G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA by Stephen Sommers


gi joe: the rise of cobra - embitterment level - disappointment level
A movie based on some action figures? With an “original” plot where a mad arms manufacturer (Christopher Eccleston) and his evil genius scientist (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) strive for world domination and only the mighty G.I. Joes, a secret international taskforce, can stop them? With lots of CGI, explosions and bogus science? At least the trailer promises some hot girlies (Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols) to lure the young male target audience into the theatres.

Not much to hope for then, but – surprise – Stephen Sommers milks the scrawny premises for every possible drop of fun and excitement and delivers more than could be hoped for. It’s a guilty pleasure (and of course far from a good film), but it’s as much fun as you can expect from a mindless action flick, and easily superior to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
