    I feel bad for you because I don't think it will come anywhere near meeting your expectations. I just having a feeling it will be utter ****. There are really no talented people involved in making it which tends to mean a horrible film. Maybe it will suprise me but just going on the people involved in making the film I have zero desire to see it.

      I grew up on GI JOE and Transformers - I hope GI JOE doesn't let me down as well. Maybe I can keep my fingers crossed for a cool version of ThunderCats or Voltron.

        Well it does have recognizable names, but your right on the talent part. Hopefully it will surprise everyone and be good, but it's almost assuredly going to be terrible, especially with the extremely high expectations for a movie based on the greatest toy ever from the GI Joe generation, including myself.

          • I died a little inside when I read that GI Joe was being changed into an international anti-terrorism strike force in Brussels.

              what?!?!?!

              that's incredibly lame.

              but I do like this synopsis from IMDB:

              Stephen Sommers will direct (here's hoping he reigns in the CG), from a script by Stuart Beattie. The story is set at Brussels-based GIJOE, an acronym for the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, and revolves around an international co-ed force of operatives who use high-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil org headed by a Scottish arms dealer. --Real Movie News 11/20/07

              This has since changed due to overwhelimg negative response from fans and even servicemen.

              GiJoe is once again "A real american hero", not an international UN type organization according to Hasbro

              • also, the pics don't look that great on IMDB, especially how Channing Tatum as Duke does not look like Duke, they all just have dumb futuristic looking suits on

                  Well they did the same thing with X-Men, giving them all brand new costumes.

                    true, but I'm more upset about this

                    especially because Dennis Quaid's character looks more like Duke than Duke actually does

                      That's because Duke is being played by a 20 something.

                          also true

                          and I cannot see 3rd Rock from the Sun pulling off an evil mastermind in the form of Cobra commander

                          also, Marlon Wayans?

                            Gordon-Levitt is awesome though.

                            Marlon Wayans only got the part because of his performance in Requiem for A Dream.

                              Joseph Gordon Levitt is a great actor and IMO will probably be the strongest part of the film.

                                Gordon-Levitt is awesome, I just doubt his ability to convince me he's evil. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

                                I still think Scary Movie, Wayans Bros., and yes, the 6th Man, when I see Marlon Wayans.
