FW MOVIE PICK: G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA

gijoe01-640x297

Like Transformers, I knew very little back then about the G.I. Joe brand; so I didn’t know what to expect from this flick other then the mess I was about to witness first hand! An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, operating out of The Pit, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer. Considering this is a Stephen Sommer’s film its exactly what you’d expect; an over the top action flick with cartoony CGI and bland characters. Also there’s something off about the futuristic approach to the G.I. Joe uniforms or the Cobra Commander mask that looks nothing like the cartoon. Or making the Baroness, who was changed from an East European noble in the comics to Duke’s brainwashed ex-girlfriend in the film. However I did find enjoyment in the Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow storyline. A fair recommendation for fans!
