Mr. T not a fan of the new A-Team movie

06.09.2010

UPDATE - Mr. T, as it turns out, has not seen THE A-TEAM and certainly did not say any of the quotes below. Turns out someone just made that shit up (which seems highly unethical at best). Whether Mr. T does like sex and violence remains to be seen. Read the statement from Mr. T's representative here.

Mr. T has seen the new A-TEAM movie and apparently pities the poor fools who are going to sit in the audience when it hits theaters this Friday. Mr. T wasn't a fan of the film at all but instead of getting wrapped up in the acting, directing or writing, T aims his criticism at an unlikely target: the violence. Says T, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex." OK now get to the reasons why the film wasn't good. "It was too graphic for me." Oh. Those were the reasons why T didn't like the film.

Turns out that despite his macho demeanor Mr. T is an old softy who isn't down with sex and violence. "When we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore." As a guy who runs a site who ran a video yesterday with a guy ripping the head off another guy and topless photos of Lindsay Lohan, I'm not one to talk about our desensitization toward sex and violence. But this is all Mr. T's prerogative as I'm sure there are a few people out there who will love A-TEAM precisely because of the sex and violence.

Extra Tidbit: Maybe in Mr. T's version of THE A-TEAM, he throws all the bad guys in the water.

Plenty of Sex?

What film was he watching? I've seen the new A-Team and there is no sex or graphic violence. I think someone is a little sour because he was not involved! People a tip, stay after the credits.

Mr. T is talking out of his ass

If he honestly thought that the updated big screen version of a violent TV show (and while there was no bloodshed or such, it was still quite violent) would somehow be less violent, he's a deluded madman. Not liking it for that reason is clear horseshit.

If he didn't like because the pacing was off, or it had bad acting, or something, ok, that's fine by me. But for the reasons he's currently stating, he sounds like a dumbass.

Anyone listening to him and choosing to not see this movie

You tell 'em, Mr. T

Mr. T sure has a point there. 20+ years ago, it was more about having fun. Now everything has to be so fucking overly serious.

I can understand this. A-Team was a show that was probably very near and dear to Mr. T, and this new one is (not surprisingly) not true to the spirit of its source. Of course, that wouldn't sell these days. In any case, I'm not seeing this film.

A parachuting tank is completely realistic compared with what was on the show.

I understand why he would be angry

If you have an attachment to the show because you were a fan or starred in it, changing the material into something less family-friendly is a pretty big deal. Personnally, I don't care either way.

You can't be serious?

He doesn't like the film because it's too violent and has too much sex?

I like that Mr. T is such a good guy. I wouldn't pay to see this movie anyway, but all the more reason knowing that T doesn't give it his blessing.

T has spoken. I will not see the movie, regardless of his reasoning.
