The team is successful, but the plates and money are blown up, killing a higher officer, Gen. Morrison. The team is accused of treason and are sent to different holding facilities. Years later, Lynch visit Hannibal in prison and tells him that the plates are being moved in the black market by a Brock Pike.

Best part of story, including ending: It's a modern take on the 80s TV series of the same name.

Best scene in story: When the team is in a military tank that's being dropped from the sky.

Opinion about the main character: Hannibal and his team are like the rugged and gung-ho counterparts of Mission Impossible operatives. They also seem to have more fun in the face of danger.

The review of this Movie prepared by Tina Medina a Level 30 Banded Kingfisher scholar

'The A-Team' is based on the 1980's TV show with the same title. Directed by Joe Carnahan, released on 2010, the characters of this film have the same names, the same style, and the same types. But in this movie we can see new and extreme actions than the TV show. The A-Team members, Iraq veterans, and wrongly framed. But they always break out of prisons and flee.

Hannibal is contacted by CIA operative Lynch (Patrick Wilson), who assigns the A-Team a black ops mission to recover U.S. treasury plates worth of $1 billion in cash. The mission is successful. The A-Team returns to base. The money with the vehicle are destroyed. After six months, Lynch visits Hannibal and tells him that Pike are trying to sell the plates. Hannibal, who has been tracking his enemy Pike on his own for many days, makes a deal with Lynch. He wants a clean record for his team in return. On a dock in Los Angeles, fight occurs between them and Pike dies. The A-Team gets a clean record finally.
Best part of story, including ending: A movie full of action with spy minded genius characters always attracts me. The A-Team is one of them.

Best scene in story: Their plane just been shot and the team made a great effort to fly with a tank. Hannibal gives order, ... degrees north or south and fire, and there tank lands on a lake safely. Really a great and funny scene.

Opinion about the main character: The main character Hannibal is a perfect leader any team on Earth would like to have. His genius mind and instant decision making made him a great character to watch.
