I just got back. The movie was awesome! I'm seeing it again tomorrow. I really liked the Doctor. His voice rocked. I wasn't a fan of the Duke and Baroness thing but the rest makes up for it. Storm Shadow was awesome. This movie was so awesome. Great action and it was very Joe like. I can't wait to see it again. Everything else the good and the bad have already been said.

Just saw the movie. I thought it was a great ride, and they did explain the characters pretty well. The background story changed a little, but there's only so much you can show in a movie, and create new fans. I loved Snake Eyes dodging cars on the roof. I loved his entrance to the movie as well. I liked the end credits where they showed various decals that I have spent many late nights putting on my toys as a kid. I think that the movie will create new fans, and I think the toys will be coming off the shelves in the next few weeks. Hopefully, this will allow Hasbro to bring around a 30th anniversary line of joes in 3 years, that features Joes they didn't retool with the 25th line. Hopefully, this line will be in addition to the Movie/Resolute line. Overall, this movie will bring life back to GI Joe, and should allow us Tankers to reap the benefits of the hobby we enjoy. Also, I gotta say that Marlon Wayans is corny, but funny, and he provided the perfect comic relief. Too bad, we will not get a Stalker, as they turned Ripcord into him.

If the effects were better I might move it up to high B.

Ok, just got back from seeing it. I went in with an open mind.
Here are my thoughts:
Overall, the movie was okay. There are some things good, some bad. I had low expectations going in, and it's a good thing.
What I liked:
1) The Mole Pod attack was pretty cool.
2) Sienna Miller was hands down better than most of the cast.
3) The "Doctor" character was cool. If he didn't tun out to be Cobra Commander, he'd have been even cooler.
4) A lot of nice nods to long time Joe Fans.
5) SS/SE battles! I liked them a lot.
6) "He never gives up." One of my favorite lines. Great way of working it in.
7) Scarlett kicks some pretty serious butt.
8) USS Flagg! Jinx!
What I disliked:
1) The flashbacks: terrible! And they come up at really strange times.
2) The whole Duke loves the Baroness, who is the sister of CC, but is also with Destro. Ugh. Totally unecessary.
3) CC and Destro looked brutal.
4) Way too much CGI, and a lot of it looks really cheesey.
5) Ripcord. Most of his delivery feels forced. There are a few brief moments where his character shines, but his comedy is horrible.
6) The music. WTF? MTV kids will love it, but it gives the movie a corny feel.
7) The opening sequence was totally stupid. Bad way to kick things off.
8) Sgt. Stone. sigh. Way to get your buddy in the movie, Sommers.
9) Zartan. Although he has a cool scene at the end, you don't care, because there is NO fleshing out his character at all.
10) Someone explain to me how this is the "Rise" of Cobra. CC never calls it Cobra, they get captured, Baroness is a good guy. And yes, I am sure Zartan will play into them escaping, but the movie should have been called "The Fall of M.A.R.S"
11) How is GIJOE a secret outfit if everyone knows who they are?
All in all, it's a popcorn movie. Lots of action and explosions. I think younger kids will love this movie. I saw it in a packed theater, and people were snickering all through it. Lots of boos at the end. There is certainly room to improve, should a sequel happen.
I am not a big fan of changing something just to change it. If there is a vaild reason, sure. But a lot of things in the movie just feel "fake". I know GIJOE has sci fi elements, but a little more realism would have helped. Better dialogue would have helped as well, I think. Some of the actors seem to be coasting through their parts. I don't know if that is a director issue or the actors, but a lot of the characters are very bland.
I give it 5 out of 10.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
The Reign of Tears has begun! Check out my original G.I.Joe story!

Just got back. Walked out having had a really good time. Went with 2 friends, one enjoyed it, other HATED IT. Some really questionable decisions, but overall a good ass popcorn film that I will see again soon.
7/10... almost went down when BOOM BOOM POW started playing at the credits...I mean, come on Sommers.

My wife(25), Daughter(3), and I(28) just got back from seeing it in South Carolina. My wife and daughter have no idea about the orginal story and absolutely loved it. My daughter won't sit still for any movie and sat there the entire time. The story was different then when we were all kids but the movie had lots of action and I was very pleased with the result.

Well I decided to go in costume and just like I figured....I was the only one but at least I got some compliments on it, almost as soon as I stepped inside though, the manager asked me to remove the mask (he was very appologetic about it though so that's cool)
I liked the movie and my fiancee liked it too, we both agree that there were a few things that could be fixed (She'd rather them cut down on the vehicle scenes, those things bore her) but overall it was a fun movie
