Plot: Two soldiers stationed in Kazahkstan (Captain Duke Hauser and his partner "Ripcord") are ordered to transport special warheads created by MARS, an arms' manufacturer controlled by James McCullen. When they are attacked by thieves (led by Anastasia DeCobray, with whom Duke has history), they are saved by a top secret, international special forces unit known as "G.I. Joe". The leader of G.I. Joe, General Abernathy (or Hawk) is on the trail of the thieves: an evil organization called "Cobra". While Duke and Ripcord train to join the Joes, McCullen ("Destro") is secretly working for Cobra and plotting to recapture his metal-eating "Nanomite" warheads. Duke and Ripcord (with help from Heavy Duty, Snake Eyes, and the rest of the Joes) must prove that they are Real American Heroes -- by stopping the launch of these warheads before Cobra uses them to take over the world.

Haters Beware! This Movie Rucking Fules! (by spartanlord91)
i thought this was a great movie. i hate people that rip on movies. everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this is ridiculous. it's no dark knight, but it was action packed. i loved transformers 2 as well. if there are a lot of people out there that hate this, why has it done pretty good? movies like these are awesome. they made good casting, the cg effects were spectacular, and i wait patiently for the sequel. cobra commander and snake eyes were my favorites, but also the other characters were pretty cool. if i make anyone upset by this comment, feel free to not agree with me. i <more>
don't care. i am a fan of Stephen sommers and a fan of movies. no specifics just movies in general.

Channing, Sienna and Rachel delivering their character for Duke, Baroness and Scarlett in well!! They really good!! I Love THEM SO MUCH! well, especially Rachel Nicols !!!! The desperadoes for this movie also good because they force me to kill them due to their behavior!! i will always hate Storm Shadow especially because he so irritating and vicious love Snake Eyes !!The actions is brilliant too. Great effects, but too ridiculous!! and <more>
sounds so loud . My Favorite scene is when all of them at Paris!! Its so Tantalizing and Tempting!! but no comment for scripts.This film also has a comedy moments whereas Marlon Wayans delivers the comedy moments he always in that!! Lastly, for those who doubt to watch this movie i suggest u to go now and watch it because it worth every seconds and you will love it!!!! I will watch it again and again until the most anticipating movie District 9 coming out!!p.s : get off ROTF and HBP!! because JOEs are coming!!sorry for my bad English ;
It's just a fun film based on a toy line from the 80's it's Eye candy if you don't get that then you shouldn't have watched it. yup it could have been better but it could have been worse see Transformers 2 For those of you who were long time fans of the Joes and felt betrayed I love G.I. Joe and with the exception of G.I. Joe extreme I never stopped collecting the figures or reading the comics or loving the cartoon which was a terrible show by the way the movie was great they did real honor to snake and storms past, so what if scarlet flirts with Rip cord who should <more>
have been stalker but that's a creepy name and easy to see why they didn't use it. As far as the baroness and the commander being brother and sister BIG DEAL would you prefer he was a Cobra La. The movie worked and you got to see some Joes on the big screen it wasn't perfect but it wasn't terrible. grow up, go on a diet' cut your hair, and move out of your mothers basement. I am done defending this entertaining movie to net boobs and I gave it a 10 because so many "lost in translation" fans gave it a 1 or 2.
An action joyride with a very likable cast. (by psychogoatee)
G.I. Joe is a fast paced action film, with characters that are lovable enough to make it a joy to watch.As our heroes, we notably have Scarlett Nichols and Ripcord Wayans , who have a fun romance throughout. Rachel Nichols is great, very sexy with a sense of fun, and Marlon shines as the wisecracking nice guy hero. Then we have the stoic warriors Duke Tatum and Snake Eyes Park kicking ass. Giving orders and being enjoyably intense and cheesy, in a good way, is Dennis Quaid as General Hawk.Tormenting our heroes at every turn, we have Baroness Miller and Storm Shadow Lee with the <more>
most screen time. This pair are a joy to watch as they have fun wreaking havoc. Sienna Miller rocks as the sexy bad girl, and Byung-hun Lee is amazingly suave. Their commander is done justice by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who fills the classic role of the maniacal villain.The story takes these two lovably entertaining groups of characters, and puts them in a constant series of battles throughout the film. There are brief interludes to flesh out the characters, which do add to the film, but for the most part it's just a joy to watch these warriors go at it.Sit back and watch as the awesomely entertaining over-the-top war rages on.
