Snake Eyes takes aim in this pic from G.I. Joe Retaliation

Mar. 15, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Snake-Eyes, probably one of the most popular "badass" characters in pop culture; He's mysterious, wears a knight-visor mask, has a pet wolf named Timber, and a fondness for Uzi's.  Oh, and he's a ninja.  Put that in a blender and hit puree and you'll get...well, you'll get nothing because you don't put ninjas in blenders.  You'll see a puff of smoke, hear a metallic slice, and, oh yes, that's your head toppling to the floor.

Played by Darth Maul himself, Ray Park, Snake-Eyes is the only character that they almost got right in the first film, which really isn't that hard. See paragraph above. With that said, here is Snake-Eyes, baddest ninja of them all, from G.I. JOE: RETALIATION:

G.I. Joe: Retaliation, like many of the films being released this summer, is shaping up to be a real contender.  Never, in a million years, would I have expected the director of the STEP UP dance films to deliver a G.I. Joe film that paid true homage to the source material.  With everything I've seen, heard, and read, this film seems like it will deliver on the lore of the Joe's of the 80's that so many of use grew up with. 

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION opens on June 22, 2012

Extra Tidbit: With the right creative team, a spin off movie with just Snake-Eyes would NOT be a terrible idea.

Snake Eyes looks much better here without those stupid sculpted lips.

It would be a GREAT idea!!!

"With the right creative team, a spin off movie with just Snake-Eyes would NOT be a terrible idea."

In fact, this could potentially be better than Wolverine. Plus, they could have him to a stand alone mission and/or crossover with another group of Joe's. I'm becoming more and more of a fan (movie version) of Snake than Logan by a wide stretch.

Ray Park knocked it out of the park (see what I did there) with Snake Eyes, and the trailer for this looks very faithful to the cartoon. One thing though. While I agree that the rock should be the star (man's a ball of charisma), Flint should still remain the leader. Much like the first X-Men movie, where Cyke was still the leader, but Wolvie the "star," Road Block should be second in command, not the leader.

All mixed reactions to the G.I Joe franchise aside...

I'd just like to say: Darth Maul...we miss your supreme bad-assness.

THAT Looks cool...

I'll never understand HOW THE F*CK they screwed up Snake Eyes mask in the first movie. Anyone take responsibility for that?

You gotta admit...if we were gonna cast a GI Joe movie, I doubt we'd do much better than Bruce Willis, The Rock, and Darth Maul.
