Watched the film today, and I really really enjoyed it. I probably would have liked it more if I didn't end up seeing so many different trailers before the film came out. I'm pretty impress with Marlon Wayan as Ripcord, as I am so use to him playing a silly or stupid character in most films (even above the rim, but he killed tu-pac, or birdie, at the end!).
Sienna Miller as Baroness, definately love her! If they do make no.2 I hope she becomes evil permanently lol. As for the other celebs I thought they were pretty decent. I can't see Channing Tatum as Duke being overly charasmatic, actually I can't even see Duke being overly charasmatic! just gung ho (not the character) or go getter, but I love the headbutt scene, I thought it was really funny... Destro "Here we are at the end of the world, and two guys still have an old fashion stare down to see who gets the girl!" - Duke "SMACK"! (don't quote me on this word for word)
Best bits for me were the flashbacks, I thought Steve Sommers done them pretty well, especially the young snake eyes and young storm shadow, that was a fight and a half!!! Young storm shadow looks like he's got the conviction to kill someone!!! When do you see a 10yr old kid do that! Forget 3 ninja kids or any film like that, young storm shadow and snake eyes definately ooze martial arts skills, and with conviction!
Some bits remind me of starwars, the underwater dog fight and one of the vipers falling into a loooonnng deep shaft, but I do love the Paris scene, with the delta 6 suits, not as bad as alot of people thought it would be.
All in all, it won't win an oscar, may never win any nominations, but its great entertainment, this will encourage the little joes to buy the toys, and at least they know what G.I.Joe is all about, as for us veteran fans, they kept franchise alive with a film that more or less has all the elements of what G.I.Joe is, they kept the characters more or less the same - Cobra Commander was a egg-head soldier, which is more believable than him being a used car salesman or an alien spiece from cobra-la.... and we get to see the good ol 99'. And now all we have to do is buy up all the R.O.C toys before them kids get their murky hands on them lol

I was one of the first people that spent all night watching this movie. Although I think this movie was fun and entertaining, I think it fell short on what could have been the best film of the summer. This whole summer I was surrounded by disappointing films like Terminator, X-men and Transformers. I was hoping that GI Joe would be not dissapoint me as these did. It did although I did like ROC way better than the ones I just mentioned. Lets get the bad out of the way first.
The most disappointing aspect of the film was the connection and background of CC, Duke, and the Baroness. I'm sorry but CC and the Baroness are related didn't make any sense. The love between Duke and the Baroness made me wanna throw up. I feel in love with Baroness until we discovered her brother had a mind control over her and it wore off so now she is a Joe. Not only that but she was a blond, wtf? All three actors did a great job but they should have never made a connection between them.
Storm Shawdows death was another messed up aspect. Why are we killing him off? SS was a great part of the movie, hell even better than SE's. Oh and why did they give SE's lips, he kinda freaked me out.
What the hell was that water sequence about, i got confused to see who won the battle. It was so Star War's Jar Jar Binks.
Those suits were also retarted, good concept but they could have done something else.
Too many flashbacks why couldn't start the movie off with the introduction of the characters and how they became who they were instead of showing each character sit and think about what they did wrong in there lives?
Last but not least, Destro was i think the worst character in the whole movie. I mean he was this skinny little man that had the worst acting skills. I felt someone else could have protrayed him alot better someone that was bigger and deeper voice. Don't get me started with his new mask at the end and how him and CC were captured.
Now with the good
Sienna Miller did one hell of a job being the Baroness. Of couse this was not the Baroness that we known and love from the cartoon series but she kick some major ass. Up till the end the Baroness stole the show. If I ended up seeing this again she would be the reason
The scene of Paris was the best part of the movie hands down. It was fun and the action was packed. Too bad they showed this part in the previews, it would have been a real treat if we got to see this the first time. Out of all the ROC toys Im def. buying that hummer with a Baroness figure.
Rachel Nichols also did a good job, she was sexy as hell and I think the fight between here and the Baroness was way better that SS and SE's
Also Zartan was cool and when he killed Cover Girl I was shocked and pleased....
Overall the movie was fun and entertaining, it could have been better but I enjoyed it. At least it wasnt Masters of the Universe, Street Fighter or Jurassic Park 3....go see it and find out for urself *** out of five

It wasn't real ice- it was concrete painted up to look like ice.

Saw it this morning . . .
It was AWESOME! I loved every minute of it.
I thought this was a fantastic origins story and through and through it maintained the spirit of GI Joe. It was fun, silly at times, full of action, tons of cool vehicles, and great characters. I went in expecting a fun filled adventure story and that's exactly what I got. I can't wait to see it again just to be able to soak it all in. Seeing all of the Joes on the big screen had a smile on my face the whole time. I felt like I was watching what was going on in my imagination when I was a kid. Beautiful!

Ok I am going to see this tonight with my son (he's 11) and I am going in with an open mind!! I did the same thing with Transformers!! These 2 shows were a huge part of my childhood and I loved Transformers just as much as GIJOE and I am just glad that movies are finally being made of both franchises.

After looking at the Web all day,
About half the Joe fans like it (Maybe half)
Half the Joe fans hate it
and everyone who knows nothing about GI JOEs thinks it's one of the worst movies ever?
I don't think it hard to develop an understanding of how this movie will do.....

I sincerely hope you (and that would mean I along with you) are very, very wrong.
