DVD: The A Team, For retail & rental (20th Century Fox)

This week's other TV spin-off is slightly better.

It doesn't try to be anything except noisy, mindless Friday-night fun, and it accomplishes that mission with relish. But it might have been nice if it wasn't quite so noisy and mindless. Thanks to the cartoonish action, frenetic editing and the wall-to-wall CGI, it's even further from reality than the 1980s television series was. Besides, Quinton Jackson doesn't have half of Mr T's muscle or a tenth of his charisma.
