I have heard of the series but never actually seen several episodes but since it rings a bell to me whenever I hear of the name A-TEAM. This special band of men, four of them, have been labeled as fugitives by the government but was actually set up. This special team comprises of the chief mastermind  John "Hannibal" Smith, The Chic-magnet, Templeton "Faceman" Peck, The Big dude, B. A. Baracus, and the Crazy but wicked guy, H. M. "Howling Mad" Murdock.
The movie also stared Jessica Biel as Capt. Carissa Sosa as something like their bounty hunter in exchange of the rank she lost in her last mission. Although she looked good in the film, it seemed that her character looks like a lawyer apprehending the culprits. Their locations brings them from the sandy plains of Iraq to Germany and of course, the US mainland where they are considered fugitives.
What I loved about the movie is the integration of different personalities to work as a single team. They always follow a plan, yet there is no Plan B. If you look closely, there are also words of wisdom that one can learn from.The action is also impressive because of the unique ways that no action film have dared to do.
Like me who was not born yet when the series came (the show was cancelled in 1987, so I'm just a baby back then) seeing this movie may not have brought nostalgia into my veins but it injected me what the A-team really is, that it is a great example of what teamwork really means, no one left behind.

Deliberation time kids!
