When Snake Eyes is taken into the prison, he's told that they descend so far that they are no longer in Germany, but are in international territory. Most conventions hold that a country's claim extends down to the center of the Earth, and up into space. (US Property Law holds the same convention with regard to a persons real property) See more »

not great, but fun and good at what it wants to be
This is a rock-'em, sock-'em romp. Don't go looking for much beyond that, and you'll have a good time. The plot is enough to keep things moving along, and the interaction between the characters, while somewhat stilted and greatly contrived, is a good match for how it was back in the days of the TV cartoon. Fans of that should feel at home here; I was one, back in the day, so I'm not just guessing.
The first GI Joe movie had a few more light-hearted goofball moments; this one is a little gloomier and grittier, but still mostly within the parameters of GI Joe. What is different here is there's a substantial body count. The deaths are fairly clinical; it's not a gory movie, but still, very young kids might be affected by them. I don't recall much of a body count in the first one, but it's been a while so forgive me if my recall is failing me there.
I give this a 7 for those who are looking for an action movie. If you don't like them, you won't like this, so just skip it. If you're up for explosions, fights, and lots of tough stares and macho one-liners, with a little humor too, this is your movie. Also worth seeing for the epic cliff rope battle! LOL.
