    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

    Stephen Sommers knew exactly the tone to take (the same tone, mind you, the ‘Bayformers’ films should’ve taken) and goes hog wild making a live action cartoon. 
    Nanotech mumbo-jumbo.

    At no point did I believe anyone was physically where…

    I love the somber, gentle pace with a script that slowly informs you yet never holds your hand and I never knew what direction it was going. 
    Cage gives a remarkable and nuanced performance as someone barely holding back his grief yet whose  skills remain untarnished and a reputation that holds weight wherever he goes despite his character being…
