The A-Team

Corrected entry: When Hannibal and Gen. Russell Morrison are talking, the USA flag badges on their arms are wrong. The stars are on the wrong side: they should be on the left side and are instead on the right.

Correction: The blue field of stars should always be in the highest position of honor. When viewing the flag on a wall, the highest position of honor is the upper left when displayed horizontally, and at the top (upper left) when displayed vertically. When displayed on a "moving object" like a person or vehicle, the highest position of honor is the front, and not the rear; so the field of blue should be displayed to the front. "When worn on the right sleeve, it is considered proper to reverse the design so that the union is at the observer's right to suggest that the flag is flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward."

Corrected entry: In the scene where the reason for the main mission is described, it is said that "Fedayeen thugs have seized what's left of the Iraqi National Mint to run off billions of dollars in unbacked American currency". U.S. currency is a fiat currency system, meaning it is backed by the word of the government to accept it as currency; any falsely printed currency that is identical to official currency would still be "backed" currency in the U.S. (00:23:10)


Correction: You've certainly understood the concept of fiat currency, but apparently not of counterfeiting; if a government wanted to back all currency (real and fake) in circulation, then counterfeiting wouldn't be a problem at all. In fact, it could save a government printing costs! But since a government chooses NOT to print an unlimited amount of money every year, for obvious economic reasons, they specifically wish to control the amount of money in an economy and only wish to "back" the very amount they print and circulate. Therefore, "unbacked currency" as stated by Hannibal simply means money that hasn't been authorized by the USA for circulation through stolen plates and a leftover press.

Corrected entry: When the team is at the "U.S. Air Force Base", you can see CF-18's in the background. Canadian Forces Aircraft. This was filmed at 8 Wing Trenton, Ontario Canada. I watched the filming. And the inside shots of the Hercules were taken inside the CC-130 at the Air Museum in Trenton as well.

Correction: The scene was filmed at 4wing Cold Lake, Alberta using aircraft from 409 and 410sqn. the C-130 was all digital except for the cockpit scenes.

Corrected entry: In the montage at the end, Murdock is misspelled Murdoch on the military forms.

korporal kool

Correction: No, Murdoch is the correct spelling of his name.

Corrected entry: The A Team was headed towards the ground in a tank muzzle first, and yet they are able to drive it out of the lake. This scene is removed from some broadcasts as it makes no sense whatsoever.

Correction: We see the tank hit muzzle first, we don't see how it lands at the bottom.


Corrected entry: The team protects Murdock's head from Lynch's head shot while Lynch believes he is Morrison with a helmet made out of "melted down" Kevlar. Kevlar is a polymer fiber and does not melt.


Correction: They melt ceramic plates.

Corrected entry: On the roof of the hospital in Mexico, Murdock was singing Right Round by Florida while swinging on the helicopter rotor. The song was only released on 2009, whereby the event occured 8 years before American withdrawal from Iraq,which should be around early 2000.


Correction: Incorrect. The song was originally released in 1985 by the UK group, Dead or Alive "You spin me right round (like a record baby)". If you look at the credits for "Right Round" by Flo Rida, you will note that one of the credits lists Pete Burns, who was lead singer of Dead or Alive.


Corrected entry: During the helicopter chase scene, where the A-Team is about to be shot down by heat seeking missiles, Murdock shuts the helicopter's engine off and the rotor blades immediately come to a dead stop. Actually, there is enough momentum in helicopter rotors that they would actually keep spinning even with loss of power. Helicopters are able to make emergency soft landings without power because the still-spinning rotors provide a slow descent. And then when Murdock started the engine again, the rotors were spinning at full-speed in a matter of seconds. With helicopters, it takes a couple of minutes to accomplish this. Also, even if the engine is off, the heat-seeking missiles would have STILL hit the target because the engine wouldn't lose heat that quickly.

Correction: The movie is a work of fun-fiction. The heat-seaking missles were heading on a course to collide with the helicopter, but, with the rotors shut off, the helicopter started to slide back down to Earth thanks to gravity. So, with the position of the helicopter suddenly going 'backwards', the missles would have needed to turn more sharply to hit it. Perhaps they were swinging around to turn back, but collided with each other.

Corrected entry: When carrying out the mission to get the plates, Baracus throws out the driver and is driving the large truck which then enters into the sea. But then miraculously appears inside the container on the back of the lorry which looks to be a massive vault, how could he get in?

Correction: BA can be seen propping a gun against the truck's pedal, leaving the seat and crawling along the top of the container to get in. Clearly it was the plan to lock BA in there so he couldn't protest at Murdock helping them escape.

Craig Thompson

Corrected entry: In the beginning, when the two policemen are beating up Hannibal. The Policeman throws Hannibal's gun into a carton nearby. However when Hannibal removes his handcuffs, the gun appears near his foot.


Correction: Not so. The moment Hannibal removes his cuffs, the camera does short quick edited shots of his movements from getting up from the chair, retrieving the gun, replacing the firing pin and then stepping back into the shadows. Its not meant to be viewed as realtime event of what he did.


Corrected entry: After their adventures in Germany, the team makes their escape via seaplane and stows away on a U. S.-bound cargo ship, telling Lynch that they'll meet him in Los Angeles in two days. It would take more than two days for their ship to cross the Atlantic, go through the Panama Canal, go up the West Coast, and arrive in Los Angeles.

mr. mirage

Correction: This time line is actually quite possible because we never see when they get on the ship. They could have landed on the ship once it was in the Pacific Ocean.

Corrected entry: A C-130 isn't capable of carrying an A1 Abrams tank. It's maximum load is 33t (33000kg), while an A1 Abrams battle tank weighs in at at least 60t (60000kg). And it certainly can't make barrel roles if loaded to it's possible loading capacity.

Correction: It was a sheridan light tank not a M-1 Abrams.
