The Joes reteam to prevent Cobra from achieving total world domination in this sequel that picks up shortly after the events of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The Nanomite threat has been neutralized, and the U.S. government has imprisoned Cobra Commander and Destro in an inescapable subterranean prison. When the leader of Pakistan is assassinated, the U.S. president (Jonathan Pryce) calls on the Joes to secure Pakistan's nuclear warheads before they fall into enemy hands. In the wake of successfully completing their mission, however, the Joes are decimated in a devastating surprise attack. When the smoke clears, Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki), and Flint (D.J. Cotrona) are the sole survivors. They're convinced that something is amiss in the White House, and as Lady Jaye theorizes that an imposter is pretending to be the commander in chief, bad guys Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) and Firefly (Ray Stevenson) team up to break Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey) out of prison. Later, as Storm Shadow retreats into the mountains to recover from burns incurred in the extraction, Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Jinx (Elodie Yung) manage to capture the elusive white ninja, in the process discovering a shocking secret about his past and learning that Zartan (Arnold Vosloo), posing as the president, has called an international summit to discuss nuclear disarmament in order to bring the leaders of the world to their knees before the diabolical Cobra Commander. Now, as Cobra holds the entire globe hostage with a revolutionary new weapon placed on satellites orbiting the planet, it's up to the Joes and a trustworthy old friend to save the day.~Jason Buchanan

GI Joe retaliation
Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
This is an excellent 4k movie. The visual effects will impress any enthusiastic movie aficionados. The story is well written, and the actors are best of the best, in every scene.This will easily go in the collection, of great movies. Thank you Best Buy.
I have to admit, as a kid, this show annoyed me. Only because I was at my babysitter's house and when her kids came home, they switched my show off to watch this one. But I had to admit, I started to secretly love this as a show. Being older, I was super excited to finally see these movies being made. Strange that this wasn't done before and that this franchise isn't bigger! It's now larger than life and filled with amazing effects, scripting, and actors. You'll love this movie! Now if only people would stop trying to put The Rock in every single movie franchise...
I remember watching the first G.I. Joe film back in 2009, and remember being indifferent to it. Channing Tatum back then was a poor actor in what I seen him in (Step Up, Dear John, etc.) and his performance in the first one was bland as all get out, along with everyone else except Marlon Wayans (even besting Joseph Gordon-Levitt) being mediocre, a mediocre script with a meh story, and just being an uninspired flick. I didn't have too high hopes, seeing they hired Jon M. Chu, who had done two Step Up films and the Bieber documentary, and Channing Tatum back as Duke, and I was just crushed. Then, Tatum had a stellar comeback and proved that he can act and surprised us in The Vow, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street. The Rock also starred in this film and when the trailer was released, I instantly said, "Must see G.I. Joe II". Then, 3 weeks before the film was released, it was delayed til March 2013. I was upset and thought maybe to give Tatum more scenes, but then I read on the news header 3D up conversion. Still, I was stoked, kept seeing more trailers, the half time clip during the Super Bowl keeping me enticed. Finally seeing the film, my instincts were correct and I had a great time with this film. Fun action, charismatic performance from The Rock, good story and surprisingly good 3D. This film is everything the first one should have been, which is a lean mean action film that doesn't indulge in back story, and had the Joes with no exosuits. The picture quality is terrific as is the fast and furious (*wink*) soundtrack and is easily a show off disc for your set up. This BBY exclusive includes the Unrated Action Cut, which add around 10 minutes of length but around 25 minutes of new footage, and offers nearly an hour of extras, but doesn't include the theatrical cut (The DVD included with the set contains this cut) and the extras that disc has. If you want the full package, which includes a couple of extra featurettes and the commentary, pick up both sets, because they both are recommended.

Still is a great movie, full of action and fun to watch!
I actually like this movie better than its predecessor, it has good action and SFX. Not too many people enjoyed this but just sit down and give it a watch and its not too bad, way better than the new Snake Eyes movie.
