We’re still unsure how to feel about GI Joe: Retaliation to be honest.
Personally I thought the first one was pretty damned awful, but there seems to be a lot of cultish love for it now. And this sequel has yet to impress me visually, but it certainly does seem to be a lot of fun and I can’t help feeling a little giddy at the prospect of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Bruce Willis kicking Cobra’s ass, so we’ll reserve judgement until we’ve eaten chocolate and popcorn in the front row. On opening night.
