Genuinely liked this more than I’d thought I would. Lot of action, great visuals and Dwayne was on point leading this film, come a long way since Scorpion King. The film had endless clichés but it didn’t enrage me as much as it normally does, my reasoning will be explained later. It has been a while since I’ve seen a good disaster film and this was good. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
“That’s not the first time I landed on second base.” – HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Yep, that’s right feel the burn. Yet again a film with a great trailer, but the film doesn’t measure up. I found the film agonizing to watch sometimes and too quick the rest of the time. The film was too much serious and talk and not enough funny and action. Those are words I never thought I would say about a Michael Bay film, and boy was this a Michael Bay film! Don’t get me wrong this film is funny but it’s a hard watch and I don’t plan on seeing it again, took me 2 nights to finish watching the film. Dwayne Johnson was the best part of this film. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“We snatch him, we grab him, signs a few signature, we give him a protein shake! He dunnit even know what happened! I watched a lot of movies Paul, I know what I’m doing!”
I don’t even know where to begin. You watch the film and you keep shooting from good to bad to what?! The film is good but not great, it has some strong action and visuals but the story is scattered and the acting is as you’d expect. Unlike Fast Five it’s not great and tries to bring a smart script but ends up messy and just not as simple and focused as the last film. As I said in my trailer review the film looked great and was quite excited to see if the trailer was a glimpse of a great film or a spoiler filled thrill ride. Well that gets explained in the spoiler section. Bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“This code you live by makes you predictable. In our line of work predictable makes you vulnerable. I can reach out and break you any time I want.”
G.I. Joe: Retaliation walks the thin line between awful and entertaining. Its plot, actors and dialogue is awful! However the action, visuals and style are a vast improvement over the first film. Go watch this film walk the tight rope whilst firing big guns. The rock is the best thing in this but his lines are as awful as you’d imagine. The villain is looking pretty cool but for fun I would have loved the Cobra Commanders voice to be just like the cartoons one, if you didn’t see it as a kid do a quick YouTube search because it’s really funny. Anyway enjoy the review because I laughed continuously when watching the film.
Wow that actually looks pretty damn good. This film series has been a weird one to watch, what with it starting okay and then got steadily worse, started picking up again and now this is looking to be better than the rest. I really like that they seem to have been able to bring most of the cast back and with fun new extra that should prove entertaining. What’s interesting to me is how this film is more a different film compared to the rest. It feels more like a great heist film than the street racing of the first installment. I generally don’t care much about cars but friends who do say they have a great selection and some impressive looking stunts. You can clearly see a good mix of both practical and CGI effects used in this film. The fights, the crashes, THE TANK! All look good to me and I am actually pretty excited to see it which I haven’t for any of the others so my fingers are crossed. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on the latest trailer so please comment.
