Originally intended to be released in the summer of 2012, G.I. Joe: Retaliation was pulled back because, presumably, they wanted to convert it to 3D, but many suspected it was to add more time for star Channing Tatum after his box-office domination that year. Well, wrong on both ...
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. -- (C) Paramount

Compared to the first movie, 'G.I. Joe : Retaliation' wasn't meet everybody's expectation of a better sequel.. The death of Duke character at the beginning of the movie, and then the change of the leader into Dwayne Johnson wasn't as smooth as they predicted.. Truthfully, I must ...

They certainly made great strides over their first try, but it still just isn't quite there yet. Shades of awesome, and a whole lot of filler. The action is decent enough, but never quite feels up-to-par. The tone of the humor is established from the get-go, with lots of goofy ...

While no better than a series of elaborately choreographed music videos with a bunch of uninspiring teen movie clichés to fill out their running times, Jon M. Chu proved with his two "Step Up" films that he could really direct a high energy, color saturated set piece. With "G.I....

So just a couple of people decided to come back for the sequel and even then one of them doesn't stick around all that long and you know a film is bad when Marlon Wayans doesn't even want to be in it. Instead of writing a story they seem to have just written several action scenes...

After the abortion that was the first movie, thought this was going to be just as bad. But in all fairness, it was a pretty decent action movie with some decent set pieces. Tongues firmly in cheeks and doesn't take itself too serious.

The first film was a horrendous CGI filled mess that offered nothing in terms of intelligence or originality, although its scope and grandiose finale did warrant some positive feedback. Have people learned from the previous film? well no, is it me or does every action film these ...

Retaliation's a confusing one; it's a sequel AND a reboot. I don't see the need for a reboot; the first one was, albeit, a forgettable flick, but it wasn't such a stinkball. Regardless, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" dropped into theaters and it delivered exactly what it intended to do:...

A forgettable movie with forgettable acting.
Not even this action packed drival will keep you entertained!

It's better than the first movie, way better and keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way to the end. A big, high-octane and adrenaline-soaked action-packed thrill-ride that's just a total blast. An explosively exciting, wickedly funny and tremendously entertaining adventur...
