“The greatest American Heroes are back”* and they’ve been set up to take the fall for a terrible crime they didn’t commit. Now, the G.I. Joes must once again face their mortal enemy, Cobra, as well as dangerous new threats operating within the government. When all else fails, one option remains: Retaliation. Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) leads a new team (including Bruce Willis) on this explosive adventure that critics are calling "unlike any action movie you've ever seen. A thrilling ride that leaves you wanting more!"**

For everyone who rolled their eyes even as they were secretly digging 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra as a guilty pleasure (not to mention giving it big box-office clout), this rejiggered sequel will probably prove irresistible. Hasbro and Hollywood have successfully created a franchise based on toy action figures that were introduced almost 50 years ago, now featuring all the guns, glory, and apocalyptic politics of the modern age. Along with that come the heights of preposterous circumstances and childish fantasy that any $200-plus million action movie requires. The video game quality and action figure/comic book childishness notwithstanding, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is anything but childlike with its incalculable body count, physical carnage, and extreme fetishisation of violence and techno armaments. Feeling cocky from their vanquishing the evil Cobra organisation in the first movie, the Joes are all the more ready to save the world from itself, making clandestine forays into North Korea and Pakistan with deadly precision. (The dizzying assault on a Pakistani weapons base is genuinely spectacular.) What they don't know is that Cobra has been lying in wait, and that the free world's Commander in Chief (Jonathan Pryce, having a fine time) is being impersonated by the nefarious Cobra operative Zartan (Arnold Vosloo). In the guise of a benevolent leader seeking world nuclear disarmament, "President" Zartan discredits and wipes out all but three of the Joe force. Fortunately Dwayne Johnson is among them, and every moviegoer knows he's pretty much an army of one. The script is so whiz-bang fast and full of impossibly extravagant CGI-enhanced eye-poppery that any synopsis would be akin to, well, 10-year-olds smashing three-inch action figures into each other and making up a narrative to go along with their guttural sound effects. And isn't that a pretty good description of escapism? Mention must be made of an incredible sustained set piece staged on sheer Himalayan cliffs where sword-wielding ninjas soar on ropes in an elaborate choreography that is as inventive as it is thrilling. The finale explodes at historic Fort Sumter, of all places, where the faceless Cobra Commander showdowns with the revivified Joes during "The President's" bogus disarmament summit. The cast is adequate in portraying good or bad real-life action figures with funny names and unbreakable bodies. Bruce Willis seems very happy chomping in to a glorified cameo as the retired Joe commander. Though the Joes carry the day and glory can be claimed, it should be noted that a sequel is teed up perfectly, especially in light of the fact that Cobra pretty much succeeds in its world-domination plan by obliterating the whole of London and its eight million inhabitants. It is the most extreme of money shots, rendered with loving detail; but don't worry, kids, it's only a movie. --Ted Fry

the discredited unit are slaughtered......however a handful survive the
attack.......the survivors have a score to settle.
'Cobra' want World-domination, only the surviving G.I. team with a little
help from their 'Martial-art' associates including 'Snake Eyes' and 'Storm
Shadow' have a chance of stopping the cleverly crafted plot.
'Dwayne Johnson' ( the Rock ) again showing his prowess as an action-hero
along with all-time favourite 'Bruce Willis' along for the ride.
with terrific fire-fights and impressive Martial-Art sequences on board
giving viewers a fast moving and electrifying action movie to enjoy.
the film is 'escapism' on a grand-scale.......so much better than the
first offering in my view..........thoroughly entertaining.
I did enjoy Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis' roles immensely and found them very funny and entertaining.
I recommend this film to fans of action and adventure, martial arts, humour and G.I Joe fans.
A great watch.
