I don't see a problem with them playing lovers either though to be honest I'd be afraid he'd break her given how thin she is.

Maybe it was the fact Zoe looks so skinny

Just watched this tonight.. I loved it!

The perfect fun OTT leave-your-brain-at-the-door action film!

The cast were all great (particularly Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Pine and Idris Elba), and I for one hope there's a sequel. And let's not forget the show-stealing Jason Patric as the bad-guy without one ounce of remorse - he was a top-notch bad guy. Reminded me of the bad guy's you only got in 80's action flicks.

Great stuff!

If DVD sales are decent then a sequel is nearly certain though what remains to be seen is if it will bring back the original cast or do a direct to DVD release with cheaper talent.

Aye, I just looked up the box-office details on IMDb... according to IMDb, it hasn't even made it's budget back in US cinemas. Ouch! Shame it wasn't a bigger hit as it was just honest good fun.

Let's hope DVD and Blu-ray sales do it justice alright.

Thought the "Who want to be a billonaire" (sic) line was hilarious!

I loved it. Plenty of decent action, with a good sense of humour to boot.

Really enjoyed this film, perfect for switching off the brain and just laughing at the flaming cheeseball cheesiness. It has probably outcamped the A-team already

I think the entire comedy of the film is summed up by "In the immortal words of the Tibetian Monks - Don't start nothing, won't be nothing", which tbh, works for me

Quite enjoyed it but couldn't take it too seriously

The mention of Sinn Fein raised a big laugh when I saw it

Fun film, nothing more.

Recently saw this and have to say I loved it. The plot was almost identical to the A-team, and I am sorry to say I think I enjoyed this more. The casting was spot on, especially Chris Evans as Jensen. Its so great to see a techie in a film, who is macho and not a nerd.

My favourite scene was the bit with Jensen in the corridor telling the security guards he can shoot them with his mind.

Here it is here:



Even now it brings a smile to my face.

A group who are past their sell-by date who go on one last hurrah pretending that they're just the same as they were in their youth? No, "Sex And The City" is "The Expendables" for chicks.

This is the A-Team for fans of the A-Team.
