Anyone who knows me knows 3 Basic things: 1. I am a furry, 2. I am a Gamer, 3. G.I. Joe is possibly one of my favorite things ever.
As a child I spent most of my time not playing video games surprisingly, but had a stunning collection of G.I. Joes, and a PlayStation library of 7 games (only 2 of which were any good) I watched the original cartoon, and tried collecting as many of the characters as possible.
My cousin (You know him as KrautKiller in my comics, we'll call him KK for short.) Also collected G.I. Joes, we would even trade them, that said I collected a large collection of Cobra (The bad guys) while he had alot of the G.I. Joe team. KK is like a brother too me and we spent alot of time together (and still do) and only until a few years ago (when I got a PS2 and he got a Xbox) Did we start playing games together.
Now all that is said, you know im a fan of G.I. Joe, im familiar and in love with the original work, I will now lay down the review on G.I. Joe, the rise of Cobra.
I enjoyed the movie, deeply. Theres not much to say, they captured the essence of G.I. Joe while giving a decent story to Cobra's Rise to power, one much more believable than cobra commander getting the loyalty of the small town of springfield and having them all become a terrorist outfit.
I think everyone expects it to be as cheesy and spot on to the originals, and not what it is, its the cartoon put into a real world context, and i was overjoyed to still see out of this world tech and vehicles that just seemed so cheesy and wacky that its just "yeah right". Break it down and you have what made G.I. Joe, in a more "adult enjoyable" way, where people do actually die, and G.I. Joe and Cobra are neck and neck, with ninjas fighting in the middle of the street and gunfire flying down the paris streets.
Overall, it was awesome, the only things I dislike was cobra commanders mask, and the baroness's backstory.
I cant wait for the new movie.
