Blu-Ray News: The A-Team


DETAILS of the upcoming Blu-ray release of The A-Team have been revealed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

I saw this recently and, despite having seen mediocre reviews, enjoyed it. The movie captures the spirit of the series whilst taking it into the 2010s. The only thing missing was the trademark fighting style of leaping into shot and on top of the bad guys and the vehicle stunts that seemed to happen in every episode. I would have liked a bit more of the main theme used too.

The A-Team will hit stores on Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD on November 29.

Like the TV series of the same name, the story follows the exploits of a group of unlikely friends who, after spending years as one of the military's most trusted Special Forces units, are sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit.

The team are forced to go underground to locate the true culprits and clear their names. Liam Neeson (Taken, Batman Begins), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Yes Man), UFC Champion Quintin "Rampage" Jackson, and Sharlto Copley (District 9) star as the characters we know and love.

The cast also features Jessica Biel (The Illusionist, Powder Blue) as Captain Clarissa Sosa and Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, The Switch) as the shadowy CIA operative, "Lynch".

The Blu-ray Triple Play is an extended, three-disc edition which includes a look at the special effects, an A-Team mash-up, gag reel, and an interactive behind-the-scenes featurette with director Joe Carnahan. Each pack also contains four limited edition character art cards, which by the looks of it you can use to swap the front cover of the packaging.
