Not directed by "The Mummy" Sommers, this time, though.

Still...WTF, Mr. Willis?

That's Britain's own Jonathan Pryce, inexplicably playing an American.  Personally I think the presence of Bruce Willis means that the producers acknowledge that the whole thing is kinda ridiculous.

The movie should be called G.I. Bruce, for all it has in common with G.I. Joe.

I actually adore the first GI Joe Movie. I don't think it's good, but it's bad in so many delightful ways that it brings me intense joy to watch it. I was afraid, when the first one came out, that they would forget that the cartoon was intensely silly and try to play it serious. Then I saw that Cobra had built robot fish to swim around its under-sea base and my fears were alleviated. :^)

Then you should find this quite enjoyable too Scott.

Now that I think about it, Bruce Willis' comeback line in the GI Joe Trailer should have been "My ears are ringing a bit".

This looks fucking terrible. I mean weapons-grade terrible.

Ohhh... I dunno... weapons-grade terrible is Red Zone Cuba. This looks butter knife terrible by comparison.

Of course, I thought the first GI Joe was a truly fun popcorn movie... It was sorta like how I hoped the first Transformers movie would have been in regards to turning corny toy cartoons of my youth into movies. Transformers had shaky and poorly framed action scenes where you couldn't tell what the damn was going on most of the time... GI Joe at least had action scenes that were enjoyable. Just like the first Mummy movie, from the same director, GI Joe was shit... but at least it was entertaining shit. The sequel looks to be something I'll rent / stream and have a good enough time watching.

Willis is playing General Joe Colton.

I'm a huge GI Joe fan and I didn't care for the first one. I might need to watch it again, but I'm pretty sure it still will not be good. This new one has potential to be better, and they ripped off scenes from the comics it appears.  I'm also interested to see how they pull off all the non-returning cast. My guess is they will all be casualties of what we saw in the trailer.  I definitely will see it in the theater.

Well the movie has been pushed back until March 2013... so they can add 3D in an effort to have better numbers overseas.

Stupid.
