G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Grégory Fitoussi, Leo Howard, Byung-hun Lee, David Murray, Kevin J. O’Connor,

My good friend Derek was in Glasgow the other day and we always grab a bite, a beer and a movie or a show. It was Derek’s turn to pick the movie and the options were GI JOE or Final Destination.

The first two Final Destinations were ok but the last one was obvious and I thought had a weak story so we went with GI Joe.

IF you are male and under the age of 10, Then yes I can see how it might be fun if you are above this age my suggestion is do not bother, go to the dentist it would be more fun. (The only caveat to the above is if your a dad taking the kids).

The film was full of action and flash effects but the story (which had the potential to be more) was weak. I don’t believe in spoilers so will not go into details.

I was surprised to see Dennis Quaid and Christopher Eccleston (with the worst Scottish accent I think I have heard to date) in what was basically a film length toy advert.

Again this is only my opinion (although Derek may agree).

    Ive seen the trailer for this movie it looked promising although Im not that much of a GI Joe fan, it also has relation to Transformers 2. Most of the movie was crashing bashing and some explosions but it also had an indepth story line. It was great! Great review.
