here are the major spoiler lines located in full production notes.
"A major storyline in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION focuses on the relationship between SNAKE EYES and his arch-enemy STORM SHADOW, who was presumed dead at the end of G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA. When we first meet SNAKE EYES again, he is on a search for peace within himself after retreating to the Arashikage to train with the BLIND MASTER. It is there that SNAKE EYES learns that STORM SHADOW is still alive. “SNAKE EYES is set to the task of finding STORM SHADOW and bringing him to the Blind Master to face judgment and accountability for his actions,” explains Park."
Director Jon M. Chu wanted to delve deep into the emotional storyline of the ninjas and the depth of the animosity between the two men who trained side-by-side as brothers. “We really wanted to explore where the human and ninja collide, where the anger and jealousy start to take over and that’s where we find both these characters.”
The centerpiece action sequence that is sure to be a much talked about crowd pleaser is a sequence that involves a high-altitude zipline chase and Ninja fight on the mountaintops of the Himalayas. After discovering that STORM SHADOW was healing and seeking refuge with the red Ninjas in a Nepalese monastery, SNAKE EYES and JINX set out to retrieve him and bring him back to the BLIND MASTER for judgment. After an epic fight between the two adversaries that leads to having STORM SHADOW’s unconscious body in tow, the duo are forced to take the only route of escape. The most dangerous sequence follows them down the majestic snow-covered mountainside on a zip line while being chased by hordes of red ninjas.
In the first act, audiences are introduced to the G.I. JOE team and their level of physical intensity illustrated by two grandiose action sequences that set the bar for the level of action the audience can anticipate. On a mission to neutralize Pakistan’s’ nuclear arsenal, the teams perform a dangerous and high-risk extraction with great precision and skill. The sequence is an action smorgasbord that involves high-height rappelling, hand-to-hand combat, parkour, gunplay and a great deal of weaponry and ammunition. The sequence showcases each of the G.I. JOE team members’ special skill set and their undeniable proficiency and domination as a team.
Shot in NASA’s VAB, short for the Vertical Assembly Building, the production team utilized the 220 foot tall ceilings and never-before-seen rocket boosters to push the limits of the action coverage. “The production value is amazing and we had ROADBLOCK and two other JOE’S repel down the face of this 200-foot rocket into battle,”
While celebrating the successful completion of the complicated and dangerous mission with no G.I. JOE lives lost, the team is ambushed and blindsided by a powerful force that essentially wipes out the majority of the unit. The stunts and special effects team orchestrated a powerful and explosive portrayal of a military force under siege. The sequence involved Humvee’s blown 30 feet into the air, numerous rocket-charges staged all over the set and vehicles on fire all within a carefully choreographed sequence that implicated the extensive unit of core G.I. JOE’s, additional Navy Seals, over 30 stuntmen and roughly 40 extras.
