G.I. Joe: Initiate Rocks!!
10 October 2012 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This first installment of the fan-made series wastes no time jumping into the action, covering a lot of story in a short amount of time. This series is by far one of the most realistic, authentic fan made films I've seen on the web. Using real veterans and real military equipment and tactical know how, adds to the authenticity, and the use of some of the more obscure Joes does a lot to add to the ever expanding Mythos of G.I. Joe:) I am particularly excited to see more in the near future, I am in favor of the independent take of this saga, and more attention being paid to characters, dialog, and story twists rather than hokey youtube vids I've seen who try to have CGI and similar SFX. This series is a great way to get your Joe fix in anticipation for the long delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
