On one hand there’s a disposable popcorn-fun aspect to the experience of watching G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and I can appreciate the ‘throw it all onscreen’ approach taken by Stephen Sommers, but he can be a much better filmmaker that what we get here. After all these years, watching this first big screen attempt at exploring the G.I. Joe world, its flaws are more apparent, but there is still some fun to be had. It isn’t so much that it’s a bad film, it just isn’t a good film, and there’s far too much potential in the property and the cast and crew for that to be acceptable.
This 4K version doesn’t really offer a compelling overall reason to upgrade, so if you are interested or liked the film and never picked up the Blu, it might be worth grabbing a copy.

Stephen Sommers 'can be a much better filmmaker than what we get here'...really? Just had a look at his filmography...it's all rubbish if you ask me.
