Prepare to throw the tomatos guys, but I was honestly very dissapointed in it, especially with Warran Ellis' rep.
Basically, all we got was a beautifully animated feature with almost minimal plot and characterization.
Cobra builds big-ass superweapon.
GI Joe stops them.
Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow fight.
Sorry guys, but mature to me doesn't mean blood and random characters dying. After having the weekend to think it over, we got a one-hour episode that had none of the fun and wit of the cartoon, or any of the subtlety and characterization of the comic. So what's left?
3 out of 5.

I liked it. It was better than the last few joe cartoon/anamation movies(VvV, SP troops, 6 sigma). I was suprised that so many characters died in it. I was wondering by just looking at the robotic arm of the resolute destro made me wonder if Zartan, SS, and Blood were some type of android? I could see SS using a android of himself to fight SE to get the final data on how to use the final death move. Zartan had to be some type of android in order have a complete cloaking device to turn him invisible. Also I cannot imagine him getting shot in the back by Duke so easily. I think their may be a part 2 coming then we will find out why so many icons were killed.

I've got to be honest...I found both good and bad qualities to the new Joe toon. For the people who found killing Bazooka I ask...could they have picked anyone better?? I hate Bazooka, he is a dumbass and probably deserved the ninja ass whooping he got via Stormy. But he does have some impact with fans who liked him, so again he was the perfect Joe to kill off. Not too over the top, not too B-list...just right.
The fight between Stomy and Snakes...holy shit was that awesome. I hate the fact that my favorite character is "dead" or is he just in a "death trance"???
I liked how Cobra Commander was wreckless and hateful and even made mention in the toon on how he had been treated as a fool. I liked leaving the ending open ended with his whereabouts.
After digesting it several times, I have one complaint...felt a bit rushed to me. Like they had to deliver as much action and kill off as many people as we could to get the point across in a short time slot.
Overall, Resolute was a win...I want more!

Resolute was exactly what the line needed! Hopefully the live action movie will exceed all expectations, but more than likely we just experienced our “Super Bowl” with Resolute. The show was great, and it gave the fans everything the 80’s animated shows never could.
People are nitpicking about “realism” but are you being serious right now? GI Joe has never been about “realism”. One example would be that maybe cobra could actually complete a task, as the good guys don’t always come out victorious. How’s that grab ya for “realism”.
Resolute paid homage to the original, as it should have, but ripped the door off the hinges at the same time. Yes you still had unbelievable shoot outs where only the bad guys died or were injured (a nod to the originals). But cobra actually lived up to their name, being a terrorist group and all, and took out millions of people. So there’s some “realism” for ya.
And in closing I’m very pleased that both Storm Shadow and Zartan were taken out, great why not? It’s not like cobra can’t find another martial artist or crazy mercenary. They could have even killed off Duke, actually that would have probably made a greater impact, but hopefully he’ll leave next time around if there is a next time. The series needs to evolve and that’s exactly what just happened. No one was safe, and that’s how it should be.

I agree with you 100% I was looking forward to this far more than the movie.

There were a few things I like and a few I did not. Some of the scenes had this white wash effect to them similar to the sigma six series. In addition, what was with the entire senseless killing example Major Blood, Bazooka ,Zartan, Storm Shadow. These guys are players of G.I. Joe history. The last thing if didn’t care for was Storm Shadow being such a cry baby, I was glad he died.
The action sequences were great. Also I liked the redesign of the Joes different but you still knew who was who not like the up coming movie.
All in all I took I as separate movie all by itself and enjoyed it.I hope that the guys that made this movie. Take in what we think and put out a weekly series.

Being too short was my only complaint. hopefully they do make a series out of it. i was surprised at how they killed off some major players. it certainly was darker than any of the originals...deaths, cussing, blood. nobody ever died except for cobra-la (troopers, pythona, nemesis enforcer, and the headman) duke almost died but that's about it. in resolute we start off with 2 major deaths and bunch of troopers and 2 major deaths at the end. and cobra commander is more evil than he's ever been. loved the snake-eyes/storm shadow battle. all in all...it was pretty darn good. i hope it comes out on DVD. still...the bad guys have horrible aim.

I enjoy the toon and would like to see more in the future.
I felt a bit like I was watching a battle with the fast forward button stuck on but I understand this was due to the time constraints. I would have enjoyed a larger and more drawn out final battle for Springfield but again I understand there was only so much time to play with. Its my hope that these webisodes spur on a full series so I can enjoy more time with the characters. Because for me it gets no better than watching the power struggle with in Cobra develop.
