Twentieth Century Fox has just released the first clip from their big screen adaptation of The A-Team and it’s ridiculous. We haven’t seen this much over the top action since the original TV show, which means director Joe Carnahan did his job. The clip includes Faceman (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Rampage Jackson), and Murdock (Sharlto Copley) trying to survive while being shot at in a tank, that happens to be hovering in mid-air! Check it out…
The A-Team is based on the popular 1980’s TV show that centered on a group of falsely accused military men forced to live underground. The characters are Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck, Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, Capt. ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock, and Sgt. Bosco ‘B.A.’ Baracus.
If this scene was from any other movie, we’d throw this clip under the bus because of its sheer outlandishness but it’s The friggin’ A-Team! Not only are the main characters trapped in a tank but they’re trapped in a floating tank that’s sole means of support comes from 3 parachutes. Plus, we’re supposed to believe that Cooper would be able to breathe let alone shout at such a high altitude without losing consciousness?
The A-Team, you gotta love it!
