I'm a fan of the franchise. I watched the cartoon every day after school as a kid, and had every issue of the Marvel comic book. I was looking forward to seeing this movie but I never got a chance to in the theater. I finally rented it on Blu-Ray last night This movie was f*ckin' great. Now, it's not a film, nor does it aspire to be. It's based on a toy and has no fear that it's going to use names like "Storm Shadow," "Roadblock," "Cobra Commander" etc. without being ashamed of them. And I can list its flaws and that would take a huge amount of space, but it was never dull (unlike such "films" like Skyfall) and delivered what fans wanted to see, cheesy or not. I liked the first film well-enough, and appreciated that this was also a sequel as well as alternate take on how a Joe movie could be done. A fun time, indeed.
