You know most family shows jump the shark when they introduce some new, cute young kid that wasnt an original cast member? Introducing G.I. Joe the Movie, where we add some "young" Joe's (and hilariously terrible villians) to a truly remarkable afternoon cartoon of the 80's. Just watch the pre-Serpentor seasons instead of this stinker.
More competently made than the live-action films with good animation, an unforgettable opening sequence that the rest of the film pales in comparison to and being accessible to fans of the cartoon and newcomers alike. Just be sure to forgive instances of VERY obvious executive meddling (without any context, "He's gone into a coma") and the fact that kids are going to be wanting to get some toys afterwards.
There's a reason why no one really remembers this "movie" as it is even more silly than the cheazy cartoon.
I didn't grow up with GI Joe, I didn't watch the shows or play with the toys, so I didn't have any nostalgic connection when I saw this. As it is though, its not good, but it is good ole fun 80's cheese and a pretty cool opening.
Great movie! loved it as a kid, love it as an adult.
Despite some serious flaws, this is still a very entertaining movie. Had they presented the film with Duke dying instead of "going into a coma", it would have more impact. Another flaw is the portrayal of racism in the character "Big Lob". Then there's the improbability of certain circumstances, such as a new and inexperienced recruit being left in charge of security. Still, the commentary by Buzz Dixon is worth owning the dvd for, and despite the flaws in the film, it's enjoyable to watch.
Campy, cheesy, and featuring everything else that the show featured GI Joe the movie is a perfect movie for fans of the show, but for no one else unfortunately
Loses a star for that Cobra-La nonsense, but, still a good flick. And most importantly Cobra Commander is voiced by the only man who can do it, Chris Latta.
nothing beats the classics. this still ranks as number one in my book.
It's an 80s feature length cartoon based off of a toy-line, so you know what to expect. It's fun enough and makes for a good nostalgia trip.
