Re: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Grading & Discussion

I just got back from the movie theater. I must admit, it was better than I expected.

I don't think it should be compared to any of the X-Men films. If any thing, the film sort of parallels James Bond and Star Wars in a lot of ways--the good-versus-evil theme, the array of weapons and technology used in the battles.

The movie is fast-paced and action-packed with teeth-gritting, butt-tensing action sequences. Indeed it's one of the better summer action blockbusters.

Rating: B
