There really isn’t anything in this trailer that makes us think Stephen Sommers G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is going to be anything more than goofy, mindless summer entertainment. Fine, but it doesn’t even look like it’s attempting to rise out of the gutter for something more meaty.
Aside from maybe a few good fight scenes, how can this rise above or be compared to the childhood destroying G.I. Joe: Resolute from Warren Ellis and Cartoon Network?
