SNAKE EYES Early Reactions Declare The Film An "Unmitigated Disaster" And "Devoid Of Energy"

SNAKE EYES Early Reactions Declare The Film An "Unmitigated Disaster" And "Devoid Of Energy"

Paramount Pictures waited until the last minute before allowing critics to share their thoughts on Snake Eyes, and if these first reactions are any indication, there's actually a good reason for the delay!

With Snake Eyes just days away from arriving in theaters, the review embargo has lifted and the response has been a mostly negative one thus far. 

It seems some critics were surprised that it wasn't as bad as they expected, but that's hardly a glowing verdict, and one longtime fan and reporter goes so far as to say this "unmitigated disaster" ended up "[breaking] my heart." Only a handful of reviews have surfaced, though most are either middle-of-the-road or negative based on what we've seen from those outlets. 

Initial social media reactions are almost always universally positive, so the sheer number of criticisms here is a surprise. There are definitely those who liked the film, but if it fails to slice down the competition at the box office this weekend, then the G.I. Joe franchise will likely be shelved all over again.

The last film in the series was 2013's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, so it's taken this long for Paramount to bring the series back to the big screen. Unfortunately, Snake Eyes wasn't welcomed by fans when it was announced as it was clear from day one that major liberties were being taken with the title character.
