Preview: G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Action is measured on an awesomeness scale and when it comes to mind blowing set pieces G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra pushed it to the limit. Sure, it had its problems but it was solid fun. Now the sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is on its way and aiming to smash its previous level on the awesomeness scale. I was lucky enough to see some footage. Check out my thoughts below.

OK, blank stare off... GO!

“The trick to looking at a hollywood action film is to weigh it against the enjoyment you have of it. The first G.I. Joe film was a lot of fun, it was good popcorn junk-food cinema and although it’s riddled with problems you find yourself dragged along for the ride. The film made some money and a sequel was set into motion. The idea? More of the same but bigger. More explosions, more gadgets, more death defying stunts and from what we were shown, G.I. Joe: Retaliation offers just that and then some.”
