When a flick is based on a toy--even if it's a classic one--the expectations are already low, as seen here: a basic plot, a bunch of interchangeable military-type characters, and a lot of CGI action. Cobra is an evil organization bent on world domination and there's an arms dealer and a super weapon and a bad ninja and a good ninja and the various members of the G.I. Joe squad running around Paris, but the blinding and deafening explosions and dazzling gizmos will distract from all that anyway.
Everything in this movie is just wrong. Why did they change everything, why was it so stupid, why so much bad acting? I guess I was hoping for too much being a fan of the cartoon. Hopefully it can be fixed in the sequel, oh and the Baroness being Dukes fiance and from the States and no accent STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I'm fine now just need to relax and let it go.
Rex will live on as the infamous Cobra in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. Michael B. Gordon did it again as a movie writer. When will we see more of his work? I rate this movie as a five star piece of entertainment. It has all of the plot twists, love triangles, and drama that you would expect in Gone with the Wind, yet rolled into a modern scifi adventure. I'll be waiting for the obvious sequel, for this movie took great pains to set up the whole past, present, and future of Team GiJoe while delivering a stand up plot of its own. See it soon.
