    As far as story is concerned you don't get much, beyond what the trailer provides. As you see in the trailer, you don't have any Joes from the first movie, save Snake Eyes, Lady Jaye and (very briefly, as the trailer shows) Duke (Channing Tatum.) Which I found to be a little disappointing, because there was a story arc between Duke and Baroness that was hinted at being continued beyond the first movie... nope; you don't get Baroness, not even a reference to her. Which is how they were able to write Duke out of the movie so easily. (Don't get angry, it's not a spoiler.)

    We do however get to continue the story of Cobra seeking world domination, with Destro, Storm Shadow, Zartan, & Cobra Commander (not played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but played this time by Luke Bracey... yeah, your guess is as good as mine, I don't know him either.) The near achieved world domination is actually quite birlliant. I was sad that they didn't use Frank Welker as Cobra Commander's voice. (Hey, if Michael Bay can use cartoon Optimus's voice, Peter Cullen, for the live-action Optimus, I can hope that the movie studio would be at least true to the voice of the global terrorist that can never take over the world.)

    I only saw this in regular vanilla 2D. I am looking forward to actually skipping IMAX 3D and seeing this in DBOX, because there is lots of visually fast-paced action that I have seen similarly fast-paced action in other 3D movies. With 3D movies that have fast-paced action, the 3D makes it worse, due to your brain trying to process the illusion of 3D for movement on screen that is too fast and doesn't give your brain enough time to process the 3D imagery that flashes by on the screen.

    There is lots and lots and lots of action. If I were to see it in 3D, it would be in IMAX 3D, mereley for the sake of the cliff-side fight scene between a bunch of red ninja's and Snake Eyes. Just the scale and scope of the land scape was breathtaking in 2D, alone. Speaking of Snake Eyes, there is a fight between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow that was really awesome and is nearly alone worth the price of admission.

    Finally, some would argue, but I believe our summer movies have arrived, a month early!

    Growing up I played with GI Joe and Transformers. All I can say is that the GI Joe movies have done my childhood justice and Transformers has not. These aren't great movies but they are fun popcorn movies. This one is better than the first one but I don't really know why they brought back the cast to kill them off.

    Violent and some profanity. None of the violence is overly graphic. You see gun shots and then people laying on the floor. The show is full of action, and in my opinion this G.I. Joe movie is better than the first simply because of the more demanding stunt work and slightly better script. The show still isn't a masterpiece, and the script is still pathetic at times. Just sit back and enjoy the amazing action sequences and stunts because that makes this show worth one viewing.

    G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a clunky mess of a movie. Thankfully, ClearPlay manages to take out the stuff that might worry parents whose young teen boys are the target audience. On the whole, the film is likely too juvenile for many adults to enjoy. Hollywood has put out a lot of movies that require viewers to shut off their brains, but for G.I. Joe: Retaliation it’s best not to bring one at all. The end gambit in particular is so ridiculous that I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to laugh or not. That said, with ClearPlay, your young teenage boys may safely enjoy the testosterone boost that comes from guns, swords and explosions... See Full Review

    This is horrible. It gets long and boring. Not worth at all to watch. It's time to the series and movie on to the next toy action hero movie. Plus Channing Tatum is not even the movie half the time.

    This movie is great with all of its action pact events! The one problem with it is that it didn't stay consistent with the first GI Joe movie. If I were to change it I would add more action scenes!

    ... parents should think twice (or more) before shelling out money for this high action movie. Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum may have their own action figures based on their characters in G.I. Joe: Retaliation but the film’s violence will likely play havoc with the young viewers these toys are aimed at... See Full Review

    To say "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is a video game for the big screen is to insult a number of video games that are far more creative, challenging and better-looking. Like a Dumpster bin behind Tiffany's, this contains nothing but well-packaged garbage... See Full Review
