I looked forward to this movie a while back because I watched the cartoon years ago, but the recent previews scream "lame", so I won't be going to see it.

Judging by most of the comments in this thread (and those of VAB's 8 year old neighbor), I'd say that is a good choice.

Go see G I Joe, try not to listen to some of the losers here who worship the ground ?JJ Abrams walks on.

G I joe is entertaining, adventerous and a fun ride, for adults and kids
it's a good adaptation to the cartoon show. :logical:

Did it ever occur to you that is is possible someone could like both movies?

He's just on a crusade against Trek XI, and will do anything to bring down the movie. The strange thing is he's used Gi Joe as a comparison, knowing that almost everyone who's seen it thinks GI stinks, and that just looks to me like he wants to stir trouble, rather than genuinely rave on about the movie.

Jim, you used to have some positive ideas, all you do these days is spam threads and repeat yourself, if I didn't know any better I'd assume you were just some kid trying to annoy everyone.

I have come to see that all he does is sing the same song over and over again "Star Trek XI Sucks." He's just being a troll.

To ALL LOYALISTS...
Go see G I Joe it's fascinating, FANTASTIC, a great movie,
WOOO I love G I Joe,
Look ...If you want to see a great movie with awesome action, GREAT special effects AND A GOOD story,
forget about that inferior nut-fest Trek movie By JJ Abrams, see this movie, FORGET ABOUT IT..Star Trek is dead..again..
The Producers NEVER INSULT G I Joe fans, the characters change a little but not to the extreme,
Though this movie might not surpass that horrible Star Trek movie by Abrams in box office sales, SO WHAT ??

I think it's one of the best films this year..The cast is great and even better there's NO I-BRIDGE, NO freakin bright lights in your face and most of all no IDIOT saying "wictor " Wictor"..Go see G I joe, Whoopee ! who agrees with me ? ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿:D

Don't you ever get tired of stepping in it?

At least you're getting better at it...You've stepped in it about a half dozen times with one post here.  Truly remarkable.

At least G I Joe had a coherent story and a BELIEVEABLE CAST and cool action.

A believable cast?

Wasn't this movie based on dolls for little boys?

Did Joe have his Kung-Fu Grip working for him or what?

Nah, that was the earlier incarnation of GI Joe, a 12 - inch tall tall for boys with kung fu grip.  

This new film is based on the 80s GI Joe cartoon that was launched in parallel with a line of Hasbro action figures.  Basically, the cartoon sold the toys, the same way transformers did.

I don't know why he is. GI Joe was sooooooo bad, and a disgrace to the cartoon. Being born in 86, I would know lol.

Well, yeah, GI Joe has a lot of similarity to Transformers PC.  Their both over 100 million dollar tent pole action movies based on 80s toy/cartoon franchises.

Well, that's just sad.  :(  I was never a fan of the cartoon, but it's gotta hurt when they bastardize something you liked as a kid.
