GI Joe – Superbowl TV Spot

I’ve been enjoying this latest batch of TV Superbowl spots but out of all of them this is the one that has me worried.

Now I admit I never bought  any GI Joe toys (or Action Force as they were known in the UK) as a kid but I did watch and enjoy a lot of the cartoons. I think this is going to be one of those really good or spectacularly bad movies (think Thunderbirds).

There was some stuff in the TV spot that looked good (Snakes Eyes) and I’m a fan of both Chris Eccleston and Dennis Quaid. It was just that cheesy shot of all the Joes (can I call them Joes?) walking in a line that set off my cheese radar. I hope they can pull it off. I’ll wait to see what a full trailer gives us before I start to get really worried.

In the meantime when are we going to get an Action Man movie?

    I’m excited about this film and the trailer looks OK but not sure about the group all wearing the same outfits. The outfits were an important element of the characters. Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow and Scarlett are fine but the others. Hmmm.
