GI Joe The Rise of Cobra





GI Joe The Rise of Cobra 


I remember being a boy and reading the G.I. Joe comic books. That got me into the toys, and the cartoon. I have recently started giving my old G.I. Joe toys to my boys, and letting them have fun with them. I was pretty interested in seeing what the live action movie would be like. I wound up disappointed in almost every single front.

First off why was Ripcord changed into a black man? Why was Ripcord even in this movie? Marlon Wayans should have been Stalker - that would have made a lot more sense. The Baroness was once in love with Duke? Ripcord and Scarlett getting romantic? Cobra Commander was a US Soldier, and then a mad scientists? The Hard Master died when Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were children?

Snake Eyes took a vow of silence instead of being injured (making him silent). G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra does not actually have Cobra in it. The continuity debacle aside, there is a lot of violence in this film - so it is not for children. Things like enticement to lust were thrown in, as well as a lot of murder.

What really shocked me about G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra is the bad language. The toys are being marketed for kids four years and older. You have to be thirteen years old to see this movie. The toys based on the movie are for kids, but this movie is not.
