    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Piece of 80's History. YO JOE!!!!! April 13, 2001
    By Mr. JKW
    Format:DVD
    Another mainstay of 80's children's cartoons I bought this DVD is my attempts to "recapture my childhood" and I AIN'T disappointed!!! The movie itself was okay but the DVD extras are what make this a "must-keep" for me. For the uninitiated, here's a rundown:
    Plot synopses: GI Joe (America's top military force) battles against Cobra (evil terrorist organization trying to take over the world). It this particular movie, the Joes try to stop Cobra from devolving the world through these organic spores. In this movie the true ancient origins of Cobra(la) are FINALLY revealed.
    The movie marked a landmark in GI Joe storylines. (Personally, I thought it was sorta the beginning of the end...) Most the old-time favorite Joes and Cobras appeared. Many new characters also made their debut (Lt. Falcon, the Renegades, Nemesis Enforcer, etc). However, the movie itself, in my opinion is NOT the best feature of this DVD. The exclusive DVD features are!!!
    Exclusive DVD features: TWENTY-FIVE (25) ORIGINAL G.I. JOE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS (you know, those "knowing is half the battle" things they aired at the end of each episode for the kids!!!) Two (2) movie trailers. Two (2) vintage action figure commercials (too waaay back even for me. Can't believe how cheesy those back in the day commercials were). A shameless plug for VHS tapes of G.I. Joe and Transformer cartoons.
    The DVD extras truly make this a "Collector's edition." DEFINITELY a piece of 80's nostalgia. Those PSA's RULED!!!
    Here's my rundown:
    GREAT: The DVD features especially those PSA's. "Knowing is half the battle!!!"
    Good: The action, soundtrack and animation. They sure don't make kids cartoons like this anymore!!!!
    So-so: The movie trailers.

    4.0 out of 5 stars 80s Nostalgia at its Best July 29, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    If you're reading this, you probably grew up watching G.I. Joe: The Movie and already know you like it, so I won't spend a lot of time reviewing the movie itself. Suffice it to say that as a piece of nostalgia, G.I. Joe: The Movie is great fun, but for newcomers, I think it might be hard to sit through. Personally, I love it.

    IMAGE QUALITY:
    What you really want to know is whether this is any better than the Rhino release from a few years ago. I always thought the Joe movie looked pretty good, but this new Blu-ray is a significant improvement. The visual aspects of the film still have some minor issues (scratches, dust and some slight color shifts that could be the product of bad prints or bad restoration), but it still looks better than ever. Colors are vibrant and detail is generally quite sharp. I noticed several visual details on characters or in the background I'd never caught before.

    WIDESCREEN:
    It is also worth noting that this is the first time the film has been released in widescreen. It was intended to be released theatrically, but after the 1986 Transformers: The Movie flopped, Hasbro and Sunbow opted for the direct to video route. As a result, G.I. Joe: The Movie has always been presented in the standard 4:3 TV format. For the first time with this release we can see the movie as it would have been shown in theaters. This means that a little of the top and bottom of the TV version have been shaved off and a little has been restored to the sides. There are some sequences when the new format works in its favor, and others where the 4:3 format works better, but on the whole, I enjoy the new format, especially when viewing the movie on a widescreen TV.

    4.0 out of 5 stars "Knowing is half the battle!" July 9, 2000
    Format:DVD
    As excited as I am to see _any_ part of the legendary G.I. JOE series on DVD, I can't help but wish that the original and best JOE movie (the one about the MASS Device) had been chosen for the honor before this one. Although this particular film (which ran at or near the end of the TV series) is beautifully animated and action-packed, its plot is fantastically far-fetched, and way too much time is spent introducing - and then featuring - nearly a dozen new JOEs. Consequently, old favorites like Flint, Scarlet, Snake Eyes, and Lady Jaye (just to name a few) are given little or no screen time. I also dislike the way the script treats my favorite cartoon villain, Cobra Commander. Here we learn the reason the Commander wears a mask, but then he's dismissed as a useless buffoon. Nevertheless, this disc is a must-buy for any fan of the great toons of the mid 1980s. The picture and sound quality are tremendous (though all those flashing explosions may give you a headache), and the special features include no less than 25 of those unforgettable public service announcements that used to close every G.I. JOE episode. You'll also find two vintage toy commercials, and two trailers - which, ironically, pertain to the aforementioned MASS Device movie. I applaud Rhino for this DVD release, and remain hopeful that many more are on the way. YO JOE!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A fun movie, finally available on DVD June 30, 2000
    Format:DVD
    If you're like most people my age, you most likely will smile at the mention of G.I. Joe. Along with TransFormers (whose movie is due out on DVD in October), this was my favorite cartoon. The opening of the movie is excellent! The movie itself, is good. However, it doesn't focus much on older characters, so if you're looking for such favorites as SnakeEyes or StormShadow, keep your eyes peeled, they appear only in fleeting moments. The new characters are pretty cool, and the revelation that Cobra was created by Cobra-La brings a whole new dimension to the whole G.I. Joe vs. Cobra theme. With a voice cast that includes Don Johnson and Burgess Meredith (who, ironically, starred in the 1945 movie THE STORY OF G.I.JOE), and extras such as the old G.I.Joe commercials and all the public service announcements that played at the end of daily episodes, this DVD is a great way to relive one's younger days.
