This failed attempt to resurrect the classic G.I. Joe series comes across with animation, story, and dialogue that belong in cheap game cut scenes. It had the potential of genetically modified Cobra troops and old-school characters reborn, but falls miserably short of the (admittedly already cheesy) quality of the original cartoon. Now, I am rather easy to please, and really enjoyed the old cartoon, but this film is mostly a string of mediocre action, weak character development (or involvement for those who already know them), and terrible puns at every turn. All told, the target audience should be more the 10 and younger crowd who have likely had no experience with real G.I. Joe. Current fans from around 20 or older will be sorely disappointed and should avoid the expenditure and wasted 80 minutes.
