This is what the live action movie should have been like. sadly I was somewhat disapointed by the live action G.I.Joe movie.
in the live action movie the Joe team was well represented, but Cobra was not, plus they made the Baroness a goodie two shoes, and dont get me started on the Snake Eyes orgin where he and storm are kids in a truly stupid and laughable fight scean.
but enough about that.
G.I. Joe Resolute started off as a webcartoon. Im VERY glad that it will be on DVD. its a Very good movie. a true G.I. Joe classic.
a word of warning, espeisly to parents, this movie is very adult. there are some brutal fight sceans in this movie, some blood, and a few people die.
Resolute begins with Cobra returning after a long period of rest. they kick off by killing off captain Blood and leaving him out in plain veiw. the Joe team have littel time to figure out Cobra's plan, but they must work fast, or the world is doomed.
we see many favorites in this movie, Duke, Snake Eyes, Tunnel Rat, Destro (in a mask as he should be unlike mr. Eccelston), the Baroness (in proper evil mood), Zartan pops up to, as do many other Cobra opretives and Joes.
again there are many deaths, such as capt. Blood. Bazooka is the first of the Joe team to die, just to show how serious this situation is.
Cobra is now out to use their new weaponry to dominat the world. Destro and the Baroness are holding some scientiest prisoner, and Storm Shadow is hunting Snake Eyes.
the movie does a good job of retelling the orgin of Snake Eyes (better then the live action movie did).
i like this version of Cobra Comander. there is even a slight acknolagement of the old Sunbow series. the Resolute Commander states that he once pretended to play the fool to trick his enemies. now he is in rare form. the commander is at his most evil, in this movie. utterly insane and defitly a leader not to challenged or questioned. i very much enjoyed this version of him. (again much better then the live action movie).
now as most Joe fans know in the comics Snake Eyes and Scarlett were an item.
but in the Sunbow cartoon Duke and Scarlett flirted off and on.
this movie ties these two continutys.
so it seems like all this time there has been a sort of love triangl going on.
scarlett must chose between Duke and Snake Eyes
and she does indeed decid on the one she cares for the most.
the other chartures are good.
Destro sounds a bit TO much like Sean Connery though. but its good to see him in proper from. to bad he dosent get more screan time, but i was glad to see him play out his role in this movie rather well.
the movie starts off with it seemeing that Cobra will be victorious, so the Joes are hard pressed to attain victory. which is good.
all around this is a good movie, with great battles, chartures, and story.
its a very good G.I.Joe movie that any fan of the francise will enjoy.
and i just cant say it enough but Resloute is everything the live action movie should have been but wasnt.
