I just got home from seeing it and I really enjoyed it. Was it a great movie? No it wasn't but it was very entertaining. Would I watch it again? Yes and I'll even buy the DVD. It is what it is...a GI Joe movie. I wasn't expecting it to be a war epic like Saving Private Ryan.
Yeah some scenes were reminiscent of Star Wars but why is that a bad thing. I agree with what one reviewer said, this movie was what I saw in my mind when I was a kid playing with my Joes.

Just Watched, I am a very die hard Joe fan. Although I would have chosen a couple of different characters , I think the overall fantasy and action that we all have come to know came through. We must remember this isa re-imagining not an end to specific era but a culmination of all era's. And most of all for my nephews it is an introduction to a magic filled world that has kept us all entertained ( whether good or bad) for many years, as well as creating more collectors for our much loved hobby. I will say that the X6-Suits should end with the first film. Yo Joe!!

I'm not a die-hard joe fan - I liked the cartoons, I read some of the comics, but I'm a red blooded Transformers fan through and through.
With that said, I went to see this movie yesterday and was very impressed. It was an awesome ride from start to finish! I thought the casting turned out to be very good all around (they seemed true to the characters to me). My main gripe was that the technology the Joes (and cobra) had was way too far beyond what the militaries had. Sure, it can be more high-tech, but the extent was way too much. Oh well, it was still fun and I can't wait for sequels.

From the movie's announcement a few years back I was very skeptical and was certain that I would not enjoy the movie in any capacity. Having seen it last night I can say that it was enjoyable and far surpassed my expectations and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who might be on the fence. If you are or were a fan of the G.I. Joe cartoon or comic you will definitely find something to like here. It's strange but I actually find myself eagerly awaiting the sequel(s) as I was definitely left wanting more.

Iwent in with extremely low expectations and found myself presently suprised. It isnt the gi joe i grew up with but its an entertaining movie (more so than TF2 actually).
Overall id give it a " C ". Honestly nothing could have convinced me to give it a higher score unless the movie was closer to the early Marvel comics run or Resolute.
If i were 10yrs old id have given it a " B".

In retrospect Cobra Commanders Wacky "Suprise its me!" facial expression on his reveal really cracked me up.

I for one liked the movie for what it was. The only thing I didn't like was the actor playing Duke. I thought he did a horrible job and drug the film down. Other than that I give it a soild "B". It wasn't the real American Hero comic we grew up with but after waiting 25 plus years, I'm happy.
P.S. We all know Storm Shadow is not dead

I won't get into it with anyone or start debates because I know how things work here, but that said I saw the movie today and it is one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. I almost walked out.

Why is everyone so sure he's "selling" out? Isn't it possible that he actually did like the movie?
Quite a few people here liked the movie and thought the heart and soul of what makes Joe is in the movie, same as Hama did.
So why isn't it possible that he honestly and geniunely liked the movie?
