So fetishistic about high-powered weapons that it qualifies as an NRA wet dream, G.I. Joe: Retaliation pretty accurately reflects the...

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
It's well-executed technocratic action fluff. But it did leave me buzzed rather than drained.

USA Today

By Scott Bowles
A more sure-footed shoot-'em-up that finds some heart, wit and perhaps enough momentum to spawn a formidable action franchise.

Slant Magazine

Instead of long takes, which are lovingly utilized in Step Up 3D, Jon M. Chu opts for increasing volatility in the editing room.

The directive behind this sequel, clearly, was non-stop action. Let's think about that phrase a second. Do we really want our action movies...

The G.I. Joe team is back, and most of their sophomore movie adventure, G.I. Joe Retaliation, is as bland as their name and as subtle as an...

How funny that Pryce, a tweedy Brit playing a bad guy, should be the one person doing anything remotely heroic for this dud.

What's the difference between an action figure and an action star? Very little in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which features no performances of...

Not worth the money

By MadDawg24
Okay, let's be honest...G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra didn't raise the bar that high in regards to a G.I Joe Movie. But I'm certain that Retaliation just lowered that bar. There were a couple of good...

I have seen the previews for this movie many times over the past few weeks of going to the show to see other movies, and was really excited and looking forward to seeing this, the action looked like...

I am a child of the 80’s and a huge GI JOE ARAH fan from the beginning. I love the toys and the stories written by Larry Hama that were found in the Marvel comics back in the day. RETALIATION picks up...

GI Joe: Retaliation

By Magik3
Loved it! I've always been a big GI Joe fan so I was excited about the movie. I miss some of the old crew (Ripcord and Scarlett) but otherwise it was great!...

Then: I remember watching the first half of the first GI Joe and thinking how bad the acting, plot, dialogue, and fighting were. Then...the heavens opened up and poured glorious action down upon the...

Great movie

By jaynvius
The movie was awesome. I love seeing Snake Eyes in action again. Bringing Storm Shadow back into play was pretty epic. My only complaint was that they killed of Duke way in the...

GI Joe Retaliation and a Shocking Turn of Events

By vampirefan12
I don't want to give anything away to anyone who hasn't seen the movie. But, there is a shocking turn of events near the beginning of the movie. It changed how I felt about the movie afterwards...

What happened to the great cast?! lol

By bonsalljen
There are a lot of plot twists in this action packed "shoot em up". Dont try too hard to follow the plot or you will get lost. Just go with it and take it for what it is but unless you are a die...

no very interesting

By marivv66
For an action movie it was not too exiting. I actually was bored a lot, not enough continuous action, story line misleading. Thought the rock was too monotone....

GI JOE is Entertaining!

By SeanOfDead
GI JOE is what it is suppose to do and that is entertain. It will not win a Oscar, not that type of movie. They killed Duke too early, but they must have their reasons. The Japanese Ninja half blind...
