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!!

...Whoa nelly. After waiting four years, I was expecting a much deeper film. What do I mean by "deep"? I mean plot-driven, visually captivating, and a lot of character development. I was merely satisfied by the first movie, "Rise of Cobra". It was action-packed, but it left a lot of loose ends and several opportunities for further growth. I was hoping to see that.
What I got instead was a cheesy, overhyped, pyrotechnic-driven nightmare, with Dwayne Johnson, not Channing Tatum, at the helm. The Rock uses all of his WWE acting skills to pummel the daylights out of all hope I had for this movie. The plot was so very outlandish and ridiculous, even for a GI Joe sequel. It left me with a sense of incredulity that I particularly hate when leaving the theater.
Bruce Willis was the only redeeming quality; his humor and mere presence made me feel like I only wasted half of my movie ticket expense. But otherwise, don't bother on this one.

Just saw it and although it might not match up to some other comic book movies, this was an action thrill ride from beginning to end. The cast was better in this installment thus the acting was better also. This won't win any awards but it will fill your time in the theater with an action packed movie.

The entire movie started off on the wrong foot. Too much time had passed between the two stories. What were the "nano wars"? There was no tie-in to the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and no resolution of any of the threads left open from the end of G.I. Joe 1. What happened to Baroness? Was she cured? Where did Ripcord Scarlett, and General Hawk go? The first movie had great production values and special effects. This had nothing more than a few explosions, cheesy jokes and a thin to nonexistent story. Don't waste your money. I can't imagine how bad the movie would have been if they didn't delay the release for almost a year. Utter crap.
