Ok, I am going to start it if someone else has not -
Who else HATES Channing Tatum as Duke? :(
There, I said it, let's throw down!
Seriously though, I went into this whole thing w/ an open mind, actually liked the movie somewhat - given the fact I KNEW going in I would get the movie I wanted, and it also would not be the comic I love and the cartoon I grew up with. I think they did a good job combining a lot of elements from both, especially the comics from between the both the Marvel and DDP runs.
I also went in w/ an open mind towards Channing Tatum, as I had NEVER seen any of this other work, and was actually buying it going in - the look, the whole thing.
The he opened his mouth for the first time as Duke........... :(
Nevermind the months of CC bashing, forget all the "OMG Ripcord is black!" threads, who cares anymore about the Duke/Anna/Rex triangle that completely throws off the entire story line of what came before this -
Channing Tatum is just simply TOO young to be Duke. :( It just didn't work for me. I even forgot about Marlon Wayans (even though I thought he would have made a better Stalker than he did this "Ripcord" they came up with). I just can't buy Tatum as Duke, he just looks and sounds too much like a kid.
Who then? I don't know, Dusty, maybe one of the other guys who is younger on the team? Maybe Falcon even, I don't know.
The question then become, "well then WHO to play Duke then?" Again, I don't know. Just someone who looked, sounded and was the part much better and a little older - like in his early to mid 30s. I can even buy the Resolute Duke now more than I can Tatum's.
Of course I get it too that this Duke HAD to be young also to be coming INTO the Joe team as a new member, and coming from a younger character in the back story w/ Rex and Anna also. An older Duke would have not made since in this way in the way he was wrtten coming into the team also.
I don't know, maybe I'm just still too hung up on the whole cartoon / comic Duke, who came into the second gen of characters in the comic as a hero, blazing away w/ Roadblock at the jet at Gen Flagg's funeral, inspiring the orignal Joes as their new team leader (so to speak, Hawk was still in command at that point).
I guess I just always saw Duke as being a little older, a little wiser, and a little more experinced than this one.
Oh well, it was just a movie................

I'm going to try and reply in a Tatum-inspired monotone:
Yeah. His-performance-was-really-not-that-good. He-showed-no emotion. Did-not-even-change-the-inflection-of-his-voice. You-could-really-tell-he-loved-Ana-by-the-way-he-said-it. Channing-Tatum-is-a-black-hole-of-acting-talent. He-has-anti-charisma. Yo-Joe.

No, I hate Marlon Wayans as, well, anything in this film far too much to worry about Channing Tatum. ;)

He was boring as hell. Wayans was actually decent.

Channing was terrible. In the first five minutes I could have walked out on his crappy acting alone. Not believable in any way. He was awful. The audience laughed when he first came on the screen and opened his mouth.

All the acting was bad (except Destro) and Tatum is no acception.

I wouldn't say hate. But I did strongly dislike him. He, in my opinion, was the weak link. Followed by Quaid's Hawk.
