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.

Very entertaining film, They toned down much of the excessive CGI and violence. It had a great storyline. There is much to like about this move.
3D is unnecessary, I felt like I didn't get much out of that except for a 2 or 3 time.
You only need the IMAX or regular version.

I went in thinking Rock, Bruce and Tatum but walked out going what happened to Tatum, Destro, Baroness and Ripcord? Both my son and I thought it was missing that all out kick ***movie like the first! I liked it without giving too much of the plot and characters but it definitely wasn't what I expected! The 3rd better be bigger, better and more characters! The coolest part of the movie was the Snake eyes with jinx scene in the Himalayas!

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.
