Review The A-Team in One Sentence

The A-Team's grizzled, tank-flying rogue soldiers couldn’t best Will Smith's kid at the box office, but how’d they fare with the critics? The reviews are in, and they are decidedly not as terrible as you might think! EW’s Owen Gleiberman liked it, calling it “trash so compacted it glows”; so did The Wall Street Journal’s Joe Morgenstern, saying, “If you're a fan of causeless effects, consequence-free causes and digital Dada, let the silly times roll.” On the other hand, the L.A. Times' Kenneth Turan was so aghast he actually wrote the following line: “I pity the fool, as TV star Mr. T might say, who mistakes this for genuine entertainment.” Wow! But who cares what those experienced, knowledgeable, and articulate movie critics think? Let's hear your opinion: give us your best all-encompassing one-sentence A-Team review in the comments below (and do not abuse your semicolons and em-dashes to buy you more words!). Think Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is now an Oscar front-runner? Feel that the quality of Bradley Cooper’s smirking was at an all-time high? Want to use the phrase “I pity the fool” in an even more flippant manner than Kenneth Turan? Review away, and only one period allowed!
