More like this is a reboot. GI Joe is an 80s\90s kids cartoon. There were a couple of movies done in the last 10 years but they were not all that great...

Well not familiar with the story line here, and not sure I'm interested in finding out, although the clip from that new movie looks like quite the action and adventure film apparently.  Hopefully I wouldn't need to know the story line to enjoy what is told through the movie.

For those of you not in the know. Snake eyes is the flagship* character of the g.i.joe franchise. He's a black opps commando, ninja and super soldier.
In the old comic series he was essentially Rambo; he was only truly happy when he was surrounded by enemies and found inaction unbearable.

Rise of cobra, 2009 is an unwatchable train wreck I still hate
Retaliation, 2013 is just as bad with the Rock stealing the show and Bruce Willis being a parody of himself.

The franchise as a whole seems to have run its course. Mostly because kids now play 'war' with their call of duty games

I remember him being mute (by choice) in the old cartoon and they kept it in later renditions. Storm Shadow was his friend and cohort during ninja training but he betrayed Snake Eyes and the clan and then joined Cobra. So now Snake Eyes (a Joe) and Storm Shadow (Cobra) are the bitterest of enemies. Like Kill Bill style klaxon blaring when they see each other seething hatred. This movie appears to be that origin story. So expect ninja stuff, yakuza fights, GI Joe and Cobra recruiting and perhaps showing up, and just action with some "brother against brother" drama.

Yeah that would be Baroness the femme fatale spy and infiltrator from Cobra. She was probably the most popular character when I was a kid. I can't imagine why...



The red head I am guessing is Scarlett. She was a bad ass and GI Joe's expert at counter intelligence (so like the anti-Baroness).

There is also a G.I.JOE animated movie from 1987. It has Don Johnson and Burgess Meredith in it

My knee jerk reaction is thinking the movie is actually the 2 parter when they go into an alternate timeline and Baroness is a good guy and Cobra already took over the world.  What was the movie about again?

The episode you are thinking of is 'worlds without end'
The plot of the '87 movie is contrived nonsense involving bug people from the Himalayas

That does sound familiar. Isn't cobra commander turned into a pathetic snake creature?

Yes. For decades it was rumoured to have something to do with Chris Latta becoming increasingly hard to work with
The DIC series rectified this but that series has aged like milk

I am also sceptical.

Haven't gone back to a theater yet.

However, when this arrives, I might give it a go ...
