fast paced but unbelievable. Wait for the video.
The movie was amazing! I was expecting it to be good and it exceeded all expecations I had. Great movie!
Thought the pacing was a little fast, but I thought the movie was great and it was amazing seeing FINALLY GI. Joe on the big screen.
Rate and Comment G.I. JOE - I guess I'm just a kid at heart because I generally enjoy science fiction and fantasy movies and movies where there is a lot of action. I was not disappointed with G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. "Hold on to your seats for a non-stop action thrill ride from start to finish" is what I felt as I was leaving the theatre and this morining I am still tingling. Dennis Quaid as General Wolf is interesting and serious as one would expect of a General. That they didn't make Quaid act like a little boy trying to take over for the younger men showed great restraint. Wayans as comic relief was excellent, not over the top as some of his brothers tend towards in their ow
popcorn summer blockbuster
It is a great summer movie, with "non-stop action", from beginning to end! I'm sure it will be a big blockbuster hit, especially with teenage boys!
While the storyline and acting left a little something to be desired, I really enjoyed this movie. I think people should just take it for what it is, a great action flick that's fun to watch!!! I'm definitely looking forward to the next GI Joe flick!!
this movie lacked so much imagination and creativity. completely underestimated the audience by over explaining every single minute plot detail, there was no suspense and it was missing any sort of intensity
Like that movie a lot...lots of actions and good storyline. I would go see it again anytime !
While the movie was entertaining, it didn't quite have the wow factor that captures the imagination. The special effects were well done and the characters will appeal to any fans of the G.I. Joe series. The storyline just didn't quite do it. All in all, it was an entertaining two hours!
Lots of action - a little far fetched but my 13 year old really enjoyed it. Loved Channing Tatum
now this is an awesome movie
Great movie for G.I. Joe fans. brought my boyfried (retired military). He said the East Africa combat scene was very realistic.
I really enjoyed the film. The action and effects were awesome. But the character development was good. I found when things started to get a bit 'cheesy' they pulled back and went into the action. Its a movie that I will recommend to friends and anyone, and one that I will purchase when it comes onto dvd. Can't wait for the next one.
It was really well done but it was also very predictable!
I give it 4 stars for the action and special effects. Acting is only average but this is an action flik!
The best action packed movie I ever saw. Will definetly go watch it again in the theatre. It was non stop action from the start to the very end. Awesome job done on this one!
While some of the action sequences were tough to follow visually (lots going on), there was plenty to keep me entertained. I really enjoyed the cast of characters, the special effects, and the humorous moments. The set-up for a sequel at the end was great. I can't wait to see/hear Snake Eyes sometime down the road. This film was a good start to what could be a very successful series of movies.
extremely fun summer click. a good way to end off the summer..
We enjoyed this movie very much!
It was a very fun summer movie! Brings back alot of childhood memories of the cartoon series
Loved it...lots of action!!
Great movie if you are looking for action and cool hich tech toys, not a lot of substance but I wasn't expecting it from a movie based on an 80's kids toy line.
Lost's of action, it's a great movie.
GIJoe was even better then I expected it to be! Amazing actions, insane effects & good layout. The story flowed nicely & kept me on the edge of my seat!
Bring the same imagination you had as a kid playing with action figures to this film and you're in for a fun ride.
Easy to follow plot of the movie even without background knowledge about GI Joe.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie! Tons of action and great use of the special effects -- not overdone. Highly recommended.
G.I. Joe is a great movie for its genre! The action is continuous, the characters follow the cartoons from 20 years ago and the production/CGI is flawless. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this movie, and look forward to watching it again. Please keep in mind this is an adaptation of a kids toy franchise (that turned into a cartoon)- when viewed with that in mind, this film is knock-out success. Enjoy!
I believe that movie was a good modern take on the 80s cartoon, but moving the GI Joe to a gobal force (not a american hero) was a mistake, it seemed odd. Also I think the casting was really off. But the movie made up for it by touching up on a number of the GI Joe story lines (Soild Snake, Duke's love story, the rise of cobra). I think overall it's more then we can ask for an update of a 80s icon.
Lots of action, great special effets. GI Joe has definetly changed from when I was little. I would love for my little boy to see it but he is only 6 and I think it was a little to violent for him.
It was an awesome movie, i wasn't expecting it so real and dramatic, i will be buying the movie if i don't win it,
I watched this movie in China, since I am currently travelling in China. Due to that fact, I watched GI Joe a day ahead of most people in Canada. Thereby, what I like to say is that it is an excellent action flick! The special effects are great, but not as great as Transformers 2. However, its story plot is better than T2 and way more action sequences than you could have imagined! Strongly recommended and definitely waiting for the second sequel!
This movie is non-stop action. There story isn't confusing, allowing you to focus on the insane action, CG, scenes. If you're in the mood for an over-the-top, popcorn flick, this is the movie for you.
It was surprisingly good. The previews of it, depicted a lame movie, but I was happy to be mistaken. It kept me interested throughout every minute! Can't wait for number two!
Filled with stupid action, like a jet chasing down missiles.
Boring special effects, bad acting, incoherent plot.
In a ~2 hour movie, when the film ends and you didn't even see time has passed, this is a good sign!! I liked a lot the multiple rivalities between specific characters, beside the main rivality between the 2 clans. Great movie anyway!!
Great popcorn flick! Forget what the critics are saying.. it's a fun, light and action packed movie. A total reboot of GI Joe, but none the less great!!
It was epic, i'm going to see it again!
It Was Great!!
