Happy Trails Hans: The A-Team

I am an exceptional thief. And I’m also an exceptional reviewer of movie trailers. This time round, I’m putting Hannibal, Face, Murdock and BA through their paces. Yippee-ki-yay.

Trucks. Lots of trucks. And helicopters. This looks good. ‘One year ago…’ – did they lift that line from The Dark Knight trailer? ‘… an elite commando unit was sent to prison for a crime they didn’t commit.’ Oh no, no mention of ‘cops and lawyers’ in this one. Tell me this, do elite commando units ever get sent to prison for crimes they did commit? How does the voiceover guy know they didn’t do it?

I keep feeling like I’m falling asleep during this trailer – my eyes appear to be opening and closing every second. Oh, hang on, it’s just the lazy fade-to-darkness bit that every trailer has these days. ‘If you have a problem…’ Yes, in fact I do, your trailer is hurting my head.

Few more explosions… some lame quips… at least they’re being faithful to the original source material. Now they’re on a plane. Haha! If you look closely behind Murdock you will see that BA is sleeping, must have drank some ‘milk’ before the flight. Now they are in a tank falling from the sky. This is silly. But it could be a good kind of silly.

‘There is no Plan B.’ Oh dear. Let’s hope Plan A is good enough.

VERDICT: I’m going to count to three. There will not be a fourthree stars
