For the ladies: Before I saw the movie, I was thinking, this is my opportunity to see "All the Men I've loved before," and I felt "ooohh, what a dream come true?!" But , I then saw the movie and should've known it was going to suck if Channing is Duke. I kept waiting for Bruce to come out to be his Die Hard Self (I dont want to spoil it for you). The Rock who used to be so appealing just appeared to be morphing into an Arnold (sad to say).
For the Action Movie Buffs: I call it, "so-so." There was a nice ninja action part but other than that, go watch it on DVD OR on discounted movie tickets.
As far as the writing? It's your classic kind of GI JOE.

This movie was fun to watch and had one of the most creative fight scens I think I've ever seen. Don't go in thinking it should comapre to something like Avengers but we had a great time, it is exactly what it should be, a good time, action flick.

The storyline was a little hard to follow for someone like me who does not follow the GI Joe story/cartoons/comic books/etc...closely. There seem to be gaps. I enjoyed the two previous movies much more. If they make another movie we'll still go see it. All in all it was what I expected, lots of action and stuff blowing up. It was still pretty cool.

This movie was less suspenseful than the last one and suffers from it. The actions scenes were good but It lack the large scale I was hoping for. Plus the Previews gave too much away.

Just came back from watching GI Joe: Retaliation.... It was an awesome movie hands down and was 10 times better then the first. Great acting from everyone especially Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson! I loved the new breakout star D.J. Cotrona as Flint. This movie had great Special Effects and a solid plot that just blows your mind! The fight scenes were incredible and my overall favorite scene was the ending showdown between Dwayne Johnson and Ray Stevenson's characters.. The only downside is the waiting a whole extra year for the movie release... Channing Tatum's 10 extra mins was not worth the extra year long wait (yes he dies and no he doesn't come back) I believe this is a movie for all ages and was worth every penny spent! Can't wait for the 3rd one!!
