It's worth noting that it doesn't just make the minimum effort to be the best of the three but that it actually works hard to offer more than just bubble-gum thrills.

While Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is an improvement, this franchise still has a long way to go before it truly finds its footing

While Golding offers a different portrayal than the rich, debonair pretty boy we have seen in the past, he can't save this film.

It's likely this will make fans unhappy and general audiences will not find this one engaging enough. It's very likely this will not spur more of these sadly.

Golding breathes enough life into the title role to make it worth a look.

A forgettable action/superhero movie that aims for gravitas but ends up feeling rather insignificant. Is this the start of the GIJOECU? I doubt it.

In this context, it's hard to tell if Henry Golding, the movie's star, has potential as an action man. Is he too pretty and polite? His grimacing just makes him look like someone trying to get into a pair of tight trousers.

Snake Eyes seems to barely recognise the talents of the cast it has on hand.

It's the franchise that nobody wanted, featuring characters that nobody cares about and starring an actor who struggles with the basics of the craft.

...the result should be considered inessential for all but the most devoted action hounds...

It's not going to change your life or your philosophy. It's a big, loud summer tentpole movie designed solely to while away a rainy couple of hours. The cinematic equivalent of a Big Mac and Fries. And who doesn't enjoy one of those once in a while?

Just when you start questioning why this has even been tagged a GI Joe movie at all, it starts throwing in more stuff involving giant anacondas and a mysterious crystal thing that shoots fire and makes people invincible.

Snake Eyes finally speaks, but with frustrating action scenes, a middling story and unearned sequel-baiting, there's not much here that's worth listening to, or watching.

To paraphrase a line from Snake Eyes itself, all studios make mistakes, it's what they do next that matters.

Watching 'Snake Eyes' is like watching someone attempt to fashion a silk purse out of a sow's ear. You want them to succeed, and they almost do, but it's not there.

A G.I. Joe spin-off film that seems more interested in teasing a sequel than in actually telling an imaginative origin story.

This film may have more respect for its source material on an intellectual level, but the 2009/2013 movies at least understood that G.I. Joe should be fun.

Loved the complex characters & formulaic overall narrative. It does need some polishing with the action sequences, but the characters & this world (East vs West perspectives) kept me intrigued. I'm looking forward to a possible sequel.

[L]ikely isn't as good as the studios hoped it would be. But neither is it as bad as I feared it would be. These days, decent is a pretty solid start ...Snake Eyes may not have rolled a winner, but at least it didn't crap out.

A shoddy opening, an intriguing middle, and a deflated conclusion. 'Snake Eyes' is as mixed a bag as they come.
