GI JOE

Fucking AWESOME movie, best action movie I've seen in years.

At first I thought it would be stupid, because I assumed it would be like Transformers. In other words, Transformers could have just as easily been about any group of large robots fighting each other. Throw in some explosions and stupid jokes, and you have "Transformers" (and any other Michael Bay movie).

On the other hand, GI JOE takes many of the characters we were familiar with, and made a really fun movie about them. They changed some things here and there, but it's not like they completely changed everything. It's still GI JOE, not "random soldiers with cool weapons".

I think of it as being like STAR WARS for this generation. This is what Episode 1 should have been.

Really? I grew up in the 80's and GIJoes were always my favorite toy but the previews made me not want to watch it at the theatre. Maybe I should reconsider?

I reconsidered at the last moment. I was a huge fan of Transformers and GI Joe, and I hated the Transformers movie.

I had the same paradigm as you with Transformers. GI Joe sounds like a hit.

Oh...i dunno what to say.

I don't care about the whole 'not true to the cartoon,' 'the movie ruined my childhood blah blah,'.....im not one of those cartoon / comic book nerds that complains about those things.

As long as i find it entertaining, okay storyline, and not mind-numbing....then its worth my time.

But the movie itself? I found it....well, a waste of my time. On top of a bunch of things, it felt too artificial....almost kinda like watching that Speed Racer movie from last year.


Everything else i didn't like about it is completely subjective.

First off I want to say I did enjoy this movie and was a huge fan as a kid.

To enjoy this movie you have to accept the fact that everything is over the top and that it's like you were actually watching an episode of the old cartoon series. A live action cartoon movie is what it is and that's how it felt.

One of my complaints and reasoning to make you feel less like any of this could be plausible is that the technology in this movie is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond it's time. That plus the funding required by both the Joes and Cobra to have all that equipment is impossible.

But again, I came in expecting this and did enjoy it a lot. Storm Shadow + Snake Eyes = AWESOME.

And if there was one reason to watch this? THE BARONESS = HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT





I still think the directing was brutal. Certain scenes were really poorly done making it look really lame and almost like they are insulting our intelligence by making the explanations so clear and concise as if we couldn't understand it otherwise.

YO JOE!!


Sienna Miller should keep her hair black and always wear those glasses and leather suit.

Now that I think of it, if theres a movie that I can compare the impression i got with Gi Joe, it would be STREET FIGHTER (w/jc van damme).

Don't get me wrong....i loved the Street Fighter movie. But only because i love street fighter, not because Raul Julia deserved the Oscar for best supporting actor as M Bison.

The minute I saw Marlon Wayans in the trailer I lost total interest in this movie. To top it all off when they pull the whole "what does it accelerate?" "YOU!" I was like i'm done with this. Download for me.

Just saw the movie. Theatre was packed and sold out (as expected) and I think it was an entertaining movie to say the least. Sienna Miller ftw!
