G.I. Joe: Retaliation

As I said in my review for G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra, I had very little interest in checking out G.I. Joe: Retaliation. But based on the somewhat positive reviews for the sequel, I went ahead and picked up a copy from my Library. Even though Retaliation is worlds better than the first film, it's not without its faults. For starters, I just don't care about the G.I. Joe characters and it's mythology. As for the film, adding Dwayne Johnson is a step in the right direction. He automatically elevates any movie he is in to another level, which is a good thing. Even though Bruce Willis had very little to do here, it's still a plus having him on board.

But I think the movie got it right by actually cutting out some dead weight from the first film. Even though Rachel Nichols and Sienna Miller are nice to look at, their characters were boring. I didn't miss them at all. So, I absolutely welcome the addition of Adrianne Palicki who looked incredible! I have never seen her look this amazing before and that's saying something because she always looks amazing. But in this one, wow! Makes me wanna go back and watch some more FNL right now! Still not sure what the deal was in killing off Channing Tatum character within the first 15 minutes of the film. It would have made for a better movie if we got Johnson and Tatum working side by side. Oh well...

Worth a Rent at best. Better than the first movie, but far from perfect. Film is a bit "dirtier" meaning it doesn't play like a Saturday Morning Cartoon like the other one did.

My mind just broke somehow, seeing Bruce Willis with a Cobra lapel pin on with Snake Eyes in the background... I just kept thinking "what is HAPPENING?"
