The film handled the character development well. Many of the characters got backstories, and they never felt boring. The action scenes are fast, and by the time the credits roll, you want even more. The only drawback is, for those fans who like Snake-Eyes and Scarlett to be together, the film doesn't go that route. I didn't mind though.
Maybe the most shocking thing about this is, I don't even care for the G.I. Joe franchise, yet I still loved this film. So whether you are a fan or not, you should still watch this film.
The G.I. Joe trademark and franchise has its origins in the realm of toys. In 1964, Hasbro launched a line of realistic 12" action figures that represented various divisions of the military services. Later in 1982, a smaller line (3.75 inches) of these toys were introduced. With this line an entire storyline was also told. This story involved the battles between the G.I. Joe forces and the evil Cobra Command. It is from this storyline that this movie takes it queue.
The storyline is one that is closely knit around life long enemies, past lovers and good friends. At various points, there are flashbacks to fill in the missing pieces. The main article of contention are 4 warheads that contain a newly developed technology - Nanomites. These miniature robots and be programmed to eat metal and any other material as necessary, and can literally destroy anything in their path until they are deactivated.
There is plenty of action sequences throughout this film. There is a full set of high tech vehicles (air, land, underground and sea) to captivate your imagination. The sequence that I like the most is the street chase scene in Paris. I haven't seen such an intensely packed road sequence since the Matrix Reloaded. The guys in their body suits are simply fantastic!
Another great fight sequence is the final one between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes (Ray Park - who also acted as Dart Maul - Star Wars Episode I) - Excellent sword play!
Great Action film, produced for the Action Man.
