G. I. Joe in town

‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’ latest American live-action movie will be released at the Majestic cinema Colombo from October 16.

Based on the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy franchise, the movie is directed by ‘The Mummy’ and “The Mummy Returns” famed Stephen Sommers and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Starring Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Byung Hun Lee, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park and Saïd Taghmaoui the story follows two American soldiers, Duke and Ripcord, who join the G.I. Joe Team after being attacked by Cobra troops.

In the film, a shady weapons dealer named James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston), who becomes a horrible rendered Destro, sells four warheads containing a new nanotechnology-based weapon that can destroy anything the owner wants destroyed to NATO.

NATO has the U.S. Army, a bunch of nobodies led by Duke (The Dancing Dude) and Ripcord (The Lesser Wayans Brother), deliver their new toys.

Whilst en route, the convoy gets ambushed by a bunch of super-soldiers and the Baroness (the amazingly hot Sienna Miller… equipped with a skin tight, leather body suit and a push up bra).

Duke and Ripcord basically watch their buddies get slaughtered and then run around to kill time until they are eventually saved by a mysterious group of elite soldiers… Scarlett (Rachel Nichols), Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and Snake Eyes (Ray Park). After being saved, Duke and Ripcord get taken to a place called “The Pit” and meet a guy named General Hawk (Dennis Quaid, who half-assess his performance).

Hawk tells Duke and Ripcord that the team that saved them are called G.I. Joe, makes them members of the team, tells them that “knowing is half the battle” and says that they have to prevent NATO’s warheads from getting into the wrong hands… which they fail to do.

After failing, the Joes make it their duty to redeem themselves by stopping McCullen and his crew of evil doers from destroying anything else.
