Days away from its release in the US, The A-Team movie has taken a battering from someone in the know - Mr T.

The original (and only) B.A. Baracus, has seen a preview of the forthcoming film and doesn't like it one bit, declaring it "too graphic" and "nothing like the show we turned out every week."

Mr. T (known to his mother as Laurence Tureaud) was offered a cameo role in the film but turned it down; quite rightly too, seeing as that would be a bit like Alec Guinness turning up next to Ewan McGregor in The Phantom Menace.

Read more about Mr T's review of The A-Team movie after the jump (and see a classic video of the man himself giving some 80s fashion advice)... Days away from its release in the US, The A-Team movie has taken a battering from someone in the know - Mr T.

The original (and only) B.A. Baracus, has seen a preview of the forthcoming film and doesn't like it one bit, declaring it "too graphic" and "nothing like the show we turned out every week."

Mr T (known to his mother as Laurence Tureaud) was offered a cameo role in the film but turned it down; quite rightly too, seeing as that would be a bit like Alec Guinness turning up next to Ewan McGregor in The Phantom Menace.

Anyway, T is a bit shocked at the content of the new A-Team which stars the Human Yawn, Liam Neeson, and, frankly, looks a bit rubbish: "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but 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."

To be fair, it was always slightly weird that no-one died in the TV series, considering the amount of shooting that went on. I mean, what on earth were they aiming at?

Perhaps the movie's producers, in their quest to create what looks like a generic knock off action film with A-Team branding, should have consulted Mr.T's 1984 motivational video, Be Somebody... or Be Somebody's Fool in which T tells the kids how to be embrace individuality and not follow the herd. It's the second most coolest thing Mr. T has done and well worth your time (if you're wondering what the coolest thing is, in his pre-fame days as a bodyguard his business card read 'Next to God, there is no greater protector than I').

Anyway, watch this hilarious clip from Mr T's 'Be Somebody... or Be Somebody's Fool' where the man himself gives out some 80s fashion advice...
