I watched the movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra last night. I can only say, it was probably the second best movie I have seen this year.
The acting was good, the story was very good, the special effects were pretty good. I believe anyone who enjoyed watching the series as a kid will appreciate this movie along with all the little bits thrown in from the series, but you do not have had to seen anything about G.I. Joe before to enjoy this film. Everything was explained well enough for anyone to know the story.
Overall, I have to say that I recommend this to anyone that likes a good story or a good action movie or just a G.I. Joe fan.
