G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

I didn't collect Joe figures as a kid, so I didn't see the Hollywood anus take a giant shit on a beloved childhood memory. All I saw was a film that had more time spent on calculating how many explosions were needed to turn a profit than it had on improving the script, which, let’s face it, isn't atypical of the summer action movie genre. In that respect, it's as good or as bad as many of the other below average popcorn time-wasters. I even enjoyed that utterly ridiculous chase through the streets of Paris.

Oddly enough these Joe films I keep meaning to take a peek at just out of curiosity.

I was never a Joe fan either as a kid, so I don't know what it might be all about or what's right/wrong about the films.
