I sense much anger in this board.

Did Sigma 6 kick your dog or something?
I'm still mostly indifferent to the movie so far. I'm still going to see it, maybe not on opening day, but soon after. It certainly won't be the worst movie I've ever seen (A philipino/Puerto Rican parody of First Blood wins that award). My advice is to just Chill Out. I love indiana Jones, and didn't see #4 since the trailers made it look like a standard Hollywood action piece and not the pulp-influenced adventures of the first 3 films. Gi Joe looks like it's going to be a standard Hollywood action piece because, well, that is what GI Joe is well suited for. As much as I would love to see a Ridley Scott/Clint Eastwood directed gritty and realistic war flick for the franchise, it's never going to happen.
If this flick turns out to be bad, I'll shrug my shoulders, buy the toy tie ins (many of which look nifty), and not buy the DVD when it comes out.

How retarded. So, if those suits can't help them defeat Cobra, what's the point? Or wait, if they need the suits to defeat Cobra, then why do they need to be the "best team of operatives?" If they're so good, why the accelerator suits? They could be in any movie. It's like, some writer or FX guys comes up with a cool idea and those involved just find some movie in which to insert it. I mean, it's ridiculous. Joe had super tight weapons per each character's specialty. Isn't that the technical edge they had above standard soldiers. WHEN-WILL-THE-STUDIOS-GET-THE- IDEA! Treat the source material correctly and success follows. Christopher Nolan knows a little about that concept, Steven Sommers... not so much. Sommers should watch GI Joe: Resolute and see how a real GI Joe movie should be made.
What the hell was Joseph Gordon-Levitt thinking when he agreed to do this movie? "Where do I cash my paycheck?" probably. This makes Transformers look like a fucking masterpiece.
And in order to shoot the Eiffel Tower with a long-range missile, you need to break into a building, kill its inhabitants and shoot off of its roof? Fantastic story telling...
Oh well. Count me out. I'm sure this movie will make millions from the semi-retarded. I, for one, will find something a little less insulting to watch.

This is a great point...it's like asking that question from the bud light commericals of old "Why ask why, try bud dry".
Baroness and Emo Storm Shadow aren't the cool kids so they have to get out more and hang out in cool French design firms (hence the Baroness compliment to the lady with the "nice shoes") cause her momy would not buy her them or she just can't afford them on he MARS paycheck. The place is obviously owned and run by Emo Storm Shadow cause he can waltz right in and kill the 2 guards and no one in the buidling even notices sine he has Racket Ball scheduled with several of them after the missile launch (and no one calls the cops? Somehow Marlane Joeblow Wayans and Duke show up?). Baroness takes the elevator and I guess Emo SS flies through the invisible hole in the floor that Duke finds to get on the outside of the buidling to go watch the missile with his wanna be sweet heart un-cool girl Baroness on the roof.
Emo SS then totally ruins the Hasbro Board meeting about making more Cobra Commanders for retail launch since it is the best location in all of France to fire a missile from (why he did not go to the roof is odd as well maybe its un-cool kids misdirection to throw off the mighty OCP Robocop wannabe joes). The Marlane comes leaping in slowmo from 35 feet away, crashed into Emo SS just as the missile fires...is launched another 15-20feet down the hall and through a solid wall, which is not shown but I bet storm shadow leaps up and starts running around looking for his Tommy Hilfiger leather mask cause his Emo hair gets all ruffled up....
Then the Eiffel tower gets eatin alive by nanites from Emo SS's super soaker and then the long drawn street chase ensues with Ass suits hopping around like crazed loons and Snake Eyes looking for his long lost EMo friend to give him a big wet kiss with his lips!
(if your still in the movie at this point) you got just a few more big scenes before these 30-45min scenes eat away whats left of the movie, only 30-40mins left to tell the rest...still waiting to exhal on those since we only have 6-7 more 5 min scenes of 2-4 more big scenes tops till the credits roll...

This movie looks to be pretty much on level with Space Mutiny.
With more money allotted for special effects.

the trying on/out scene looked like Iron Man, the flipping down the street from the missiles looked straight lifted from Transformers when Ironhide flips over Starscream's (or was it Brawl's) rockets, the scene where the crash through the bus was decent, but reminded me of Transformers when Prime and Megatron crash through the building (a shot i still find pretty jaw-dropping) and now this new scene with the backflip up on too the roof looks straight-up out of Spider-man. It's getting ridiculous playing 'where'd we crib this shot from' ~ you could probably make a drinking game out of it...
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon
