I never really got into G.I. Joe when it was big; I was more of a TMNT + Transformers guy. I still saw several episodes and knew characters from my friends who enjoyed it though, so I wasn't coming into this completely blind. The main reason I wanted to watch this was an article I read about all the crazy Cobra-La characters and their organic buildings and weaponry. Those alone made the movie worth the watch in my opinion, but…
This has been on my watch list for a long time, mostly from when I was knocking out zombie movies left and right. Having finally watched it, it's total rubbish. The zombies are the worst kind of lazy, just green makeup and maybe a bit of plastic hanging off. The film ambles along, accomplishing largely nothing and basically assumes the viewer won't care because there's skin on display. The "kind-hearted zombie" is bizarre and poorly developed. There is zero attempt at making the movie scary, funny or even interesting. Really, aside from the concept of a lake full of undead, there's little to love here.
