Does This Final New G.I. Joe Trailer Convince You to See It?

G.I. Joe Trailer

Yet another trailer for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra has hit. I don't completely think this was a final attempt to build buzz and get everyone to forget about the Stephen Sommers rumors, but rather just another trailer that might show in front of Transformers 2 next week as their very last in-theater push. Unfortunately, it's not an improvement at all. In fact, they've added more of the comedic, cheesy scenes that make me want to see this even less. Transformers can pull off a few of these cheesy scenes, and I know G.I. Joe should be able to, as well, but I'm just not digging it. Though I do really want to hear what everyone else thinks of this!

Watch the newest trailer for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra:

[flv: 540 234]

You can also watch the first Super Bowl TV spot as well as the first full-length trailer at those two links.

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is directed by big action filmmaker Stephen Sommers, of The Jungle Book, Deep Rising, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and Van Helsing previously. The screenplay was co-written by Stuart Beattie, of Collateral, Derailed, and 30 Days of Night previously, as well as Skip Woods, of Swordfish and Hitman previously. The movie is based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe line of toys that debuted in 1964. Paramount will premiere G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra in theaters everywhere on August 7th this year.

still looks like crap

zach s on Jun 19, 2009


Where's Joseph ! ;__;

DarkPadme on Jun 19, 2009


at least it doesn't look like a steaming pile of crap anymore. now it is just crap.

R on Jun 19, 2009


yeah kinda lame. the very last line was somewhat comedic. Then again, I've got a few beers in me. It may take more than beers to sit through the whole thing tho

Nick Sears on Jun 19, 2009


Ill rent it.. maybe..

Jay on Jun 19, 2009


I'll rent the DVD when this comes out. Really don't feel like seeing this in theaters.

Joseph S. on Jun 19, 2009


Looks entertaining to say the least.

KenDoll on Jun 19, 2009


shittier than ever.

felipe on Jun 19, 2009


yeah, the DVD will entertain my dog when it comes out. genuine GI Joe frisbee! yeah!

felipe on Jun 19, 2009


why do they gotta keep showing the eiffel tower fall because of organic terrorism in every single trailer.

erik on Jun 19, 2009


Excellerator Suits = EPIC FAIL

nelson on Jun 19, 2009


why did they focus mostly on marlon wayans?

pimp on a stick on Jun 19, 2009


A: Nope

Dan W on Jun 19, 2009


Wow. So they turned off every fan-boy first, then they couldn't wrangle the action crowd. So, now they are turning the focus toward comedy? These are pathetic attempts to save this film. They could have avoided all of this if the first person to fund this movie would have said no to A) any of the Waynes bros. (unless it was an honest attempt to turn to legitimate acting), and B) gimmicky super suits. If this were an honest-to-god G. I. Joe movie, then we wouldn't have this problem. BUT, as this is not the case, this movie is going to fail and might possibly set a new world record for the worst sales ever. I will most definitely NOT see this film. I was very excited when this project was first announce, and since then, my enthusiasm has dwindled to a pathetic murmur in my head. People, please do not see this movie. Go see Transformers or go buy some of the great movies that have come out recently.

Angry Chief on Jun 19, 2009


I really don't see what the anger issue is here. This is here to entertain and that's what it will do. If everyone got what they wanted out of Hollyweird, there would be thousands of different versions of each and every movie. Honestly, I know it's everyone's right to bitch and moan but damn, if you think you could do better then get your asses backed by a studio and make yourselves a damn movie. Stop trying to give advice to everyone else on a movie that hasn't been seen yet. You really are not reaching anyone by telling them to not see it. quite honestly, who the fuck are you? Some kids or thirty something year olds living in your mom's basements? Your comments bring no credibility to your arguments.

Ariel on Jun 19, 2009


This movie looks so terrible, they would have been better off animateing it like TMNT. Deffinently won't be seeing this one.

McKenzie on Jun 19, 2009


@12 It's spelled Accelerator. The only epic fail here is your inability to spell.

really? on Jun 19, 2009


Lol who has the power to go to a studio and convince them to make such a movie unless its some idiot studio executive or producer.

JimD on Jun 19, 2009


In its defense, at least its not another remake or reboot.

