A dull, passionless take on a property that any fan could have outdone with half the budget. No Joe!
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Here comes GI Joe, a film so loud and dumb it makes Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen look like a Mike Leigh docudrama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

As is usually the case, the seething bad guys make for far more "interesting" onscreen characters than the heroes.

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."

G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra is a very throwaway experience, likely to be forgotten by the film world very quickly.

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.

It's just as you would expect: poorly acted, conventionally written and occasionally fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

... 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.

We're glad we didn't pay full price for our movie tickets.

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.

expensively produced escapist fantasy designed to protect the delicate sensibilities of the kids while never for a moment taxing their budding critical thinking skills
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Un film bâclé qui n'obéit à aucune logique physique ou narrative

A typically frenetic actioner from Stephen Sommers...

This is an action film highlight reel, with any sense of story or purpose shoved to the corners.

Loud, shiny, and critic-proof, this franchise launcher is basically Transformers minus the humanity.

There are bound to be some 10-year-olds who will shout a hearty "Yo Joe!" (the G.I. Joe battle cry). The rest of us will more likely be crying, "Say it ain't so, Joe!"

Fans will be disappointed unless they're so desperate that they'll like anything that says it's a G.I. JOE movie.

This is my favorite bad movie of the summer. And yes, I realize that's a backhanded compliment. Yo Joe.
