I make no secret of my affection for the big-time goofball matinee flick called G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. As a matter of fact, here's a direct quote from my review!
"Credit to director Stephen Sommers, who (after befouling my brain with Van Helsing and The Mummy Returns) finds an amicable tone for The Rise of Cobra, and maintains his spirited approach throughout. The flick is jam-packed with bloodless PG-13 violence, but it also shows off a dry sense of humor and a playful visual spark that indicates a director who's actively trying to turn out a popcorn flick with a little style."
So that's that. Plus the sequel (aka G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation) has all sorts of amusing things in its corner: A) Bruce Willis. B) The Rock. C) director John Chu. D) Zombieland screenwriters Ryan Wernick and Rhett Reese. E) No Marlon Wayans.
The flick will explode testosterone all over the multiplexes on June 29. Until then, here's trailer number one:

G.I. Joe, Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson
I'm excited. I've always been a huge G. I. Joe fan and even though the first movie was not too well received, I still like it and I have a feeling that I will like this one as well :)
Don't mind checking out the new G.I. Joe II Retaliation coming out Summer 2012 it looks a real sizzler. I like Actors Dwayne Johnson/The Rock and Bruce Willis and Ray Stevenson which is the sole source that's drawing me to see this new lethal flick. Awesome!!
