Sadly, G.I. JOE: RETALIATION is my most anticipated movie for March, seeing as it's a month full of "meh."  However, as a child of the '80's who grew up on the 3.75" figures and accompanying comics by Larry Hama, my hope for someone to make a fitting tribute to that era still glimmers.  Stephen Sommer's first entry, G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA was a slap in the face to fans like me, crushing all hope of seeing a worthwhile 'Joe film.  Now, after a nearly year-long delay to upconvert to 3D, John Chu (director of the STEP UP films) has come aboard to potentially deliver the film we deserve.  Of course, that may not be a good thing.

Today, we have a clip of two of the most popular characters in G.I. Joe history, Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow, duking it out in true ninja fashion.  It's not the whole fight, but enough to give you an idea of what we'll get on the big screen.  I wouldn't say it colored me impressed, but it does give me hope that, at the very least, this could be a fun ride that doesn't take a steaming dump on the cheesy goodness that was my 'Joe childhood.

Watch for ninjas:

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, starring Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona, Ray Stevenson, Ray Park, Byung Hun-lee, Channing Tatum, Arnold Vosloo, RZA, Joseph Mazzello, Jonathan Pryce, Walton Goggins, and Elodie Yung gets tough on March 28, 2013 in 3D.

Depending on your collector level, these may be needed for your collection...(click image to see more)

Extra Tidbit: What characters would you like to see if there's another Joe outing after this? Dusty, Shipwreck, Barbecue, Tomax and Xamot...shit, the entire 1985 iine would work just fine for me.

The Cliffhanger clip looked really good. Love the style, the action, the music, the redshirts biting the dust...I think we need to give Jon M Chu a chance, everyone was ready to write him just because he did that Justin Bieber movie, but I think he just might deliver something really cool with this film.

I'd even pay to JUST see a Storm Shadow & Snake Eyes standalone.

Can't freaking wait. This already looks better than the original.

Finally, The Rock...oops

I meant finally we get to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation after waiting 9 long months. I am an 80's child like Mr. Shirley and feel this one will get closer to being the Joe I finally want to see. I was more of a fan of the seriousness in the comics as opposed to the cheesy cartoon. To this day I am an enormous Snake-Eyes fan so as long as he's given his due the rest is gravy. In fact, I would love to see a Snake-Eyes origin film...let's face it folks the resources are there and it'll most likely be

Extra tidbit: Dial Tone. Calling his name out loud nowadays sound funny. Maybe he should change his name to Wireless or Bluetooth, hehe. Also, I kinda like G.I. Joe Extreme as well. And those Hot Toys Storm Shadow & Snake Eyes are super awesome.
