Random Review: G. I. Joe the Movie

I just got back from finally seeing the G.I. Joe movie *coughChristopherEcclestoncough* and here is my review:

The short version:
G.I. Joe is a nice wedge of cheese with a dash of melodrama.

The slightly longer version:
It was enjoyable to watch, but I might have enjoyed it a bit more if I could have been able to make comments out loud as I watched. The guy who played Duke (Channing Tatum) took his role very seriously. Good on him. The kids who played young Snake Eyes (Leo Howard) and young Stormshadow (Brandon Soo Hoo) are darn good martial artists. Dang. There was a bit of over the top acting…which really did seem called for. Jonathan Pryce played the President of the US of A. His American accent wasn’t that bad, but I was forced to wonder if he had ever even considered that he might play that role at some point. Brenden Fraser was in the film for a whole couple of minutes. I still adore him.

So…there you are.
