Following the production of the film last year was highly anticipated on my part. Its been one of those movies I have hope to see, and here we are writing the review. Thank you to Warner Bros. Philippines, who locally distributes this 20th Century Fox film. It was an awesome experience to see this during the press screening night and here's my review...

If your not a fan... Its also for everyone.

The TV series was nostalgic and this re-imagination of the original stay true to its back story how they came to be, but with a modern take. The timing was right for the TV series to get a fresh look and what a way to have it seen the movie after almost 25 years.

If your not familiar with the TV series, and wanting to see the original I suggest you see this one. This movie stays true to its origins and the characters. Though its been a long time since I last saw a rerun in one of the cable channels it takes you back to those best era namely the 80s.

Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith just hit his role the late great George Pepard which he made it more memorable to us. Bradley Cooper brings us the character that Dirk Benedict portrayed in the original namely Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck. Though I haven't seen District 9 and how Sharlto Copley played out in that movie. To compare him to Dwight Schultz he's more than just plain crazy as literal insane as Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock. The last man to round up the quartet is none other than UFC's Quentin "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt. Bosco Albert B.A. "Bad Attitude" Baracus. the character which made Mr. T a household name, who made the lines "I Pity The Fool!" and squeaks to say "I Ain't Gettin' In No Plane!" Plus Jessica Biel rounds up the cast.

I can recall the old Galoob six inch toys and owning a B.A. Baracus action figure. These days the modern toys are now released by Jazwares, and the movie won't have without the iconic van. The GMC Vandura which makes its appearance in the film too.

Not to give up the spoilers this one gives us the beginnings, and how these soldier of fortune came to be the Alpha Team we know for us nostalgia fans.

The Verdict

Most highly recommended to everyone from nostalgia fans of the original 80s TV series to those, who haven't seen how cool the 80s was this is the movie for you. For those who are aching for some action I'm this is one pop corn movie that mix the drama, comedy, and some nasty action. 10/10 res stripes all the way for a good film.

One more tip before you head out to your nearest cinema. Make sure you catch and finish the end credits. I pity the fool who doesn't.
