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.

It's good!
1 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

You know, it's actually kind of sad when a cartoon based on a toy that I'm not a fan of ends up being better than the My Little Pony movie which I'm actually a fan of. The weird thing about G. I. Joe was that I don't think I could name a single good guy in this franchise. I could name nearly every bad guy though! Cobra Commander is especially what makes this franchise memorable. I love this guy's silly voice and hamminess. I admit to never having watched the cartoon at all. You don't have to in order to enjoy this movie.

The animation is very impressive. A lot of it is in fact just random fight scene after random fight scene. Still, that can be pretty entertaining. While the film looks nice, the characters are also quite fun. Again, it's mostly the villains but I managed to remember the names of some of the good guys this time around like Duke and Lt. Falcon. I will admit to being annoyed by how Snake Eyes was only in the movie for a few seconds. He's a pretty cool and recognizable character. This film has giant snakes, so it must be good. ***
