If you've really got the need to waste an hour and a half of your life, and it HAS to be this movie, watch the 4 trailers back to back for that period of time.

Let's be clear that "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is an action movie based on a comic book and a toy action figure. It features virtually non-stop action, some terrific special effects, and a comic book plot. This is not "Patton" or "The Ten Commandments" or even "Die Hard." It is a fun, no-brainer movie in which the good guys eventually win and the bad guys eventually lose, but some of the bad guys escape to set up the next movie.

As the movie opens, the GI Joes, an elite American special operations combat unit, are in action, securing some loose Pakistani nuclear weapons from insurgents in a superb action sequence inside a military facility. However, the Joes are framed by the President, who is really an impersonator planted by the terrorist organization Cobra. The fake President sends a military strike after the Joes, wiping out the unit. The Cobra organization liberates its imprisoned leader and executes its clever plan to take over the world.

Fortunately, three of the Joes survive the ambush in Pakistan. Led by Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, they go underground, figure out the frame-up, and make contact with two key people: the ninja warrior Snake Eyes and a retired Joe, General Coulton. Together, they will put together a plan to ambush Cobra at a nuclear weapons summit at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, of all places.

The action sequences are quite good, including shoot-em-ups in Pakistan and at Fort Sumter, and a fantastic ninja sequence on a cliff in some remote and unnamed mountain range. Bruce Willis has an excellent extended cameo as General Coulton, while Jonathan Pryce enthusiastically chews the scenery as a real and fake president.

"G.I. Joe", underneath all the high tech weapons, martial arts, and special effects, is a good old-fashioned action movie. Park your brain and enjoy the ride.

This 3D review is intended for those with 3DTVs and/or fans of 3D.

GI Joe Retaliation was originally meant to be released during summer 2012, but was delayed till March 29, 2013 to be converted into 3D. So did they have enough time to make the 3D worth our time and frustration (of GI Joe fans) having to wait even longer to see the movie in theaters?

Absolutely. The 3D is very powerfully rendered in GI Joe Retaliation. This is not a half baked 3D effort as many of the earlier, hurried 3D conversions of films like Clash of the Titans' poor 3D. The 3D here offers unexpectedly outstanding dimension and depth in many of the cool action scenes, coupled with a generous amount of pop outs. It's been said the Snake Eyes scene was noteworthy (with Snake Eyes portrayed on the Blu Ray 3D cover), and indeed it is as the 3D gives that scene depth the likes of which are rarely seen in conversions. Thankfully the rest of the movie holds up well in 3D.

3D Overall: 9/10
3D Dimension: 9/10
3D Pop Out: 8/10
3D Depth: 9/10

I don't get the low reviews on this, people complaining about the story and the acting...? I saw the first one, so my expectations for this were low. I went into this expecting to see over-the-top action, corny lines, and explosions. The movie delivered. If you want deep storyline and meaningful conversations, then you should go see another flick. If you want to see people get blown up, then watch this.

If you are looking for a stirring plot and character development, this is not your movie. If you are looking for a fun movie, with good action and special effects then rent this one. I can't believe critics try to rate every movie based on skill of acting, plot, and character developmetn. C'mon folks, it's G.I. Joe.... what do you expect?

As someone who grew up with the cartoon & comics there is plenty to say about the film versions, 2009's "Rise of Cobra" did get some things right, casting Rachel Nichols as "Scarlett" & Sienna Miller as "Baroness" was right on target, as was Ray Park as "Snake Eyes", (see review from 2009) this new film is about the same but suffers some inconsistencies as well, things they got right...."Duke"(Channing Tatum) & "Roadblock's" (The Rock) freindship is on par with the comics, & The Rock definately looks the part no doubt, as with the first film, "Snake Eyes" & "Storm Shadow's" connection is explored once more, "Zartan" impersonating the President, & yes, this time they get Cobra Commander right!... "Firefly" is portrayed accurately,.... things they got wrong....killing off Duke (was pushed back 9 months so Tatum could get more screen time, what screen time???)...never happened in the comics, "Cobra Commander" & "Storm Shadow" leaving "Destro" to die,(what??)....no explanation as to what happened to "Baroness, Scarlett, Breaker, Ripcord, & Hawk" from the first film, Paramount was too cheap to bring back Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Marlon Wayans, & Dennis Quaid, but not explaining their fates was even cheaper!!, a line of dialogue would have been nice, but noooooo!!!...we are left to wonder, Sienna Miller in 2009 said she was paid to appear in three "G.I.Read more ›
