G.I Joe: The Rise of the Cobra


I remember watching the cartoon series on TV when I was a kid but don’t remember if I actually liked it. Heck, I don’t even remember who’s the main character of the title. And I certainly did not really like the movie. They have popular veteran actors like Dennis Quaid and Brandon Fraser in show but playing smaller roles: WTF!! Sure, there are two hot chicks showing cleavages here and there but the show is really uninspiring. Corny dialogues, so-so action scenes, predictable storyline and plot esspecially the ending which totally reminded me of one of the X-Men movies. However, the game-like CGI special effects and the chasing scene are pretty awesome though, I give that to them. But in overall, to me this show is just too common. Watchable, but lame. I bet the hardcore fans of the cartoon series are pretty disappointed. Heck, that’s needless to say ain’t it. Almost all the cartoon/comic/games adapted movies are massively disappointing.

Just thought about the power suits in the show. I think they might have got the idea from the game Crysis. Then the nanomites, metal eating robot bugs, I think they copied that from the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still. The face injection thingy, from Wolverine: The Origins. And as I said the X-Men-like ending (the president plot) was probably inspired by the makers of this film cause’ according to the movie poster, it says, “From the makers of X-Men… etc”. Guess they ran out of new ideas and hence ripping off from other people’s and their own old ideas here and there.

Rating: 1 / 5

I dunno what this guy/girl is trying to prove by linking this on his/her own review of this movie.
