WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, THEY DON’T

G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA (2009)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Based on the comic books and cartoon series, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra actually seems like a two-hour, live version of those cartoon episodes you see. Set in the not too distant future, a battle breaks out between the G.I. Joes (an elite military unit) and the Cobra organization when a nanotechnology-based warfare weapon is invented.

It’s an exciting show with lots of explosions, car chases, high-tech machinery and weaponry. The cast is an eyeful too. Ripcord is kinda funny and especially clumsy when in his Accelerator suit initally – all because he did not read the manual. The Baroness is quite hot (very well-endowed despite her scarily-thin legs) but I prefer Scarlett (with healthier-looking legs) and her weapon of choice – the ‘upgraded’ crossbow! But I guess, all eyes were on Storm Shadow (Lee Byung Hun) when he appeared! At least Iwas looking forward to it. He works for Cobra and regularly squares off against his ‘brother’, Snake Eyes, who’s working for the Joes. Everytime they do their ninja thing, I’m hooked.
