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 Written by Michael Silva <silvamd@cleo.bc.edu>

Trivia

The film's opening sequence with the G.I. Joe soldiers saving the Statue of Liberty from the Cobra invaders was originally intended to be the climax in the earlier drafts. 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 »

Yo Joe!
28 April 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

G.I. Joe: The Movie is a good theater version of the hit TV show. The opening to this movie is a fantastic firefight between Cobra and G.I. Joe on the statue of liberty. The remixed version of their opening song is played triumphantly when the Joe's fight. This has to be one of the greatest introductions to a movie I have ever seen.

The plot is pretty much the same as the cartoon. Cobra wants to take over the world, so they plan to get a new weapon called the B.E.T. (Broadcast Energy Transmitter) Cobra Commander is finally forced out of Cobra and Serpentor is on a mission to use the BET to release pods to turn the entire world population in primitives.

It features voices of some famous actors: Lt. Falcon (Don Johnson), Golobulus (Burgess Meredith), and Sgt. Slaughter.

Most of this movie is too familiar with the cartoon and doesn't stand out on enough of a level as a big screen movie. Although it does feature some excellent visuals that were not common in most cartoons in the 80s. The cartoon simply is not on the level as Transformers: The Movie, in my honest opinion.

Final word, it's still a solid cartoon movie of an incredible TV series. G.I. Joe in general is more about fighting for one's freedom, against an evil regime hell-bent on conquering the world. Which can be seen in many other films, cartoons and non cartoons alike. I recommend this for hardcore cartoon/G.I. Joe fans. Buy this on VHS or DVD, the DVD contains the old public service announcements that used to play at the end of the shows!
