I kinda have this feeling that those damned heretic moviemakers never have such a desire to make good movies of our beloved GI Joe and Transformers universe. Many of them disrespect and think those are just toys and those meant nothing to them. They think "let's screw up a bit and let's make money from it"
Tell you (RoC lovers and makers) what, I have strong bonds with them as they have become part of my childhood heroes. I used to defend them in front of my friends when i was in junior hi. Many of them said MASK, or SilverHawks or Saint Seiya were a lot better. But not to me. Now after knowing this RoC movie, i feel much ashamed as a Joe fan.
For RoC lovers, please respect our feelings as "haters" as we respect your "loves".
(Next time put Heidi Klum as Scarlett and SEAL as Ripcord, that oughta do it.)

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but arrgh, Destro's accent was painful. That's the problem with hiring a Northerner to play (and try to imitate the accent of) a Scotsman.
Painful, nearly as painful as the cringeworthy Celtic voice control in fact.

I appreciate your opinion. It is not necessary to put all the outdated material, but the movie should retain major characteristics and interactions of the characters.
In the comics, Duke is portrayed as a no nonsense commander and because of it he is greatly respected by his comrade in arms.
But in RoC, he is portrayed as a indecisive yellow soldier, I wonder how why he is inducted as a SpecOps. Snake Eyes shares the same fate. In the comics, he is horribly disfigured and rendered mute while saving Scarlett and still continuing his duty, thus making him a tragic hero. In RoC, he is said to hold vow of silence, thus making him one of the see-hear-speak-no evil monkeys. I mean Snake Eyes is Snake Eyes when he is portrayed as both mysterious and tragic hero.
I do not mind RipCord as African American but to show some equality put Stalker or other prominent African American Joes in and do not cast some goof off as SpecOps characters.
To put some humor in it, they can write something without putting some goof offs.
Maybe the characters' backgrounds (make them as Afghan war veterans), the technologies and vehicles should be updated, yes I agree. But RoC put too much emphasis on nanotechs and other techs, might as well as put the nanobots fight and the joes sit in a control room. I think it would be better if the tech support how the Joes fight and work as a unit.
Or put Cobra not as a new menace, instead as a powerful menace hidden in mystery.
Maybe, GI Joe should be adapted like the way Iron Man was adapted.
But anyway thanks for sharing your thought

I hurt the hisstank admin franny boys feelings on twitter for not being an a little "movie" follower.
Its to bad many of the mods don't have an open mind around here.
The time has come for the Cobra to rise up and reveal himself. You will call me... Commander!

I liked Stormshadow. They cast a good guy, his outfit was cool.
I thought the rest of the movie was absolute garbage for all the reasons everyone mentioned.
I went into the Theater with low expectations, but it was even worse than I imagined. How many times did Marlon Wayans yell "Woo"?
They could have made a movie that appealed to the kids and the fans, and brought Gi. Joe into the 21st century, but they blew it.
Why the hell was Scarlett the damsel in distress? She was one of the original Joe members, and she needs a pep talk from Marlon F#&*ing Wayans!?

I highly doubt you hurt DESTRO's feelings.
Maybe you should go down to JoeCon and let him know that you think you hurt his feelings in person.
Oh wait, I don't think Fran feeds trolls. Nevermind.
