Ah okay...surprisingly that's the only other source that says that. I believe it's mentioned in the coffee table book her nationality but it's "classified".

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

I saw this when it was in the theaters, mainly because a friend visiting from DC wanted to see it. Stupidly, I took him to one of the nicer, Hollywood theaters in town so we wound up paying a lot for tickets. Oh well. The movie was fine in the 'dumb action flick' sort of way, but the Alan Silvestri score elevates it a little in my opinion ... but beyond that, meh.

While I disagree with Admiral Young's take on Dennis Quaid (it felt like he was reading off cue cards and deliberately trying to be cheesy), I am in total agreement that Channing Tatum was just God-awful as Duke.

Good question. That's what you get though when you make the decision to have the Joes be an international squad.
