G.I. Joe Movie Trailer Proves this Movie Will Suck

Paramount just released a new movie trailer for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra this week, but thankfully I was spared a viewing while at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I don’t think I could have handled both this trailer and that movie; adamantium bullets may have been necessary.

G.I. Joe is from Stephen Sommers, the guy behind The Mummy as Paramount wants to make perfectly clear. Unfortunately, Sommers is also responsible for The Mummy Returns, which was horrific – and not in a good way. G.I. Joe looks more along the lines of the latter film, as it’s full of cheesy special effects, awkward action and crappy acting. It’s hard to tell whether this film will be a flop due to its massive brand awareness, but it could easily be this year’s Speed Racer.

Watch the new G.I. Joe movie trailer below and let me know whether you agree:

    Erik, you are out for this one in a bad way! I tend to agree with your worries, but I did enjoy Speed Racer.

  • We can’t agree on them all, but if this one is good, I will be utterly shocked.

  • Other than Snake Eyes and the Baroness, they forgot to include anything that made GI Joe what it was.

    I cannot for the life of me understand why Hollywood always tries to reinvent the source material. Fail.

    GI Joes don’t look military at all.

    Destro is not built, doesn’t have a cool accent.
    Zartan looks completely different.
    Storm Shadow unmasked and with a gun. Not cool.
    No Firefly. Not cool. He should’ve been in this one more than Storm Shadow, who could have been hired after Cobra was done “rising”.

    These are complaints even before you get to the crappy story and script.

  • Good comment, Bruce. I don’t remember much about G.I. Joe from my childhood, but this looks awful.
