G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
|Genre:||Action & Adventure|
I don’t really feel like writing a lengthy review, especially since I can sum it up in a few sentences. The Rise of Cobra absolutely destroyed — completely obliterated, mercilessly devastated — my childhood memories. The Duke and the Baroness, armed with their mind-numbingly cheesy lines, just about made me go to the bathroom so many times. I kid you not.
It was a fun movie, nonetheless.
I thought I was going to sleep through parts of it (like I did with Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince), but I didn’t. I like my action movies…well, action-packed. While I usually get bored with car chase scenes, I actually enjoyed the ones in this. Nothing beats flying cars. And Arnold Vosloo (whom I always mistake for Billy Zane).
The film didn’t pretend that it had something substantial to offer story-wise. It was simply entertaining.

I enjoyed the movie. The story was okay and the acting too. From the get-go, I knew that my childhood was to be mercilessly slaughtered by this film so I've already accepted it ( OMG, they just need to do thundercats now and then I'll die).
You know, When I saw Arnold Vosloo and Brendan Frasier, I was really expecting them to fight since this movie is from the same director as the mummy! haha
