GI Joe Rise of Cobra....

Post by Octane on Thu Aug 06, 2009 12:14 am

Saw it via an advanced screening junket.

No spoiler here.

I'd expected a bad film, everyone has been fairly much panning it (Probably without seeing it. Maybe universal hate for all Toy films thanks to this years monster blockbuster)

I liked it. Actually it was quite good. Being a film based on a toy line, and very terrible 80's cartoon. Probably the close to best GI Joe visual media available today. (Just being beaten out by recent CG cartoon of GI Joe which I though was excellent)

Action sequences where a win without being totally overwhelmed and actually fitting into the plot. (TF2) Stepping inside the Fantasy world of Military Tech was All Very GI Joe, it really never been too based in real world. Accelerator Suits work. Lots of cool Joe techy eye candy. It could have used a few tweaks here and there. For the Joe purist they have changed a lot of things, not to the level of TF whiney fans being in uproar but enough to annoy you. But there is more than enough there that should keep you happy as well. Joe fans compaired TF fans you got a award winning film. If you know very little about GI Joe other than the toys where cool as a kid then the film will entertain.

Tech, Baroness, Action & Ninjas are very cool...

(Several notches below Star Trek but well above Transformers and Terminator)

I wonder if there will be a sequel?

I'm looking forward to seeing it (probably tonight) as I'm a big Joe fan.

Sydney Morning Herald review just gave a big thumbs down (1 star).

saw a 10:15 screening to avoid the kids (they showed up anyway Shake Fist )

i was quite entertained, felt better paced than TF2, action served a purpose. I had a fun time. Can't wait for a sequal.

saw last night.....was better than a 1 out of five like the SMH review above.....thought the flash backs worked for the characters and had a decent story/introduction/action similar to marvel style movies.....actually it was a little too similar to starwars in a few scenes...maybe it was an "homage" and what was up with heavy Duty's accent.....that bothered me all movie... and thought it was funny the cobra guys were short on money for research....maybe don't build such an expensive underwater base full of attack boats/planes etc etc?

also ran an Avatar trailer before the flick....looks interesting
