please explain that.
that was very easy to not only explain but understand. nothing contrary or hypocritical about it.
maybe they should rename the movie so the audience doesn't know G.I. Joe exists because it is supposed to be so top secret, and if the audience sees the uniforms and hears them talking about it that inherently means every person living within the film must know it too. you can't communicate something with the audience without revealing it to every person within the movie is what you are saying. that is the asinine position that your argument hinges on. yes, and it is asinine. just because something exists in the move that the audience knows and sees doesn't mean every possible person alive within the movie world knows it too. that is just dumb beyond words to come to that conclusion, and yet you continue to defend that concept.

can't believe this thread is still going... I stopped reading on page 6.
The only thing I want to see is a picture of the camo w/ GI Joe in it... I never noticed that in any trailers or stills....

Destro (and we don't even know if Hawk knows that McCullen is Destro and is the head terrorist at this point, the clip doesn't show anything to indicate it, we know who Destro is, but does Hawk in this part of the movie?) says "who did you say your unit is" and Hawk answers "I didn't."
How is that alluding anything? It's answering the question with Hawk just saying he didn't say what his unit was. Hawk isn't hiding anything. He could just as easily say "My unit is the boy scouts" or anything.
Sorry, but your point is... well, to be as nice as possible.. you have no point.
Just because they were the camoflage in the base doesn't prove anything to anyone that didn't already know the unit exists. It's not like Destro is staring at the camo pattern and can go "aha, you're in G.I. Joe".
It's like taking 2 plus 2 and trying to make it add up to 5.
The evidence to support your claim of hyprocrisy doesn't exist. It's been pointed out numerous times in this thread.

I know I am just beating a dead horse here but...
Again, the definition of hypocricy:
–noun, plural -sies.
1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.
2. a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
3. an act or instance of hypocrisy.
1175–1225; ME ipocrisie < OF < LL hypocrisis < Gk hypókrisis play acting, equiv. to hypokr(nesthai) to play a part, explain (hypo- hypo- + krnein to distinguish, separate) + -sis -sis; h- (reintroduced in 16th century) < L and Gk
1. See deceit.
I honestly do not see how what was described in the original post fits the above posted definition.
Waxing clowns and smoking fools since 1979.

It reminds of one of the few good scenes in Attack of the Clones when Obi Wan and Jango Fett have their exchange in Fett's room on Kamino. Neither one is revealing anything to the other, yet they both know exactly what's going on. Five minutes later, they're fighting. It's actually a fairly common dramatic tool used in movies.
