The other day I went to see “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra“, which turned out to be the silliest movie I’ve watched in a while. Numerous special effects could feel the holes in the story and poor acting. And further down the road, all those special effects became nothing else but annoying. Things were flying back and forward, exploding, and flying more, without any reference to what is actually going on. Sometime it was even impossible to tell where the action is taking place – in space, high in the air, just above the ground, or under water.
On top of that, the dialogues were really awkward and unnatural with extreme levels of naivety. There was a chance for violence to redeem the film, but PG-13 cut all those changes.
Overall, the film is quite empty and visually tiring. 2 stars.
