G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Plot / Synopsis

Little has been revealed about the plot other than that it will feature the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow and Firefly. Zartan (who is last seen in disguise as the President of the United States) has now got the world leaders all under his thumb, warheads headed towards innocent populaces, and some new heavies on the payroll to keep G.I. Joe at bay.

Who would ever thought that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra will have a sequel? Well sarcasm aside, the sequel will be released on Summer 2012 in the US. It is flashy, expensive, and over the top, this is really a Hollywood film adaptation of the beloved Hasbro toy line and pop culture icon. The only question is will you like it?

What has not been said? It is a Hollywood movie adaptation of the popular toy franchise and later comics and television cartoons, if you have seen the first one, well it is that but with a seemingly darker take, but still over the top. Most critics and avid fans of the classic G.I. Joe gave the first film mostly negative reviews, but that didn't stopped the Studios in continuing with this re-imagination of Hasbro's famous toy franchise. Hopefully the inclusion of Bruce Willis and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson could give the film more depth and seriousness to it. hopefully it has better writing and plot that goes along with two big names in action.
