So anyone seen it?

We saw it this afternoon. I have to say I liked it a lot better than I thought I would.
It's not 100% faithful to either the cartoon or the comics, but a lot of the things that make GI Joe as cool as hell for us as kids, and what we still love as adults is are all there...underwater bases, flying gliders, rocket snowmobiles, hi-tech jet fighters...yep you get all that & more! So it's basically a big ass live action cartoon with lots of cool shit.

Sure some of the shit they were flinging at us didn't make any sense at all (jabbing huge needles in a guys brain to get his last memory?? WTF?), and there wasn't much serious acting. Sienna Miller looked damn hot, but this Channing Tatum dude...mofo had the same damn blank expression for the whole thing. Somehow I get the feeling he might be Dolph Lundgren's love child.
Meanwhile Chris Eccleston just acted like an evil Dr. Who and Marlon Wayans was basically there trying his hardest to be Will Smith...and not very well. Not at all.
But hey the action was pretty damn cool with some nifty special effects and crazy ass action shots and a couple of pretty intense kills for a PG-13 movie, and at least it was fun without being a total juvenile insult like Transformers 2 was.

I recommend seeing it. It's fun.
Personally, I'm hoping this does well so maybe we get a sequel with more supporting characters. Quick Kick ftw!

So now you know, and knowing is half the battle Smile

From the minute i saw the trailer I knew this film was just going to be a pile of mindless fun and that is good enough for me to watch it LOL

There are some films that you know arent going to be epic so you canj ust switch off and watch them.

TF2 tried to take itself serious and failed misrebly Neutral

Ill watch tomorrow after work

And Bay went too berserk with this last one. I mean really, the cast iron balls? The female assassin?
Yo Spielberg or someone should've held him in check.

SPOILER BELOW!
Quote :
The one complaint I have with the movie is the overall lack of Cobra Commander, and the kinda weird origin they gave him.
So he & Baroness are brother & sister? And Baroness was engaged to Duke?
But since this is an origin story I guess we'll see the real deal in the sequel. Destro's mask looks like it's gonna be pretty badass, too. Looks like they used some CGI to make his mouth really move like in the cartoon. And supposedly Sommers said in an interview CC will have the mirror mask. He won't wear the hood cause the studio thinks that looks too much like a KKK.
