G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer
From the director of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never
I wonder why that little nugget of truth didn’t make its way into the trailer...

Many of you hated G.I. Joe back in 2009. And many of you were wrong.
To prove how wrong you were, The Rock has a word or two to say on the matter, courtesy of Machinma...



Well, on reflection, maybe it’s not words, but bullets, swords and explosions he employs as his language of choice here. Yet his message is quite blatant.

Now, although it would be wholly impossible for a film entitled G.I. Joe: Retaliation to completely shrug off its naff, tacky stigma, from the looks of this early trailer, director Jon Chu and co are certainly giving it the old college try.
Admittedly the surprise appearance of Bruce Willis toward the end goes a ways to cement a more respectable approach.

But personally, naff don’t bother me. The appeal of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (and yes, I can read, I know how ridiculous that sounds) was that it was packed with action, much of it bright, vibrant, and for lack of a superior descriptor, good.

With cliff-side sword fights, missile laden set pieces and, you know, the Rock being his usual magnetic self, Retaliation might yet change some minds on the worth of this brand.

And if nothing else, it’s good to see Ray Parks (Darth Maul) get some work.
