Trivia

The film is influenced by G.I. Joe: Renegades (2010), where Cobra turns the authorities against the Joes, making the Joes into hunted fugitives. See more »

Goofs

A stop sign at the prison reads "Hält" while it should just read "Stop" (even just "Halt" is rarely used on signs in Germany). The German word "hält" has different meanings, i.e. "he holds something", but it does not mean an order to stop your car. See more »

Why the bad reviews?
28 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I'll start off by saying that I really enjoyed this movie. At times it made me laugh, at times it gave me frights, there were many times when it set my pulse racing. It's an action movie, its supposed to. Not once did it make me think of how flawed western civilization really is, or put tears in my eyes, or make me appreciate living in a 21st century, western country, with plenty to eat, drink etc. Its an action movie, it's NOT supposed to.

And thats where I find some of these reviews annoying. If you go to the cinema to see a movie called GI Joe: Retaliation, which is an action movie, you should only rate it accordingly. This movie easily fulfills all the criteria for a good action film, so if you want to go see an action movie, then yes, go see this. The acting isn't bad, the plot is fairly good and the visuals are incredible. But if you want to see a realistic film, one that will make you smile, sob, or think about life, do not go see this film. What this film is, is 2 hours entertainment. It will have you glued to the screen for that 2 hours (especially if you see it in 3D). I would recommend GI Joe: Retaliation to anyone from about the age of ten up, as long as you walk into the cinema or press play expecting to see a good action movie. If you do this, you will be thoroughly entertained for 2 hours. Enjoy!
