THE A-TEAM is an action drama based on the popular TV series, following a group of mercenaries on a mission to clear their names after being convicted of a war crime they did not commit.

Violence

The violence is frequent with plenty of fast-paced fights, chases and explosions. However, the emphasis is on action rather than on injuring people and very few blows are actually shown. There is also very little blood, with one apparently strong bloody moment towards the end of the film quickly revealed to be a trick.

Language

This film contains one use of moderate language, when a character describes himself as 'sweating like a whore in church'. There are also two uses of implied strong language, where it appears that characters are about to say the word 'motherf**ker'. However, they only say the 'mother' part of the word.

The film also contains some mild bad language, including uses of 'asshole', 'hell', 'pissed off', 'bullshit', 'crappy', 'shit' and 'son of a bitch'.

The members of the A-Team are occasionally shown performing acts which would be potentially dangerous if imitated, such as emptying the contents of a bullet onto a barbecue, or placing defibrillator pads onto the running engine of a vehicle. However, these actions do not involve everyday items and would be difficult for viewers to copy.

Hannibal, the leader of the team, is shown smoking a cigar in several scenes, but this is an established part of his character, familiar from the TV series, and is not shown in a manner likely to encourage younger viewers to start smoking.

The distributor chose to remove two uses of strong language, in order to achieve a '12' classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut '15' classification was available.