JimD on Jun 19, 2009


Better but not good

moviekidmike on Jun 19, 2009



Dee on Jun 19, 2009


i don't know... people flame about it but frankly it doesn't look any worse than pretty much all the run of the mill comic book adaptations (dark knight, sin city, iron man excluded) most likely will slot somewhere around xmen1 but better than your X3s, spider man 4s, fantastic fours, daredevils, electras etc

Janny on Jun 19, 2009


Well I have to admit that trailer is the best I've seen so far but then again that's not saying much. If I can see it for free I will see it apart from that I have more productive things I can do with my time.

d1rEct on Jun 19, 2009


technically, this movie exists, but im trying to wipe it from my mind. they have achieved the unthinkable, they have made it that i would much rather watch a musical romance over an action movie. and a new low for the wayans bros? just terrible

harrison on Jun 19, 2009


Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in it and he's never done anything that wasn't completely awesome, so... I don't know!

crumb on Jun 19, 2009


Did any of you catch the Cartoon Network G.I. Joe animated move? THAT was good.

Angry Chief on Jun 19, 2009


Nope. Another flop. I usually stay away from movies that have Will Ferral, Eddie Murphy or any of the Wayans brothers.

Christopher Sullivan on Jun 19, 2009


I loved the show as a child. This looks about as cheesy and fun. Sign me up. It's GI Joe people. The Village People with guns. Of course it's cheesy. Alex, as the site owner you might consider the source material before lambasting a film.

Beatmiser on Jun 19, 2009


Looks like i will have the whole theater to myself. Looks like a fun movie. Wayans cracks me up. Hate tatum but oh well. Super excited for joseph gorden-levitt though so i am definetly going to see it in theaters. Very glad they have not show anything on him really.

duder on Jun 19, 2009


I'm gunna go see it. But based on everthing I've seen I'm not too sure it's gunna be a good movie. Problems I have with the movie so far... (in no order) 1. Super suits. ("real american heroes" don't need 'em.) 2. No shiny metal face Destro. (though I admit it could happen.) 3. Marlon Waynes. ('nuff said) 4. No mention what-so-ever of Cobra Commander. (if he's not in the movie I will riot)

Jeep-Fu on Jun 19, 2009


its funny how shallow some people are. jst coz alex posted the trailer does not convince him, everyone else seems to dsilike it too. i rem when the 1st trailer hit back feb su[erbowl. everyone was so excited and had great expectations i think it looks entertaining, i dont expect an masterpiece from a summer blockbuster. im going for te bad ass special effect. going for the cheese humor , if i want to watch a real film, i might as well watch from mmy movie collection. people are always tooo picky

PinkSushi on Jun 19, 2009


FLOP!!!! It seems like a really bad comedy thats trying to add really bad action.

tankmaster on Jun 19, 2009


GI Joe belongs in the sale bin and it's not even out yet.

Brandon on Jun 19, 2009


L to the A to the M to the E

Hitler on Jun 19, 2009


I think it looks like fun. Can't be any worse then Salvation, right?

Joan Fett on Jun 19, 2009


why can people be so wise to see that this is shit and yet look forward to Transformers. cant anyone see they equally look terrible.

Al on Jun 19, 2009


i dunno it might be my utter lack of taste/distinction but based on the trailers i've seen it appeals to the 4 year old in me cant wait!

twispious on Jun 19, 2009


Hmmm... would I sit through this? Maaaybe. Would I pay to do so? Not on your life.

MJC on Jun 19, 2009


same footage we have seen over and over again. smoke this movie

DoomCanoe on Jun 19, 2009


....i know someone else said this but why are we seeing the eiffel tower fall over and over...who cares...OMG GREEN CRAP CAN EAT THE EIFFEL TOWER THEY HAVE SOME AWESOME WEAPONS SEND IN THE JOES

tehrooroo on Jun 19, 2009


Looks exactly like something Billington will love.

Maskatron on Jun 19, 2009


why r u all exited for dumb, cheesy, action movies like tranformers and 2012 but u all hate this. im looking forward to all of these becuase i no that hardly any action movies nowadays are actually good, instead there just awsome and thats ok with me. if im looking for a really good movie, ill see a drama.

bob on Jun 19, 2009


number 32 is 100 percent right

bob on Jun 19, 2009


The only thing I could see them doing is having the suits get destroyed early on and they have to actually be their characters and not retards in suits. Snake Eyes doesn't need no stinkin' accelerator suit.

w00t!!! on Jun 19, 2009


*** Technically this movie doesn't suck, but if it did it would have Channing Tatum and a Waynes brother. *** Nothing wrong with them, just very poor casting... and CGI... and writing... Looks like.

