The A-Team dir. Joe Carnaham (2010) A perfectly serviceable origin story and tribute, albeit somewhat helter-skelter at the start and Hollywood-convoluted in a way the original series never stooped/aspired to. Even though it’s difficult to see new actors in the roles, any criticism stems largely from rose-tinted nostalgia.
The Transporter, Series One (2012-2013) Those who grew up on the A-Team shouldn’t pass judgement but the drive-fight-drive-run-drive-fight-frolic formula really is quite palpable. ‘Never change the deal,’ insists Frank Martin; or more accurately, never change the plot. This reflects how Sisyphus felt for the first twelve days.
