After watching G.I. Joe: Retaliation i still wondered why the film was delayed from its original release date of June 2012 to March 2013.It definitely wasnt delayed to add some rousing content,or to add more scenes featuring the very popular Channing Tatum.It seems more likely the delay was due to the fact that the studios Paramount and MGM knew they had a mediocre product on their hands,and that it wouldnt be able to compete with The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man.
GIJR isnt a complete miss fire,there are some great action sequences,the mountain top battle featuring Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and his apprentice Jinx (Elodie Yung) is the stand out.Jonathan Pryce has some great one liners.
All of the other characters are bland Flint(D.J Cotrona) looks bored and Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki)is fun to look at but there is no spark to her character,watered down versions of the popular
characters from the animated series and comic books.
Scale of 1-10 a 6½ Wait for the DVD
