Angle Grinding - Proper Sparks.

Moviegoers the world over have complained about the man in the 2010 film about the A-Team not being the 'proper' BA Baracus.

"If that's the proper BA Baracus I'll eat my hat," one film buff told us outside a Manchester multiplex. "Well, I would if I was actually wearing a hat, but it's been quite warm out today, so I'm not. But I would if I was."

Many film goers apparently felt the same way, being unable to understand why Mr T wasn't given the BA role, given that he's been making a lot of TV ads lately. In a helicopter.

"It's a swizz," a woman told us. "That BA they've got in the movie - he's okay I suppose, but he's no Mr T. He says all the right stuff, like calling everybody 'fool!' but it just isn't the same."

The new movie has also been panned by engineers for its lack of welding and angle-grinder scenes - vital plot devices in the original TV series.

Some fans however, loved the movie. Student, Hurdy Gurdyburden from Stockholm, Sweden, told us:

"It was a great movie. The problem with a lot of these dissenters is that they are living in the past. These days, people don't want to see welding and angle grinding in movies. A few sparks and a cobbled together tank don't cut it any more. People want three D and spectacular CGI. At the end of the day, nobody is interested in tight scripts and good acting. This is the age of console gaming and txtng. These old farts need to get their heads around that."

Buffty Ginslinger then called Hurdy Gurdyburden a twerp and threatened him with a Sir Larry impression. Hurdy ran off in the direction of the bus stop.

More as we get it.
