The Joe’s are back and this time they’re bringing the Rock with them….oh and some bloke called Bruce Willis.

Even though there was some serious overuse of CGI and a story you could write on the back of a matchbox I enjoyed the first GI:Joe film. I mean it’s not like it was a twist that the film was going to turn out to be stlye over substance. Granted I did watch it on DVD as I thought it wasn’t going to be worth going to the cinema but it was a fun little diversion. After watching the international trailer for the sequel I may have to change my stance with regards to waiting for the DVD but first I’ll need to run the trailer through my little action checklist.

*Pulls out pen and checklist at this point*

OK let’s get this action checklist done

  • A world on the bring of chaos.
  • The good guys all but beaten and running scared.
  • Only a few bad asses left but boy are they bad asses.
  • Ninjas fighting on mountainside.
  • The Rock atop a tank with a gun that’s bigger than a small city and looks like it could level one.
  • Ninja training and more Ninja on Ninja action than you can shake a Katana at.
  • Bruce Willis showing why you should never leave him a lone in the back of a truck.

Hmmm something tells me I may just be popping along to my local cinema to check this beast out because sometimes I just want to sit back and watch stuff get blown up for ninety minutes.
