If your reading this then you might just have made a lucky escape, why the drama you ask it's just this don't buy this version of the movie. In all honesty you need to get the Blue-ray extended addition, "Why?" because this version is a chopped up or chopped out hatchet job. I was lucky enough to see the Extended version first at my friends house not knowing that what it was, when I bought this one I was like "WTF! Where's all the rest of the movie and the good bits!?!"

Trust me when I say it's well worth the few extra shekels. Directors cuts are usually always better.

This version is only worth 3 stars, the extended version gives it the full 5 stars in my opinion.
A shame they don't have a extended version on regular DvD but meh you can't have everything.

As for the movie itself, if you liked GI Joe as a kid you'll love this movie, if you love action movies then you'll love this, it takes the mistakes made by the first one and fixes them all very nicely.
I'm now looking forward to the next one, if they keep it in the same vein and style.

Love this film; great special effects and fight scenes a bit of humour and buckets of ninjas!
I've been into G.I. Joe since I was a kid and it was called "Action Force" in the UK and the films really build on the nostalgia with a healthy dose of action movie goodness.
Definitely succeeds on its own terms though don't expect much in the way of deep insight or character development; that said it's a quality cast who really commit to the film and is beautifully put together.

Four ACTION-PACKED Stars! The 2nd edition of the G.I. Joe series of movies, following "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" is full of action, adventure, and GREAT special effects starring the G.I. Joe Elite Team of "Duke", "Road Block", "Lady Jaye", "Flint", "Snake Eyes", "Mouse", "Ship Wreck", and others, taking place after the Nanomite War. Terrorist leader "Cobra Commander" and "Destro" are already in captivity; "Storm Shadow" and "Zartan" are still at large. The story begins with the "Joe's" involved in a rescue at the North-South Korea DMZ and later during another mission they are ambushed, which sets the stage for an international conspiracy. The rest of the story is pure enjoyable, entertaining Sci-Fi fun, improbable scenarios, plot holes, lots of fights and explosions, while keeping the audience guessing who is on which side.

But it also features one of the most marvelous swashbuckling ninja fight sequences at the 55 minute point at a mountain stronghold, away from the main `Joe' group, featuring amazing CGI, `wire' fu, great fight and stunt coordination, and breathtaking matte landscapes that rival the likes of the Matrix Reloaded and is definitely worth the price of admission for this 7 minute sequence alone. I have watched that sequence alone a dozen times.

Great action, adventure fun in an expensive-looking movie. Starring Duane "The Rock" Johnson, Channing Tatum, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-Hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, Luke Bracey, and Arnold Vesloo, with an extended cameo from Bruce Willis, it brought in $375 Million at the box office: with the preceding film bringing in $300M. Directed by Jon M. Chu. Four ENJOYABLE SCI-FI Stars! (Amazon Prime Video; Time-1:50)

This is a stunning,visual feast of wall to wall action.Vastly superior to the first film and highly engaging.
I saw this in 3D and it was easily one of the best 3D films I had seen.
If you like action movies with great set-pieces,then this is for you.Easily one of Dwayne Johnsons best.

WARNING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.

Positive.
1)Extended cut adds 17 minutes of unseen back into the movie & ups the ante in the action department which are a little more violent than it's theatrical cut.
2)Ray Park as Snake Eyes always good..
3)Dwayne Johnson ups the ante & firepower in this movie as Roadblock.

Negative.
1)Non returners Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols,Joseph Gordon-Lovett,Christopher Eccleston, Dennis Quaid, Marlon Wayans, Why?
2)Channing Tatums extended cameo & apparent pointless death messes up the plot of the original somewhat.
3)Bruce Willis phoning in his performances again.

Blu Ray Info.
Running time 123 minutes approx, Deleted scenes,G.I.Joe declassified documentary.

Trivia.
1)Paramount stated that most of the new cast in this sequel is they wanted to do a mini reboot but not alienate fan's of the original, I say they didn't succed very well.
2)Rumours of Channing Tatums character demise maybe a decoy as it's rumoured he is returning in the third G.I.Joe movie.
3)Jon Chu has hinted he wants Channing Tatum in his Masters of the Universe reboot as He-Man Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!
4)Destro was writen out of the sequel as Christopher Eccleston refused to play the character again, No surprise there then, He never baths in the same water twice apparently.
5)Cobra Commander was not played by Joseph Gordon-Lovett this time around & is played by Luke Bracey.
6)Adrianne Palicki filmed a pilot for a potential Wonder Woman tv series as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman but it was never picked up as a series.

Review.
As sequels go it's not the best I've seen nor the worst & if i was reviewing this on it's theatrical cut it would get a 2*star rating.
