Twitter user Twitziller continues his “40 Reasons to Be Excited About G.I. Joe Retaliation” series with today’s image: rappelling assault!
High octane plausible action: this is what much of G.I. Joe Retaliation seems to be based upon! While the shots of ninjas swinging around a mountaintop retreat appear to use a significant amount of CGI, it’s shots like this that showcase a real world practical effects approach to action. It’s the kind of sequence that you’d have seen back in heyday of the action movie– the 1980’s! Roadblock is going for “shock & awe” in this sequence and, unless Cobra troopers have nerves of steel, the sight of a 6″+ heavyweight fast roping down with a SAW should be enough to send them running back to Cobra-La! (Yes, I went there.)
Check out Twitziller’s previous entries in the series below. The days until the film’s release are getting fewer and fewer in number!
30 days to go!
