Trivia

The series writer Warren Ellis had no prior knowledge of G.I. Joe, which he claims is why producer Sam Register brought him on board: "It went like this: Sam Register phoned me up and said 'We'd really like you to write a G.I. JOE animation, at a PG-13 rating, aimed at an older viewer.' I said 'I've never seen a G.I. JOE cartoon in my life. The closest I got to a G.I. JOE comic was drinking with Larry Hama. I've never even seen a G.I. JOE; couldn't tell you what they look like if you paid me. I know nothing about G.I. JOE. It is meaningless in my world.' 'Excellent,' Sam said, 'just the guy we need.' It was hard not to notice, at this point, that Sam Register is crazier than a shithouse rat. Therefore I decided to take the job." See more »

Quotes

Cobra Commander: Good morning. I use the name Cobra Commander, and I am the founder of Cobra, an organization you great and glorious people tend to dismiss as 'criminals'. I have always believed that money brings power. This was an error that has cost me a LOT of pain. It recently occured to me, however, that if I have all the power, then everyone would bring me all the money. I therefore make the following proposition. You have 24 hours to turn control of your nations over to me or begin killing nations until ...

Good, but some serious issues keep this reboot from soaring
12 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A GI JOE fan's dream come true; a mature rated, fast paced action film giving an interesting glimpse into what this type of JOE show might have been. The plot deals with terrorist organization Cobra attempting to take over the world with a superweapon created using satellites. And so it goes. Exciting action scenes and slick dialogue are undermined constantly by lousy voice acting (as the film only has four actors providing all of the voices) and a plot that is totally and utterly ridiculous.

Still, worth a look for JOE fans, others beware. Fans will have added fun identifying the many JOE characters from the assorted TV shows and comics.
