Movie Review: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

I and my cousin Willie watched G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra today at the mall. I have read and heard a lot of great things about the movie so I decided to watch it with Willie.

I have vivid memories of G.I. Joe toys that I used to play with my brothers when we were kids. I don't really like playing dolls on my early years. My dolls are just placed by my mom in the display cabinets. They got ruined when my younger brother decided to get them out of the cabinet and dismantle them. He was a curious kid and usually do it on all toys especially my dolls. I really didn't mind him doing it on the dolls. My mom was the one who got mad when she saw the damage and my brother ended up getting spanked.

Anyways, back to G.I. Joe. The movie was great! It's about bad people who created destructive weapons to take control over the world. G.I. Joes are the ones who can stop them since they have futuristic machines and weaponry that can match the enemies' equipments. They also got amazing auto and auto accessories, even cool accelerator suits. Very futuristic setup, indeed!

Channing Tatum's portrayal of Duke - the no. 1 Joe was superb! The last movie I remember him doing was Step Up 2 where he did a lot of crazy dance moves. As one of the G.I. Joes, he's got great action stunts too! Duke was a U.S. Army who, together with his friend Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) was tasked to deliver the warheads - a nanotechnology-based weapon that can destroy a whole city and was created by James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston). They were ambushed by the Baroness Ana Lewis (Sienna Miller) who happened to be Duke's ex-fiance. They were rescued by the G.I. Joes. Since Ana was involved in the ambush, Duke decided to become a G.I. Joe.

Guess who won in the end??? Well, apparently the movie hasn't ended yet. I am looking forward for more action and exciting futuristic setup in the sequel.
