The film can be fun in pieces and is a much closer adaptation of the source, but it just doesn't have the guts to go completely [expletive] insane.

Long on incoherent destruction and short on logic and a compelling structure on which to plaster its 3D mayhem.

This storyline certainly has an interesting peace-through-strength/Manchurian candidate subtext, but it's lost when the film veers off to a mystical Himalayan ninja temple and is not only completely confusing, but also abominably acted.

Should you see G.I. Joe: Retaliation? Yes. If you like G.I. Joe.

Any hint of amusement or wit is quickly glossed over in favour of action sequences, clunky dialogue and forgettable 3-D.

Retaliation takes itself about as seriously as it should. Which is to say, not very. The dialogue is light and breezy, filled with jokes and sarcastic asides.

It's probably not a stretch to note that G.I. Joe: Retaliation improves considerably over its 2009 predecessor, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra...

Amidst a couple of nice action beats, there's plenty of stilted dialogue, poorly drawn characters, and heaps of generic rock music.

A terrible film with a confusing plot, jarring tonal fluctuations, characters that engender no sympathy, and a strangely flippant attitude toward violence.

Bruce Willis, The Rock, explosions, comedy and action help this popcorn sequel rise above its more Sci-Fi predecessor, but even fans caught up in the action will occasionally find this live action film to be just a bit too cartoonish.
