15 Days of GI Joe-Day 10!!!

THE REVIEWS ARE IN!!!.....and they're pretty good!! Reviews have started to appear all over the web for GI Joe Retaliation. No, I didn't get to see it early, my review should be coming sometime on Friday, but positive word of mouth is spreading like wildfire. Here's a few link to some reviews that you can read for yourself, but be warned, almost all of them contains BIG ASS SPOILERS!!!

The Huffington Post

Ain't It Cool


Latino Review

But, perhaps the most important review appeared a couple days ago:

"I liked RETALIATION a lot. Vast improvement over ROC. Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow are much more up front, and the whole thing is a lot more character-driven. Not only is there no sinking ice, but the big finale involves physical action with people rather than choreography of CGI vehicles. The Rock is perfect as Roadblock, and Bruce Willis's take on Joe Colton is brill (he has some of the best lines.) There's no sign of Scarlett, but the actress who plays Lady Jaye is quite good. Jinx is amazing. Flint is kind of meh. Overall, the direction is terrific and crisp. I can tell what is going on all the time, and everything LOOKS great. Ninja fight sequence in the mountains is amazing, in that you never lose track of what is happening, and there's a ton of fast visual input. Is there stuff I didn't like? That would be quibbling. The positive outweighs the negative here. And I walked out feeling that the characters had been treated with respect."

-That review came from The Godfather of GI Joe, Larry Hama
As if I needed another reason to be really excited for this movie.
