I pity the fool who tries to pay the A-Team with a credit card...

That's an awfully amusing cast photo, and I'm genuinely shocked at Liam Neeson's appearance as he looks more like George Peppard that I would have imagined possible. I was never that into the old show, mainly due to the absolute lack of suspense. See, the bad guys (to my recollection) never murdered anyone and we all knew the A-Team couldn't rack up any homicides as they were already on the run for a bogus murder charge. IE - the show very well couldn't have ended with them clearing their names but then having to answer for any bad guys that had been blown up, shot, thrown out a window, etc during their 'soldier of fortune' years. Speaking of which, would it kill director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking Aces) to actually include a scene where the A-Team actually bills a client for their services? The opening narration specifically states that you could hire Hannibal, Faceman, Murdoc, and Baucaus, but I don't recall them ever actually accepting any payment for saving the proverbial day. And in these economic times, I doubt a group of fugitive soldiers can afford to partake in too much pro-bono heroics.

had low hopes for this, but poster actually looks good. You're right, Neeson is the highlight
