The official G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer video has finally been released by Paramount and it comes with a big shock. Unlike the previous G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie back in 2009, this action-packed, explosive sequel looks like it might just be surprisingly awesome.
Since the original launch of the toy line way back in 1964, little boys and girls have imagined the patriotic adventures of G.I. Joe. Many of us grew up with G.I. Joe at the height of the brand’s popularity in the 1980’s when the toys were translated to animated characters for TV. Fans of G.I. Joe waited impatiently for decades to finally see the action figures brought to live action life on the big screen.
Unfortunately, many fans ended up a bit disappointed with the 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie directed by Stephen Sommers. Even before the movie hit theaters, fans were already strongly criticizing leaked drafts of the script. Although G.I. Joe comic book writer Larry Hama was brought on as a creative consultant for rewrites, the film still received lackluster, negative reviews from fans and critics.
