Wacko-basket dwelling Talk Show host Glenn Beck has a little rant about G.I. Joe not "being American enough".

Glenn Beck crazy talk focusing on G.I. Joe


Apparently, it looking like a huge mess doesn't even cross his mind.

I have never been someone who disses a movie for altering the original book or comic concept because it works better on film, but EVERYTHING changed in this film was for the worse.
I was skeptical going into this when I saw it at the theater. What I can say is that I've never seen a movie quite like that. That's a good thing. However, it was not what I wanted or ever even expected from a G.I. Joe live action movie. Maybe this should've been titled Action Man because it sure as hell wasn't G.I. Joe except in name only. I still need to see it on DVD but... I'm already thinking G.I. Joe deserves a more thought out remake.

It's not that. Why in the blue-hell change a white character to a black character when you have a full arsenal of black joes waiting in the wings? Stalker? Roadblock? Doc? Alpine?

Every characters background and motives were lacking.

The flashback was really oddly placed too, wasn't it? Or is it just me? Forget Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow, the entire Snake Eyes story was eliminated and that's the story that pretty much makes G.I. Joe - G.I. Joe. I mean, the entire COBRA organization is tied to HIS time in Vietnam with Storm Shadow and Stalker, further reason for Wayans to be Stalker and not Ripcord. I really didn't give a crap about the whole Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow thing and I thought the fight really failed to meet expectations. If they were hoping for Snake Eyes to be the Wolverine and get a spin-off they really better re-think that. I, at least, was intrigued by Wolverine and the Origins movie. I would have zero interest in a Snake Eyes movie at this point.

Again, the G.I. Joe/Cobra origins story is pretty much centered on Snake Eyes. He killed Baroness' brother in Vietnam by mistake, got tried in a military court of law with Destro as his defense attorney. Once discharged, his family is killed by Cobra Commander's brother in a car crash. HOW CAN THAT BE ELIMINATED AND STILL BE G.I. JOE!!!

From the androgynous casting choices, to the college co-ed vibe I got with Scarlett and Ripcord, I think Duke was probably the most realistic casting choice.
A military unit the caliber of G.I. Joe is going to be cocky. It wasn't that they were unmilitarylike that ruined this, it's that there was nothing military about this to even things out. It was like Terminator: Salvation meets American Pie.

There were so many cool concepts they could have done for a GI Joe movie. From making it feel realistic instead of cartoony sci-fi, to emphasizing the recruitment of the best Green Berets, Navy Seals, etc to be members of GI Joe. And most important, making the bad guys much cooler!
Oh, there were ALOT better way to go. The best being the only way to go in my opinion. I'm not revealing it though because I know it's correct, so why let it be trashed?

A laughable attempt from a franchise property with a much bigger budget than its screenplay deserves.
Not as bad as Scooby-Doo, but little to no better than Fantastic Four.

Somehow I get the feeling that the fans would not have been terribly happy if any of the characters you mentioned were re-imagined as wisecracking sidekicks played by Marlon Wayans. They picked Ripcord because he is a minor character who fans would not miss if they reimagined him. The only reason Ripcord would have appeared in the movie at all would be because they wanted a blank canvas to draw on, and that's exactly what they did.

SHH! Re: The Negative Reaction Thread

I am upset because of the...
Poor script
Poor casting
Not staying true to the source material

All of the above.
Since the source material is a way to sell toys, I don't really know I should feel about it. It did suck tho, at least the bootleg I got.
EVen the first Transformers had glimpses of original ides from the old school stuff. Joe didn't have any of that that I saw.

I didn´t know G.I. Joe before the film, i watched it and it was horrible, then i saw the source material, the cartoons and the comics, especially the comics and they were much better than the film, the film should have been less futuristic, more military but still with some cool advanced technology
