The plot centers on another attempt by Cobra Commander to overtake the world and the Joes rallying to stop him. The highpoint of the film for me included the ultimate battle between Snake Eyes and Stormshadow I always dreamed of as a kid. If the 2009 feature film had half of the energy and emotion as this one fight alone it would've been an infintely more enjoyable film. Bottomline is if you were a 1980s Joe fan and found the live-action film lacking then you will be pleasantly shocked and awed by this outstanding animated feature.
I was at a friend's house, killing time after watching my hockey team get knocked out of the play-offs, and my friend puts this movie in. I was going to argue, but he said to give it a chance. I'm glad he did!
This is a serious movie, and not recommended for small children, like the age I was last time I watched the show. In the opening scenes, a lot of people are killed, including a permanent member of GI Joe. People are stabbed and shot with bullets, not blue lasers, then getting "knocked out."
All that being said, it had a pretty good plot, and predictable, but decent, finish.
All in all, I was surprised how much I liked it! If this became an ongoing show, like on [Adult Swim] I'd stay up and watch it. Though at that rate, they'd run out of characters to kill pretty fast.
in the live action movie the Joe team was well represented, but Cobra was not, plus they made the Baroness a goodie two shoes, and dont get me started on the Snake Eyes orgin where he and storm are kids in a truly stupid and laughable fight scean.
but enough about that.
G.I. Joe Resolute started off as a webcartoon. Im VERY glad that it will be on DVD. its a Very good movie. a true G.I. Joe classic.
a word of warning, espeisly to parents, this movie is very adult. there are some brutal fight sceans in this movie, some blood, and a few people die.
Resolute begins with Cobra returning after a long period of rest. they kick off by killing off captain Blood and leaving him out in plain veiw. the Joe team have littel time to figure out Cobra's plan, but they must work fast, or the world is doomed.
we see many favorites in this movie, Duke, Snake Eyes, Tunnel Rat, Destro (in a mask as he should be unlike mr. Eccelston), the Baroness (in proper evil mood), Zartan pops up to, as do many other Cobra opretives and Joes.
again there are many deaths, such as capt. Blood. Bazooka is the first of the Joe team to die, just to show how serious this situation is.
Cobra is now out to use their new weaponry to dominat the world. Destro and the Baroness are holding some scientiest prisoner, and Storm Shadow is hunting Snake Eyes.
the movie does a good job of retelling the orgin of Snake Eyes (better then the live action movie did).
i like this version of Cobra Comander. there is even a slight acknolagement of the old Sunbow series.Read more ›
