    Synopsis


    G.I. Joe: The Movie
    When Golobulus (Burgess Meredith) and Cobra plot to eliminate mankind and repopulate the world with a vicious race of ancient reptilians, it's up to Duke and company to prevent them from acquiring the technology that will enable them to do so in this feature-length adventure based on the classic cartoon series. Centuries after being driven underground during the ice age, the Cobralas are back, and ready to reclaim the planet. They've developed a plant with spores that possess the power to drain humans of their life force, but the only way they can get the spores to mature is by using the Broadcast Energy Emitter - a revolutionary device with the capability to provide enough energy for the entire planet. As Duke sinks into a deep coma following a fierce fight on the battlefield, Lt. Falcon (Don Johnson) rises to the challenge of leading the Joe team on their most important mission to date. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The good GI Joe movie

      Yo, Joe! This Blu-Ray is the movie to see if you're a GI Joe fan. This is the movie made at the same time as the animated Transformers movie but never released theatrically (I saw it for the first time on TV). A new threat, called the Cobra-La, comes onto the scene with a plan to conquer the world and wipe out Human civilization. Along the way, we learn some of the background on the Cobra Commander and Serpentor. The action is just as exciting as the TV series this is based on. If you like action, then you'll enjoy this movie. There are lots of thrilling (and generally non-violent) combat scenes, we get to see lots of cool action with both the characters and the vehicles. Just about every character from the TV series makes an appearance, and some intriguing new characters are introduced as well. Both the familiar and the new characters are pretty well-developed. The animation is of good quality, not quite Disney level but it looks pretty smooth and fluid. The soundtrack uses existing music from the GI Joe TV sries (and a few selections from Transformers) but the opening theme is new, I love the opening for the GI Joe movie. It's the best version of the GI Joe theme in my opinion. The HD transfer makes it all look and sound great. I ddin't notice any source material issues, so Shout Factory did a good job on the re-mastering (I'm hoping for the GI Joe and Transformers TV series to be released on Blu-Ray now). My only complaintis the lack of extra features. It includes an art gallery and some PSA's from the TV series, but I would have liked some more background on the making of the movie. Some input from the producers and voice actors would have been nice. The Blu-Ray could also have included the original script for the movie. I would have also liked a gallery of covers from the GI Joe comics. If you're a GI Joe fan, or you just like action movies, then I strongly recommend this Blu-Ray. A fun and exciting GI Joe adventure in a top quality Blu-Ray transfer. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

      Growing up watching G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, this movie was great. I still enjoy it as an adult, and nothing beats the opening sequence. If you're a fan of the original G.I. Joe cartoon, you'll enjoy this. The blu-ray is nice and it's really great to have it widescreen. Plus, having the DVD is an added bonus, to bad there is no digital copy.

      This movie is a classic for everyone that grew up watching the original GI Joe series. The best part of the movie has to be the incredible theme song. They took the original theme song, and gave it a more heavy metal twist. I want it as my ring tone.

      If you grew up with this series do yourself a favor and get the blu ray. They cleaned it up pretty well. Much improvement over the DVD.
