C'mon, I am a really huge Gi Joe fan but this movie was boring, bad, and just dumb. Anyone who disagrees is just a fanboy. This movie just did not feel like a Gi Joe movie. It just felt like an another run of the mill action movie. This just didn't even have that Gi Joe magic. It just seem like there was something missing from it to be called a Gi Joe movie. There should've been more characters in this movie. Where was Shipwreck, BBQ, Dusty, Tomax/Xamot, Dreadnocks,etc.? Ugh!
Seriously, if they're going to use G1 Gi Joe names, why not make them look somewhat like G1 Gi Joe characters? This was the same problem with the Transformer movies as well. Breaker being hispanic/english? Ripcord being a black dude? Duke looking like someone who should be playing football? Brendan Frasier as Sgt Stone? Zartan aka the whistler in a business suit? Dr. Mindbender being some weakling scientist who has nothing do with Cobra at all? Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow even rubbed me the wrong way. Don't even get me started on (Cobra) Commander aka Darth Vader. In fact, I don't even remember them using the cobra name or showing the cobra symbol at all except for the little flesh symbols behind the bad guys' ears.
Then there's the CGI. Bad, Bad, Bad. You could totally tell that the Apache helicopters at the beginning were CGI. Also, the whole underwater aka space battle scene that looked straight out of Star Wars looked CGI as well.
I went into this with an open mind with a high anticipation of seeing GI JOE in action, but this movie should've been called Star Wars set on earth instead. Fortunately, Sierra Miller as the Baroness and the Night Raven scene was worth the price of admission alone.

Yeah, I guess I thought it was just 'okay'. I guess I was expecting a lot more from this. My main beef with the movie was that it was just boring.
Another thing that bugged me: Snake Eyes wearing the suit because he was taking a vow of silence due to his master being killed? Hasn't it always been that Snake Eyes wore the suit because he lost his ability to speak due to Storm Shadow like in the cartoon, comics, and resolute cartoon?

Amen!..I agree 100%. But we will be considered closed minded. People wanted a G.I.Joe so bad they would love whatever crap they dished out. And that is what it was. I mean EVERYTHING is already there for them to make a great movie. Back stories and relationships..etc. And they even screwed them up. And for those who say.."we need to support this movie or the line will die" are dumb. If it dies..it's Hasbro's fault 100%.
