Gary Collinson reviews G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #1....
"A Snake In Their Midst! Her name is Chameleon — and she used to be a Cobra agent. Now she’s made her way into the G.I. Joe team—the honest way. But even with the best of intentions, does she have what it takes to fight on the side of the angels? Flint thinks she does, and he’s willing to gamble the lives of this teammates on her… Unfortunately, with the Crimson Twin called Tomax pulling the strings, no bet is a sure thing."
We're already two issues in to both Fred Van Lente's G.I. Joe and Chuck Dixon's G.I. Joe: Special Missions, and now Idw completes its relaunch of the Joe line this week with the arrival of third and final new series, G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files. Much like Special Missions, The »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been in UK cinemas for a little over week now and I’m only just getting round to my review. Why? Well I wanted to see the film a few times before putting anything down on (virtual) paper, as I wanted to make sure my first instincts were right. And they were… I’m disappointed.
I was expecting great things from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and maybe that’s the problem. As a huge fan of the original movie (I can safely say that amongst the movie bloggers I read and am acquainted with I am seriously in the minority when I say that) I was looking forward to what looked to be, »

The actress revealed to Flicks and Bits that women can relate to Lady Jaye because she is both "sassy" and "vulnerable".
"For me, the great thing about Lady Jaye in this movie is that she's somebody that girls can look up to," Palicki explained. "It's such a well-rounded part, because she gets to be funny, she gets to be sassy, she gets to be the intelligence of the group, she's a sharpshooter, and she also gets to be feminine, she gets to be vulnerable."
Palicki went on to say: "It was a great opportunity as an actor to play these different facets. She does have a bit of a chip on her shoulder, she is in this group of guys.
"She has a bit of sass to her and a strength in having to constantly prove herself. »

Let's go Joe! Feeling more like reboot than a sequel, G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock who takes command of the Real American Heroes after a set-up leaves many soldiers dead and the remaining on the run from their own country. Returning from the first film: Channing Tatum as Duke, masked butt-kicker Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Jonathan Pryce as the president. Newcomers Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye and D.J. Cotrona as Flint just follow orders. As a movie, Retaliation is popcorn fun, ditching Rise of the Cobra's misplaced serious tone for a more straightforward sense of honor and duty. Of course Roadblock gets a chance to return to his old stomping ground to get back to the basics! Why »
New GI Joe 2,Retaliation movie sequel in the works,so GI Joe 3 is on the way. According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, the recent "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" flick did very well at the box office this weekend with $132 million dollars in ticket sales over the opening weekend! So, as we know,money talks,and Paramount Pictures definitely wants to move ahead with another sequel,so you guys can get ready to see a G.I. Joe 3 movie in the future. Andrew Stewart over at Variety tweeted, "Yo Joe! After a $132 mil opening for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Paramount said it will move forward with a third Joe." I actually saw the movie,myself, and I thought it was really good. I personally liked the first installment better,but this one was still no slouch by any means. It also served up plenty of eye candy with the »
With G.I. Joe: Retaliation tracking an impressive $100 million + opening at the global box office this weekend, there's a good chance we'll be seeing further big-screen adventures for the Real American Heroes, but could that involve a crossover with Paramount Pictures' other big Hasbro property Transformers? According to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura it's unlikely at this point in time, but he's not going as far as ruling it out entirely:
"I guess it's possible. At this moment I [would] resist it," di Bonaventura told CinemaBlend. "I don't know necessarily why, but I just think there's so much that's so rich in the mythologies that I don't think they need to draw from the other. I don't rule it out. It's not to say you couldn't do it well, but both these properties have such rich mythologies with so many characters, that you could [make] a lot of movies before you start running »

New GI Joe 2,Retaliation movie delivered great action,stunts,& more. Paramount Pictures released their new action flick, "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was highly entertaining,serving up a ton of action and stunts that just never stopped. The movie stars: D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis, and Dwayne Johnson. In the new flick, the evil Zartan ,disguised himself as the President of the United States to help bring the Cobra destruction plan into fruition. His first orders were to use the Presidential power to order and attack on the G.I. Joe team,exterminating them all,so they couldn't come back and stop the Cobra plan from being carried out,later on. The attack on the Joes was successful but not complete as three of the Joes: Road Block,Lady Jaye, »
Dwayne Johnson's introduction to the Fast & Furious films acted like a shot in the arm to the flagging car franchise, so producers of GI Joe: Retaliation were likely looking to pull the same trick twice by bringing him into their sequel. On this point there's good news and bad news. The good? This is a better film than its dire 2009 predecessor The Rise of Cobra. The bad? Retaliation is still a preposterous and messy 3D spectacle devoid of any kind of soul.
This time around there's no Sienna Miller, Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Dennis Quaid, instead there's a fresh Joes team that includes Roadblock (Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki), Flint (DJ Cotrona) and founding member Joe Colton (Bruce Willis). Channing Tatum returns as Duke, but »

Before you see "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" in theaters this weekend, there's a little something you should know about the beloved 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon. Sure, it's about an elite force of American soldiers taking on the evil terrorism of Cobra. But for the most part, the show was next level crazy. The only show that could potentially out-crazy "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" is "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," and that series isn't even set on Earth.
For a show ostensibly about real American heroes, "G.I. Joe" brought the bonkers. Narrowing the series' craziest episodes down was a hard task (almost as hard as the genetic pillaging Cobra undertook to create their master, Serpentor). Here are the five craziest episodes of "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero."

