The last GI JOE live action film was one of those adaptations that tried its darnedest to rape our childhood memories and for many it succeeded. This years sequel looks to fix some of that (mostly) with cooler gadgets and smarter action scenes…well, that’s at least a start.
The film is being directed by FAST FIVE director John Chu and this trailer finally shows some of his signature over the top action and mayhem. This finally feels like something my 12 year old self might have chomped at the bit to watch.
The film loses some of the cast from the last film, retains others, and adds new ones including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Bruce Willis, and the RZA?!
