A very good action film with some moments of stress and lots of explosions. The characters for the most part are true to the old cartoon with a few changes in some of the backgrounds. Overall the movie kept to the feeling of the Joe's righteous fight against the forces of Cobra.

The change of Stormshadow's backstory to make him more of a gray character was unexpected but the team up of Snakeeyes and Stormshadow was heart warming and helped to balance the non-stop action with a sense of righteousness.

Big suprise in the beginning, killed the movie for me. I did not want dwayne johnson taking the lead in this franchise. oh well. It was a good try.

Not bad but rather derivative. Plenty of action to be sure. The Himalayan fight sequence was worth the price of admission but looked liked it belonged in another, better film.

Action movies by their nature are predicable but this one was simply dull. The story was interesting but was poorly put together and poorly executed. The cast fit together well enough but the effort put forth was half-hearted.
My advice is saved your money.
