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.

I loved the action, and Mr. Johnson... OH MY!!!. Bruce Willis isn't a spring chicken, but I love all of his action films. Mr. Willis did a great job. There was one portion of the movie where stunts were performed that I've never seen before (don't want to spoil it for you), you'll know what I'm talking about when you see the movie. It's a must see in 3D. I found myself ducking and dodging, various items and bodies, throughout most of the film. Don't miss this one.

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 plot is overly predictable and the dialogue is stunted. Overall the only part of this movie that was good were the ninja fighting scenes. visually stunning. but thats it. the last one was not this bad. i say pass and wait for the DVD. The 3-D version of this movie is completely unnecessary.
