Pure junk. Soldiers with goatees??? The movie shows Channing tatum is a Captain however a scene goes back 4 years earlier and he was a Major, Was he demoted??? . Special effect were so-so. I like fiction movies that you can fantasy a bit, that can look a bit real, but this movie was totally unreal.
Bring your ear plugs to GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra. The talking scenes are set at a perfect volume, as you can imagine from the previews, there is a lot of action, lots of explosions, and lots of chase scenes, all with plenty of room shaking volume which help's to make up for any lack of realism,... This movie would be better seen on the big screen with the earth shaking volume and visual effects, some pretty good, some less stunning.
I imagined that this movie would be more of a military type movie with a name like GI Joe, but the producers and directors apparently had no military experience nor any military technical input. It looks like a sequel is primed, hopefully they can correct that flaw in the film. In spite of a lack of realism, the movie was enjoyable to watch, it had a lot of humorous segments, and there was plenty of entertaining action and thrills but it didn't meet my expectations from the previews and I would not rate it as a great movie.
I would like to rate this film between a "Good" and a "Wait for Rental", but since they don't have an in-between rating, I'll give it a "Wait". I'm glad I saw it on the big screen for the effects. I hope they do a better job on the sequel, if they make it.
"G.I. Joe:the Rise of Cobra," is better than "Transformers:Revenge of the Fallen," and yes I was as shock as you are by finding the film as a good escapist adventure. I entered the theatre, bracing for the worst and came away with a neat little adventure. The Joes are assigned to bewttle cobra, a evil terrorist organization that wants to rule the world. the filmmakers should have given extra points for giving Sienna Miller a job. I'd rather see her in a movie rather than becoming a tabloid queen. Miller is very hot in a leather suit. It's nice to see her again. Rachel Nichols play Scarlett, a sexy redhead who I like very much. Channing Tatun is the leader of the joes, the battle across Europe are fun, and the underwater headquarters of Cobre reminds me of the James Bond movies of the 1960's where he find most of his enemies. I found this movie more of a movie and less of a toy commerical. I like this movie. Go Joe!
