The reviewer may be a little ticked at this show but if Hasblo was quoted as wanting the audiences to define it I will have to post my own thread but I think the mods would delete me.
I will say I found it annoying Sommers took all the story elements and reshuffeled them. But I can live with that because I know they are trying to make a show that everyone would like.
However, since this show was so heavily dependent on CGI, I must say I was pretty surprised how crappy many of the CGI scenes where.
The FLAGG scene and the establishing shots of the PIT. They did not look too real. It really had that SciFi Network quality to them. Just good enough to look sort of read but not near the quality of Transformers.
ILM did not to these shots. They had some other outfit do it.
I will write more on this later when I have time.

It's a ridiculous review. His use of the wrongly quoted phrase, "All-American Hero" and his lack of knowledge of the "white ninja" and "black ninja" show that his identification as "a G.I. Joe groupie" consisted of being like every other boy in America in the 80's who had a few Joes thrown in his toy chest along with his He-Man, his Transformers, and his A-Team action figures. He probably watched the cartoon every now and then when he wasn't doing anything else and he remembered that it was on... and even then he was eating a Fruit Roll-Up and not paying attention.
I'm going tonight and I'll form my own opinion. I'm sure some on Hisstank will love it, and some will hate it, and a lot of us will fall somewhere in between. Some of us will articulate our positions well, and some will offer a more emotional response. And I think it's safe to say that the expectations of each fan will play a huge part in the perceptions of each viewer.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?

The Joe's look like church boys is cheap camo from walmart.
They have no distinction. Everyone looks the same.
The cheesy lines and and CGI was awful.
General Hawk had hemorrhoids.
The GI Joe plane looked like a cheap looking fish/bird/whale with no windows.
Night Raven's cockpit opens from the top.
The pitt is in Egypt?
The Vipers looked awful and always got wasted and talked like storm troopers.
Dr. Mindbender sounded like a pedophile.
The connection between Duke, Baroness and Rex was awful.
Baroness was never bad but just brainwashed?
The vehicles sucked.
Both Destro/CC were burnt up like Darth Vader.
Too much water.
CC's helmet looked cheap. his voice changed 3 times.
Everything looked cheap and thrown together.
Heavy duty was lame.
All this high tech gear can be solved and stabbing a knife through it?
Every problem is solved before you even get to digest the problem.
I can go on forever how bad this movie was. I feel bad for kids who wanted to know this story.
What made me sad was the huge turnout and the electric feeling the movie had before hand and the absolute disappointment afterwards.
What a disappointment. It's just a toy push and money grab. They took advantage of something and if you're dumb enough to let them take your money than I guess thats your fault. The ones who like this are either paid off or have some kinda bias they can't get over.
I loved GI Joe like everyone else but I won't let some rich hollywood scum bags sell me pooh.

I'm assuming only 10 other people were in the theatre with him to ask, or he simply ignored everybody else because their opinion didn't validate his agenda.
