From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.
Action Adventure - This adaptation of the '80s toy line, comic book, and animated series
is an action adventure aimed at the young male action crowd. Some
violence makes it inappropriate and maybe too intense for younger
children, but this is basically a cartoon come to life.
PROFANITY: 4 S-words, 1 GD, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Shootings, martial arts fights, very little blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Fights, chases, explosions, destruction. COMEDY: Some silly one-liners and comic banter.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 200 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from the males and the female reviews aren't too far behind. Virtually everyone enjoyed it very much with half or better loving it. Definitely a "Must See."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The male reviews are GREAT! Most loved "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra." The female reviews are close to great. Unfortunately, a large percentage rated it "Very Good," which equals a very good but not quite great movie.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are both GREAT! They aren't quite as high as the teen reviews, but the comic book style storyline is probably to blame for that.
