G.I. Joe: The Good and the Bad

G.I. Joe had all the elements of what a summer action movie should have, but sadly it did not quite deliver.  You can’t deny that movies based on toys have been a hot commodity this summer and that trend in my opinion will not change any time soon.  Hasbro and Paramount Pictures teamed up to bring G.I. Joe to life. It had action, special effects, and romance but to sum it all up – it was predictable and the ending had me thinking “what was the point of making this film if it was going to end like that?”  It is sad because G.I. Joe could’ve been so much better.

Here is a synopsis of the film from the G.I. Joe official website:

“From the Egyptian Desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the Elite G.I. Joe team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.”
