Due to the performance of 1986’s “Transformers: The Movie”; this movie was made direct -to-video instead; but even still the cinematic quality is still present! The heroic G.I. Joe action force must oppose the ruthless Cobra organization that has secretly allied with a subterranean reptilian people who were their founders. It goes without saying this is a better G.I. Joe movie then what the live-action movies ever did, thanks to its 80’s nostalgia and American influence. Is the movie perfect, well no not really; is it fun, very much so. And of course due to the backlash of Optimus Prime’s death, Duke slips into a coma instead; which felt kind of cheap considering you can still tell that he is dead. And the reveal of Cobra Commander as a snake is beyond strange. But hey we still get plenty of action along the way. A good recommendation for the fans!
