on the worse end of the action packed spectrum.

Terrible waste of time. Decent cast was not used correctly.

I liked this action fiction movie. It is violent most of the movie. It is not appropriate for young audience. It is not very sexual. There is very little dialogue and lots of action. The G.I. Joe are in peril caught in the middle of an conspiracy they have to solve. It is a happy ending. The heroes are rewarded and they save their reputations and the country.

I don't even like GI Joe, and I was very taken with this film. Obviously it isn't very deep or inspiring, but it's got the right mix of humour and action you'd expect from this sort of license. Great cast too, especially Marlon Wayans. I was convinced the part played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt was really Keanu Reaves when I watched it at first, which was very thrilling at the time, somehow.

Despite the cheesy script and corny acting, it was ACTION PACKED! It was like Ironman and the Avengers took over the military to make super soldiersthat fight the infamous bitter, evil, disfigured scientist .

This movie can be summed up in one word, corny!

I really didn't like this movie. I thought it was really lame. The storyline was boring and overall it just didn't hold my attention.

Very good action movie and really entertaining.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”.

One of the worst movies ever...dumb everything. They also tried to make it "hot" with that dumb Boom Boom Pow remix at the end credits... FAIL on every level!

Stick to the cartoons.

it feels they spent half an hour on the script, and then just threw in a couple action scenes. it got boring after 15 minutes

Wow, what a waste of time, and plastic. DVDs only cost a few cents, but I'm sure spending it on a lollipop would have been a better idea. As others have commented this movie is simply a testosterone ride, and that's alright for some. But the technical goofs, bad science, and poor writing were simply inexcusable. Examples such as explosions underwater with flames, being able to move a submarine though water at the same speed as you would though air when water is 400 x denser. There's also the fact that ice has a tendency to float on water (at least it does when I do it), so I'm curious how they figured that blowing up the ice-pack would crush the underwater laboratory. There's lots more, but suffice it to say that you should save your brain cells, and forget this mess.

Horrific movie. Director thinks a lot of noise and action can replace script, plot, acting, story. Gordon-Levitt has one of his worst performances in his career. Very miscast.

Just another mediocre rendition of a great bande dessinée.
Shame since it could have been so much more.
Way too much testosterone for my taste.

It's OK for a summer action film, though it gets a little silly. I think it drew more inspiration from the cartoon than the better comics.

Fair - GI Joe: The Rise of the Cobra (2009) 118 min. This film is barely watchable. There’s a lot of action in the film but no heart to speak of. The film does get better when the Joes travel to Paris and try to save the Eiffel Tower – the car chase scene is pretty imaginative and saves this film from mediocrity. Unfortunately, you’ll have to trudge through 50 minutes of film to get to the Paris scene.

I normally enjoy action-packed movies, but this was just horrible. I was so bored out of my mind by the cartoonish dialogue and storyline. It just dragged on. Not even some spectacular special effects could save this one.

Really super charged CGI - and highly entertaining - in a mind-numbing way... look out for the pre-requisite sequel... I watched it strictly to see Sienna Miller (she is so chameleon-like in almost every role I've ever seen her in - what an extraordinary actress! She's great here too for 3/4 of the movie, until she goes back to type at the end (you'll understand when you see it!) Everyone else in it - including the usually reliable Dennis Quaid, who plays his part like the cat that swallowed the canary (read: "big paycheque for a couple of hours' work) were disappointing. Some cute touches - like the role-reversal on the black/while colour designating good bro' vs. bad bro' thing... but for the most part I fast-forwarded a lot of the vast panoramic scenery leading up to one battle or another - because I've seen it all too often these days - actually, even before computer-generated imagery - starting with (and here I'm dating myself) DR. NO - which this flick steals from shamelessly!

The only thing missing was for the bad guys to breakout into a chorus of: "I Love Paris in the Springtime"... when the little critters started munching... but oops... why spoil the plot!

Mindless fun for 2 hrs... bring the popcorn!
