If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I am not a fan of 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.' This trivial confession bears relevance only as a testament to the first trailer for Jon Chu's sequel 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation.' This thing kicks seven hundred different kinds of ass. I mean come on, that sword battle on the face of a mountain? Are you kidding me?! I love the shot of the Cobra flags unfurling over the White House, the techno remix of 'Seven Nation Army' is killer, and hey, no more annoying rubber lips on Snake Eyes? Bonus! They do overplay the Bruce Willis card a bit, but really who can blame them? It's also interesting to note that the trailer features far more of The Rock than it does Channing Tatum, the star of the first film and supposedly this one as well. Is the film more focused on Roadblock than it is on Duke? These and other questions to be answered next summer, for now enjoy the trailer below and tell us what you think.
