Thank god! They saved this franchise! All I can say is forget everything you knew about the last GI Joe because they managed to give us comic fans and action movie fans what we love.... A good dang film about a story we love. Action is insane! Do not sleep on this movie!!! Just great job, great plot, great come back, can't wait for the next one.

I didnt go it with high expectations, however it was entertaining and action packed.. Bruce Wilis showing up was a good boost. Good movie for a dad to go with his kids as well. Good vs evil.

There's so much testosterone in this film it's a wonder the FDA didn't get involved in its production. Yes guys, this one's for you. The screenplay is dumbed down to the level of the basic 8 year old's mentality. There's nothing but violence, murder, explosions and fancy death toys BUT sadly (Quentin Jerome Tarantino) not one drop of blood, thereby giving it the robust PG13 flavor, even when slicing faces open right there in front of the camera. Yes mom and dad, this is the same dosage of violence to be found in most video games so there you have it...the perfect Saturday afternoon outing for weekend dads and sons, and one big excuse for mom to stay home with her thoughts, unless of course she just can't resist beef, albeit rancid and a bit difficult to swallow. Bad film? Nope. Good film? Not really. Worth a ticket purchase. Yes, if for no other reason than to count the number of times you've seen that scene before, all strung together into one big formulaic mess of a movie.

It was a good action packed movie. I loved the new characters and how the fix Cobra commander but there was issues I didnt like. First was the plot or story, it was just too plain and stupid how the idea to kill all but 3 Joes to take down Cobra, had to wait till the end to even get a epic fighting scenes and exploiding crap. Cobra Commanders voice was like Bane from Dark Knight Rises, half the stuff he said you had no idea what he spoke. Lack of background on the new Joe characters and what happen to the other ones from the first.
Other then the plot being a let down and minor problem with Commanders voice, the rest was perfect.

Reviews have been mixed but decided to go see it this weekend. Liked it better than the first! Kicks off movie in motion,and stays that way, also introduced more characters that were interesting, love what they did with Storm Shadow. Can't wait to see what develops with him from here. Will miss Duke, but it gave the characters drive and incentive. Exciting and non-stop. If you like a fun- fast paced movie with a feel good ending despite all, this one's for you. Oh, and Bruce. He was great! Really liked the lack of language in this one. There was some, small words, but nothing hard core, which made it a prime movie for my 11 & 14 yr olds. We need some good "hero" movies, This is one. Go see it. Well worth it.
