I really liked it, it was almost as good as I could have hoped for. Not the film I would have made, not my favorite movie ever, but good and fun.
I was hoping for more se/ss, but I was afraid they'd give us less than they did.
I was hoping for slightly more story, but at least ROC had a plot clearer than many action flicks.
Never laughed out loud, but I did chuckle.
Gotta go for Scarlett's crossbow, PITT, gunship, hummer.
Loved the shoes line & Baroness was well done. Loved the unmasked Destro and really liked Doctor & SS.
Thanks for a fun film

That's right! I liked it...I mean not an oscar movie by a longshot, but I'll buy it the day it's out on DVD.
Some parts did bother me, the baroness at the end didn't seem to mind or even aknowledge CC was her brother...even scarlett/rc was ok, the kiss was fine- hell, maybe we'll find out they are brother and sister and Rex was the daddy

I liked it. I agree it's not gonna win any awards but it was entertaining. And it was nice to see the coca-cola bear getting work in the off season

thought it was a lot of fun. i also went into it with a very open mind. really felt that while the cast of characters chosen to represent the joes was odd (rip cord, heavy duty, etc), the over the top, craziness really made it feel like a joe film.

I just got back from the film. It was an absolutely awesome I didn't pick up any on plot holes, which i usually do in films past. I like the back story and history they gave be between the Baroness, Rex, Duke and Ripcord which i wasn't sure about before the film, but it work very well for this story and set up for some serious conflicted betrayal in the second film
One thing that surprised me is how much I like the character Ripcord. He had his funny moments but he wasn't over the top and very likeable and respectable as character
I didn't feel there was some stuff left out between Storm-Shadow's and Snake-eye's back story that may have been to do editing. I felt there was suppose to be a little more maybe we'll see that in second film.
I not sure if Cover Girl is dead or not simply because the doctor that was treating Hawk said to Duke "they're in critical condition", however they didn't show who the other person the doctor was speaking of.
I see why this film is doing good at the box office.

I'm not sure what more I can add, I liked the movie. The flashbacks through out the film were great and doctor/cc twist was a surprise too.
On the way home I resisted going to the toy store for more joes, only cause I just spent $300 on vintage transformers before seeing the film. The toy stores are open tommorow and the next day!
Oh and SE vs SS was great. My smiling muscle are sore.

I cannot complain about any of it. The movie was fun, it was a retelling of the story. Cobra was rising and becoming a threat, Gi Joe was pre-existing but adding new members as it needed them. I was sadden to see Cover Girl killed off, she was always a favorite character of mine as a child so I did wish to see more screen time from her.
Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadows history was awesome, as well as all the back stories. But I have to say to watch the movie, you had to read the prequel book, it definitely helped make the story better.
Again it was a very enjoyable movie, and I look forward to the sequel.

I just got finished watching it again - I very rarely feel this wat about films but it does get better and better with each viewing!
I noticed quite a few bits I didnt catch before - like Snake eyes throwing a shuriken into the side of a vipers head!
...the only thing that gets a bit annoying with repeated viewings is Zartans whistling! lol
