So. I feel like I got a GIJOE movie. I really do. Did they make some mistakes along the way...absolutely. I would say its a 70% perfect translation to 30% What the hell we're they thinking?
- The opening sequence battle was awesome.
- The battle in the Pit was just greatness.
- They got so many characters almost exactly right. Baroness, Scarlett, Snakeeyes, Storm Shadow, Destro, General Hawk. Just loved it.
- Their interpretation of Duke and Ripcord totally worked for me and having them each be the big heroes at the end, awesome.
- Accelerator Suits worked for me in this. Although I wish Snakeeyes was coming after Baroness and Storm Shadow in the building as well...
-SE/SS battles were epic!
-Scarlett/Baroness fight was hot...
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
- Cobra Commander...was really creepy and worked for me, up until he puts on his new mask and screams victory when defeated...
- The insular connections that felt forced and unneeded in the script.
- Why they ended it underwater...I don't know, too CGI insanity for me.
- Duke totally needed to kill more bad guys. He only gets like 4 kills the entire movie.
I want to see it again. Its a 7/10 and a good ass time.

The whole bit with Cobra Commander "operating" on Destro and giving him his new "face" seems to have come from the UK Action Force comics where CC is attacked by his old comrade, Red Jackel. After blasting his face with venom, he has surgeons operate on him with micro-surgery to turn him into Destro (Whole different background histories over there )

Well I haven't seen it but I do have some questions
How much is Zartan in the film, does he kill Hardmaster?
Does SS ever wear the mask?
Does CC have the iconic voice?
Is Destros mask like the toy version throughout the movie or does he get an upgrade to be more like the cartoon?
Does it seem like they're going to be rid of the horrendous viper look by the next film?

Yes, Stormy has the mask on for at least one scene (Maybe more but I forget at this point)
Destro is human faced for majority of the movie (he gets the "mask" at the end)
The Vipers might be back, they might not. They don't show any Vipers in custody at the end of the movie so it's possible they'll get new looks for the next movie

Ok I'm going to see it tonight.
However I know some of the story as I've read the prequel novel.
I've read a thread or two here and there.
I know about the Commander being this and that but
him being the baroness brother does not bother me at all.
It takes snake eyes out of the story.
It makes Snake eyes less like what they did with wolverine being involved in so many stories.
I'm really excited to see this and hit the target sale this weekend.

I am starting this thread for the people who have a keen eye to detail and may have paying closer attention to detail than myself.
There are a few very obvious references through out the movie that got a nice reaction from the theater I was in.
Gen Hawk saying "knowing is half the battle."
Breaker asking Duke for gum.
Bazooka's shirt in the rec room of the pitt.
Heavy Duty screaming Yo Joe!
Characters I am sure got some screen time.
Jinx - shoulder length black hair in "invisible" uniform
Tunnel Rat - shorter asian character in hat in the briefing room
Dialtone - female has one line looked like the res dt and the figure form the 5 pack.
I am sure there were more references or random characters I missed so fill us in on what you think you saw.
