    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

    This film failed in the same way that Street Fighter and basically any video game film made by Uwe Boll did.
    If you remove the familiar names from the script it's just another b-grade action movie that would have tanked at the box office.

    IMO all the did was do a google search for G.I. Joe character names and skip down to the last page. Marlon Wayans brought his same unnecessary comic relief that won him his Oscar for his roll in the D&D movie.
    Also, the whole thing between Duke, Baroness and Cobra Commander was so forced it left Joe fans scratching their heads so hard they started scraping up bits of their skull.

    The sequel looks a little promising as the story is actually based on an existing G.I. Joe story line instead of them pulling something out of their butt.
