I liked the movie. Lots of action. We saw in 3D which usually is hard for me to see, but was able to enjoy the movie's special effects.
Disappointed that Channing Tatum dies so early in, but other than that, pretty good! Loved Bruce Willis' character.

The 3D was pretty good, the action was solid, and the acting wasn't bad. Just don't expect an overall special film.
I thought it was a little better than the first film, but that's not saying much considering the first one was a "SO-SO" quality film.
The Pros: Very little down time without action. Features many of the beloved GI Joe characters. Solid action and acting.
The Cons: Bad writing. Absurd plot lines. Seem to lean heavily on the 3D effects at times. Cobra Commanders voice reminds me more of Darth Vader than the Cobra Commander I grow up watching on the classic cartoon.
All in all: if you're a GI Joe fan(especially if you somewhat enjoyed the first film), check it out, for anyone else, you're not going to miss much by not seeing this.

I took my two youngest grandchildren to see GI Joe: Retaliation 3D. My 10 year-old granddaughter and I liked it. My 13 year-old grandson said it was so-so. Not what I expected.
The movie did show a lot of battle violence. I liked the action. I wasn't bored during the movie.
The actors were good. No deep characterization, though. That's okay.
Typical plot for this kind of movie. Nothing special. That's okay, too.
Guess I just like action movies.

This is not your typical action movie with lotsa boring talk leading up to a grand finale, there's action building up to more action & then the grand finale!!! Oh yeah; that mountain fight scene & the opening credits are the only thing worth watching in 3D (save your money)

I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie. It was very enjoyable and would recommend it to my friends.family. I'll admit I was sometimes confused at who was the good guy and who was the bad guy.
