At least plenty of stuff blows up.
September 8, 2020
The acting is consistently weak with the exception of a surprisingly hip Sienna Miller.

You'd think it would be impossible not to extract some fun from a tale climaxing with a nuclear attack on the Eiffel Tower. But the filmmakers found a way.

GI Joe is first and foremost an action movie, designed for bombastic effects, exhilarating sequences...and larger-than-life characters.

If I'm to have American imperial propaganda, I couldn't ask for it to be any more shoddily made or any more unconvincing than this.

Tatum and Miller are dreadfully bad. Wayans feels like he came in from the set of another movie and Dennis Quaid, as the G.I. Joe commander, looks about as disinterested with the whole affair as I was by the time the film ended.

Moves at a brisk enough pace to keep its rampant stupidity merely annoying rather than actively offensive.
September 8, 2017
G.I. Joe lacks structure, believability, decent characters, competent actors and the helmsman has clearly abandoned ship. Save yourself a headache and don't bother with this one.
March 23, 2013
A dull, passionless take on a property that any fan could have outdone with half the budget. No Joe!
April 4, 2011
It's about nothing, but who cares? It's the last big action movie of the summer and it does what it's supposed to do.

Here comes GI Joe, a film so loud and dumb it makes Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen look like a Mike Leigh docudrama.
August 9, 2010
As is usually the case, the seething bad guys make for far more "interesting" onscreen characters than the heroes.
June 2, 2010
Joe is the latest bloated float in Sommers's sad parade of cinematic shame...a glorified Cannon Films production with a nasty case of ADD."
April 15, 2010
G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra is a very throwaway experience, likely to be forgotten by the film world very quickly.
January 31, 2010
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is like a term paper that fulfills the word count requirement and drops in key phrases to demonstrate some familiarity with the material but is largely filler.
December 12, 2009
It's just as you would expect: poorly acted, conventionally written and occasionally fun.
December 6, 2009
... it's actually better (again, the wrong word; "not nearly as awful" is closer to correct) than the recent Transformers sequel, and significantly shorter to boot.
November 14, 2009
We're glad we didn't pay full price for our movie tickets.
November 7, 2009
Light entertainment with little to call memorable ... but at least therein exists some detectable evidence that the filmmakers had a soft spot for G.I. Joe and simply wanted to deliver its essence to the screen.
October 31, 2009
expensively produced escapist fantasy designed to protect the delicate sensibilities of the kids while never for a moment taxing their budding critical thinking skills
