The world's eight nuclear nations meet at a summit held at Fort Sumter. The events of the summit vaguely mirror the famous American Civil War battle at Fort Sumter, in which nobody from either side of the conflict suffered any losses (save for one malfunctioning weapon that resulted in the death of a Union soldier) in that even though all eight nations launch their nuclear arsenal, nobody is killed by nuclear weapons in the end.

(at around 24 mins) When the armored truck drives through the entrance of the Einsargen prison, the camera follows the truck and pans over the entrance bunker and fence. At the bunker there is a sign with the text: "Warnung Hochsicherheitssteckdose High Security Area". Instead of "warnung" the word "Achtung" is more commonly used in Germany. Meaning "Attention". And the word "Hochsicherheitssteckdose" would translate "high security wall socket or power outlet". The proper German word would be "Hochsicherheitstrakt" what means "Maximum security prison".

Plenty of great visuals and action but not much story.
This second G.I JOE film doesn't have much in terms of a well thought out plot but it does have some great visuals and is packed with loads of well staged action sequences so action movie buffs should have a blast. For those also seeking more of a character story it's still best to look somewhere else.
The acting is however surprisingly good given the film's plot. Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum both bring a certain likability to their characters and I enjoyed watching them the most and of course Adrianne Palicki who was very friendly on the eyes.
Overall, The film might not have much of a plot but the great visuals and the well made action sequences keep it from becoming a total bore. Those who want more of a character driven plot might not think very much of it.
