So a little while back, like 2 weeks ago, I totally slated the G.I. Joe movie. That was fun. When the trailer for that film came out it looked a bit rubbish but in a guilty pleasure kind of way, Barring the robo-suits it looked like a pretty decent approximation of G.I. Joe. The film was utter donkey balls. After the link is the trailer for G.I. Joe Retaliation. See the first film made quite a decent amount of money at the Box Office and I’m sure the toys have done OK too. Clearly realising that most people over the age of 5 that saw the first film would have thought it was pants the producers decided, wisely, that they need some real star power. In comes The Rock and Bruce Willis to help distract people from spending half the film trying to figure out if that’s Channing Tatum of Sam Worthington in the lead role. Follow the link to see the trailer for yourself!
Actually looks fairly enjoyable. that cliff side fight sequence should be fairly unique and is hopefully well staged. Something the first film failed to do with any of it’s action scenes. It’s notable that there’s a lack of members of the original cast returning here. As far as I can tell there’s no Sienna Miller, Marlon Wayans, Christopher Eccleston or Joseph Gordon Levitt. Looks like there’s a Cobra Commander though that actually looks like the one from the comics and 80s cartoon. We’ll see if it redeems the pure awful of the original in 6 months I guess. For now, here’s my review of the first film
