A to Z Challenge: G is for GI Joe: Retaliation

Movie: GI Joe: Retaliation (2013)

Overall Rating: 1 / 5

General Impression: I am never getting that time back...



Action. Check. A bit of sci fi tech. Check. Explosions. Check. Reduced expectations. Check.

Still disappointed.

Like, words cannot describe the sheer disappointment of having spent time watching this movie.

As I mentioned, my expectations were already reduced when I saw that Channing Tatum, The Rock, and Bruce Willis were starring in this movie. But seriously, it put me to sleep: the plot was predictable, the action was predictable and unrealistic, and the humour wasn't... humourous.

Please, don't make the same mistake I did and waste the 120 odd minutes of your life watching this.


  1. I enjoyed the G.I. Joe films. My favorite part was the actors. Hehe

    1. Ah, well, eye candy doesn't go unwarranted. ;)

  2. I watched it the other day on Netflix. It was enjoyable enough for that, but yeah, definitely glad I skipped out on seeing it in the theater. It was lacking compared to the first film.

    1. I didn't really rate the first one either! I hope this franchise dies... Quickly.

  3. Hello there.
    Two very good actors!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. The first gi joe movie was so much better that this one, but I grew up with the original cartoon series of the 80s and am a purist when it comes to storyline.
