IMAX 3D

Better than the first one...

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.

Not as Good as the First

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.

Fan of Action Films

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.

Kips Bay Ripoff

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.