One of the most iconic franchises in American history, G.I. Joe has been inspiring the minds of the American youth for decades. As a kid, I played with the figures, spending hours upon hours setting up war scenes in the living room, using all of the furniture as the terrain for the battlefield I had planned out in my head. Between the comic books and TV show, there was just no denying that G.I. Joe was absolutely awesome. Now, a live-action movie based on the franchise had yet to be done.......until now. Is it the summer blockbuster moviegoers will flock to, or just a miserable action mess? <more>
Evil has shown its hideous face on earth and the G.I. Joe organization refuses to let it prevail. Albeit simple, how much of a plot do you really need? Sure, there are a variety of characters each with their own dilemmas and whatnot, but nobody gives a crap about that. We went to the theater to see some spectacular action, and thankfully, that is just what the film has given audiences. The action sequences are enormous spectacles that just burst with excitement on the screen. Not only are the action sequences terrific, but there are just so many of them that it's mesmerizing. Cars flipping over, explosions in public places......it's absolutely crazy. The creativity in which these action scenes are created with also adds to the entertainment factor. Audiences have seen explosions and action sequences thousands of times in movies, but here, everything feels exciting and new to the point where it is truly refreshing. Also, even with a PG-13 rating, the action scenes don't feel cut and make audiences feel cheated like with many PG-13 action movies that are cut-down for the kiddies.Simply put, this is the way CGI should be used in movies. Instead of relying on CGI to create the movie from scratch, the creators used CGI as a tool to further enhance G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. This is not like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in which everything is a jumbled mess of computer images vomiting across the screen. In G.I. Joe, everything has a distinct shape, making everything appear very flashy and sophisticated. Sure, some brief clips here and there may appear to be a tad bit rushed, but these are in very small numbers as the rest of the movie is just a feast for the eyes. The machines are sleek, powerful and edgy, and everything maintains just the right balance between serious and silly. Too much silliness and the movie feels cheap and crappy, and trying to hard to be serious leads to unintentional hilarity in which nobody is willing to believe what is happening. The balance is perfect, though, and everything just really works.As far as the acting is considered, these are not Academy Award winning performances, but that's mainly due to the nature of the script as opposed to amount of talent each actor has. Dennis Quaid works surprisingly well as General Hawk, and it really seemed like he was having a good time filming the movie, which in turn helps audiences further enjoy it. Other than that, the only real person that I must mention is a completely random appearance by Brendan Fraser. He doesn't serve much of a purpose in any way, but it's great to see him in an entertaining movie for a change. Please Brendan, go back to being awesome. Please? .G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra may not be a perfect movie, but it's just so enjoyable and fun that everything else is irrelevant. Many people were skeptical right from the early announcement that the movie would be live-action, but I can safely say that after all the anticipation and speculation, the movie was worth the wait. It's a refreshing action movie that celebrates its subject matter with plenty of the famous lines being said in the movie, and it just knows how to have a good time. Definitely check this one out in theaters since the spectacle it produces on the big screen is fantastic. And now you know that you should see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra........and knowing is half the battle.
