No wonder is was cheap to rent
Verified purchase
even at 99p rental you die of boredom before the first hour Should have listened to previous reviews and watched paint dry or something else for 30 minutes (the time I turned it off at) instead.

The trailer was way better than the film
Verified purchase
After seeing the trailer, I imagined this to be John Wick like. Sadly no. The best parts are within the brief highlight reel to advertise the film. I was fortunate enough to rent it for £1.99 as part of an offer. If you do want to watch it, I'd advise to wait until it's available at no extra cost on a streaming platform.

Some of the actions scenes are good. But they are very far apart and surpassed by many other movies.

The characters, I felt largely indifferent. There wasn't enough depth to them.

Better than expected
Verified purchase
I wasn't expecting anything great and yet I found it entertaining. The super-charming Henry Golding is slightly miscast as the main character (he can't really do the whole brooding thing properly) but the rest of the cast is solid, photogenic and effective in their roles. The action is good though if, like me, you like Asian cinema, it's never going to leave that much of an impression (the appearance of Iko Uwais in the film is a little reminder of this). I'd much rather watch this again while someone is plunging an ice-pick into my cranium than sit through 'The Batman' again - at least this knows it is simple, straight-forward entertainment and doesn't have delusions of grandeur.

Pity about Snake Eyes
Verified purchase
In my opinion, totally mis- cast except for Harry Golding. The Baroness should have been far more strident considering she was the leader of a cult. The entire film was so boring that I skipped through some of it.

Not the original (comic) origin story!
Verified purchase
Ok film with ok acting, at least by some of the actors, great effects and fight scenes.

However, as I grew up with G.I.Joe (Action Force International Heroes), A story of Snake-Eyes ' life, between the death of his master and his joining G.I.Joe, is what I had hoped for, so this was a huge disappointment.

POOR PLOT AND STORY LINE
Verified purchase
Snake Eyes is such an amazing character which this movie did not do justice to.

The fighting skills of snake eyes are never consistent. The connection with GI JOE and COBRA was rubbish.

Good actors rubbish script!!!

Better then the other G.i Joe movies
Verified purchase
A much better film then the previous G.I Joe films , actually has some depth to the characters.
Downside if you have watched those movies it changes the origin story shown in those films so does take abit of getting used too.
It's not the best film in the world plenty of action though and an easy watch.

One for the kiddies
Verified purchase
If you are hoping for a film even for the young adults then you will be disappointed. In fact save yourself the time and avoid. Poor storyline, poor characters and a hopeless hero. All in all just a steampunk'd effort to recreate the retro 70's Kung Fu classics. Please spare us a sequel, Oh that was supposed to be a prequel!