J.White on Jun 19, 2009


Looks pretty awful. I'll see it. But I wish this was, I dunno, ANYTHING like the GI Joe of my childhood. But yeah, what, $9.50? Let's do it.

Andrew on Jun 19, 2009


Looks like shit. Hate to say it. This trailer did no good in changing my mind on that.

Marty Martin on Jun 19, 2009


Yeeeaaaahhhh!!! Bad acting, cheesy effects, transparent story, and excessive destruction. I'm in. It wouldn't be the first movie this year to rape me and my senses to the tune of $12. At least it's not sporting the FOX moniker. I for one will see just how bad this movie is (or isn't). Besides, Baroness looks amazing.

Jay on Jun 19, 2009


Yeaahhh CGI-Joe *fg*

Ed von Schleck on Jun 20, 2009


You morons actually think this movie will flop? I'm literally laughing my ass off at you nitwits. Do you actually think this movie was made for you 20 - 30 something fools? Oh dear god help me I'm dying. XD

nem on Jun 20, 2009


amen 49 I won't lie this movie looks terrible and yet I am definitly going to go see it I love crappy sci fi action movies and sometimes (don't get me wrong I don't believe this is the case with this one) they are so bad they're good. but only way to know is to go see for myself ps a FOX production of this would make Last Action Hero look like the greatest summer action flick of all time

kiran on Jun 20, 2009


my top five list of worst director's around at the moment. 5. Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand; Rush Hour 3) 4. Gavin Hood (X-men Origins - Wolverine) 3. Rob Cohen (The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor; Stealth; XXX) 2. McG (Terminator Salvation; Charlie's Angels 1 & 2) 1. Stephen Sommers. (The Mummy Returns; Van Helsing) I absolutely hate this guys films. Van Helsing was the last straw. I will never subject myself to any of his films ever again.

Last Son on Jun 20, 2009


this looks like a ok movie, but it has nothing to do with GI JOE.. I dont get it, but if i go in thinking like this, i may enjoy it.

bigabe on Jun 20, 2009


should render the vfx.what, that's almost final? Noooo.... Stephen Sommers, what are you doing?are kids doing your movie?

flybot on Jun 20, 2009


You know what...This movie should of been called '' Delta 6 '' since this is clearly going to be a rendition of the cartoon G.I. Joe Sigma 6 era. I would of loved it cause, there's nothing of my real american heroes in that movie I'll enjoy...except Snake Eyes vs Storm Shadow...might be my highlight on this flick. People...if you haven't seen G.I. Joe: Resolute...the new cartoon for the 25th anniversary of the Joes, Thats the modern version we should of gotten in film . go see it on you tube here Trust'll enjoy it and your childhood heroes will never look so bad ass!!!! Yo Joe!!

Lazarus on Jun 20, 2009


Man, this is going to be the biggest box office bomb since Stealth. Paramount and Spyglass will lose at least $100 million ...

Vic on Jun 20, 2009


looks better the dragon ball

steve on Jun 20, 2009


Only reason I'll go see this is because an old friend with whom my brother and I used to play GI Joe said we should go for old times sake. Beyond that, looks really freaking great. I mean bad.

Justin on Jun 20, 2009


The cheesyness is what's going to make this movie work.

Darunia on Jun 20, 2009


no. 60 got it right, its the cheesyness that makes this film.

Darrin on Jun 20, 2009


#18 uh oh, Grammar Nazi! The ultimate comeback! Since they decided that Marlon Wayans needs to make the final cut of the movie. This is not worth watch by any standards.

L on Jun 20, 2009


I'll see it for Rachel Nichols. Yes it looks very chessy but let the film come out before you judge it. chuck on Jun 20, 2009


How can they have trailers for this movie that don't show Cobra? Really...?

jason on Jun 20, 2009


hell no!!!!

goosehorn on Jun 20, 2009


I can't help but laugh at the people that call this rubbish and transformers "awesome", christ people it's like splitting hairs.

jules on Jun 20, 2009


Angry Chief - You're right previously they attempted to hit with action thinking these dame accelerator suits would spark some type of interest and "Oh snap's" from the crowd.....which I think I can speak for everyone it doesn''s the lamest way the studio, writers, and director can make the Joe's some way be superior....anyway if I do check it out it's only because of Baroness, Sienna Miller is looking tight in that black outfit, besides that weakkkkkkkk Opening Weekend, no more $47.50mm

Blue & Orange NY on Jun 20, 2009


Ok this is obviuously a "leave your brain at the door and go be entertained" LOL

NeoSlyfer on Jun 20, 2009


Itยดs so bad that i feel sad for the guys who worked behind the camera...same happened in 10,000 BC

pipo on Jun 20, 2009


The best part of that trailer was that they used a song by Hollywood Undead.

EPICponyz on Jun 20, 2009


@32 you are 100% right. But still they had to show more new footage for this final trailer as we have seen too much of those in previous trailer n tv spots.

Hellboy on Jun 20, 2009


PinkSushi & Hellboy, I agree with some points but again they lost me when they introduced the Super suits, which is BS

Blue & Orange NY on Jun 20, 2009


Still looks lame to me. I also don't like the cast at all. I just can't see past the "Scary Movie" and "Step Up" characters of the two supposed badasses. *shrugs* If you can't sympathize with the lead characters, a movie is already lost. Not even amazing SFX can save it. Oh wait, the SFX in this movie look bad, too. =P

SuicidalOptimist on Jun 20, 2009


I googled the word "corny" and this trailer played.

I have anxiety on Jun 20, 2009


At least the comedy worked. /sarcasm.

Branden on Jun 20, 2009


Yet again my childhood memories will make me watch this.................. Watching another movie and sneaking in after to watch GI JOE God I love RED HEADS!!!!!

SHANEDAV on Jun 20, 2009


some fucked up nerds and fanboys here. give it a chance or otherwise fuck off.

lol on Jun 20, 2009


@64 "How can they have trailers for this movie that don't show Cobra?" That's the reason I think people are spazzing out over nothing. There are HUGE chunks of this film that have been kept under wraps.

Beatmiser on Jun 20, 2009


This is gonna be a HUGE HIT

Blue Silver on Jun 20, 2009


Its like they've raped my childhood.

Parker on Jun 20, 2009


its a film of a kids cartoon.............. dont expect Saving private ryan here and just give it a chance. It may suck it may burn your eyes out of their socket or it may be a whole lot of fun and be a great popcorn movie ...... Who knows till you actually watch it For gods sake i gave Street Fighter the legend of Chun Li a chance and boy did that suck !! But i dont regret giving it a try.... Its half the fun of the Cinema !! If we as viewers dont take a chance do you think the studios will ?? I sure as hell know they wont if ticket sales dotn happen there will not be any risk taking fun movies made it will be reboots and sequels forever !!

Fenris on Jun 20, 2009


This looks worse than Wolverine which the absolute lowmark for a summer blockbuster.

Shige on Jun 20, 2009


If the end of the trailer didn't say "G.I. Joe" then I wouldn't even of known that this was a G.I. Joe movie. With that being said, it looks like a kind of cool summer, CG action movie. So whenever I see it (most likely not in the theater) I won't be going in with the expectations for it to be a G.I. Movie, just mindless eye candy that hopefully I'll be able to appreciate for what its worth.

Rexamillion on Jun 20, 2009



Fisherr on Jun 20, 2009


I like the song in the trailer? But I also like Hollywood Undead, so I guess I'm bias... The movie's cheesy... so if you like that sort of thing, you'll be okay. It's just the over abundant use of bad CG that throws this off for me. Fuck it, I'm just gonna listen to the music again.

Dan the Fan on Jun 20, 2009


SHIT!!! Absolute SHIT!!! Since when do Joe troops where Iron Man suits? What a bunch of shit... oh and dan link fucks chickens.

Stick it in already on Jun 20, 2009


That looks "Stealth" bad. That's not good. I'd rather see "Robot Chicken"-style stop motion animated G.I. Joe action figures for an hour and a half. I'm actually serious about that!

Jason on Jun 20, 2009


I'm looking forward to seeing it, I grew up with the GI Joe, Trying to make an exact copy of the 80s cartoon in live action wouldn't work. GI Joe was always about the over the top action sequences across different terrain and such. It will be a fun popcorn movie.

TigerClaw on Jun 20, 2009


I grew up with the 12" GI Joes with facial hair and kung fu grip. I didn't see any of those in the trailer, so I ain't wasting my time.

Fritz Blaze on Jun 20, 2009


it looks decent now before it looked ok, maybe I'll see it on DVD

The Kid on Jun 20, 2009


Accelerator Suits are the worst possible thing they could have done. A bunch of dudes in black armor is stupid, but I guess it sure made all that lousy CGI cheap eh? Nothing in this movie anybody will enjoy. Don't anybody watch this crap.

