Yo Joe ....Gimme my money back

So I just got back from the GI Joe movie midnight showing.  I know, I know, why in the hell did I go to a midnight show of this movie.  Well, ...because I grew up with GI JOE and I wanted this movie to be good.  To be fair I don't think it was horrible, but it wasn't very good either.  It's certainly not worth the cost of seeing it in the theatre unless you are simply going to see the cool effects on the big screen (and the special effects are certainly top notch).  It's certainly not the worst movie I've seen.  I was a bit upset at their treatment of Storm Shadow, cause he was the man as far as I was concerned at 8 years old.  They make him out to be so badass and then let snake eyes smack him around, which was hardly the case in the cartoon and comics I remember.  Perhaps I'm overly critical since GI Joe was such a part of my early childhood, but I don't think so.  I recommend you save your money and rent it, unless you absolutely must see it on the big screen.
