Because … why not? Poor G.I. Joe has been ridiculed for months now, with fans never really giving the film a fighting chance even though trailers showed exactly the type of movie one would expect from something based primarily on a Hasbro toy line. Like with Transformers before it, you're going to get a big, dumb (but fun) action-adventure that won't exactly win any screenwriting awards, but it sure as heck will entertain the kids (and the child inside all of us).
