Honestly, G.I. Joe doesn't really allow you to breathe. It's an action per minute dosage all throughout.
Well, not really. There's this quiet, backstory scene where Storm Shadow gets all emotional and goes through a change of heart to help the good guys beat the bad guys --which put Kenji to sleep. Apparently, when you experience a sudden change in pace in a literally action-packed movie, you suffer from sudden calm and lose consciousness. Lol! I'm kidding!
The storyline is no great shakes. You know, world domination yadda-yadda, using a super weapon that can level an entire city yadda yadda, the recruitment of an old retired badass to fight the good fight yadda yadda. We've seen this formula before. So if you're watching G.I Joe for depth, you'd be way off mark. But if you're watching G.I. Joe for nostalgia, boom, shwang, and rat-tat-tat-tat, you're in for the party of your life. It's live-action cartoon. And with all the self-destruct buttons that went about in that film, my cartoon analogy is so spot on.
On that note, I'm telling you not to miss this movie. G.I. Joe Retaliation. Giving you that much-needed mindless adrenaline rush in cinemas today.
