DVD: GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra (Paramount)
GI Joe is a noisy, frenetic, CGI-laden blockbuster that exists to advertise a range of paramilitary toys, but compared to its peers (ie, the dreaded
Transformers movies) it’s orchestrated with tremendous skill.
The plot is insanely complicated, and yet somehow it all fits together. Similarly, there’s a colossal number of characters, and yet they’re all distinctive, and the actors have fun with their roles. If you’re an 11- year-old male it could be the best film you’ve ever seen.
