2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of The Cobra won over few fans when it was released and though the box office take was respectable, Paramount (and fans) felt the response should have been more positive. Blame was largely rested at the feet of director Steven Sommer’s who had committed similar filmmaking sins with Universal’s much derided Van Helsing (and to a lesser extent, The Mummy Returns), throwing cartoon-like spectacle at the screen at breakneck speed with precious little character elements to fill the intervening moments. With G.I. Joe: Retaliation, sweeping changes were made, including replacing much of the cast and bringing in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the main draw. Many of the changes work, though several storytelling flaws remained.
