The A-Team hits theatres today and like the TV series, the film follows a group of four war vets framed for crimes they didn't commit as they seek to right the false accusations. Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel and Liam Neeson head the cast and even though Mr. T does not appear in the film, his doppelganger, former UFC champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson does—complete with the shaved mohawk. To be honest, with the exception of a shirtless Cooper, the preview isn't grabbing my interest as much as I had hoped. Even the action sequences seem a bit lackluster. (Side note: anyone else wondering why Cooper is dressed like a GQ model in the promo photo? I watched the show a little as a kid, but I don't remember any character wearing a designer suit.) Plus, no disrespect, but Rampage has some mighty big shoes to fill and watching some of these shots where the film tries to fool you into thinking he is Mr. T seem like a cheap trick. I know it's hard to judge a movie from such a quick preview though, so I'll try to keep an open mind when I see it this weekend.
But take a look and tell me what you think
