G.I. Joe: Rise Cobra (4/5)

I never really watched G.I. Joe growing up, but after seeing this film, I am going to *have* to get into the cartoons.  Rise of Cobra is a very fun film.

The main selling point is the action…and there is a lot of it.  Actually, for a film made by Hasbro, some of the violence seemed kinda brutal.  (not that I’m complaining or anything)  From brutal hand to hand combat, to big battles, to some of the most ridiculous car chases in history, this film is non-stop action.

The little bit of a story is pretty good, if you don’t take it too seriously.  Duke and his pal Ripcord are supposed to protect this super powerful weapon that can destroy any and everything.  The bad guys take said weapon, now they want to get it back so they join the “G.I. Joes” a group of the best fighters in the world.  Again, I cannot stress how much this film was not meant to be taken seriously.

Throughout the film they seem to mesh the typical campyness of today’s action movies with the campyness of 90’s animation.  And the result is a fun ride through insanity.  With huge sets, huge battles, and hilarious characters.

If you are looking for a fun-action packed way to spend an otherwise boring night, then G.I. Joe definitely deserves your attention.

    I actually enjoyed this film some what. I was little put off by how stupid it was, but at a certain point I started to have a lot of fun with it because it entered that (it’s not really a film anymore) status. I did enjoy it and it’s definitely a good rent.
