The 1980s TV hit will be a summer big screen release from Fox.

If you wondered when the adaptations of low-rent TV series into expensive feature films would peak, we can all hope it's already happened with The A-Team. The awful hit TV series of 1980s will be coming to a theater near you (but hopefully not near me.) At least the film should shut up people who chronically complain that feature film versions of TV series never get it right: this looks as bad as the series that inspired it. The teaser trailer opens as a hard-edged action film, but morphs into the kind of cartoon-like, over-the-top stunts that defined the TV series. The only question is why the hell Liam Neeson loaned his presence to this project. It's as cringe-inducing as watching Orson Welles when he was relegated to shilling for a wine company on those TV ads from the 1980s. Click here to view
