Wait for DVD release, if that even...
In this REBOOT, All of the elements that made the 1st release in 2009 great are KIA.
Cobra Commander is busted out of prison "which is no longer the Joe controlled carrier, but some very cheap looking hole in the ground" and leaves Destro behind saying "your off the team". Why would he of went to the trouble of using the nanites on him in the 1st movie and enslaving him to his will, then not use him?
Duke gets wasted in the opening act and The Baroness is MIA, so forget the built up romance and question on if the Joe's will eliminate the mind control nanites Cobra Commander injected her with.
The general is MIA, Duke's buddy Ripcord is MIA and Duke is now apparently best buddies with Roadblock and his kids.
Scarlett is MIA, so forget seeing that babe in her tight leather outfit again.
All this, plus the fact the movie was all action, no real story made it incredibly hard to sit through. I think the only reason I did watch to the end was to see just how bad it really was.
