I didn't like it at all. There are already some many sci-fi type of movies out there, that I don't want to see another one. I really didn't want this Joe movie be completely unrealistic.
Movies have become only about making a bigger explosition, and the people with more super human powers than the other guys movie. Sorry, but I tired of all the movies that are for the lowest common denominator.
Now, to be at least somewhat positive, I'll say that I think the movie will probably do fairly well. It's hard to say how the toys will sell. The movie has to be way over the top if they are going to attract kids to the toy line, and it looks like it is, so the toys may sell.
With retail in such bad shape right now, it may be hard to have Star wars, Transformers and GI Joe all selling well, so the timing may not be good. Transformers should have come out last summer, because it could steal a lot of Joes thunder in the theaters, and at the toy aisles.

I hate it for a myriad of reasons, but I'll use this post to focus in on just one: the horrible looking Cobra Troopers or Neo-Vipers or whatever they're called in the movie. Why did they pass on the classic look of the 1982 Cobra Trooper or 1986 Cobra Viper? Heck, even if they stayed true to the look of the 2002 GvC Neo-Viper it wouldn't have sucked as bad as what's in the movie.

Yeah, I'm impressed with the trailer.
I thought the part with SE running on top of the flipping car was silly, but hey, I loved Live Free or Die Hard. With all it's shenanigans, I guess that's not too bad.
I'll still expect the worst and hope for the best anyway.

There are 30,000 other threads where we voiced out opinions, but I'll say it once again...it played out EXACTLY like NukeTheFridge said, and I liked it. It's a reboot, I already know there will be plot points that piss me off, but all in all I honestly believe I will enjoy this film.

The only thing I like in the trailer is it looks like Baroness is going to be awesome

I thought it had some of a similar feel with the cartoon: the Eiffel Tower being decimated by a Cobra (er, Destro's) super weapon. The quick shot of SE vs SS was nice. And yeah, baroness comes off better in motion than in stills. I wish it had the more military feel of old ARAH than the power-suit/black armor (Sigma 6) look that is popular now. But that's really my only gripe. But I suppose like Transformers, this movie caters to both old and young fans.

my wife is online yesterday and looks at me and says "jason did you know they are making a gi joe movie?"
i thought that was funny. she would ask me if i knew?
i told her i can show her the trailer because she did say she hasnt seen it yet, she just heard about it at work from some of the guys, she works for a trucking company. so if truckers are talking about it then i can probobly say it did its job.
check out my store for great deals

Only saw the pregame spot on NBC.
Was wondering, did anyone see the trailer and think, "Well, maybe it won't be so bad after all..."
And 30 seconds later think about becoming a Mary Kay lady?
Or was that just a regional thing?

TF2 has 6 weeks to cool off before Joe hits. That should be long enough for Joe to pick up the momentum, especially if TF2 does well.
