Did You Know?

Trivia:
When Sgt. Slaughter uses the term "ditty bag" to illustrate Lt. Falcon's pass or fail. DITY is military jargon for a "Do It Yourself" move; when a soldier out-processes from an installation for discharge or another assignment.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: Steeler and Grunt both make appearances in the movie. However, as per "Worlds Without End", they were left behind in the alternate Cobra-controlled universe and thus should not be on the active duty roster.See more »

Like GI Joe?? Gotta see this movie!!!, 19 June 1999
Author: MI$ gUy from Texas

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.
