My 8 year old and I were excited to see this movie. His favorite Joe is Duke, lets just say he was PO'd for most of the movie, I wasnt to happy either. THEY KILLED OFF DUKE! The Movie was pretty good if you leave out the fact that THEY KILLED OFF DUKE, I will definitely get it when it comes out on iTunes. Im sure they will have a sequel after this one, hopefully they will bring back Duke.

This should have been awesome however spoiler alert the Joes get double crossed most die. Then the rest was about rebuilding. It was entertaining but with good writing it could have been a classic. Lady Jay definitely a plus in this movie whenever the movie was slowing down they would put her into something skimpy.

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.

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!!
