I know the fact that I’m looking forward to G.I. Joe: Retaliation calls my opinions as a film critic into question, but I don’t care. This movie looks hilariously over-the-top in all the right ways, not the least of which is the way that Snake Eyes’ motorcycle can both shoot missiles and become missiles! I can’t remember which critic said this about the first G.I. Joe film, but it’s totally true: G.I. Joe successfully recreates the way an eight-year-old boy plays with the toys at the centre of the franchise. And if I were eight years old, I’d probably consider these movies to be masterpieces.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation comes out June 29, 2012.
