G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (Stephen Sommers, 2009)

Knowing is half the battle

G.I. Joe is a cartoon from the 80s, and also a 2010 blockbuster. Oh, it’s a live action remake all right – nevertheless still a complete cartoon. But one made with such enthusiasm it’s an easy film to watch. It captures the essence of the original (quite silly) Saturday morning show about heroic (mostly American) soldiers fighting against a snake-themed terrorist organization.
