I needed to change my mind and thought let's go and see a stupid movie, turn my brain off and enjoy some special effects. Well, this movie was so stupid (weak lines, actors do not even seem to be into it) that even with my low expectations I was really disappointed.
If you're very young like 14 years old, you might find this fun.

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.

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.

Great action movie! Really good visual effects and fight scenes. Definitely better than the first one. My 11 year old son loved it. Not sure seeing it in 3D is a must.

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.
