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 name "Cobra-La" was not intended to be in the movie. The writers planned to replace it when they came up with a better name, but Hasbro loved the name. 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 »

Like GI Joe?? Gotta see this movie!!!
19 June 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

If you loved the 1980s TV show you will love this movie. G.I. Joe the movie is not mearly as good as the TV show, but rather is much much better. This movie comprises of the same guys we love (or love to hate), such as Duke, Sgt. Slaughter, Cobra Commander, Serpentor etc etc. However, it is the new characters that really bring life and intrigue into this movie (ie. jinx, lt. falcon, nemesis enforcer, golobulus etc etc).

My favorite scene of this movie was the opening scene where pythona infiltrates the inpenetrable terradrome. I also loved the slaughterhouse training, and the many changes that occur within Cobra Commander. Then again, as a child I watched this movie all the time so I may be just a tad bit biased.
