Storyline

In this first GI Joe film, the team must contend with COBRA who, after a successful raid for a special broadcast satellite, now threatens the world with a teleportation devise called the MASS devise which can snatch anything seemingly out of existence around the world as well as normal teleportation. GI Joe find the original designer of the device who advises the only way to counter that weapon is to build a MASS device of their own. However to do that, three rare exotic elements are needed to power the device properly. Now the team must race around the world and find those supplies, while battling COBRA who has the same need for them as well. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

The scene in the opening montage of Flash firing his laser rifle at a target is actually taken from the commercial for the "GI JOE #1" comic. See more »

Goofs

Ramar's height fluctuates throughout the entire mini-series. When Duke first confronts Ramar in the Arena of Sport, Ramar towers over him, and looks to be somewhere between 13-14 feet tall (if we are to believe Scarlett's line that Duke is 6'2"). In the second episode, in close quarter combat with Duke, Ramar looks to be a couple of feet taller than Duke, which would place him in the 8-9 foot range. By the fourth episode, Ramar stands next to Selena and is barely taller than she is, which would make him somewhere between 6-7 feet tall. See more »

A Retro Cartoon.
9 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

G.I. Joe was my favourite cartoon of all time. Although the female roles are few and far between I always loved G.I. Joe for more than just that.

I guess Sargent Conrad S "Duke" Hauser was the first fictional character that I ever had a crush on.

I am also a purist when it comes to cartoons like this and that the version of G.I. Joe that DIC came up with can never measure up to the Marvel/Sunbow version of G.I. Joe.
