13+

i think this is a fun, interesting action-flick which has adated from a classic series of the 80's.

Amazing movie for teen-ish age group!

I WATCHED THE EXTENDED VERSION ON DVD. First off, do not watch the extended version with little kids in the room. The first 10 minutes dropped so many F-bombs it wasn't even funny. The violence is a lot but it's very enjoyable and makes for a great movie. One character is 'mental' basically but he makes the movie so much more fun to watch. Not in a rude way, but just because he's humorous.

entertaining watch, average amount of violence

There is exactly the expected amount of violence you would expect from a 12+ film of this genre; if a child has seen other 12+ films, they will be fine with this one too.

"The A-Team" - Parental and Artistic Review.

Sexual Content: Ever the ladies' man, Face makes out with several women—at least one of them a complete stranger—and he's caught in an adulterous relationship. A very attractive assistant is facetiously said to have been hired for her "great personality." Sosa and Face share a sensually violent moment in a photo booth. Later they kiss passionately. At least one woman is briefly shown wearing revealing clothes. A pair of panties is seen on Face's prison bed after a conjugal visit. 4.8 out of 10. Violent/Gory Content: Scores of people are brutally punched, kicked, shot or shot at, held at gunpoint, pummeled and/or hit over the head. Helicopters, fighter jets and small arms let loose what must be hundreds of thousands of bullets and missiles. Multiple aircraft and military vehicles are shot down and/or crash, causing Armageddon-level explosions. A ship, a dock and countless shipping containers detonate and crumple into a massive fireball. Buildings explode into infernos after being bombed. The A-Team's plane gets shot down at 20,000 feet, so they "fly" a military tank (which was in the plane's hold) to safety instead, maneuvering its parachutes and firing its machine guns to "steer" into a lake. A man runs into traffic, causing a head-on collision. Vehicles crash through walls or other structures. Gasoline is used to start fires. Several people are shot pointblank, one in the head (two of them are protected by Kevlar, but we don't know that until after the violent assaults). A noose is placed around Face's neck. Later he latches onto a moving vehicle through a manhole, catching a dangerous ride. B.A. escapes a prison van by "arranging" for another vehicle to drag him away while he's sliding on a blown-off door. He also "skies" down a building, eventually falling and hitting a roof—hard. A man is thrown out of a skyscraper window, freefalling until he's caught by a parachute and a helicopter. Threatening him, Hannibal shoots just inches away from an injured man's head. A crowd is gassed. Men rough up a woman. We see close-ups of a wound or two. Murdock tries to jumpstart an ambulance with a defibrillator—and gets mightily zapped. Murdock's insane piloting knocks B.A. out of a chopper (He dangles by his fingertips). A C-130 and an SUV play chicken on a runway. Murdock intentionally sets Face's shirt on fire with a blowtorch. Electroshock therapy is shown. Hannibal regains consciousness in a crematorium vault, just as the furnace ignites. He escapes only mildly singed, but it's still an intense sequence. 6.7 out of 10. Profanity: At least 2 incomplete "f" words (both used with "mother") and 26 "s" words. Other words include at least 29 "hells," 11 "asses" (3 used with "hole," including 2 in subtitles), 7 "damns," 4 uses of "piss," 2 uses of "bitch," 1 "crap" and 1 "S.O.B." 3 middle fingers are used as well. Religious exclamations and profanities include at least: 5 uses of "Goddamn," 3 of "Jesus," 2 uses each of "God" and "Jesus Christ," and 1 use each of "For the love of God," "For God's sake," "Oh, my God" and "Swear to God." 5.9 out of 10. Substance Use: Hannibal (of course) smokes stogies. Beer and hard liquor show up whenever the team is relaxing or, at least, not directly in the line of fire. There are toasts made before and after a mission. Face reminisces about drinking cheap cabernet with Sosa and says that they were also "doing something else." The team drugs B.A. several times to get him on airplanes peacefully (he hates flying). Hannibal ingests a carefully prepared drug cocktail to make himself appear dead. Antifreeze is said to be used as marinade. 6.2 out of 10. Conclusion: "The A-Team," while not as enjoyable as its TV counterpart, is still a great action film. It has amazing visual effects, a mostly decent script and funny characters. I recommend this film and I give it 7 out of 10.

Violence- 4 (Lots and Lots and Lots of explosions and action violence) Language- 4 (Many uses of s**t and two uses of f**k)

Fair enough.

My rating: PG-13 for intense action violence and language. Violence: 3.5/5 - Not as frequent as expected, but pretty explosive, with a bloody ending. Language: 3.5/5 - At least two incomplete instances of "motherf---er"; aside from that, the language is frequent, but doesn't get stronger than "s--t", "a-s", or "b--ch".
