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

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.

I think the cast of the first movie had better chemistry. While I think The Rock was a good addition, I did not like the character of Lady Jaye, Jinx or Flint as they were portrayed.

If you enjoyed the first movie and are expecting the same from this one, you will be disapointed.

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?

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.

Cobra is at it again. This time the Joe's are under attack from within their own government. Hit hard with most of the Joe's dead they are now led by Roadblock, played by American actor Dwayne Johnson. He and his remaining team want revenge for their lost teammates by seeking help from General Colton (the original Joe), played by American actor Bruce Willis. They know something must be wrong with the Commander and Chief, played by Welsh actor Jonathan Pryce, for this kind of strike to have been authorized. With Colton's help they devise a plan to find out what has happened to the President and stop what they believe to be a Cobra Commander takeover of epic proportions.

Director Jon M. Chu has done a good job directing slick action scenes in this film. My two favorite parts were scenes where the Joe's hide in a well to escape raining fiery death coming down on them by the attacking enemy Cobra, and second the completely amazing and exciting very well choreographed Ninja ropes scenes high in the mountains. All were very entertaining and fun to watch. All the Ninja fights scenes between Snake Eyes, played by Scottish actor Ray Park and Storm Shadow, played by South Korean actor Byung-hun Lee were impressive and well done. These two scenes helped make the admission price worth it.

"G. I. Joe: Retaliation" is a little bit better then it's predecessor, but only a bit. The plot line is a sequel to 2009's "G. I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra". Here again we have an old worn out plot line I think is used way too much by Hollywood. I wish they would come up with something different, fresh and new. Meanwhile we are fed this kinda boring evil bad guy wants to take over the world scenario. If I do have to watch this story line I don't mind it too much if the scenario is done with finesse.
