G.I. Joe International

Apr. 30, 2009by:

"Allocine" recently posted a new international trailer for the upcoming actioner G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA and holy hell, has Stephen Sommers outdone himself with this one. The kind of explosive, unabashed, batshit action on display here is usually only reserved for action transcendents whose last name is Bay. If this isn't your cup'o'tea then just move along, sweet cakes. But if it is, holy fucking shit, are you in for a treat. The ridiculously crazy action starts August 7th.

Extra Tidbit: What the hell is that green shit?!

Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow is cool. The rest of it looked pretty crappy. This is going to be a movie with some horrible dialog. Hopefully they don't do the ridiculous "Herky-Jerky Camera thing" through the whole Ninja Battle!

For the very first time since I've heard about this movie being a reality, I've had more interest than merely liking the director, worshipping Dennis Quaid and liking many of the other cast. After seeing that preview, I pursed my lips, and started nodding my head slowly, and said, "Cool!"

Finally, yes, I'm looking forward to something related to G.I. JOE. In this case, one f*ck of a crazy action movie!

Red4, please do digress from explaining how "TF2" is more than a popcorn movie. This looks like complete and utter shit. I'm not above an over the top action flick but this is a fucking cartoon. Total pass for me.

whatever...

CG looks amateur. Cast is weak. I hate "popcorn" movies, and fuck you if that's where you put Transformers, but I sure as fuck do not put Transformers in the "popcorn movie" category; it's more profound than that. I digress from explaining myself.

Cheers.

This looks terrible.

Channing Tatum's cheesey soft delivery of "I want in" pretty much set the tone for that trailer. That uber green shit and utter cheesiness? Ugh.. no.

Looks really lame

I'd only sneak in just to see the Storm Shadow vs. Snake Eyes fight, though I'm sure Stephen Sommers will quickly edit, cut, and paste it to disastrous porporations where there won't be a damn fight at all.

This looks ridiculously fun. But this is also more like G.I. Joe's Sigma Six series. One thing, accelerator suits??

That was fucking dumb. It looks like Spy Kids with adults. And its extremely obvious that theyre banking off of Transformers style; dodging missiles and such...

If the accelerator suits showed up in an episode of the cartoon, no one would be bitching...the cartoon had anrdoids, ghosts, and DNA monsters, etc...and people are now bitching that the Joes have suits to enhance them?

I don't see the big deal with it and I think it really sticks to the theme of the GI JOE brand.

The Joes and Cobras always had some gag they would come up with. In the movie, the gag is the accelerator suits.

But that jump at the end to dodge Baroness' missiles looks

But that jump at the end to dodge Baroness' missiles looks like when Ironhide dodges missiles at the end of Transformers.

I guess Hasbro products all dodge missiles the same. Lol.

It just looks like fun.

Besides, I still watch Deep Rising every-now-and-then. That's a cool movie. And this will be too.

Looks like it could be a lot of fun.....BUT, it also looks like it could go the other way too as in completely stupid.

I will probably check it out hoping for a good popcorn flick.

cant wait

ya i realize there's a lot snobbery going around, seems like ever since Batman begins,the dark knight, and iron man, nothing is allowed to be cheesy mindless fun. Don't get me wrong,i love those films, but i also think sommors is one of the last true B-movie greats, he just knows how to give you a fun movie even if it doesnt really make sense and is loaded with bad cgi. Cmon remember how much fun the first two mummy movies were? and van helsing was not that bad (didn't even come close to the

Cmon remember how much fun the first two mummy movies were? and van helsing was not that bad (didn't even come close to the silliness that was the LXG) so why not, anyway i think fan boys crying about there childhood being raped (i know they havent yet but you can almost hear it in the distance) with this movie is one movie to many. anyway like i said this looks like good old fashioned B movie mindless fun. and in an era were everything and everyone is taking themselves just a bit to seriously this will probably be a nice change of pace.

Looks like mindless fun, I'm sure I'll see it. The funniest part of this trailer:

"The French are upset" followed by "We've never faced this kind of threat". LOL. Beware the power of France!

Still, I'm there.

Those suits look kinda dumb to me, but Sommers usually makes movies that might not be the best but they are fun.

This will most likely be my guilty pleasure of the summer. I'm still excited to see Joseph-Gordon Levitt as cobra commander, hopefully they can keep it under-wraps until the movie comes out.

Nope...

You've got to be kidding me. This is what passes as entertainment?! "Accelerator" suits?! Why not just say "Lame excuse to use CGI Robot" suits. People will buy anything these days.

I never paid attention to the stories of GI Joe in the past but were they this gadget-friendly. When I pictured GI Joe I always kinda envisioned something along the lines of the army guys in the Transformers movie, military special ops guys fighting technology thats beyond them.

It looks like a fun action packed movie, but I feel like you could have used an original set of characters, and "accelerator suits" opens a can of worms that Sommers would not be able to handle.

looks like fun

I think that this movie is strangely getting a lot of hate for some odd reason. I know..I hate the mummy movies but this looks like cheesy fun.
