It feels to me like either you are either completely charmed by the A-Team's noisy style and attitude or you aren't. I was not. I liked Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson. Cooper's star is rising. I did not like the noisy, stupid, superficial, look-how-fake-and-animated-that-explosion-is style of action that director Joe Carnahan utilizes. Why can't you just actually blow something up? Even Michael Bay action sequences are better than this. At least they kind of look like they are actually happening.
I'm really not much of a fan of light, silly action comedies, because I find that you need an especially charismatic cast or an unusual style premise to successfully execute those. The A-Team has neither. It was not funny nor was the action even mildly exciting. The plotting...I kind of commend it for getting mildly complicated without getting confusing, but it was mostly standard "accused of a crime they didn't commit" junk. Truly nothing special, and there isn't enough wit or charm to make you forgive the film its stupidities.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose stars Jennifer Carpenter as Emily and Tom Wilkinson as Father Moore. This movie is part courtroom drama and part supernatural thriller, but the combination is balanced. When Emily Rose dies after a failed exorcism performed by Father Moore, he is accused of negligent homicide and ends up in front of the judge. Erin Bruner (Laura Linney defends him. Thrills and chills will make you jump and the religious implications will make you rethink religion entirely.
