Henry Jackman replaces Alan Silvestri as the music composer for the film. Jackman would later replaced Silvestri in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). See more »

Goofs

(at around 25 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" (meaning "Attention") is more commonly used in Germany. The word "Hochsicherheitssteckdose" (a compound which does not exist in the German language) would literally translate to "high security wall socket/power outlet". The proper German word would be "Hochsicherheitsgefängnis" which translates to "Maximum security prison". See more »

Plenty of great visuals and action but not much story.
9 September 2013 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

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.
