G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra


USA 2009, 118 minutes
Dir. Stephen Sommers
Genres: Science Fiction, Action/Adventure


Aroview: SFX heavy live-adaptation of the popular toy franchise sees the G.I. Joe super-soldiers take on a corrupt arms dealer and the mysterious organization known as 'Cobra.'

Plot is discarded fairly quickly in favour of wall-to-wall CGI and loud noises, high-tech gadgets provide mild entertainment, and the cast is mostly good looking. Nothing else to report, other than this is marginally better than comparable money-soaked spectacle TRANSFORMERS 2: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, by virtue of having a shorter running time.