I went to see this mostly because Sienna Miller looked amazing in the preview and she sure looks fine in this movie. But the movie as a whole surprised me in how much fun and non-stop action it was. I'm glad to say the the "critics" are flat out wrong on this one and am happy to see that audiences responded well.This movie has a great pace- there are several non-stop action scenes with some breaks in between where the Joes gather at headquarters, or when we get some background about the characters. There's a lot of story here, this is not a mindless Michael Bay CGI-fest. <more>
There are actually some funny lines and the characters' relationships with each other are well-developed.A new devastatingly destructive weapon is developed by the MARS corporation. They seek to sell it to NATO. But the people at MARS don't exactly have the world's best intentions in mind. The military team in charge is ambushed as they transport this weapon by a mysterious group with powerful weapons. But the GI Joes intervene and two military guys ask to join the Joes to recover the weapon.The two main Joes are Duke and Ripcord- horribly played by a painfully miscast Marlon Wayans- yes that's the skinny Wayans playing a military guy! Otherwise we have a great cast: the gorgeous Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols- not looking bad either, Arnold Vosloo, Jonathan Pryce, Dennis Quaid, Channing Tatum- all of them doing a great job.There are plenty of action scenes, the most amazing one, a car/motorcycle/foot chase scene in Paris that's just mind-blowing and remarkably well done. The third act taking place underwater is almost unnecessary, or should have been shortened. This is a long movie and the Paris scene would have made for a good climax. Overall this movie is a lot of fun and it is not insultingly dumb as most blockbusters.
What Transformers 2 should have been and sadly wasn't (by SebaZava)
I was very looking forward to the G.I. Joe film, not because I'm a fan of the toys or the animated series, but because I knew what to expect: tons of cool special effects and some really exciting action. And guess what? That's exactly what the film provides.If there's something G.I. Joe is, it's an action movie. But unlike movies like Transformers 2, Sommers' motion picture actually succeeds at providing with wall-to-wall action. Unlike Michael Bay, he doesn't insert explosions every three seconds, and doesn't seem to have the need of shaking his camera like a <more>
madman so that the audience doesn't have a clue of what's happening. Yes, there is a lot of action in this movie, but it is of the comprehensible sort, meaning the viewer actually knows if his favorite characters are in danger and also has the opportunity of enjoying and being marveled by the special effects instead of watching balls of fire and tons of CGI that doesn't make sense. Sommers' approach to action is almost "old-fashioned", and I thanks him for that. Of course, that doesn't mean that all of the action sequences work beautifully; some of them are a little tiresome actually. There is no denying, though, that the Paris action set-piece is quite awesome, both in terms of special effects, and in terms of how excited and tense it made me feel.Now, regarding the special effects... yes, they are by no means perfect, and yes, the film does have a sort-of artificial look from time to time, but it's nothing serious. Sommers always inserts a lot of computer-generated effects and other extravagances in his movies, and although these kinds of tricks have improved in quality during the last couple of years, it's always hard to make them look 100% realistic if you're inserting them virtually everywhere. The movie doesn't have an infinite budget, after all. Nevertheless, because the film doesn't take itself excessively seriously unlike Revenge of the Fallen , these kinds of "mistakes" are allowed. I even accepted a final "revelation", which occurs during the last few minutes of runningtime, and which includes a "new" and very cheesy Darth Vader-looking bad guy. Why? Because I accepted the fact that this is a "toy movie", and that nothing expect maybe some of the characters should be taken too seriously.Performances are what should be expected from this kind of movie. Not particularly strong, but not bad either. The standout is Sienna Miller, who is almost unrecognizable with black hair and dark glasses. She looks really hot, though. She seems to be having lots of fun playing the bad guy, and thus manages to create a very memorable and entertaining character. Rachel Nichols is cute and believable as Scarlett, and Marlon Wayans is great as Ripcord; he can be funny and dorky from time to time, but because he's also a pretty good soldier and because he's never too goofy, one can take his character kinda seriously. His flirting with Nichols was great, not only because it was fun, but because it was - for a lack of a better word - awesome to see an inter-racial romance making an appearance in a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Christopher Eccleston is effective as a megalomaniac villain, and despite their small parts, the likes of Dennis Quaid always