Mark on Jun 20, 2009


I'll rent but only for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I wonder if the crew who watch everything behind the camera are snickering everytime they see the actors attempt to save this failure? Like Sommers saying "That was a great take everyone!" and the gaffer trying desperately to contain himself and not laugh in his face.

Xerxex on Jun 20, 2009


Sorry Alex, but this time i think you're just being a whiny lil bitch. The more you bash the film, the more ppl will go see it.

TheOnlyAdultHere on Jun 20, 2009


I mean I love my FX driven popcorn flix but holy shit this is just so incredibly bad. Many have said it already but again MARLON WAYANS SERIOUSLY!>!??!?!

Cody on Jun 21, 2009



M on Jun 21, 2009


@ 81 So your solution for the glut of bad sequels and reboots is to throw money at this? Why, so we have a chance at getting a He-Man movie where he rides a robotic tiger for no apparent reason or a Transformers movie that's basically a big budget commercial for GM directed by the Armageddon guy. Wait a minute... Shit

T Robert T on Jun 21, 2009


Wait i can ? haha ..interesting .

led panel on Jun 21, 2009


LOL #95 I'll try it but definitely at the dollar movie.

Bry from Chi on Jun 21, 2009


I just *loved* the classic "choo-choo train" whistle effect (mis)used for the all-new Parisian electric tramway scene... BTW, I wonder until when are we going to hear sound effects when a computer is used on-screen (we're in 2009, what the heck) and - even more so - for outer space scenes (40 years after we landed on the moon)? I would personally like to slap Michael Bay for the space shuttle sounds used in Armageddon.

Alex C. on Jun 21, 2009


Is it just me or are they just ripping off lines from Star Wars?

Armand on Jun 21, 2009


I avoid every movie with a Wayans brother like the plague and Dennis Quaid is a hack.

Chris on Jun 21, 2009


#99 perhaps you're right about Quaid. But I have hope for his newest film, Pandorum mainly because I for some reason have hopes for this guy...I really don't know why!

Xerxex on Jun 21, 2009


This reminds me of the Wolverine workprint I watched back in April. The special FX don't even look like they are finished yet. I was excited about a G.I. Joe movie when I first heard about it. But then I saw the first footage, and decided I'll pass.

BigMack on Jun 21, 2009


Looks incredibly awesome, but the special and visual effects are to damn exaggerated!

Robbie on Jun 21, 2009


I find it funny how a lot of people are on the suits. A couple people I know dis on the suits and they love the Halo games... Whoa, wait, that's what Master Chief is. A guy in a suit. I wonder how many of these people like Halo. >.<

Dyi on Jun 21, 2009


#105 You're in an idiot. Simply put. Obviously learn to actually read and then make a comment.

w00t!!! on Jun 21, 2009


If their such an elite unit, why do they look like their buying their suits at Tony Stark's garage sale?

jasonmd2020 on Jun 21, 2009


Well, I still think it looks like crap. 3% chance it's actually any good. I understand giving all the X-Men black suits in those movies, but the suits Joes wear are actual military outfits. Sure a little colorful on the toys, but they weren't all the same. Everyone looks like Snake Eyes and it just takes away from his coolness. Which, I'm sure I'm right, most Joe fans were Snake Eyes fans. We still haven't seen Cobra Commander or Zartan in the trailers, so there might be a glimmer of hope. Plus, I'm sure most people were ripping Transformers apart when it first came out. (What!?!, Bumblebee isn't a VW beetle! Blasphemy!) It'll be very hard for me to forget that Marlon Wayans is in this (and it looks like he's the comedic relief) and the stupid Accellerator Suits. (Once again, they don't need those to make them cool! Cobra should be the one using suits! Anyone remember the toys for God's sake?) Watch GI Joe: Resolute if you want a good taste of GI Joe. Maybe the reboot in the next few years will take source material from there....

TNo on Jun 21, 2009


Very irritating characters... Not sure I could stand two hours!

Tony on Jun 22, 2009


This movie can fuck off.

Colin on Jun 22, 2009


I doesnt look any more stupid than transformers or the Matrix did, I'll watch this on demand..

Lando on Jun 22, 2009


in a word: NO.

Lando's Brother on Jun 22, 2009


I am a true GiJoe superfan and I must admit it looks like crap. What's with the black leather suits? Every new hero has those. Haven't we had enough with batman and xmen? The Gijoe look is part of their character and charisma... This has shit written all over it, even worse than Transformers and the new Star Wars...ok maybe not as bad as the new star wars...

