If you are into fast paced blow s**t up action movies, this movie is for you! If you are into smexy military men and women, this movie is also for you! G.I. Joe:Retaliation has it all: a great balance of action, humor, touchy feely, and special effects. The only complaint I have is during some of the action scenes the camera shots were switching so fast I couldn’t keep up with what was going on and it could possibly send you into a seizure if you aren't careful.

I wanted to pull for the bad guys just as much as the good because everyone was bad ass in the good way. I haven’t read any of the G.I. Joe comics, but since it's a reboot of the franchise there are some twists I don’t want to giveaway for longtime fans. I thought Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum’s comedic chemistry was a little forced, but the rest of the cast worked together well.

I thought the special effects were done well and if they weren't I didn't notice because I was caught up in the action and story, so who cares! Is this just like Transformers with live people instead of robots? Hell yeah! This is one I will want to own.

And sorry about that London, but someone had to be an example…

This is for everyone 
There were so many great humorous lines I don’t know which one to pick for my rating… I think I will go with:

4.5 “the quicker blower upper” Sheep

Katie's Point of View 

Pretty much everything Sharon just touched on was dead-on. Action was killer good, even the super slow-mo parts, and if the shaky camera had slowed down a bit I would have enjoyed these moments more. 

Ninjas are always amazing and if your name is Snake Eyes, then baby, get ready for some Katie lovein! Man is a dream boat setting sails for the sea of love and always has been. 

Some cheesy dialog moments all around, but those were to be expected.  A few major plot inconsistencies left me frustrated, adding a few extra minutes of scenes here and there would have put this one over the top. 

Overall, if you love action for the sake of action and cool gadgets then this one is for you. Yo, Joe! 

Getting 4 'I only have eyes for Snake Eyes' Sheep 


  1. I liked the first one and since it's a movie I can watch with hubby, we'll probably be watching this one as well.

  2. Thanks for the double review --- I really enjoy hearing from both of you. Looking forward to watching this movie!
