G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Rated PG-13 118 minutes 2009

On the plus side, G.I. Joe is much better than the latest Transformers movie. On the negative side, it still isn’t very good. Master thespian Channing Tatum plays a special-ops soldier who finds out about the elite G.I. Joe force and teams with them to fight an evil weapons manufacturer (Christopher Eccleston) and his nasty doctor sidekick. The bad guys have devised a way to destroy cities with monster microbes that can eat anything, and it’s up to G.I. Joe (well, the elite unit that is G.I. Joe) to stop them. Sienna Miller gets to play bad and run around in tight-fitting black outfits, while Dennis Quaid croaks a lot during his minimal screen time. Marlon Wayans is OK comic relief as Tatum’s sidekick. Some of the action scenes pop, but the movie is occasionally derailed by shitty CGI. Overall, you could do worse, I guess.
