, and there was a lot of it.

~Gu3ree~ Superman doesn't manage to save 10,000 people. He doesn't come out as a big hero in the movie. he's just pissed at General Zod. He isn't necessarily concerned about the people.

Some men just want to watch the DCCU burn.
