Resolute was excellent. From the writing to the animation style. The only thing that would make it better would be if it was animated by a Japanese Anime Studio. This was the show I wish GONZO had been allowed to make, but couldn't because they were tasked with making a series targeted specifically for the kiddies.
I know some people are pissed about the changes to some characters story lines, but with all the different story lines (the different cartoons, comics, figure lines and so forth) it's almost a moot point. As for the various character deaths, don't forget it's also been a habit of both Hasbro and the cartoon/comic companies that produce the entertainment for the franchise to bring back characters that have died.
The only thing I really didn't like was the CGI used to animate the vehicles. I would have preferred if they too were hand drawn/cell shaded like the rest of the show. Call me a traditionalist.

Ok so i gave it an 8. It was overall very good. The +'s for me were the animation, character designs(zartan was awesome), sword fight, se. The negatives would have to be cobra pretty much being terrible shots, Zartan's scene and death was not good( shooting missles from afar which both duke and scarlet could just jump out of the way?? bring back the bow and arrow Zartan. also the very rushed ending with a lack of a good all out fight( hiss tanks, rattlers, etc, etc. I do hope for a on going series with zartan back.

I thought it was great, but I wish they left some bad guys alive so they could continue on the series. Also, all these cobras died, what about the joes? Someone should have died besides Baz. And cobra trooper filecards say they are the best of the best but why didn't it say they can't shoot worth shit?

I gave it a 9....I was really impressed with it and didn't have too many gripes. Just SS being killed and the slightly hurried ending, but other than that I thought it was just plain AWESOME!

I gave it a 9 just because the finale could've been better. I was expecting a much bigger final battle. Also I guess one of the requirements to become a Cobra soldier is that you are a lousy shot. Either that or Destro sells Cobra some crappy ass rifles.

I gave it a 10! It was what I had imagined the ultimate Joe story would be like. Yes it had a couple things I would have changed but I didn't write it! I can't allow myself to be such a fan boy and give it anything less!

I gave it a nine.
I don't think I have any complaints that haven't already been said. The Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow backstory was nice, but it really slowed down the story in my opinion. That would have worked in a longer series, but when you have so little time it wasted precious minutes, I think.
But overall, I loved it.

I gave it a 2.
Harsh, but the main reason I like GI Joe is the characters, and these characters were cardboard cut outs at best. I read the comic, and never watched the cartoon, so my expectations are probably higher for that reason.
Three characters that stood out as being completely flat were Destro, Zartan, and Cobra Commander. In the comic these characters had immense depth, and it showed in the way they acted and spoke. I don't expect an hour long show to be able to establish any sort of character depth, but they should act in a way that demonstrates something is present, otherwise the story is completely boring to me.
For instance Destro - in the comic represented as a stoic, calculating mercenary who sticks to his own code of honor. In Resolute - a bumbling Cobra henchman. Now there's nothing wrong with changing his character into something completely different. I'm ok with that. It's just that the "something different" was completely boring and had zero depth in its portrayal.
I could go on - in the comic Zartan was a remorseful assassin, in Resolute he "likes killin'" - I'd be fine with the change if the new Zartan wasn't just a cornball.
And the story just seemed like a big chase around the globe. No characters had to make any sort of meaningful decisions - something blows up here, chase it over there.
Like I said my expectations were high for the story based on reading the comic, also because Warren Ellis was writing.
That aside the quality of the animation was excellent, and the new character designs were superb. So maybe I was a little harsh. But those things should be icing on the cake to a great story and characters, and I didn't see either.
I wasn't going to comment because I didn't want to rain on the Resolute parade - but I saw some people requesting the negative feedback after I voted. Please don't let my opinion ruin your enjoyment of the show. I think it's great that people like it, the more people that do the more likely there will be more Joe stuff.
