Movie Review: G.I. Joe: Retaliation (3D)

The Cobras have cloned the US Prez, brought the top 6 countries in the world (UK, France, North Korea, China, India and Israel!) to the brink of nuclear war, managed to wipe out their nuclear arsenal in a matter of minutes, and then armed and deployed the deadly space-based Zeus weapons to obliterate them from the face of the earth.

The only thing that stands between them and their deadly plan to rule the world - the G.I. Joes. While most of the G.I. Joes have been wiped out in a strike authorized by the "Prez", three have survived, and they are out for revenge.

Should you watch the movie? Hmmm, let me see. The story is predictable and we've seen variations of the theme over and over again. The action is mediocre, the SFX not worthy of mention.

Except for one amazing scene in the mountains - the execution is breathless and innovative, a sequence that has no parallels in any movie I have seen so far! Just for that, the movie deserves a watch.
