Storyline

Time and time again, Cobra has been on the threshhold of global domination, only to be thwarted by the Joes. Now the ruthless terrorist organization has a new ally, the Cobra-La race, led by Golobulus. Golobulus wants to steal the Joes' "Broadcast Energy Transmitter" in order to ripen space spores and mutate the people of Earth. When Duke is injured and the rest of the force immobilized, it's up to the new "rawhides" and Slaughter's Marauders to pick up the slack and save the world.

Trivia

Burgess Meredith (Golobulus) is best known for playing Rocky Balboa's trainer Micky in the "Rocky" film series. Hasbro had intended to release a Rocky Balboa figure (as the GIJoe trainer) in 1987 (the year this film was released) but the deal fell through. (The figure was given a different head and released as Big Boa, the Cobra trainer, the same year instead.). Meredith also starred in "The Last Chase (1981) with Lee Majors, who voiced General Hollingsworth (aka Hawk) in G.I.Joe Retaliation. See more »

Goofs

Duke's chest injury alternates briefly when Falcon comes to his side. Serpentor's snake javelin clearly hit him in the left half of his chest, approximately where his heart would be, and his blood can be seen soaking his bandages. In one shot, the blood stain is on the right half of his chest, but in the next shot is back on the left. See more »

Great movie
30 May 2001 | by (Reuver, Holland) – See all my reviews

I saw this film last night for the first time in ten years and I must say I still knew most of the dialogue! I saw it about a 1000 times when I was 10 years old. This film didn't loose the 'magic' when I reviewed it last night (other shows and films from my youth like Airwolf, A-Team and the Thunderbirds did loose their 'magic').

G.I. Joe The Movie is still a great, entertaining and fun cartoon. It's all about the origin of Cobra (G.I. Joe's nemisis). An ancient tribe of mutants (the ancestors of Cobra) want to take over the world and it's up the the Joe's to avoid this.

Despite its many flaws (some plotholes, continuity-goofs, etc.), it's still a great time watching it. This is certainly a film that defined my youth.

A 9 out of 10.
