Sure, we’re jumping the gun with only a few registered reviews posted but surprisingly enough, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is currently at 91% positive at RottenTomatoes.com. This number is sure to fluctuate as more contributors see the film but the comments on the site seem to bode well for the film’s box office. Here are a few of the more interesting comments thus far:
- G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra’ is… a summer movie, through and through, pure pulp preposterousness, one of the most successful little-boy adventure movies in a long time.
- Pure escapist fun.
- Stephen Sommers’ film captures the silly energy that made the series such a childhood favorite and finds a way to fulfill the expectations of fanboys from 13 to 30 (okay, 33) in the process.
- If I was 10 years old, GI Joe would be one of the best movies I had ever seen. As a grown up it’s one of the better summer movies; a delightfully light, fun and action-packed kick in the ass.
Love it or hate it, we’ll all find out on Friday!
