always keeping in mind the target audience for films, i understand that a g.i. joe flick isn't going for a massive storyline or oscar-winning acting job.. for what it is, it is decent.. the action is alright but i think the ninja action gets a little ridiculous, even for ninja standards.. overall plot is very comic bookish, which is fitting and doesn't feel contrived or ridiculous.. the female character makes for nice eye candy as well, and they don't overdo it like a lot of movies.. heck, the bar can't be any lower after Rhianna in battleship, right?.. there also is a lingering feeling in the movie that they are going to do something extremely cliche and they do not, which kept it from a red review..

It's a messy kind of movie. The director probably had the mentality that as long as there's lots of shoot-'em-dead or knock-'em-off scenes for this kind of movie, it'd be alright. Well.... some clapped, those who were just there for the action, and not too analytical or critical. Other than that, it was just not possible to first follow, not to understand the whys. One can argue, you just don't need to know what's going on. Well.... a lot of effort was put into producing it I'm sure, like those mountain chase scenes. They somehow looked very real as they swung from one side to another on the face of the precipitous mountain. How they did it is probably not on everybody's mind. That's how good studio creations on the computer have become, fool-proof. Otehr than that, let me put it this way - even Bruce Lee they thought of putting in, just to rope some fans of his in? He was just a "filler". There were good moments, don't get me wrong. It just was a poorly put together flick.

A better version of G.I. Joe than the last movie, but still not the action movie most fans want. Some interesting twists, and some very good action scenes. This isn't The Avengers, but a good movie for a fun afternoon.

Didn't see the movie in Imax or 3D as it wasn't available in any of the theaters that I wanted to go to but you couldn;t tell the difference...Great Action, Loved The Fight Scenes and Special Effects...
