The visual effects are superb.
I enjoyed the fighting scenes to the hilt.
But the Japanese mountain scenery is all fake.
It looks like a Chinese hideout on the cliff.
And the sounds of the Japanese sword fighting are also fake.
Besides, the storyline seems ridiculous.
Even a good filmmaker could NOT make a good movie from such a bad script.

One of the worst films of all time period.I knew it was bad but not this bad.Extremely cartoon like action,a tiny bit of racism,and very trivial storytelling is the order of the day here period.An extremely bad look for Dwayne Johnson as well as Bruce Willis's career period.I wonder how the most extremely hardcore fans of G.I. Joe (especially you SUCKERS that spent $ to see this) really feel about this live action series of totally unnecessary films??? Do not make another installment of this pro-military recruitment program for the USA Military to get as many youth killed as possible for the Military Industrial Complex,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A movie with U.S. combat forces that do not wear helmets. This movie does not depict reality.

The cliff hanging, zip lining, ninja fighting sequence was AWESOME! The prison break part was great too. But OMG half naked Storm Shadow is SOOO HOT!

This achieves the near impossible: it's even dumber than the first one. A monumental waste of two hours with heroes on the run, the villains playing the usual world domination and look at what we're about to do megalomania card, and endless stupidity. Willis, Stevenson, and Pryce are wasted, Vosloo only turns up briefly, Johnson is just playing himself, and the remainder of the cast come across as either eye candy or ciphers. The one wise move from the producers? Killing off Channing Tatum's character early. Tatum is one of the worst actors in the profession today, with no hint that there's anything remotely resembling thought going on between his ears. Treat this disaster as if it's the Ebola virus.

oh please, this movie is under rated. After reading many negative reviews I was not prepared to be actually entertained--except I was. This movie is actually not bad. Yes, it could have been better in terms of a more wholesome and less predictable plot. YET it delivered in action which is what we were wanting right? one of the disappointments was that Tatum was no where. { But Mr. Dwyane made up for that}

Worst than the first one and that's saying a lot.

Roadblock: Let's move! The world ain't saving itself!

Roadblock: I came here when I was fourteen, with a life expectancy of thirteen. I was bounced around from home to home until this... became my home. Guys would line up outside that door to fight me. They whooped my skinny ass so much I started to enjoy it. Until one winter, I grew eight inches, gained sixty pounds, punched a guy so hard he couldn't move his arm to tap out. Then when the Joes came recruiting to the hood, I'd already beaten down half of it. I became a Joe to serve. In the field. So if we're fighting uphill, we take the hill.
