Will the second GI Joe movie be any better than the first?

The 2nd movie based on the GI Joe franchise, Retaliation, is set to debut in the next 2 months. It may be better than the first one, which, while it wasn't set in Geneva, slapped fans in the face by setting the Pit base in Egypt (!), which certainly wouldn't benefit the movie's chances now a year after the so-called "Arab spring". And director Sommers' comments telling that it was more of an Obama movie didn't help either.

However, as Big Hollywood pointed out a few months ago, the material available so far avoids identifying GI Joe as American, and that could still work to the movie's disadvantage. If the studio's smart, they'll at least allow official press screenings this time.

Labels: ,

It won't be good if they continue the anti-American streak from the first film, and if GI Joe still stands for "Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity." I'm really not impressed with the trailers for the film, and the last one really left a foul taste in my mouth, so I won't bother to see it at all.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
