All a scientist needs to abandon his or her country is a whiff of the super-cool science happening behind enemy lines.

First off using Marlon Wayans to play a white g.i. joe is kinda messed up! Second its Marlon Wayans jesus i dont care what people say...oh his acting was good its still Marlon Wayans i dont like him as a joe not to forget hes playing a white joe. Scarlett and Ripcord??? WTF lets fuck this up even more by making The Baroness and Duke have a thing! Why is it so hard for writers to take a series that has enough kick-ass story lines to it and fuck it up by changing everything, shit why not make Cobra Commander a member of Hammas whose pissed off because the UN destoryed his flower shop? I do agree his mask needs to be changed in the next movie....wonder how they plan on using stormshadow again unless the writers plan on still being fucking retards and leave him dead or maybe replace Dennis Quaid with George Lopez seeing is how they fucked everything else up why not

But carry on!
As far as the title goes, the Rise of Cobra is signified by the creation of Cobra Commander.

Saw the movie it was pretty good,the story was more like an episode of the cartoon I watched as a child but with some major changes that do not bother me much.
Duke still needs work, he didn't really have the leadership capabilities he was trained for.
Ripcord was a great second in command to Duke he didn't mess up that much an his humor wasn't overboard.
Scarlett was just Scarlett a crack shot with her crossbow, I believe there really isn't anything between her an Ripcord they have more of a brother/sister thing going on, Snake Eyes cares about her more that he cares about himself tho you cant see it on his face.
Snake Eyes what more is there to say bout our favorite ninja commando? He kicked ass took names an will wait for Storm Shadow cause he knows he will be back. The vow of silence was pretty silly but maybe in the next film if he is in Battle he will get caught in an explosion an get scarred an lose his vocal chords.
Breaker.................he's a geek. a very brilliant geek who needs his gum hahahaha. I liked his eye piece cause of he didnt have that he wouldnt have caught onto Destro's lies.
Heavy Duty was more of a leader than a heavy munitions expert I wonder what was his Rank?
General Hawk was pretty cool in my opinion tho I wish I could have seen him in action more than just the attack on the Pitt.
Cover Girl she was HOT in her outfit but I hope she survived Zartan's stab but its highly unlikely.
Destro had the classic villain look without the mask but we both know he was just a puppet an who the real Puppet Master is. I have mixed feelings on the mask but at least he has it on an hope they improve it in the next movie, his relationship with the Baroness has not changed an that is a good thing.
Zartan was a complete badass who didn't get much screen time but after the last scene in the movie he will DEFINITELY have a huge impact in the Sequel.
The Baroness was same Baroness I knew an drooled over from the cartoon an comic sans the accent, I was not really fond of her relationship with Duke but I have a strange feeling she is just playing with Duke's feelings an leading the Joes on for we all know where her Allegiance lies nanomites or not.
Storm Shadow was spot on stealthy and lethal adversary to Snake Eyes, both evenly match but SS may have lost this round but he will be back.
The Neo and Elite Vipers and Eel's were excellent foot soldiers for M.A.R.S and Cobra I hope to see more of them in action.
The Doctor/Cobra Commander was the epitome of evil. The cunning and ruthless puppet master who cares about nothing except getting what he wants an does not care who gets hurt in the process. The relationship between him an the Baroness is a new take on it but it would have been better if Duke had not told her who he was it would have made it more interesting. I liked his outfit in the final scenes of the movie but I agree get rid of the mask or upgrade it to a classic look but leave the rest of the uniform.
The one thing that bothered me a bit was the CGI I wish Sommers had used ILM instead of the same company he worked with in The Mummy Movies.
The Accelerator Suits did not bother me at all but.
The Dialogue was mediocre at best but Duke had the most problems like I mentioned at the top of my review he did not look like he had the Leadership Capabilities.
Ahh yes Fraiser's cameo...........why was he there?? What is Sgt. Stone's position? Is he a Drill Instructor?
I WANT THE FLAGG!!! -ahem- sorry hehe.
Overall it was a pretty decent movie which took a lot of elements from the comics and especially the cartoons when it comes to G.I.Joe vs Cobra with many and I mean MANY easter eggs for the old school fans of both the toys, cartoons and the comics.
For the old school many will be disappointed with movie but for those who never knew G.I.Joe they will enjoy this movie an I will welcome them to the fanbase.
To end it off I will give this movie a solid 8.5 out of 10.
If Sommers does not come back for the Sequel that would be fine, each installment with a new Director just like the Original Star Wars Trilogy.

and i agree with you that if you ar a nut bar fanboy that think the 80's cartoon was and still is good you will not like this movie but if you don't know GI JOE at all and like action flicks you will like it and if you only know a little about GI JOE like me you will like it too. IMO
