G.I. Joe: Retaliation: Extended Action Cut (2013)

The G.I Jokes return for a sequel that feels more like a reboot considering that hardly anyone bothered to come back from the first movie. The result is a bigger adventure with a smaller team at its core.
The Rock takes over as the main Joe; his sweaty head dominates every scene he’s in. (Does he have someone spray it for effect or is it naturally sweaty?) The remainder of the two hour running time is split between buddy comedy, action scenes with approx 60 cuts per second and night-time shootouts so the bullets can leave tracers that look dramatic.
