So when i say sub par thats referring to the people who are mor actors than stuntmen. Ray park is good choice and he's cool but given the silent nature of his character his impact as a character will be more so in body language than speaking...as it should be.

I will be seeing it because it's GI Joe. 'Nuff said.

I will likely see it as early as I can, tho with very mixed feelings. I have been a Joe junkie since I bought my first figure in '82 and issue 1 of the comic. I love the idea, but I have to agree that there are a LOT of unecessary changes that make little or no sense. Aside from that, I am still utterly mortified about Ripcord/Marlon Wayans. I kept hearing "Oh, he can be a serious actor", but then I read th novelization ad watched more trailers. Sadly, despite all my hopes, Marlon Wayans is indeed playing Marlon Wayans and trying to throw his own healthy dose of garbage slapstick in our faces.

The movie uses GI Joe characters, a GI Joe plot, it's set in a GI Joe universe and it's titled GI Joe. But it's not GI Joe. Ok. Got it.

I'm seeing it as soon as possible. I might go to this GI Joe Movie Charity Premiere - Raving Toy Maniac - The Latest News and Pictures from the World of Toys . I think the movie will be great in most ways. The characters are linked much better than in the comics. If they kept the plot the way it was this movie would suck so f'ing bad. The ARAH character plot is not good at all for a movie. AT ALL. The movie has basically the same plot, just better character development. I would've liked to see some more GI Joe esc costumes however these work. There's nothing wrong with changes if they work, and these do.

I don't like a lot of what I've seen in the trailers but I'm going to give it a chance. I'll part with $10 to see it and it'll be an excuse for some heart attack-inducing movie popcorn.
It can't possibly be inferior to Dragonball Evolution.
Or even Revenge of the Fallen for that matter.
Eiffel Tower attack scene, or at least the spirit of it
Nano-mite plot (this interests me, though I wonder how it'll play out-I've avoided spoilers)
Character appearances/design/outfits, especially the Vipers and Storm Shadow
Ineffectual slapstick humor
No COBRA symbols? I am hoping these show up at the end of the film at least...
Action movie cliches (obligatory car chase, obligatory jumping off a building, etc.)
Dialogue (what I've seen) that comes across to me as watered-down and weak...can't use too many big words 'cause you don't want the humanoids scratching their heads wondering what a character just said...
Re-inventing Ripcord and other characters...I could not care less.
GIJOE as international team...would prefer American or at least have GIJOE be the American branch of an international team but it's GIJOE, it needs to have some American patriotic elements.

I won't be seeing this until it's on FX or something...Why?...Because it will be just like what happened to Aeon Flux...They used the same names, same concept, same this and that, and even Peter Chung was a slight consultant on the film(Though he had the balls to say THIS IS NOT AEON FLUX)and it was still NOT Aeon Flux...They could'a slapped any name on it, and gotten away with just making some generic futuristic action-thriller. That's the same thing I see happening here, but if it's your bag, by all means have a nice friday night.
HEUTE G.I.JOE, MORGEN DIE WELT!

I will likely be seeing this on Opening Night or shortly there after. The local Comic Shop is putting up a booth at a theater here and I was invited to bring along some of my customs to show.
So I will likely see it that day. Why do I want to see it? Despite what your argument says, I Believe this IS a GI Joe movie or it wouldn't be titled as such.
It is just as much GI Joe movie as the X-Men was an X-men movie. Sure they change stuff but they always do. I think it is going to be better than a lot of people think it is.
Am I expecting the Godfather? No... but will it be as good or better than say Iron Man? Yes indeed and I Loved Iron Man.
A Gem of That Size Answers ALL my questions.
