G.I. Joe Retaliation (2013)


Dwayne Johnson
D.J. Cotrona
Lee Byung-hun

Directed by Jon M. Chu

Starts in the path of mediocrity, takes you down the valley of stupidity, makes you think there is more to this disjointed story, and then fools you to believe the cast is more than it seems; then when you think you have had enough, it drops you down the hole  of impossibility and leaves you with one question…

“Could this movie be any worse?”

Sadly it was. Here is a sorry excuse for a movie based on the Hasbro’s toy series “The G.I Joe”, I actually felt the first G.I Joe movie The Rise of Cobra was over rated, but then I see this one and I think the first should have been given more respect than it got. The acting was crappy the disjointed stories felt like they will never meet and when they finally do, I ended up wishing they didn’t.
Bruce Willis is in this movie for a reason I don’t quite understand, and then Dwayne Johnson is also added, all this to me is just to boost sales. I’m saying the truth don't let the posters fool you Bruce Willis had little to nothing to do in this film.

Some of the old cast members from the first movie were called back; they include Channing Tatum, Arnold Vosloo, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, and Lee Byung-hun all reprising their roles from the first film.

The brief summary of the plot has our Joes up against their old enemy Cobra but this time he seems to be smarter Cobra found a way (while imprisoned) to infiltrate the United States presidency. He did this by having the president kidnapped and replacing him with Zartan. Now Zartan is now the new president of the United Utates and he ordered an air strike to kill off the Joes. After major casualties only Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) and Flint (D.J. Cotrona) survived and they decided to get their revenge.

Meanwhile the Arashikage clan sent Snake Eyes (Ray Park) to go capture the renegade Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) to answer for the death of his uncle.

Somehow these two stories intertwine and at the end the good guys win, nothing special about that.

This movie is just full of fast paced action scenes that don’t leave behind enough juice for you to value them (there is no lasting impression).

If you have enough spare time in your hands, I advise you catch up on some sleep and forget seeing this movie


  1. I dont like this review. The complaints made against the film don't hold any water. Since when was G.I. Joe about the story? It's like complaining that Transformers is crappy because the story and acting is not good. Seriously?

  2. How?...
    If there is no story, then all we have is just action scenes happening for no reason, a good story is what makes the movie standout memorable.

    And comparing this to Transformers, Haba! The Transformers had a better storyline than this. Sorry but i'm a fan of good acting and good story not just pointless and disjointed action scenes

  3. Kai!!! This is too harsh my broda!

    I think its a good watch and its only gonna get bera...


  4. oh my God, i hope you are wrong and they will not make a part 3
