Read before you buy - for your enjoyments sake!
on 17 August 2013
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.
