I wasnt disappointed in ROC, it wasn't good but i didnt think it was as horrible as some of you people think it is. I actually didnt flip out because CC wasnt CC until the end because, you know, the title says RISE OF COBRA.
Hell, after seeing Retaliation i say that ROC had a tremendously better depiction of CC. In Ret all that Cobra did was go, "I'm Cobra Commander, MWA AHAHAHHAH!!" Somehow Firefly had the idea that they needed a Commander yet CC didnt do ANYTHING. Zartan stole the show for me. That scene with the world leaders for me was THE SCENE of the movie. That scene came the closest to anything JOE in that whole movie. It was a 10 out of 10 show of super villainy.
Seriously... in ROC Cobra Commander WAS super evil, in charge, and had a plan. In this one he just walks around for a few seconds after that first escape scene. Ret did not need CC at all, he was there for no other reason than to sell a toy. And, yes, i know this thing is to sell toys but dont have the main bad guy do NOTHING.
