MOVIE REVIEW:G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will perhaps be appreciated by fans, but
critics won't stand the laughable performances and the impassable
storyline. Cool-looking action scenes will simply not cut it anymore
these days, movies like Transformer or produced by Michael Bay will not
be appreciated by critics and soon fans will forget them too.
Therefore, producing a film with good storyline and great action is
important. G.I. Joe failed to deliver both aspects in some way.
An insufficient amount action and confusing storyline made G.I. Joe a
favorite at the Razzie.

Plastic and pointless. Could it be any different? This is exactly the
kind of boredom you have to expect from a movie based… on a toy line.
G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra tells us a story (I guess) of a counter
terrorist organization that can't manage to prevent a terrorist
organization to destroy the Eiffel Tower as a sample of how united
statian society (or a ancestrally resented scotchman) despises
France… that's all I could get before I stop thinking in order to try
and enjoy mediocrity, which I couldn't.
One possibility is that the shooting, blasting, explosiveness and
silliness were so massive that I miss the plot, which can only leads me
to the action. There is a flood of those scenes, many of them
unjustified, all of them mediocre. The acting was anything but bearable
and Dennis Quaid couldn't even believe himself. This is where I stop
and begin to ask to myself: why the hell did I watched and then
reviewed a movie I knew, even before I learned they were going to make
it, was going to be a plot less silly-kiddie/teenage flick? Damn,
because it's my moral duty to denounce this cultural crime, and because
I can exercise my writing with something so easy to stomp.
A positive comment about the Joes?
Well, Sienna Miller and Rachel
Nichols look damn hot, but only a menage a trois with the
aforementioned girls would give a little degree of decency to this
fraud only watchable if you're in the mood for a really bad movie
filled with ridiculous outfit and poor designs.
G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra: it's more entertaining playing with the
actual action figures than watching this trash.

I thought long and hard about how I wanted to approach writing a review
of this movie. I could blame it all on the producers or the director or
the writers or even the actors. To be fair, I am going to have to
evenly disperse the blame factor equally to all. THE PLOT: The process
of setting up who and how GI Joe and Cobra are and how they got started
is just a jumbled mess. Its so all over the place that you feel like
they are not explaining enough and just making it to convenient. Like
we should just accept this and move on. Fine, but how about developing
this in a more cohesive fashion. I really felt insulted by the gimmicks
presented here. UNESSACARY TANGENTS. Ugh. The whole sequence with the
origin of "Snake eyes" was just tacked on. This too was rushed and
would have served better in a sequel. THE ACTING. The biggest star in
this movie was Dennis Quaid. Mr. Sellout himself. Man he has been doing
so many sub-par movies over the years that I think he has done
irrevocable harm to his career. He brings absolutely nothing to the
table here. Not that they give him much to work with. The rest of the
actors are completely forgettable and that "Wayans" actor, I cant
remember his first name I just know he is the weakest actor of that
family, just gets annoying after awhile. SPECIAL EFFECTS. Fair at best.
A few good shots but mostly not worth it. it. OVERALL. The whole movie
just doesn't work. They fall into the classic trap of thinking that
just because this is based off a pop culture Icon that it should be
able to float no matter what. WRONG! This movie collapsed from
beginning to end. Could they have salvaged it? Only if they had scraped
this whole direction and started from scratch.
If you like GI JOE. Go watch the series.|||
This movie is very under-rated for the reason I don't know. G.I Joe
however wasn't too hyped, it made much more sense and it was much more
satisfying in my opinion. People who did not know anything about GI Joe
before they saw the movie, would have understood what GI Joe is all
about after seeing it. The best thing about this movie was that it
wasn't just another senseless crash and burn American flick…. It
stayed to its roots of the franchise and did exactly what the theme of
the GI Joe universe demands. It was a movie which was just what i
expected it to be from the trailer.
All the negative reviews are fake in my point of view and it will be
better if u don't fool urselves by believing these crap negative
