G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.
Such a frustrating disappointment
Good movie but grossly overrated
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
Even though I didn't have high expectations on this movie , it still managed to disappoint me I wouldn't recommend anyone to watch it
What can you expect from a movie originated from your childhood? This movie is exactly that...full of action, good actors, good progress and character development... I found this movie is very much entertaining and has a solid integrity in its own way and its definitely enjoyable. Just don't get confused by mature comments here, they don't really know what a new generation GI-Joe movie should be about...A must watch...8/10
I've never read the comics so watched this totally open minded. The acting is pretty bad, the story line is rather cheesy but the special effects are just fantastic and make the movie worth to watch! It is a simple bad-guys-want to destroy-and-rule-the-world scenario. Chris Ecclestone is one of the finer actors, and since I will always see him as Doctor Who, I got to say it's nice to see him in another role. Dennis Quaid is always okay, the fight scenes are really nice but the rest of the acting is really dreadful to watch. Again; awesome special effects, you will enjoy them very much. I'm off to watch the sequel now ;-)
G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra (2009): Dir: Stephen Sommers / Cast: Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, Dennis Quaid, Rachel Nichols: Here is the latest attempt to bring a vintage cartoon to the screen and this one pretty much proves that salaries should be cut when it comes to crap such as this. The theme of this junk has always been about teamwork although the screenplay collaboration seems spliced together by kids. The Joe squad assemble and do battle against the Cobra Commander and his army. This all amounts to a lot of action, violence and superb special effects much expected in a Stephen Sommers film. Sommers is the one responsible for those flimsy Mummy films, and this is no improvement. The cast sleepwalk through the film with an ensemble that includes Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, and Dennis Quaid. Could any of them have possibly seen this as a good career move? Most of them are interchangeable with characters that only hardcore collectors of the action figures will grasp. Watching a group of fraternity guys run around the woods with paint ball guns seems more entertaining this five minutes of this tripe. One wonders if this classic comic book could possibly be filmed effectively. It is more or less an excuse for another moron action film as oppose to a celebration of characters that would likely blow this film up. Score: 2 / 10
