Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For everyone who rolled their eyes even as they were secretly digging 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra as a guilty pleasure (not to mention giving it big box-office clout), this rejiggered sequel will probably prove irresistible. Hasbro and Hollywood have successfully created a franchise based on toy action figures that were introduced almost 50 years ago, now featuring all the guns, glory, and apocalyptic politics of the modern age. Along with that come the heights of preposterous circumstances and childish fantasy that any $200-plus million action movie requires. The video game quality and action figure/comic book childishness notwithstanding, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is anything but childlike with its incalculable body count, physical carnage, and extreme fetishization of violence and techno armaments. Feeling cocky from their vanquishing the evil Cobra organization in the first movie, the Joes are all the more ready to save the world from itself, making clandestine forays into North Korea and Pakistan with deadly precision. (The dizzying assault on a Pakistani weapons base is genuinely spectacular.) What they don't know is that Cobra has been lying in wait, and that the free world's Commander in Chief (Jonathan Pryce, having a fine time) is being impersonated by the nefarious Cobra operative Zartan (Arnold Vosloo). In the guise of a benevolent leader seeking world nuclear disarmament, "President" Zartan discredits and wipes out all but three of the Joe force. Fortunately Dwayne Johnson is among them, and every moviegoer knows he's pretty much an army of one. The script is so whiz-bang fast and full of impossibly extravagant CGI-enhanced eye-poppery that any synopsis would be akin to, well, 10-year-olds smashing three-inch action figures into each other and making up a narrative to go along with their guttural sound effects. And isn't that a pretty good description of escapism? Mention must be made of an incredible sustained set piece staged on sheer Himalayan cliffs where sword-wielding ninjas soar on ropes in an elaborate choreography that is as inventive as it is thrilling. The finale explodes at historic Fort Sumter, of all places, where the faceless Cobra Commander showdowns with the revivified Joes during "The President's" bogus disarmament summit. The cast is adequate in portraying good or bad real-life action figures with funny names and unbreakable bodies. Bruce Willis seems very happy chomping in to a glorified cameo as the retired Joe commander. Though the Joes carry the day and glory can be claimed, it should be noted that a sequel is teed up perfectly, especially in light of the fact that Cobra pretty much succeeds in its world-domination plan by obliterating the whole of London and its eight million inhabitants. It is the most extreme of money shots, rendered with loving detail; but don't worry, kids, it's only a movie. --Ted Fry

Product Description

In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just. Plain. Fun... March 31, 2013
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gi Joe Retaliation 3D Review June 27, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't have high expectations, entertaining July 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Movie August 2, 2013
By Ken
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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?

3.0 out of 5 stars Killed some time but would not watch it again August 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I know why most of these guys don't like this movie April 25, 2013
By AG
Format:Blu-ray
In order to appreciate the constant action scenes and the cliché plot line, you've gotta be a fan of the G.I. Joe franchise, as I am, before watching.

To a casual movie-goer, this film seems like a boring toy-selling vehicle with a half-baked plot and bland characters.

To a fan of the franchise, it got every part right. Cobra comes up with an evil plan, G.I. Joe stops it, it even has the classic Commander Bailing Out Early In A Helicopter bit.

Basically, fans of G.I. Joe will love it, but anyone else should stay away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Original and a Blast to Watch April 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Riddled with bad reactions from test audiences and plagued by re-shoots and 3D conversion during post, not many people believed that this film would ever be released. Alas, almost an entire year after it's original release date, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has finally seen the light of day. Compared to it's predecessor released four years ago, it's a stronger and better film, although it's still completely over-the-top and lacking in any meaningful plot. With that being said, it's a hell of a lot of fun!

The premise behind the film involves the G.I. Joes being framed for the theft of nuclear warheads by master-of-disguise Zartan, who is impersonating the Commander in Chief (Jonathan Pryce). The fake President gives the order to eliminate the team of Joes, culminating the annihilation of their leader Duke and the rest of the team, save for three members; Roadblock (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) and Flint (relative new-comer D.J. Cotrona). Together, along with the help of Snake Eyes and Jinx, the Joes go after Cobra Commander, Zartan, Storm Shadow, and the rest of the baddies to put a stop to their maniacal plans for world domination.

Johnson continues to prove he's one of Hollywood's most entertaining action stars, as he plays the part of the atypical macho man with ease. His on-screen camaraderie with Channing Tatum is easy and believable, and he delivers his one-liners perfectly. It was also nice to Palicki, formerly of Friday Night Lights, in the female ass-kicker role, and Bruce Willis is very John McClane-ish in his cameo, which makes for some fun on-screen moments. One of the standouts for me was Pryce, who completely owns his role as the Zartan-impersonated President, and has some of the best lines of dialogue in the movie.
