We knew the G.I. Joes would be up against their mortal enemy Cobra but this new trailer reveals an internal struggle that could be just as dangerous.
Okay, okay, maybe the G.I. Joe films don’t have the most compelling plot in the world but they’re trying. And at least they’re stepping the game up a bit with the addition of Bruce Willis to the cast.
Willis joins forces with the G.I. Joes including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Channing Tatum. So you’ve got that going for you, too. If your little guy is begging to go see the next chapter when it heats up this March let him enjoy the explosions and all the good guy-bad guy stuff while you just bask in more time with Tatum.
All joking aside, G.I. Joe: Retaliation stars much of the staple cast from the first go, but the enemy seems to have gotten the upper hand. Zartan has infiltrated the elites in control of the world’s armed forces and crept his influence so far as into the authority of the US President. It’s a bad and dangerous time to be a Joe.
The Joes are on their own and to say there’s a lot at stake is the understatement of the century. The surviving crew must band together, relying on the military training and expertise to fight back before all is lost.
This newest trailer promises lots of combat and action that’s probably in better taste than most video games targeted towards your little guy. Yeah, guns and explosions may not have the most substance in the world but perhaps they’ll entertain your dude long enough to express lessons of courage, loyalty, duty and teamwork.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation shoots into theaters March 29 and is not yet rated, although our best guess predicts it’ll be in the PG-13 range.
