Release date: June 11
Starring: Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel
En español | Bill's take: "I love it when a plan comes together," grins Neeson, a cigar clenched in his teeth, and you can almost feel him channeling the late, great George Peppard as Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith in the 1980s TV series that inspired this update.
The kids will love the car crashes and exploding planes; older audiences will bask in the film's fiery, nostalgic glow. Besides, series originals Dirk "Faceman" Benedict and Dwight "Howling Mad" Schultz make cameo appearances. What, Mr. T was having a bad hair day?
