    in all fairness, those accelerator suits are based off actual "future miltary" hardware: [​IMG] joe mythology has generally veered towards the cutting edge of fighting technology with a bit of mysticism and plenty of good old american gusto, so the movie seems to be bringing a balance between the cheesiness of the original cartoon and the more serious tone of the comic.

    I wouldn't mind watching this. Might be blasphemy around here but despite watching G.I. Joe cartoons when I was a kid and playing with the action figures, I don't really remember it all that well and won't mind it being a mindless action flick (which is what I fully expect it to be). Hopefully they don't dumb it down and try the pathetic attempt at humor that was Transformers. Without Megan Fox to ogle, that would have been a total loss. Of course, they were trying to sell toys and games to the kiddies but I really didn't appreciate how silly they made it.

    it will be a good popcorn muncher. I hope they don't duck up snake-eyes character to much.

    I loved The Mummy, but I feel like this would be better if it was a little more in the Predator vein of action films than Transformer. Still, looks fairly promising for what it is.

    This looks like it will be complete crap. I don't remember the Joes using any type of "power suit" in any of the cartoon variations.

    The fight between Storm Shadow and Snakes Eyes however could be a saving grace if done correctly.

    So is this the reason they removed the delightful GI Joe remixes from Youtube? Bastards