reliable, that bloke , Brendan Fraser and Jonathan Pryce ! are memorable. The one disappointment, though, is Channing Tatum, who as Duke is almost as wooden as Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker. He looks good during the action sequences, but that's about it.The main reason, though, of why G.I. Joe is so much superior to Revenge of the Fallen I know I'm comparing both movies a little too much, but it's almost unavoidable is that the former actually has memorable and fun characters worth rooting for, while the latter has virtually no characters, and instead provides with a gazzilion CGI robots who look virtually all the same during the confusing action sequences. I like the fact that each Joe is given a back-story through flashbacks the most interesting is definitely the one concerning Snake Eyes and his rival, Storm Shadow , and I also like the fact that, despite having very archetypical personalities, each character is instantly recognizable and played with style. The screenplay might not be particularly smart although it's a million times wittier and organized than the one for Michael Bay's picture , but it accomplishes what it sets to do: provide with nice and entertaining characters, a plot that actually makes sense, and action sequences that don't feel repetitive or dull.So has Stephen Sommers and his creative team managed to fulfill expectations? Well, considering buzz for the movie a couple of months ago was horribly negative, it won't be hard for the filmmakers to please their audience, but even if expectations had been higher, I don't think viewers would have emerged disappointed from theatres. I can say I was a Joe virgin before watching the movie; I knew nothing about the characters, the plot or the role of the "Cobra" organization in the series' mythos, but after watching the film, I am now more interested in everything related to it. Needless to say, the movie does do a really good job at presenting the characters and the plot to newbies, and I'm sure that for die-hard fans, it is a very entertaining and visually-pleasing way to revisit their favorite characters. With its comprehensible action, cool special effects, effective performances and mildly-interesting plot, G.I. Joe is one of the better big-budget action extravaganzas I've seen in some time. In short, what Transformers 2 should have been and sadly wasn't.
Had Low Expectations. Loved The Movie! (by DaleP1979)
OK, I had almost every GI Joe toy growing up. I also watched the cartoon. Being a young kid during the 80's was awesome. As far as I am concerned, the toys and the cartoons from that era are the best. However, after first seeing the preview for GI Joe, and seeing that they now wore mech suits...... I had very low expectations for the movie. Just figured they were trying yet another way to milk money off of the remainder of 80's cartoons/ re-imaging.However, I have to say, even though there was a little cheesiness to it, I really enjoyed this movie. This movie is based off a <more>
toy/cartoon/comic book. It isn't like other comics that could be deep, or thought provoking. It was always mainly about action, cool weapons, good guys and bad guys, getting caught and then escaping. This movie is just that. A action movie from start to finish. Has enough of a storyline to make it from beginning to end, but is mainly about the action. It doesn't give you a lot of back story to the characters. You do get a couple flashbacks, just so you know who people are, and how they are connected. But this isn't really an origins movie. I think some people were expecting some kind of epic movie experience. This movie is not that! This is a popcorn/ summer action movie/ and a way to relive some childhood memories for those of us who grew up watching the cartoon, or playing with the toys.For those of you complaining about plot holes, and/or unbelievable science......... come on!!! What about the original cartoons was so believable??? This is fantasy!!!I will admit though, although I did like the movie, some of the special effects were not that good. There were a few times during the movie where I saw something that just looked too fake, and I was like ... "that is just cheesy". But overall, it was a fun movie. Definitely not one I regret going to see.
Fun, tightly executed summer movie (by chi-cerca-trova)
GI JOE was a film I was wary going into. I loved the toys and animated show growing up, and this seemed like a cynical cash in. And to an extent, it was. There is no use denying that.However, I realized that, as a summer blockbuster, it works wonderfully on that level. Devious bad guys, squared jaw good guys and thrilling action pieces make this a fun adventure.Stephen Sommers has steadily gone down hill the past few years. I really enjoyed The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. Then The Scorpian King and Van Helsing were complete duds to me. But, GI JOE is a return to form. Tightly directed action <more>
sequences, characters that don't try to hard to fit their niche and actors who filled the roles they were meant to fill.So, I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a summer movie for what it is.
