I'm surprised you went to watch! I haven't.
Didn't figure it would be worth the price of the ticket... contemplated renting it out in future when I've got the feeling for a very bad movie.
My responses are in bold!
I'm surprised they even took American money to allow anyone to watch this crap. Would have been more in tune with the spirit of this sad excuse for a film if they told everyone to go to the bank, change it to Euros, and then come back to buy the ticket.

wel i kinda liked it i went in with an attitude of dont take this to serious, just sit back and enjoy, and i did
+ this movie was called rise of the cobra, so offcourse they aint "operational" yet, so i think many charachters will come in thr second movie.
and as for the movie "not being american" enough, well i like the USA i really do. but you guys need to stop about that. Alot of american movies have accredited alot of stuff to the americans while it was foreign, so i think just for one movie now that has an "international team" but still mostly americans you dont get to complain about it. (dont want to piss anybody off with this, but its the truth)

No, that's the problem.
It claims to be the beginning but it is missing THE FOUNDING MEMBERS of GI Joe. And a lot of minor characters who came later on were in it.
Mike, the problem is that GI Joe IS American.
I have no problem if they created something new and it was international. No problem at all whatsoever. Rainbow Six was a novel which became a very successful video game series which was a huge departure from Tom Clancy's very America-centric tradition and was extremely international from the get go, but it was new, it was meant to be that way, and we LIKED it that way.
But this is NOT what you do to GI Joe.
Save yourself the time and the money:

G.I. Joe isn't international for a reason. It's an American thing.... Rainbow Six is international. G.I. Joe is named after the slang term for every American soldier in WWII.
When I came to America, I grew up watching it, reading the comics, and playing with the toys. Ask a lot of American Service men and women.... G.I. Joe was the reason to enlist.
Also the founding members of G.I. Joe were even mentioned. As for Cobra Commander and Cobra itself. It was alive and kicking before G.I. Joe existed. G.I. Joe was created to combat Cobra.

Tis a shame, another icon from my childhood raped for profit.
"The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental." - John Steinbeck

Ditto. I owe you one, 5.56.
Not liking me will always be your problem. Never mine.

yes i know what you mean and i meant no disrespect. but its just that a lot of European things or Asian things have been Americanized in american movies, while it was fully european or asian. so to me it seems a little blunt to see that as a huge problem because of one movie now being made "international" altough more american. While it went the other way much more than one time.
i hope you understand me i know that my english isnt that understandable at times
