Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The summer isn't over yet! Landing in movie theaters everywhere this weekend is G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, yet another big summer action movie based on a Hasbro toyline. Of course, the big question is, as always, if it's any good? Was Stephen Sommers the right choice for director? Did the cast ensemble do well? Or was it just a cheesy piece of crap not even worthy of the ticket price? Was it fun and entertaining or just an eye-sore and glossy disaster? After months debate, it's time to speak up! Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of G.I. Joe!
To fuel the fire, I wasn't the biggest fan of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra at all, really. I will admit that it was fun, very fun, and if I were 10 or 12 years old, this would probably be my favorite movie of the summer. But since I'm a lot older, I can see right through all that. It's such a ridiculously cheesy mess, that sometimes it's hard to even enjoy the fun. The performances were all utter crap, the script was trash, the dialogue was bad, and the CGI was pretty shitty as well. But then again, the action was fun and it was occasionally amusing, but all-in-all, it just wasn't my cup o' tea. If you're a G.I. Joe fan, you'll probably love it, but I'm not one.
What did you think of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra? Good summer fun or cheesy, awful crap?
