So if you’ll recall, I was pretty generous in my review of The A-Team. After rewatching parts of it last night, however, I think I wasn’t generous enough.

On a second viewing (with my baby daughter in another country, and thus not waking up every twenty minutes to compel me to pause the film), I found that I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the first time. The action sequences, which I initially thought became tamer after the high bar set in the opening minutes, seemed more charged and dramatically compelling this time around.
