Based on Hasbro's immensely popular action figures, G.I. Joe is the ultimate elite fighting force, engaged in an extraordinary action-adventure matchup of good versus evil! In G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the G.I. Joe team, armed with the coolest hi-tech gadgets and weapons, travels the world from the Egyptian desert to the polar ice caps in a high stakes pursuit of Cobra, an evil international organization threatening to use a technology that could bring the world to its knees.

Yesterday, I received my 2 disc edition of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and I looked over the sleeve and it looked nice and got me all excited, reminded me of the G.I. Joe days of when I was a kid watching the cartoon! Then, I later last night put the second disc in to check out the extras! HA that was a joke! The only extras on this 2 disc is the making of the movie, and the special effects behind the scenes thing. Now granted those were cool, but the only real reason for the second disc is for the digital copy! I honestly think this movie is not worth [...] at all, maybe 16.99! Big deal you get the digital copy! How many of us out there really use the digital copy? Where was the deleted and alternate scenes? Is it really coming to the point where things are going to Blu Ray and not to regular dvd which their are a heck of a lot more dvd player owners then blu ray! I say if you are looking at this review on deciding whether to purchase the 2 disc, wait till it goes cheaper and get it! Don't spend over 10 bucks for it! Thanks for your time I hope this helps!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not GI JOE September 19, 2011
By SLAINE
Format:DVD
This is a good action movie, but it's not GI JOE. I don't know why they even bothered to call it GI JOE if they weren't going to stick closely enough to the original source material. Sure you can change things up a bit, but you don't need to go this far. The only time I got the chills at the sight of something that even vaguely represented GI JOE was when Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were on screen, but that didn't make up for it. The other thing about this film is that it's for the kids. Gritty and real this is not. Some might say it's a bit harsh but I think it's only a hop skip and jump away from Power rangers territory. Even the Fantastic Four seems more serious, and more convincing, at times (much better acting played a big part in this) and even they stayed closer to the source material (Yes, even the one with Silver Surfer). So if you're looking for a good action movie this is good, but we've yet to see something that brings GI JOE to the screen. To be fair, the biggest departure is the visual aspect, but that's so important in capturing the feel. If no one looks like the characters you were expecting, then it feels like you're watching something completely unrelated. I was dying to see the Vipers as they really looked and many other characters too. It's possible to do it without it being a kiddie flick - if they can make 3 foot tall people with hairy feet who go around fighting goblins convincing then there's no excuse why GI JOE couldn't stay much closer. I give it 2 stars for a GI JOE film and maybe 4 for an action film - so evens out to about 3. Don't expect GI JOE, or anything adult, and you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best summer blockbuster '09! November 19, 2010
By Michael
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am shocked that this film got such bad reviews. I mean, I really loved this film. Its just a fun, classic action film with tons of fights, explosions, chase scenes, and just general excitement. My favorite character, Snake-Eyes, gets more sceen-time than I expected, so for that, I am glad.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rise of Cobra? More like "Downfall of G.I. Joe". April 29, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Anyone who thought this was a good movie, seriously do not understand G.I. Joe., the story, the characters, or how much it meant to those who grew up on the comic books, the television cartoons, and the wonderful toys. They probably don't even understand what makes a good movie. Period.

That's okay. They could have called this movie "G.I Joe - Revenge of the Mummified Huck Finn" and it would have made no difference.

I don't have a problem with the cast. They are fine looking actors and actresses. Can they act? No, not really, but we are talking about comic book heroes and villains, not Oscar winning historical dramas. Goofy plot? Yes, but no more goofy or formulated than the typical television cartoon series plots.

I was truly hoping for a movie to explore the origins of Cobra, the G.I. Joe characters like Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Destro, Cobra Comander, etc. Big, climatic battles, explosions, high-tech weapons and equipment are bonuses, not the major features of a movie. Good story telling makes a good movie.

Instead, they cobbled together a weak plot and needlessly recreated character origins, their MOS, and tried to make up for it with CG graphics, special effects, big explosions, and the occasional nod towards the cartoon series and toys.

Problems I had with the changes in the movie include:

1. Duke was never engaged to the Baroness. The cartoon series did hint at a remote attraction, but never followed up on it. She was also German.

2. Duke's friend / the Baroness' brother is NOT Cobra Commander

3. Snake Eyes was NOT some Japanese orphan. He is a white American.

4. Snake Eyes did not take an oath of silence.
