When they are attacked by thieves (led by Anastasia DeCobray, with whom Duke has history), they are saved by a top secret, international special forces unit known as “G.I. Joe”. The leader of G.I. Joe, General Abernathy (or Hawk) is on the trail of the thieves: an evil organization called “Cobra”. While Duke and Ripcord train to join the Joes, McCullen (“Destro”) is secretly working for Cobra and plotting to recapture his metal-eating “Nanomite” warheads. Duke and Ripcord (with help from Heavy Duty, Snake Eyes, and the rest of the Joes) must prove that they are Real American Heroes — by stopping the launch of these warheads before Cobra uses them to take over the world.
Plot: From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.

Crazy Adrenaline-Spiked Action All The Way!
After the Transformers, it’s G.I. Joe for more crazy summer action. Like Transformers, G.I. Joe (or Action Force) was also a brand of Hasbro toys featuring all kinds of combat figures and high-tech vehicles that fire a young boy’s imagination. At the height of its popularity in the 1980s, the Action Force brand spawned a cartoon series, a Marvel comic and even an animated movie before fading away in the early 1990s.
Now it is set to rival Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen at the box-office. I am not well acquainted with Action Force toys but I was totally immersed in the action right after the opening flashback. For those who have played with G.I. Joe toys as kids, this is definitely the chance to relive their wildest action fantasies…
The Plot: MARS Corporation, led by the dastardly James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston), has developed a ‘nanomite’ bomb that contains greenish particles capable of ‘eating’ metal and demolishing structures and vehicles in seconds. You can imagine that anyone who has the nanomite bomb will be able to control the world – which is what McCullen is trying to do with a secret organisation known as Cobra.
Sent out to get the bomb are the Baroness (Sienna Miller) and Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) and trying to stop them are the elite G.I. Joe team led by General Hawk (Dennis Quaid). Leading members of the Joes team are Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Scarlett (Rachel Nichols), Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Breaker (Saïd Taghmaoui). They are later joined by US Special Forces members, Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) who provide the movie with its love story, romantic interests and comic relief, not to mention fast-paced action and thrills.
The Review: Indeed, director Stephen Sommers and his scripters (Stuart Beattie, David Elliot and Paul Lovett) seem obsessed with wanting to throw in everything from James Bond-type action, villains, underwater sets and romance to Star Wars battles, weapons and awe-inspiring gadgets. Sommers spares no expense in getting the stunts and scenes he wants and most of them are ‘real cool’. Still, he takes time to provide the ‘backgrounds’ of the major characters, albeit in flashbacks so that they do not ‘clash’ with the main action and storyflow.
In the Transformers movies, the battle sequences are often blurred and confusing when we have trouble differentiating the good and bad robots. There is no such problem here. The chases and fight/stunt sequences are so spectacular and breath-taking – one of the most mind-boggling action pieces I have seen this summer. This especially applies to the Paris street chase sequence which has the Joes in accelerator suits hot on the heels of the Baroness in a reinforced Hummer.
Usually in action movies like this, performances take a back seat. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the chemistry between Tatum and Miller, and between Wayans and Nichols. Yeah, in the midst of all that zapping, clashing and crashing, Sommers wants us to know that ‘the heart still goes on’. And of course, he ends with an intriguing narrative hook – provided by a subplot involving Zartan (played by Arnold Vosloo).
It has its flaws but this is an adrenaline-spiked ‘Government-Issue’ fun ride from start to end. – By Lim Chang Moh
WARNING 80s G.I.JOE TV and Comic Book Fans BEWARE
This Movie is for people who saw the Commercials, and maybe played with the action figures when they were kids but never read or saw anything about G.I.Joe. When I first saw the trailer for this, I knew I had to see this movie, I was like a kid at Christmas and couldn’t wait for the morning to finally open the big present, only to find it was a rock… I would say a lump of coal, but at least that would be useful for something other than to throw at someone. Something I would like to do to the writers, director and producers of this movie… I don’t only want the money I wasted on this movie back, I want the time that was wasted on this movie. It doesn’t matter if you were a fan of the Comic book, or the TV show… I personally liked both, but where did they get the idea to make Cobra Commander and the Baroness brother and sister?? Oh yeah, and Cobra Commander was Dukes buddy? and the Baroness was Duke’s Fiancée?? I have an idea, let’s remake the Wizard of Oz, and have the wicked witch be the good guy and Dorothy be the evil villain… I think it will work as well as this movie… When I first see Snake Eyes, I think yes, this rocks… Little do I know they screw up every major development in the entire story line of either. It looks like they try to follow the comic book story line, except Scarlett is Ripcord’s love interest, she is not with Snake Eyes… There is so much I could talk about how awful this movie is, but I can’t. I didn’t care for the second Transformers Movie, but if I had to go watch either one of these two films again, it was a much better movie than this one. I warn all of you that have not seen this movie yet, do not go, if you love the TV show and the Comic Book. I don’t want to see anyone else disappointed like I am.
