On one side, it's very much a video game-like plot with lots of things blowing up, the Rock's Roadblock being large and in charge, and Lee Byung-hun's Stormshadow being a hot asian male with swords. On the other, I enjoyed it a lot more than "The Rise of Cobra" since Retaliation wasn't trying to be a romantic drama within a military action film. The lack of a cheesy Pop song as a send off also helped.
The movie is not exactly high art or memorable, but it's worth a viewing if you're looking for a distraction, though I felt that 3D was wasted on it.

LOVED IT! I really like the real feel of the characters. The action is exactly what I was looking for and I left feeling SATISFIED!! This was an excellent movie, the plot was good, liked the twists on who's who - good writing! If you love action movies then this is a MUST SEE!!!!! Oh yeah...if you see this in 3D as I did, hold onto your seat! Definitely going to get this one for my DVD collection! GO JOE!

I loved the movie, I feel it was full of action as expected and I was NOT disappointed. I'm a huge fan of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis so I was happy to see them all in the same movie. I was entertained throughout and would see it again...I'm hoping for a sequel!

Good film. Lots of action. Stayed to end of credits, hoping to see something more to set up sequel, hoping there was another scene with a Joe character. Some things left unexplained. Unlike previous film which had International members, this one focused on US team. Some character moments from previous film are expanded/explained.