Dan on Jun 22, 2009


Where's Destro, Cobra Commander, Surpentor (And this I command!)? I hope that its good enough to make a sequel.

JussHaten on Jun 22, 2009


GO JOE!!! i will go see it in memorium of the cash my parents spent on GI JOE toys growing up. Plus... Scarlet, Lady J, and of course the COBRA chick are pretty much my first crushes.

capo689 on Jun 22, 2009


What is wrong with everybody?!!! THIS LOOKS LIKE A LOT OF FUN!!! It's definitely going to be much, MUCH better than that really bad "Star Trek" movie! And BTW... Excellerator Suits = EPIC COOL!!! I'm in!!!

Editboy on Jun 22, 2009



HostleNCombat on Jun 22, 2009


Nope. Rental, if that.

Brian on Jun 22, 2009


Ill get it on bootleg...there is no point in paying full price for this....BullS***!

Wahoo guy on Jun 22, 2009


come on guys its got snake-eyes in it so its gonna rock, and theres no way its gonna be worse then the 3rd starship troopers so thats a good sign

Chronicom on Jun 23, 2009


Yeah, doesn't look too good. Rental tops

Ajax on Jun 23, 2009


It looks about as good as Indy 4...and that was the worst movie ive ever seen with the worse use of CGI in history!

vegasdanny on Jun 23, 2009


I just wanna see Snakeyes and Stormshadow go at it. Ninjas rule!

BadKarma5g on Jun 23, 2009


well after two trailers and tons of promo scenes i know what i will see this flick for for sure Scarlett and Snake Eyes those two are the best part of the film so far yeah it sure does seem to have cheesy action scenes, cgi effects and lines, it sure could have been done properly but those two afore mentioned aces will stilll make me wanna see this ๐Ÿ˜€ they are the only characters i loved in the series too and i realy dont care if the rest of the movie suck just deliver me some decent SEyes and scarlett cheers

burak "Daequitas" on Jun 23, 2009


This one was for the kids....

Mr j Money on Jun 23, 2009


Movie looks watchable. Doubt the storyline will be as cool as GI JOE:Resolute. Now that's how I'd love to remember the real american heroes.

Cadet One on Jun 24, 2009


looks too much like a sat morning toon to me

Six Three on Jun 25, 2009


looks like horse shit.

teh staton on Jun 25, 2009


they should stop making trailers each one makes me want to see it less and this was just complete horse shit at least i still have potter : P

neonblue120 on Jun 26, 2009


No Cobra Commander. No Destro. This movies is going to suck

Shaun on Jun 26, 2009


I will see it, I am too much of a geek for 80s stuff. But the only thing I am looking forward to are the Snake Eyes /Stormshadow kung-fu showdowns. Thats it.

me on Jun 26, 2009


Whatever you all still lots of people would like to go to see movie in theater. Still looks good worth every penny

Nane on Jun 27, 2009


Wow unfortunately they put a waynes brother in it, accelerator suit? thats there idea? i don't remember playing with that, you might as well give them jet packs and flame throwers cheesy one liner. Heck lets make them able to transform into auto mobiles and fight other mobiles. The only thing that i felt sort of looked G.I. Joeish was Cobra but not really. I wonder if this will be as bad as the first street fighter movie(90's), Batman and Robin or a new catagory of aweful. I am sorry to those people that say it will be entertaining but If they want to put the G.I. Joe name on the movie please keep it realistic.

Chris Crawford on Jun 27, 2009


I've seen the GI Joe trailer--twice. The first time was about a week ago and then again tonight at my first Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, viewing. I've seen a couple GI Joe the movie promos online as well. You are right: GI Joe is _not_ Transfomers. I watched quite a bit of GI Joe over the years-- the more recent (last 90's/early aughts), and older (late 80's/eraly 90's) and the original old-time cartoon GI Joe (early 70's; probably reruns from the later 60's as well) by the happenstance that I grew up with a brother and a father who liked cartoons. Then married i had tow kids--boys and I made it a point to sit dwon for a part of every time they watched television because they didn't watch a lot--and I like cartoons, too. My youngest son, age almost-17, remarked tonight after seeing the trailer for GI Joe,"That's not anything like the GI Joe I remember." I did not recognize it as a GI Joe movie until it was really obvious upon first viewing--I was just thinking "what a cheesy movie--wonder what it is..." On tonight's second viewing of the GI Joe trailer of theatrical release, I thought "cheesy" and, "they are trying too hard with too little pay-off." It's hard to bring a television doll/action figure or toy to life on the big screen. It doesn't work more often than it does.

