It's Not A Doll

Inspired by the Hasbro action figure, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra took command of this weekend box office with a $56.2 million debut domestically. Worldwide, "G.I. Joe" has been marked to gross over $100 million. Starring new comers to the action pack silver screen: Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje (Adebisi of HBO’s Oz), Marlon Wayans (Actor/Writer of the Scary Movie Series) and Byung-hun Lee (South Korean Actor & Martial Artist).

As I see it,
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has everything the audience could possibly ask for. Not only are there two black male characters that don’t die in the first five minutes, they're leaders and smart; move over, the movie features kick-ass ninjas, crash’em up car scenes racing through Paris, girl-on-girl fights, a few shady quick lines (not many but a few) and Eye Candy. What more could an audiences want in this action film? No matter what the national critic reviews were, you and your date would come out satisfied. (C+) or (3.5 Stars)

G.I. Joe follows the Transformers franchise as the latest toy story to invade Hollywood and plant its blockbuster flag onto the big screen. Over the past 45 years, G.I. Joe has become one of the most reckoned icons in the toy industry. 5 years younger the Barbie, he was born out of one simple concept, ready for Adventure. It’s Not A Doll but an Action Figure PEOPLE!! G. I. Joe gave an entire generation of boys a whole new way to play with dolls.
