Not many people even wanted a sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra but here it is. Want it or not, you won’t be able to ignore it because of the numerous posters everywhere portraying The Rock.
The Rock is usually not cast for his sentimentality. Don’t worry, there is absolutely no sentimentality in this sequel. He sweats and strains as he overcomes scuffles on his way. Mind you, everything is just as absurd as the first movie. You won’t believe it but in one scene, the absurdity is actually worse!
The original came out in 2009 and if you can’t remember a lot about it you don’t need to worry because the sequel begins with a harder reminder of the original. Everything in this movie has been scripted as if to tarp the attention span of a 13-year-old teenager.
What are the basics? Channing Tatum leads the G.I. Joes who are framed because they assassinated the Pakistani President.
You will find too many fist fights and cleavage and ridiculous styles and so on in this movie. The subtitle Retaliation is actually apt owing to the fact that the franchise is literally fighting to stay in the game. The only thing to look forward to is the 3D post conversion and the Himalaya scrap.
