    I went into this movie with the absolute lowest expectations. I did not expect to enjoy this movie. It turned out to be quite entertaining. Don't let the tv ads turn u away from this one.

    So I was talking to Mirax today about the last battle with storm shadow / snake eyes...


    SPOILER!!! SKIP THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE!

    And she totally missed stormshadow snapping his swords together to make a single double bladed staff. As with that entire scene... it really seemed very Ep I... and I liked it! Now I have to figure how to make my storm shadow swords shap together as well!!!



    END SPOILER! YOU CAN RESUMER READING NOW!!!

    You had mentioned those silver things on his back. It looked to me like he only wore them in that final scene with Stormshadow. Almost as though he knew he would need that that one time but not any other...odd.

    I did think it was funny to see both Brendan Fraiser and "Beni" from the Mummy in the movie...
    The Mummy himself was in it too. He played Zartan. And Heavy Duty was in The Mummy Returns. I love The Mummy movies and I liked seeing those guys in there. Especially Brendan Fraser. I wish he had a bigger part, he's a great actor.

    My husband and I really liked the movie. He can't decide if he wants to be Storm Shadow or Snake Eyes. And I'm sure he'll try to talk me into being the Baroness. Kudos, to Sienna Miller for kicking butt in skin tight vinyl or whatever it was and high heels.

    I know we both appreciated that they kept it clean and there was no vulgarness or sexual undertones. I do remember thinking that there was a lot of language and maybe a little too much blood for a "family movie", but we enjoyed it. The main reason I went was because I grew up with G.I. Joe and because Ray Park was in it. He was freaking awesome!!!!!

    Saw it yesterday with the misses and we both enjoyed it. It was a fun way to spend a hot, Sunday morning. Of course, just about everything was preposterous to the extreme, but I think Art nailed it in that it should've been either a pure kid's movie or a more adult action flick (with more believable content).

    I could go on and on about this or that, I'd love to discuss Rex, but don't want to spoil anything.

    Costume wise, I was really intrigued by the Neo-Vipers. The static burst in their mics reminded me of Stormtroopers, and I came to actually like their design, whereas before I hated it. Might make a fun project to tackle later this year, and besides, I already have the New Rock boots they were wearing. That's almost $250 there.

    The Neo-Vipers were pretty cool. I liked their "backstory" and their armor could withstand a lot of bullet hits to it. Very powerful.

    Rambling on....
    It wasn't the GI JOE comic/toy line I grew up on, but as a stand alone movie for a new generation of young boys and their action figures, it was decent enough. I didn't absolutely love it, but I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would going into it. Snake-Eyes has always been my favorite character of all time and he was portrayed well by the always awesome Ray Park. The rest of the JOEs didn't really do much for me. I did like Scarlett's laser crossbow thing a lot, though. I thought both Storm Shadow and Baroness were pretty cool in the movie, but (as I did before the movie came out) still completely hated the Cobra Commander helmet with a passion.

    I did like the few nods to the comics....Breaker blowing the bubble with gum like he did all the time in the comics, the big 99 on the aircraft carrier showing it to be the U.S.S. FLAGG from the comics, stuff like that.

    I've been rocking my 1985 Snake-Eyes costume for 11 years now, so after seeing the movie, I am totally doing a "Snow Snake-Eyes", especially since I live in Michigan where we have winter.

    Saw it and like it. Not old Joe but a reinvision for sure.
    The only thing I have to say is that there was a sea battle and were was shipwreck? I wanted that salty dog with the parrot.
    Also didnt the movie remind you of Halo when Duke was suiting up? Masterchief anyone LOL. Also Cobra's mask reminded me of Dr. Doom form the Fantistic 4 movie, just clear.

    Just got back with the wife from seeing it...and honestly...if you don't mind a few small liberties to make a 30 minute cartoon commercial for a toy from 1985 into a 2 hour 2009 'action flick to sell more toys to our kids'...and expect it to be as such...you'll walk out satisfied. We both enjoyed it! I agree that Ray Park, Stormshadow and the Baroness definately stole the show. We both felt that it was really refreshing to go to a movie like this and not get bombarded with unneeded cursing, poor attempts at "ghetto slang" and overused sexuality.
    Also, it helps to always keep our rose-colored glasses from way back when in their case when going into these types of things.
    Definately take the kids to this one. I plan to!

    It's every kids dream to have a daddy-heroe. Your son is a fortunate one.

    About the movie:

    I hated the Wayans guy, who ever told that guy he is funny?????

    I liked Snake Eye and Storm Shadows' fight scenes. :thumbup

    I was imppresed by the Baroness. she actually rulled.

    Since I wasn't expecting anything good or bad, and it turned out good enough, I enjoyed it very much, and saw it again at the Drive in.
