G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Action Adventure Sci-Fi Thriller


 

An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer.

In an already crowded genre, it takes a lot for a sci-fi action flick to stand out. It requires clever script-writing, restraint in the special effects department and quality acting. This film has none of those elements, and is therefore a forgettable, mediocre experience. The dialogue is so bad it's hard to sit through, and is punctuated every 10 minutes by an action sequence so over-produced it seems cartoon-ish. For die-hard actions fans only!