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is out in theaters this week after a bit of a delay, presumably to improve the movie, but after seeing it, I wonder how bad it was before. Filled with tanks, explosions, buff bodies, and 3D (the newest must-have accessory for action flicks), the sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has all the elements of a great action movie. Unfortunately, it's a barrage of unintentionally hilarious dialogue from stars Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki, unbelievable gadgetry, and plot holes. Thankfully, there is some standout action, and yes, Channing Tatum appears, but it's not enough to constitute a trip to the theater. Here are my reasons for why you can skip this sequel. There's not enough Tatum. Don't be fooled by the trailer or the pictures, Duke (Tatum) is only on screen for about 20 minutes. Maybe it's because we know the film was held for »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation, 2013.
Directed by Jon M. Chu.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Lee Byung-hun, D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Elodie Yung, RZA, Joseph Mazzello, Arnold Vosloo, Walton Goggins and Channing Tatum.
When Cobra takes control of the Us government and orders G.I. Joe destroyed, a small team of Joes led by Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) seek help from the original Joe, General Joseph Colton (Bruce Willis), and hatch a plan to win back the White House and defeat the evil terrorist organisation.
I was mildly entertained by the Joes' first big screen outing in 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. I wouldn't go as far as to say I enjoyed the film, but I enjoyed it as much as possible, considering that Stephen Sommers' name was on the credits. Sure I thought it had its faults, plenty of them, but in »

Lady Jaye is the only female member of the G.I. Joe squad, but as an expert marksman who also handles intelligence, she is more than capable of holding her own alongside her male colleagues. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura knew it would be a challenge to find an actress who could embody both the beauty and muscle of this character, and it was Red Dawn and Wonder Woman star Adrianne Palicki who quickly came to mind. "We needed a strong woman who could hold her own and Adrianne is whip smart, beautiful and extremely physically competent, which helps audiences really experience her as one of the G.I. Joe team members," he says. "She has a bit of sass to her and a strength in having to constantly prove herself," Palicki adds when asked what appealed to her most about the character. "She’s a gun specialist and the intelligence »
If you’ve come to Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation looking for plot, well, you’ve probably also forgotten what happened the last time we hooked up with America’s elite military force also named after action figures and comic books. While Chu does an admirable enough job cleaning up the mess left behind after 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the latest entry into the saga of the Joes and all their nifty little gadgets doesn’t manage to amount to more than a pile of fun jokes and one show-stopper of an action sequence. This time around, the Joe gang is unexpectedly abandoned and destroyed by the U.S. government, thanks to a president who insists that the Joes (mainly Snake Eyes) are responsible for the assassination of the Pakistani president, which has thrown the country into utter turmoil. What’s left of the team (and, man »

Director: Jon M. Chu Writers: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick Starring: Lee Byung-hun, D.J. Cotrona, Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum, Arnold Vosloo, Bruce Willis, Elodie Yung Some films challenge us to ponder important social issues, question various belief systems, and/or motivate us into looking deeper at the fundamental concepts of understanding human nature...and some films are based on Hasbro toys from the 1980s. I'm not a person that believes in "guilty pleasures" when it comes to movies. Call me crazy, but I like to be entertained by entertainment, and that's why I loved 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra...and that's why I was super stoked to watch Retaliation. I'm not sure if rehashing the plot really matters for a G.I. Joe movie review but I'll give it to you real quick anyway: (Please skip the next paragraph if »

The Joes are back.
After the Pakastani President is assassinated, insurgents seize the country’s nuclear arsenal and the Joes are sent in to retrieve the codes. After Duke, Roadblock and the Joes are ambushed by Cobra forces, retaliation is set in motion. In director Jon M. Chu’s 3D sequel to the 2009 movie, the team has to take on the Cobra enemy forces and expose an imposter in the oval office.
While the Cobra Commander is set on becoming ruler over all the Earth while causing global destruction through with his “Zeus” weapon, G.I. Joe: Retaliation also focuses on the relationship between Snake Eyes and his arch-enemy Storm Shadow, who was presumed dead at the end of Rise Of Cobra. When we first meet Snake Eyes (Ray Park) again, he is on a search for peace within himself after retreating to the Arashikage to train with the Blind Master (RZA). Once there, »
