You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Framed for crimes against the country, the G.I. Joe team is terminated by Presidential order. This forces the G.I. Joes into not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
The film goes thus:
Kind of funny dialogue.
The Rock's absurd neck (seriously, it's as wide as his head!) and shoulders.
Holy shit that was unexpected.
Cobra Commander actually looks and sounds like Cobra Commander.
Ninjas sword-fighting while abseiling.
Jonathan Pryce being so hammy you could slice him up and make a sandwich.
More of The Rock's absurd neck and shoulders.
Misogynistic jabs by Bruce Willis at the resident action chick.
Surprising emphasis on gunplay and hand to hand combat rather than explosions.
Actually rooting for Cobra so I can see more Jonathan Pryce.
Damn, that trailer spoiled A LOT.
Massive epic climax.
Yeah, it was good.
For all its undeniable crappiness I do have a fondness for the original G.I. Joe movie as I warmed to its cheesy charms and Sienna Miller dressed in leather. However, Stephen Sommers’ film was not the runaway success the studio expected and because of this the delayed sequel has seen wholesale changes. With the exception of the odd franchise favourite, most notably Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, the original cast have been unceremoniously dumped in favour of a new breed of blander Joe.
Although it follows on from the first film, not that anybody can really remember the original’s plot, the GI Joe team are ruthlessly streamlined leaving a core of five Joes against the might of a growing Cobra…
Being a child of the 80s my go-to toy was of course G.I. Joe. Other then the toys, the cartoon was cool and all but it always bothered me that they had laser beams shooting out of every single weapon they had. Machine gun, pistol, tank cannon, it didn't matter. If it shoots, it shoots a laser beam. Even as a kid I thought that was bullshit.
For me I got my G.I. Joe fix from the Marvel Comics published G.I. Joe comic. The series was surprisingly realistic when it came to covert ops and military tactics. It was written by Larry Hama, a former firearms and explosive ordnance expert for the U.S. Army that served in…
A lot of people are saying that this is better than the first, and I have to call a bit of bullshit on that. As inoffensive as this film is, it is also on the opposite spectrum of stupid fun that Rise of Cobra is.
See, as dumb as Rise of Cobra is, it at least knows it, and lends itself to its own nice little campy tone. It runs with the stupid instead of trying to hide it, and I find that infinitely more enjoyable.
Retaliation, while not masquerading as anything more than dumb fun, doesn't have the same campy tone. It takes everything in the film a little too seriously, and thus, when something insanely stupid happens…

A few years ago, when I was but a young and naive FilmApe, I longed for the days when B movies existed, and cursed the modern days where all movies are just lumped together as one thing that are all comparable to each other. But, then it occurred to me that I was looking at things all wrong and that a new perspective would help me see things better. It is not like B movies stopped being made, they just got elevated to a status where they are no longer considered B movies. So, I began to look for films that are the modern equivalent of what use to be…
Great? No. Entertaining as fuck? Yes!
LOL @ RZA totally didn't fit in this.
Byung-hun Lee is awesome.
Adrianne Palicki was so gorgeous makes me want to go and rub one out.
A really fun action movie.
Who the hell keeps giving Jon Chu movies to direct? I hope he does a good job with Crazy Rich Asians because that book is amazing, but none of his previous work has made me trust in him.
Ehhh it's an improvement over the first but that's about it
Elodie Yung dresses in red, is trained by a blind man, and fights ninjas. It's that exactly the same as her role in season 2 of Daredevil?
Hat mir persönlich schon wesentlich besser gefallen als der erste Teil. Es mag zum Teil mit den Schauspielern zusammenhängen, - Bruce Willis und "The Rock" sehe ich einfach gerne - aber in diesem Teil fühlte ich mich einfach "gut unterhalten". Würde ich mir glatt wieder anschauen!
Besser als der erste Willis ist top, toll besetzt. Coole Action, für Superheldenfans empfehlenswert.
Für mich ist die Handlung genauso banal wie im Vorgänger, aber die Action ist auch genauso geil. Man versucht hier aber etwas weniger witzig zu sein wie im Vorgänger. Außerdem legt man ca. in der Mitte eine kleine Actionpause ein um sich mit den Figuren besser vertraut machen zu können.
