Let’s forget this has anything to do with the 80s GI Joe of our childhood and just admit that this looks like a pretty awesome action movie. Okay, the “Delta” suits are whack, but they sort of make up for it with heat-seeking missiles coming out of cars, destroying the Eiffel Tower, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, and people jumping through trains. Look at the YouTube still! It’s an explosion! That’s an action movie.
It comes out on my birthday (August 7) so instead of my traditional Virgin Joey Juice Frozen Margarita at Outback Steakhouse, maybe I’ll go see GI Joe.
