The upcoming release of G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is really tough for me. I’m a huge fan of G.I. Joe and you’d think I’d be interested in seeing something G.I. Joe on the big screen, but I’m really dreading it. There’s only been one good thing I’ve seen really (Destro’s mask) and a whole hell of a lot of bad. Look, I’m a forgiving nerd. I liked a lot of movies that were dismissed my peers like T3, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Starship Troopers, etc. I just can’t shake the feeling that as forgiving as I am, G.I. Joe is going to be a gigantic turd. I’m really trying to withhold judgment until I see it, but does this look like a good movie to anyone?
No, it looks like they took a bunch of twelve year old boys, a couple of extreme sports guys, a few dude bros, and a Oakland Raiders fan and crafted what they thought would be the coolest movie of all time. Those suits just look ridiculous. In fact it looks like they tried their best to recreate the look and feel of the Van Damme Street Fighter movie.
