(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 »

G.I. Joe Retaliation is an strictly average action movie.
The movie has the same repeated story,which we have often seen in many action movies before.
For me,what made G.I Joe Retaliation more disappointing is Bruce Willis.He had hardly any screen-space to showcase his action skills.
G.I Joe Retaliation is a movie made for the teens.The teens are surely going to love this one! There are many action sequences in this movie,but only a few stand out.The action sequence in the Himalayas is the highlight of the movie.This action sequence has been shot very nicely.
The direction is mediocre.
Performance: Dwayne Johnson is fine.Channing Tatum is strictly okay.Elodie Yung,Ray Park and Adrianne Palicki are just okay.Bruce Willis disappoints.
All in all,G.I.Joe Retaliation is a strictly average action movie.I would recommend this flick for the teens but not for adults.I am giving it a four on ten.
