This movie was not worth the price of 2 IMAX 3D tickets. I wish I had waited for it to come out on cable. I did not like the story but it had a lot of good action scenes but that's all.

If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the entire movie. Not one surprise left and I knew every fight that was going to happen. Pretty much on par with the first one, which is sad because I had high hopes for this one to be much much better than that.

Great special affects, Johnson tries really hard, but the story doesn't help him much. This is a great candidate for the Old Saturday Afternoon series that went out of style years ago. Again the special affects and Johnson really did great but the rest was SO-SO. The story idea was good, but it petered out rather early and was left to the special affects to carry the show.

As a die-hard action fan (pun intended), I'm very critical of films that don't deliver or do deliver, but only the highlights you've already seen in the trailers. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a heart-pounding roller coaster of non-stop action that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to end.
Part of the story was disappointing to me, but I'm sure the writer had their reasons.
Like martial arts? Like suspense? Like military-ish films? Like movies about heros? If so, go see this film. You won't be disappointed.

It was so much better than the first one. The Rock was awesome.
