There is a lot of action but also some extremely unlikely action as well. I saw it in Imax and that was fun but it was only so so.

One spoiler in this review, beware ;)
Some of the cooler vehicles made a appearance this time, a water moccasin !! and yes its great lookin, fangs and the new hiss' are pretty cool too.
Spoiler alert................................................ Channing Tatum is DEAD !!! YAY I love Duke but Tatum was terrible, so glad he is done with my Joe!! Seems like they have chosen to loosely follow the cartoon series Renegades which is kind of a bummer, limits the characters avaliable but it was way worth seeing if you are a Joe fan !

G.I. Joe: Retaliation was a fun action movie that felt more like a summer blockbuster then an early spring release. The action was over the top which made for a good ride; However the cheesy dialog just showed that the producers would've rather spend the films budget on big explosions and hasbro inspired vehicles over second draft for script. The 3D was fun, though you wouldn't miss anything if you decide to save a few dollars and see a non-3D version. All in all much better than the first film and worth a watch if you're in the mood for a good action film.

BIG disappointment. The first G.I.Joe movie was waaaayyyyyy better than this turd. I found myself annoyed several times on how cheesy this movie was. The only reason I'm not giving this a "NO" rating is b/c some of the action sequences were entertaining.

based on the trailer is looked like it'd be the joe movie we deserved and yes i'm so happy they delayed this movie to convert it to 3D because it really added to the movie but as an overall movie it was....great i mean Jon chu did a fine job at directing i actually think he did a very good job because there were some scenes i thought were really cool for example that mountain scene was mind blowing especially on the huge IMAX screen. I thought the story was simple and the action was grand and thats the way a G.I. Joe movie should be. The acting was good i didn't feel the RZA had to be in it but he wasn't bad. One con that i thought this movie had was the use of Lady Jaye she was a little underused i was going to give it a go but it's the most fun i've had at the movies this year so far and the chemistry between Roadblock,lady jaye and flint is amazing and i can't think of a better word to describe this movie besides awesome,it's over the top fun that i couldn't just give a so-so
