Great movie, nail-biting cliff scenes, Dwayne Johnson really steals the show! I thought there would be a teaser after the credits, no such luck! Go see it and hope they make another!

Took my teen boys and a good time was had by all. Loved the first one. Second was good and like some of the new Joe's.

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!

GI Joe Redemption was labeled and charged by the Kips Bay Theater as being shown in 3D but was shown in plan old boring 2d. Is this the kind of business you have reduced yourselves to doing business with? Not sure if I will ever use Fandango again or never go to Kips Bay again but last night was not a good experience in any aspect. I would expect a complete credit at the very least. You figure it out.

The best thing about this movie: Every scene with Bruce Willis in it. The sword fighting scenes are also pretty good, particularly the one on the side of the cliff.
Everything else was kind of meh. Seeing futuristic helicopters and stuff was neat but not exceptional. Maybe I've seen too many action movies, but there wasn't as much "omg that was awesome!" as I was hoping for.
All the good guy characters are new and weren't in the first movie, which I didn't like either, the exception being the guy that you never see his face and he doesn't talk (Snake Eyes). I'm all for new characters, but what about the old? Sheesh. That said, the new characters did very well and were fun to watch interact.
There was one thing I really didn't like, though. In 3D, they kept throwing things directly at you instead of just slightly past you, very annoying.
If you liked the first movie you'll probably like this one, but don't expect miracles. It's not bad, but it's not great either.
