G.I. Joe: Retaliation – Movie review

04 Apr


G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the second installment in a franchise based on a popular line of toys created by Hasbro. In this sequel the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.

A sequel in Hollywood movies is rarely a box office hit, and doesn’t always appeal to the audience. But this movie ended up collecting nearly 80 million worldwide in its first weekend, even when it’s not even close to 10% of its first installment. A complicated story line which is not needed as everyone knows G.I.Joes’s are there to save the world in the end. Lots of talky portions and less Action sequences (except for the snow mountain fight and the climax sequence) make it tough to sit through the film. Releasing this film in 3D is only to charge you more through the 3D glasses, not a sequence in the film was shot intended for 3D viewing.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is still an overall disappointing film. The cast alone makes you to sit through the film. Bruce Willis’s gives some comic relief to GI Joe’s team which was needed whenever there wasn’t a gun fight.

I give it 4/10
