ROC was great, a fun film and used several plot points from Hama's comics.
Retaliation was boring and it scar-less Colton was an offense to both the character and the most recognizable trademark of the original G.I. Joe, but the film was necessary to give resolution to the Hard Master's murder, and at least it included :firefly:


Agreed. I wish to christ Firefly had kept his mask on though. Also wish he didn't kark it too. He was my favourite character in Retaliation.
that would be an ecumenical matter

I think I've spotted a couple of mistakes, too.

If I remember correctly, and I might be wrong here, I think the Royal Navy maintains a presence on the Thames, or perhaps the estuary, specifically to knock down any kind of unexpected aerial incursions in and around London. Or did I dream that? Well anyway, if it's true, the ending of Retaliation would be markedly different from what we saw at the cinema!

Also, :cobracommander: Cobra Commander's missiles from space were specified as not being 'launched' or 'fired' at a target; they're simply let go by their respective satellites, and gravity does the work. So when :roadblock: Roadblock blows up the satellites, wouldn't the missiles already in the loading arm of each one just fall to Earth anyway? It's like in the first film; if the ice-pack stayed afloat with all that steel inside, breaking the ice and steel up into bite-size chunks, effectively making those pieces smaller, wouldn't actually make them sink at all!

Anyway, these films are only meant for entertainment, (as sci-fi goes, they're light on science and heavy on fiction), and as I said before, when I'm watching them with the kids, we don't put the toys away and start scientifically analysing; we just have fun instead! :mrgreen:

I;d guess they would need to be armed, Spacey. They would be inert.

I love your commitment to analysing these movies! I'm sure you put twice as much thought into the plot lines as the film makers do!!

I know where you are coming from though. It winds me up when the suspension of disbelief is stretched too far and breaks the thrill of the ride.

Give's me the sh*ts when obvious canon gets thrown out the window too. Star Trek anyone?

Aye, arming them would make sense. If I remember correctly though, I think they were described as simply being flattened tubes (???) of platinum each filled with a tungsten rod. Sounds iffy to me!

I really did laugh out loud! I'll take that as a compliment if I may, ol' chum! Maybe they should've hired me for GI Joe 3...?

Chopper wrote:Give's me the sh*ts when obvious canon gets thrown out the window too. Star Trek anyone?

Oh, I agree completely. At least with Star Trek they bothered to throw in that single line about their destinies being diverted into an alternate timeline.... That at least goes some way to explaining the extremely broad differences that occurred!

If they weren't armed or fired they would drop without guidance, so they'd probably burn up on reentry. :-)

The amount of time paradoxes that went on in Trek before Kirks time would mean that a lot of things wouldn't occur, characters wouldn't be born etc and the universe would have been destroyed countless times. So the divergent timeline has a snowballs chance of occurring. If you catch my drift.

Yet another plot-hole! Well spotted, Chops! :chopper:
