There are three parts of the movie that really bugged me:
1.) Ripcord. I didn't like the fact he was called Ripcord when he had no explained experience flying in aircraft or even remotely being a para-trooper/HALO Jumper. This bugged me a lot. I also didn't care for his relationship with Scarlett. And at times I felt that his character didn't seem to fit on the team at all. He was there for random humor and to fly the Night Raven, but he didn't really solidify as a Joe to me in my mind.
2.) Baroness being nanomite-controlled and being "good at heart". I hope this is all a ploy for the next movie and she's just infiltrating the Joes, but I doubt it.
3.) When the Mole Pods rip through the Pit's interior wall, there is no motion or breach alarms. And this bugged me, it really felt like GI Joe's super-awesome HQ had no defense/security at all. That bothered me a good bit.
EDIT - I have to add one more thing.
The CGI REALLY bugged me throughout the movie. It pulled me out of the movie several times. The Howlers were really fake looking, and even though I'm loving the fanwankery with the Flagg at the end, it looked so bad...like a made-for-tv cgi cartoon movie.

The Commander is cunning I am sure he had this planned from the beginning

the whole accell. suit experience. they seemed to have built the entire paris pursuit sequence just to show off the these suits in a flashy cgi sequence. i didn't like them in the clips we saw and having scene the movie, i still don't like them. like many blockbuster cgi films, they seemed to be an excuse to use cgi for the sake of doing so.
i'll jump on the bad cgi wagon. some of the scenes were just very noticeable such as the winter vehicle scenes, the brief pan of the flagg, the street gymastics in the paris pursuit, etc.
while i don't care for the ripcord/scarlet storyline, i'm not so tied to joe verse with the movie that it's a fault to me. i didn't expect much of mythology continuity to begin with.
snake eyes mask, what was with the mouth? i have to say this really looked bad. naturally i would have preferred a more traditional snake eyes look but it is a new movie with a new backstory, etc. given that, i still don't think it fits well even with the movie backstory. a vow of silence would have been reinforced with the choice to not create a fake mouth line in the mask vs. providing the appearance and having to explain it away.

1- Breaker- one of my original joes- the roc breaker didn't come off as a soldier to me...at least could have at one point put on an old school headset with mouth piece...
2- Death of Storm Shadow...but they mentioned more than a few times how the nanomites were "healers" - he could have been all patched up before he hit the water
3- CC/baroness/duke- ok- CC said "shell never know!" but in the sub, Duke was calling him Rex. It didn't even seem to phase her.
"Ninja?? I didn't know we had a Ninja!"
