SPOILERS: Thoughts On The New G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Preview

<font color=red>SPOILERS:</FONT> Thoughts On The New G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Preview

This weekend Paramount Pictures decided to attach a four minute preview of G.I. Joe: Retaliation in front of all IMAX 3D and regular theatrical 3D showings of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

It was very exciting, but I think my views can be best expressed in the video below that features Byung–Hun Lee as Storm Shadow and Ray Park as Snake Eyes.

In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy, Cobra, they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe® characters. March 29th, 2013!

some of these action sequences are beyond stretching credibility! it's like they're trying to compete with superheroes, and end up makin themselves look ridiculous in the process
InfiniteMonkey - 1/26/2013, 2:22 PM
Only if the first one didn't exist and there was no Channing Tatum. This might...erm...

I don't like it. Maybe it's just this bootleg, but that was quite disorienting. I was planning on seeing this with low expectations, but honestly don't know if I can lower them even more.
Wildaniel - 1/26/2013, 2:33 PM
That was awesome! I wonder why does Snake Eyes need Storm Shadow so bad? And how did Storm Shadow even survive in the first movie? He was stabbed and fell in an icy pond under water, lol.
jessepostal - 1/26/2013, 2:35 PM
How can you not think that that was not fantastic!!!
KeefNCookies - 1/26/2013, 2:37 PM
This may be the laziest article I've seen yet. Thanks for wasting my time
jessepostal - 1/26/2013, 2:48 PM
@tea, haha what does she know, you could be hung like a god and they would still pick it apart over time :)

I thought this movie came out during the summer. Shows how much I care.
marvel72 - 1/26/2013, 2:57 PM
looks watchable but i just don't think its worth a trip to the cinema.

tired of the [frick]king automatic ads that play over every goddamn page. trying to watch a video and there are 2 others playing the same thing at two different speeds in the background. how about automatically play them but mute them and if someone wants to see the same trailer 30 times then they can turn the audio on.

I wonder why people would dislike Gi Joe Retaliation, it could be so ood action flick that everyoe want it to be..don't know what the shit people would hate it, just will though JJ abrams and That Christopher Nolan Boring movies good only,Oh common,many director already surpass them. coz bored....!
MisterMagurlypse - 1/26/2013, 3:22 PM
Honestly, I don't think I could be any more excited to see this. Cool stuff!

@Nail..if you come across any Cobra Commander footage, please post. They're leaving us in the dark with him. I think he'll be done right this time.
MassNerder - 1/26/2013, 3:35 PM
Thought it looked sweet. Reminded me of the 80's comic.
animeex - 1/26/2013, 3:36 PM
I just hope it's not a Rock movie and it's G.I. Joe. I also know I will hear some backlash... But don't care that Willis is in it. He is ok but I did not want him in the Joe's. He just reminds me of the guy that tries to be as cool and tough as his two buddies Arnold and Stallone.
wallhead - 1/26/2013, 3:46 PM
Can't see vid. Can someone give a short sum up?
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/26/2013, 3:48 PM
To me the style screams G.I. Joe but The Rock and Bruce Willis ruins the feeling. Too known for this film sorry.
And plot contains too small team of Joes.
What i wanted to see is Cobra starting a WW3 and Joes trying to stop them with all its memorable members.

Just should have rebooted.

@tea sweet Jinx gif! ;)
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/26/2013, 3:50 PM
Storm Shadow, Snake-Eyes, Firefly and Cobra Commander are gonna be the most enjoyable characters from this movie i bet.
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:07 PM
@Jesse I'm with ya . This looks fun . I really didn't like the first movie(was just really boring and had no life to it)But this was cool.

@KeefnCookies...yo man this is an intervention...time for you to be just Ncookies...lay off the keef ; )
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:09 PM
@Nails..this article is a little weak and lazy man. Next time can you also put up a vid of you acting out said video to old timey music like a silent film? thanks ; )
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:11 PM
@Blackandyellow.."why yes dear,that is the Warmasheen Fellow"...I think he's loosing it boys.
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:11 PM
ps. Badass pic
bigcountry64 - 1/26/2013, 4:12 PM
Now that is the GI Joe I played with as a kid. Also paying homage to the original comics with the silent interlude.

Much better than Stephen Somer's James bond wannabe movie that raped GI Joe mythology.
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:18 PM
I had an uncle Joe with G.I. problems. PeeeeYeeeew!
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:20 PM
Does Sommers still get work? After that bullshit fest Van Helsing?
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:40 PM
[email protected]..I thought it was a real pic of a render we've seen before (so a new pic)...I need to lay off the pipe then!!
DioFoRio - 1/26/2013, 4:40 PM
ps. just thought it was funny how it was "gi joe" "gi joe" then you came in like"Bam, warmachine bitches"
bigcountry64 - 1/26/2013, 4:47 PM
I've got a 6 inch Major Bludd you can play with. He has a funny helmet and one eye.
SugarYumYum - 1/26/2013, 4:47 PM
Looks cool enough.

Not cool enough to bump it up from a Redbox rental to a opening weekend ticket though.
incrediblesuperbatspider - 1/26/2013, 5:59 PM
I wish we lived in a world where people really dress like that, you know, outside of cosplay lol
Bandrews1 - 1/26/2013, 6:57 PM
I don't care what anybody says this looks awesome, and I think it might wind up surprising all of us.
Robert - 1/26/2013, 7:28 PM
The Snake Eyes mountain fight scene looks cool and believable, b/c we all know from the cartoons EXACTLY what Snake Eyes can do. He's a waaaaay above average ninja, so why not make him a bad ass?
ahhmynuts - 1/26/2013, 10:19 PM
oh yeah!
IIIAdamantiumIII - 1/26/2013, 10:19 PM
I liked it and H&G was a pretty fun movie
mgeoff88 - 1/27/2013, 12:03 AM
That was awesome! Ninja on ninja action is always welcome.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/27/2013, 12:35 AM
Snake, Storm and rest of the Ninjas did pretty amazing stuff in the comics too. So the mountain scene definitely is faithful.
Jimdlux - 1/27/2013, 5:59 AM
Adrianne Palicki is in it...that means it will flop!
masterhater - 1/27/2013, 9:12 AM
I hated the first movie and I super hate Channing tatum. However I think this movie is gonna be good. The director seems really pumped about GIJoe. Also no stupid Wayne brother in it this time. No matter what it's will be a huge improvement.
