by Zach Becker With a dearth of creativity, Hollywood seems to be angling for movie ideas wherever it can get them. Bobbing through the studio franchise vault, Dune Entertainment and director Joe Carnahan wrangled in a winner with The A-Team. I’ll admit, I had my doubts before I entered the theater.
