This is great ****, man! It definitely needs more killing! Take that Dark Knight! Snake-Eyes knows how to do the ninja! Him and Gatchaman!

Just watched part 1 on Youtube, and I already like the look and the more mature-themed of this G.I. Joe anime. They even got Cobra Cmdr. right. Can't say the same about the movie, unfortunately.

Sneak Peek: GI Joe Resolute Finale on Adult Swim
April 23, 2009



Hasbro's GI Joe Resolute web cartoon is gearing up for its finale that will air this weekend during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

Starting last Friday, two 5-minute GI Joe Resolute segments have debuted at AdultSwim.com every weekday. Kids who grew up watching GI Joe cartoons in the 80s immediately recognize their favorite characters, only in Resolute the bullets are real and absolutely no one is immune from meeting an untimely demise.

Though Electronic Arts has no hand in Resolute, they did pass along a few teaser images from the final 10 minutes that will debut on Cartoon Network this weekend (Saturday night at midnight). Once the complete series completes airing on TV, it will become available in-full at AdultSwim.com.

Once Resolute comes to an end a bigger question begs an answer. Has there been enough interest in Resolute to develop an ongoing adult-targeted GI Joe series to air on Cartoon Network? The potential is there if scribe Warren Ellis had more than an hour to work with. You can help out the cause for an going series by catching up with segments 1-10 at AdultSwim.com.

Click on any image below for a nice high-res version.

I'm glad they've made a more adult version of the series. But they need a strong story if they want to keep it up. And I worry what would happen if little kids watched this show.

I am now all caught up and all I have to say is SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP! GIVES US MORE RESOLUTE!!!!!!!!!

This is just astounding stuff...The Snake Eyes/Stormshadow fight alone is one of THE best moments of geekdom in 2009.

Hasbro...forget Sommers and all that crap, you need to make THIS the G.I.Joe movie if you want to make dumptrucks full of cash.

Finished all 10 webisodes on YT, and holy crap that's the best GI JOE I've EVER seen. The battles are brutal, the deaths are real (
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I do mourn the death of my favorite character, Storm Shadow
), and they pulled no punches. This is the first time they make GI JOE with adult sensibility, and not a toy commercial for young kids. Quite frankly, I don't think we need a movie now since Resolute is what GI JOE should be, and judging from the abdomination that Sommer is cooking up (stupid CC design, laughable robosuits, lame one-liners), I seriously doubt the movie will be any good when it comes out.

Re: G.I. Joe: Resolute

Here's how I feel:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The Pros:

The G.I. Joe team functions like a tactically sound special operations unit. They have a technical support staff, they use the various members of the team with specific areas of expertise on missions regarding those areas instead of just storming enemy bases like regular commandoes, and when facing a major crisis they have simultaneous missions to tackle each aspect of the crisis. Which is kind of how the military would respond to a widespread terrorist attack. I also love how the have Snake Eyes actually fighting like a proper ninja. He slits peoples throats from behind their backs, sets up booby traps, and resorts to head on confrontation when the situation calls for it. In short, his uses guerilla tactics. Which is what real ninjas did.

The Cons:

Cobra. Don't get me wrong. They are a much more menacing and effective organization. But, as characters, they're all really flat and one dimensionally evil. Cobra Commander is no different than his counterpart in the original cartoon: He's a bastard for the sake of being a bastard. It's just, now, he's actually good at it. Personally, I prefer the Cobra Commander of the comics. An emotionally scarred, slightly delusional terrorist leader who organized a terrorist group, not with vague promises of wealth and power, but by an actual philosophy of militant libertarianism. On the same note, Storm Shadow, who in his best interpretations is a well meaning but vengeful man who simply gets caught up with the wrong crowd who manipulate his anger towards more destructive tendencies, is in this a whiny, selfish ******* who hates a guy just because his uncle thought he was slightly better at being a ninja. And Destro is seen with Baroness, acting like you basic sociopathic thug, instead of simply a business associate of Cobra who stayed away from doing hands on dirty work for them when possible. The best villains in the whole thing were Firefly and Zartan, and they had no lines and simply served as generic mercenaries/assassins.

Well, Zartan did have a line, or rather, a monologue he had with Scarlette like a typical villain who'd rather talk about how great he is instead of shooting the protagonist (parodied by Austin Powers). He was great early on, but unfortunately he was reduced to a stupid villain afterward.

Actually, Storm Shadow's hatred is understandable. By teaching Snake Eyes that final step, it essentially meant his uncle saw the new guy as his legacy and heir. Snake Eyes would have taken the guy's place as the master of the clan after he died. All of this used to be uncontestedly Storm Shadow's so it's no surprised he's a little sore about it. This was further worsened when he confronted his uncle and the guy basically told him point blank that Snake Eyes would be the sole inheritor of his secrets and Storm Shadow would not get anything. Should that be enough reason to kill? Probably not but it's probably enough motivation. People have done crazy things over pride, jealousy and feelings of betrayal.

So when they're seen killing people they're cool, but when they talk they're back to being stupid characters?

Villains in movies always like to talk for minutes before they kill the hero, and during their self-indulgence they are usually taken down by someone who saved the day. Zartan became such a villain in Resolute when he did the same to Scarlette and thus gave Duke an opening to save the dame.

As cool and great as this mini series is, I don't want this to bec ome an ongoing "adult" series aimed squarely at adults on ADULT SWIM. However, I would like to see a SLIGHTLY toned down TV-PG rated middle ongoing G.I. JOE series that is both suitable for and appealing to both kids and adults on CARTOON NETWORK. In other words, I want to see an all ages G.I. JOE cartoon that is done in a similar way as the CGI CLONE WARS series is currently being done.

Well this probably won't be a series. It looks like it was basically written as a one off special that they divided up into a bunch of parts.

Its not like how Star Wars clone wars started.

I think a better tone to go for is something like WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN which is made appropriate for kids but its not . . . dumb. And its quite dark and grim at times.

That would be a better tone since Clone Wars stinks up the joint quite often and Asoka is like nails on a chalkboard.
