Seems there is going to be some defections and new recruits on both sides. I personally have not seen it yet, but I am in the skeptical boat. I want to see it but I wont rag on it once I have either good or bad. Ad my old boss used to say. It is what it is.

Ok.. I will say this.. Cobra Commander was far better than I expected.. not my main issue with the movie.
Went the whole movie and the only Cobra Logo I saw was behind their ears on their skin.
I did have issues with it.. for one the CGI Looked like a cartoon.. kind of ruined the realism aspect..
Scarlett and Rip Cord.. *Shivers*..
Baroness not really evil... didn't like that.
Snake Eyes Vow of Silence.. MEH
and are you guys sure Frazier was Sgt. Stone? Because I could have swore I heard them say Sgt. Stalker. Which would be a WTF.
But from a HASBRO perspective.. WTF?? I mean there are TONS of vehicles and stuff in this movie that are Begging to be made into Toys.. and they give us a hand full of vehicles?
As far as I can recall not a single water vehicle and that was a HUGE Part of the movie.
All in all the movie was not horrible.. if I was 8 I would FREAKING LOVE IT... but I'm not and I know GI Joe.. so it was kinda like watching a Superman movie where hes not from Krypton and Lois is a Lesbian Chinese American... but otherwise it was a fun movie.
Better than expected by far.. and a new generation of kids will LOVE This thing and that is what is most important.

Agreed, Ripcord's change is odd and uncalled. Doesn't makes much sense neither. They could have done Heavy duty play the same rol (a kind of younger HD), and Stalker do HD's movie rol.
But it doesn't really bothers me.
The basics of GI Joe are right there. The changes (with some glaring exceptions like Ripcord) are just cosmetic.

I wasn't a ROC hater but I had my doubts.
I was a Ripcord hater because the trailers made him look like he shouldn't be a Joe. But I must admit that I found him to be cool in the movie.

I was a fairly big hater, and almost had my mind made up until I read a couple reviews, then I opened my mind more. I liked it, but it isn't my old GI Joe and that's fine. I think this movie will do what Hasbro and Paramount want it to do: create a new Joeverse for a younger audience and make a lot of money in the process.
i would have definitely preferred a few differences, but hey, I knew how it was gonna be going in.

I was given the hater title before the release, but I felt that was a bit strong after all I was hoping for the best and I thought I would at least enjoy it. Now I am a full fledged Hater. You guys will never understand how much I wanted to be wrong and how open minded I was when I went into this. All that optimisum was just a set up for a big disappointment for me. I never expected the acting to be so horrable accross the board and can you say CGed to death! I knew this movie was going to be for cnildren, but i never expected it to look like it was made by children!
And the total irony for me was that the one and only element I loved about the movie (I know i'm alone on this) was Marlon Waynes!
