G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie poster

Review: Casting Ray Park as Snake Eyes earned them a lot of leeway. I was even willing to forgive the fact that they put lips on his mask. It’s the ninja equivalent of Bat-Nipples. But they countered that with a good deal of brilliant homage, as well as enough kicksplode to entertain me for the two hours needed. Even if they twisted a fond childhood memory a bit (Accelerator Suits…? The hell?), the action made it a fun movie. Not a great movie by any means, mind you, but a fun one.

Time: 21 seconds

    Ray Park? You know, that makes a lot of sense. After all, Ray Park is The Hottest Man Who Never Shows His Face On Camera.

    I was completely uninterested in seeing this movie until you said that, you know. Now….

    Also, isn’t Chris Eccleston Destro?

    Heee, Destro.

    Yes, Ray Park is just ninja enough to cover up all the suck and leave everything smooth and fun.
