Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley
Ten years ago, a crack commando unit was sent to prison for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade. Today they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… etc.
We’re as dubious as the next mag of all these ridiculous remakes and reinventions – but then we saw The A-Team trailer. This looks like big dumb fun: Neeson chews stogies and barks orders as Hannibal, Cooper smoulders and cracks wise as The Face and District 9’s Copley is perfect casting as madman Murdock. It’ll be stupid. It’ll be noisy. We can’t wait.
