I've never enjoyed a movie so much while simultaneously being so thoroughly disgusted in my life!! I don't know if I should hate it for its weak, predictable plot and ninjas' with mouthes or if I should love it for its over the top action, special-effects, grit, humor and knack for not taking itselt too seriously!
Overall, yes I'd like to see a sequel and YES I expect them to fix a LOT of problems.

i actually really enjoyed the movie.. the doctor was awesome , made for an excellent bad guy and i to also love that he used destro as a pawn to get his work done..
biggest problem i had in the movie were the flash back scenes , horrible horrible horrible.. i dont think they were a bad idea they were just done sooooo bad and at the worst times to.
i do wonder how they are going to bring back baroness , in the movie she just turned on cobra
No Your Right - i make all this stuff up

I went to this movie expecting to hate it (sort of).
To give you some background. I hated the Star Wars prequel trilogy. I can't express adequately my loathing for it in this forum post about how many levels it insulted/betrayed/disgusted me.
I ignored the Transformers movies. I didn't even bother to watch them. I hated the redesigns. I hate that charisma-less muppet Shia La Poof. Even Megan Fox's voluptuous charms weren't enough to entice me to see it. Although if I were to watch it it would be 100% because Megan Fox is in it and NO other reason.
But I went to see GI Joe. Why? TBH my passion for GI Joe doesn't run as deeply as it does for Star Wars and Transformers. So any huge changes wouldn't bother me. Then I read a review that made it sound, whilst not great cinema, to be good action entertainment. And I just happened to be in the mood for some mindless fluff. And I have a subscription to my local cinema, which allows me to take risks about which films I go to see.
The film was better than I expected. It pushed the right buttons for me. It had that slightly camp OTT vibe just right. Not too corny and not too serious. It didn't suffer from A-Team syndrome, some people were actually *gasp* killed.
I enjoyed the film and glad I went. Sienna Miller was smoking hot as Baroness, and so was Rachel Nichols as Scarlett. I was laughing out loud at Ripcord. Most of the cast did a much better job than I was expecting.
I feel about this film as a I did about the latest Star Trek film. They gave me a similar feel of spectacle and campy humour. And thinking about the film in detail afterwards is NOT a good idea. No where near my top ten, but it met my requirements as good light entertainment.
Things I didn't like
Snake Eye's mouth.
Cobra Commander's helmet.
General lack of Cobra.
I guess the haters just expected too much. I can sympathise with them as I have felt the same way about other films.

I was hoping for more character cameos. I thought Shipwreck made an appearance but I never saw him.
I just watched a trailer for District 9 and I can't wait to see it. But this weekend I'll be watching ROC again. I'll watch D9 later.

It was far better than I imagined. It was truer to the source material than Transformers and a better movie IMO.

I've seen it twice and liked it even more the second time. Yes it's not perfect and yes it doesn't follow the series canon but I don't care. I had a blast both times and you know what? I was entertained. Isn't that why we go to the movies in the first place?

I think all the positive support for ROC from GI Joe fans is just plain embarrassing. It says a lot about the type of fans GI Joe has that 75% (roughly) think this abomination was not only acceptable, but good.
