    Because of where I work I really try to watch some of these action movies, but I just can't handle all the over done special effects, crap blowing up, bullets going around corners, etc... I thought Transformers was awful and so many people loved it.
    I'll maybe watch G.I. Joe when it's a freebie on Demand.

    If you remember the stuff in the cartoons you will see pretty much the same type of technology references and uses in the movie..they did a good job with it.

    I figured that much based off the trailers I saw on tv!

    G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" is a 118-minute animated film with sequences involving the faces and other body parts of human beings. It is sure to be enjoyed by those whose movie appreciation is defined by the ability to discern that moving pictures and sound are being employed to depict violence.
    Just watching the trailer, it looks terrible. Transformers 2 was really awful too.

    It's fine having lots of explosions and action; I simply don't understand how you can enjoy it though, when it's lacking in any comprehensible plot-line. The story needs to at least make sense.

    The trailer to this movie makes me want to turn my head inside-out.

    Don't go off that review...don't go off just the trailers since they don't give it justice. It really was one movie that didn't drag longer than 5mins during the last 2 years of movies I've seen. I highly recommend it if you were a fan of GI Joe in general. I'd love to catch some of the old cartoons and watch them even in my 30's I'd grab a bowl of cereal and enjoy em just like I did when I was a kid!

    The review is pretty accurate, and no the trailers don't give it justice, they make it seem like it could get better.
