G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, whose previous collaboration was the worldwide blockbuster “Transformers,” join forces with Spyglass Entertainment for another extraordinary action-adventure “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos. “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” is directed by Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy,” “The Mummy Returns”).
This movie has almost non-stop violence. Included in the mix are people set on fire, explosions, people shot and blasted, stabbings, bloodied bodies, and…well, you get the idea. Although there are a few twists in the story which are interesting, this film is not family-friendly at all, especially with the strong language that is included.
This is not the G.I. Joe some fans might have expected. It is a CGI showcase, with lots of death, betrayal, and darkness. We unfortunately cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this violent movie.