A. The Step Up dance movie guy plays Duke (Whom I've never heard speak without the Eminem blaccent) so that's an immediate turn off. B. They took away all the characters identities by giving them the all black uniforms. C. When the hell did G.I. Joes ever have accellerator suits? D. Ripcord was a white guy now played by Wayans. I don't recall Ripcord being all that funny to begin with. E. At least one shot of the Cobra army would have made me want to make sure and see this, Cobra Commander's silver mask or Destro's silver head. F. Transformers at least stayed semi-true to the look and sound of the originals although the Sam and Michayla love storyline I could do without.

You're talking about movies about toys and then cartoons made about toys. This is a piece of shit just like the Transformers pieces of shit. Really bad, over the top CGI with lame jokes, no plot, and characters you don't give a rat's ass about. Of course this is a judgement before seeing the film. It's the equivalent of deciding not to like the taste of shit before I've tasted it. No matter what, I know it's a piece of shit. I guess the fans and the curious like the taste of shit, especially when it costs $. Enjoy your fecal treat a-holes!

Team America World Police comes to mind....why did they pick Paris?

Man, everybody destroys Eiffel Tower. What about the Leaning Tower of Pisa next time, film makers? It sure looks easy to knock it over.

It's the "comedic, cheesy scenes" that define G.I. Joe. The issue with this movie will be, if anything, that it takes itself too seriously.

Mortimer Rictusgrin on Jul 1, 2009


Where's Corbra Commander in these previews?

Aaron on Jul 1, 2009


It's funny that I read people saying "looks lame, bet it will have a poor script and wooden acting". Well that hasn't stopped Trans 2 has it. Clearly just as long as you have kick arse visuals and some cool shit blowing up, nobody cares about the story or acting.

Payne by name on Jul 2, 2009


yeah idk this looks ok but then again so did dragonball evolution untill they released everything......but if anyone saw the trailer that was with Transformers 2 and agrees with me in the beginning that the underwater place looked like rapture from Bioshock and got you all excited for the Bioshock movie then made you extremely dissapointed I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

AX on Jul 5, 2009


111- I don't know how you can put the Matrix and transformers in the same sentence... tisk tisk All of the trailers i have seen for this movie make it look like utter crap. I have no interest in seeing it even as GI fan. the cast sucks (minus Rachel Nichols and Joseph Gordon Levitt), the CGI sucks, it sounds like the script was written by an imaginative 12 year old boy, and yet people still want to see this? I don't get it... people who want to see this movie are the reason hollywood sucks now and will continue to suck. I honestly hope this movie flops terribly like Water World so studios will stop backing crap movies like this and directors will learn to make an honest action movie.

comonsens on Jul 6, 2009


I sorry but everytime I see those suits all's I can think about is "Halo"!

corey on Jul 8, 2009


looks friggan great fun - i jumped thru the train haha!

ed on Jul 8, 2009


I think this has the potential to outsuck Transformers

chicagofandom on Jul 9, 2009


Can someone please tell be me why this movie looks so allegedly "terrible"??? It doesn't look bad at all!

Daniel on Jul 10, 2009


yeah when i think gi joe i think halo the movie

JACK on Jul 11, 2009


See the difference is you couldn't really tell from the the trailers to Transformers 2 that it was gonna suck like it did. As for Transformers 1....that didn't suck. It was a satisfying rendition of the spirit of the 80's cartoons for a child of those times and a child of today. This movie is pretty much just giving a big middle finger to all that. It's basically saying "we're keeping the names but changing everything else but a lot of you will pay anyway so we don't care. Yes, we're raping your childhood." From the get go it's saying that. And one can tell in the trailers. Maybe everyone can't quite explain it but you can tell from watching the trailers. Does it look bad as a summer popcorn VFX movie? Not any more or any less from those standards. But it could be called "Super Mech Soldiers Extraordinaire" as much as it could have the name of GI Joe. for all the Joe related material they seemed to have in it. At least Transformers had the fallback of there having been like 10 different new cartoons diluting the "canon" of the storylines. GI Joe has no such problem. I wouldn't be surprised if this just happened to be an action script lying around and some producer slapped the GI Joe name on it to sell it like they did with the last Die Hard movie.

