G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA premieres in theaters today

I'm debating whether or not I want to see this movie.

So, I'm gonna do something that I can't recall ever doing with this blog before. If you've seen G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, feel free to post a comment with your thoughts about it and whether you recommend seeing it now or waiting to watch it when it comes out on DVD (or even never at all).

If there's enough good word about it, I'll try to catch it this weekend.

Saw it today. BETTER than Transformers 2. It's not the old cartoon or comic but it's a great summer popcorn action movie.

I am taking much the same tact with this film as you are, and the people I know that have seen it have encouraged me that it is definitely NOT worth it. One gave it 2 of 5 stars and my own father said it was the one of the hokiest 'blockbuster' pictures he'd seen in a long time.

I watched it on friday. It's FUN, but sidesteps everything that would have made it a good movie. The acting is so-so at best, the CGI is HORRIBLE, the story may as well not exist, and I laughed out loud exactly 4 times. But, none of that stopped it from being an entertaining use of 2 hours. I'd probably wait for DVD though.
