Movie trailer


Here goes: 6.9/10
It's a good movie; honest! Not that I ever played with the action figures this is inspired from and not that I know of any lore attached, but I don't see the relation between soldier dolls with this film at all. In fact, as a bloke, when I was a kid I never had a good memory of those "traitor dolls" - guns and cool military stuff was NOT to be associated with ... (argh) Barbie dolls!
So, since I'm still traumatised, in order to bear watching this -which I delayed watch since 2009, we're in 2015...) I took it like another promising good action flick having nothing to do with GI Joe. And it worked!
OFC the film has flaws, what doesn't... I think first they shuda/cuda/wuda decided who to cater for: adults or kids. IMHO a full-on genre would've made for a great movie. We'd have had fuller characters and relations dynamics which IMO are so predictable you can almost see the guy backstage telegraphing everything they say before they do to one another...
Aside from that I fell asleep twice... yeah :/ Okay, maybe it's because it's Saturday and hot outside \o/ but I like to think stronger characters would've kept me awake because the acting is pretty decent TBH. Anyhoo, rating this afterwards.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is a 2009 American science fiction action film based on the G.I. Joe toy franchise, with particular inspiration from the comic book and cartoon series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The film is directed by Stephen Sommers, produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and co-written by Stuart Beattie, based on a 1998 screenplay by John Paul Kay. G.I. Joe features an ensemble cast based on the various characters of the franchise. The story follows two American soldiers, Duke and Ripcord, who join the G.I. Joe Team after being attacked by MARS troops. After leaked drafts of the script were criticized by fans, Larry Hama, writer of the comic, was hired as creative consultant and rewrites were made. Filming took place in Downey, California, and Prague's Barrandov Studios, and six companies handled the visual effects.
What happen to the latest GI Joe movie...

People tend to over think this movie too much. For a movie to be based off of a childrens cartoon series I think it was done pretty damn well. There is not a ton of plot or story its just a typical action movie with catch phrases. But sometimes maybe that's all you need. Sometimes we just want to see action, kick ass men, and hot ass woman. The plot can just come second. All in all its a decent film and worth the watch. The over anal-yst below me obviously prefer something more of the lines of sex in the city 2.

omg no one cares if u like it or not if you dont like it dont even comment heck dont even watch the dam movie. one bad comment is enough.

Someones put a 'tap' on my brain and syphoning off my child hood 80's T.V fantastique!! Next there will be a film of Lego, 5,4,3,2,1 bars and a re-remake of He-man!

Bagpuss the movie coming soon to a nostalgia near you!!
just saw the superBowl Commercial for G.I. JOE and it looks fuken awesome! they say only shity movies come out in Aug. but hopefuly this is the begining of GOOD movies coming out that month

wholey moley!! what an optimistic douche!!

i can't belive i totally called this one.
when my nephew asked me what i was gunna give this flick
i told him it would be an 80% to which he said


and i was like OH SHIT!!!

i did like harry potter more (gave the fucker a 100%)
so i had to explaine to him...
more like talk him out of that fukken death stare
the little fucker was dogg'en my way...
shee'et .. little fucker better recognize.....

ah, but i digress..
so i explained to him that when we had gone to see harry potter
i wasn't expecting a gat damn thang and what i got was fucking awesome...
two hours of just magic and shit..
harry potter had once again blew me away and i was not expecting that without alfonso curon behind the fucking camera,
so it was a nice surprise....

unlike G.I. JOE
which i was expecting the heavens themselves to be handed down to me for my inner 10 year old to feast on...
and what i got was a movie that basically had its actors do all the cool shit that i would do with my g.i.JOE'S when i was younger,
such as jump on cars , have super human strength , and jump real high and shit...

but i wonder what happened ..
did they throw more money at it as it was wrapping up..
did they piss off a director who knows what hes doing with action, i mean hellow, mummy II anyone..

what was missing in this flick... maybe it was .. the magic...

god i totally pulled this review right out of my ass.. i apologize for the stench..


the barronness is being mind controlled.. she no be evil.. just misunderstood.

destro also by the end of the flick becomes mind controlled.

and the president of the united states is a shapeshifter for cobra..

whom: i don't know how the fuck they'er gunna mix dat shit in if they green light a sequel, but they butter hurry the fUk ; and give me my serpentor ... gat damn it!
Was an awesome movie, saw a pre-screening of it mid-april. Not allowed to talk about any of the stuff due to the paper I had to sign. But I guarantee you this, it is an AWESOME movie. You will not be disappointed!
My favorite movie of the summer, i grew up with the acion figures so that helped me love the movie even more. Gi joe is just a movie thats meant to entertain and provide the audience with fun; its not trying to be anything that its not. A definite must watch.