Proteusxz on Jul 12, 2009


It's not just because Alex didn't like it, it's because it seems like a trailer aimed more at a 5-12 year old. Now, if Chris Nolan can work out that you hit the 5-12 year old fan when they're older and make a great movie, why can't they? It's like Doom... if you are completely ignoring the fan boys... why the hell are you making the movie? money? well you just lost half of it immediately. Sadly, I have come to agree with everyone that has said in the past that subtitled movie names lead to the worst movies. E.g. AVP: Requiem, Terminator: Salvation, The Crow: City of Angels. If the producers don't have enough confidence in the movie to give it a balls-out name then why should we have any faith in it? I can not believe that they internationalised it. America tends to hold the monopoly on all action heroes, alien invasions, national disasters etc and now... the one time where it was 100% appropriate and could have improved the current world view of America... they don't. I'm AUSTRALIAN and I think it should be All American Hero!!! I don't mind them toying with the format a bit, as I was very impressed with the first Transformers film, but those 'Accelerator Suits' make me throw up a bit in my mouth. Eccelston was a great choice for Destro, but .... Tommy from Third Rock from the Sun as ..... Cobra Commander .. wow.. intimidating. This honestly looks like another Dragonball. If you 'completely' ignore fanboys... you end up broke. Why do you think we became fanboys? I own the loungeroom-sized USS Flag aircraft carrier. You can imagine my dissappointment at this movie ๐Ÿ™ Fail

D_FINCH on Jul 12, 2009


The Stormshadow vs. Snake Eyes looked good to me... Also i'm going into this with the same expectations as X-Men 3, so as long as i'm entertained by the Action Movie, i'm not too worried about it staying true to Story Line. Its a Wait and See mentality for me, and i'll make my decision of how "crap" this movie is, not by trailer, but by the actual movie

Mykael on Jul 13, 2009


Just when I thought Transformers 2 had shittiest movie of the year locked down.. This piece of monkey crap might be a contender

Montgomery Burns on Jul 13, 2009


Fuck all of you haters, i thought the old GI Joe shit was terrible now they got this new amzing movie coming out to set the standards for a New Era of GI Joe, and Era that the 21st centuery can relate to you old grumpy Fucks!!!

Fester192 on Jul 13, 2009


Are you guys sure that isn't supposed to be Doctor Mindbender (the mad scientist who created Serpentor)? I don't know why they would be refering to Cobra Commander as "the Doctor." Although that does make about as much sense as Storm Shadow in a trench coat instead of a karate gi. So who knows. That movie is gonna suck hardcore. I am a huge GI Joe fan and there is no way I'm shelling out 10 bucks to see this atrocity in theaters.

best baby monitor on Jul 14, 2009


Star Trek is the BEST movie this year. Its a 1st class film. Both plot and action wise. A very epic movie indeed. G.I Joe, Transformers, and Wolverine cant even compare to Star Trek. So if You guys plan on seeing this film, just watch Star Trek again while its still on the big screen.

MJ on Jul 14, 2009


alex, u were so exicted for transformers 2, terminator, x men but ur not exited for this because u say its a big dumb action film. WHAT THE HELL DO U THINK TRANSFORMERS WAS. and im sure this isnt gonna be 2 and a half hours like transformers was. u make absolutely no sense. and whenever you say a movie looks great (which is almost all the time) every1 agrees with u. but when u say a movie looks bad, everybody trashes it.

fu on Jul 17, 2009


Yeah, who was responsible for casting? Marlon Wayans and that wigger from that step up movie, then just other random face that kinda seem familiar...Besides Quaid. Seriously, they threw darts at a wall blindfolded. I'll catch it on HBO or Starz a year from now.

Nick_W on Jul 18, 2009


hey 22 your an idiot watch the original movie the script is written chessey as hell but the story is awesome and it could more awesome if they followed that but alast no cigar......

john vanderslice on Jul 19, 2009


its abviously aimed at fat kids who like the toy. and explosions.

george on Jul 21, 2009


Maybe if the critics don't completely hate it I'll see it. . .plus I heard Brendan Fraser has a cameo, and I'm a huge fan of his.

Chelsea on Jul 22, 2009


i will still see it though...just to see how crap it is...I mean it is from Stephen Sommers..the dude has some cool movies under his belt so i guess it ain't too bad. Hope it won't end up like Terminator Salvation...what a waste of time that one was.

alison on Jul 23, 2009


I still can't get passed those Mega Man suits
