Are you a comic fan? Are you an action freak? Well, then voila! I'm sure you're a fan of G.I. Joes then. The origin of these 'action figures' can be traced from the comic strip that used to be the buzz of the town back in 1980s. I remember every kid was crazy about the G.I. Joes.
Also the cartoon series based on the adventures of G.I. Joes was quite a fad that time around. Many would still find the theme song quite appealing.
'G.I. Joe is the code name for America's daring, highly trained special mission force. Its purpose: to defend human freedom against Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world.'
Does it ring a bell? If not, here's what you can watch to recall it.
It was like an anthem back then.
And to revive that spirit and the passion for the Joes, you can consider watching 'G.I. Joe Retaliation'. The plus point is the amazing cast that is the part of this movie. In fact, the brownie point that many would consider giving to this one over 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' is due to the presence of Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock.
The regular fans would know that the usual tension in this comic streak is between G.I. Joes and Cobra. 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' was all about that tussle while in 'G.I. Joe Retaliation', they are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra...but they are also facing the tension internally. The main USP of the movie is to see how Zartan, the master of make-up and disguise, tries to weaken the G.I. Joes.
Other than the amazing action and everything, this movie is known for its amazing dialogues. Don't forget to notice the one where Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) who plays Roadblock in the movie says- 'Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?' As a wrestler, Dwayne Johnson is known for this line.
