Even the movie tried to be more like that, I guess Hollywood thought that idea would appeal & sell better to the rest of the world too...did this approach put off any U.S. fans?
Yeh this approach sure did put off a lot of US fans. Some of the US Joe fora in the run up to the movie release contained so many vile comments regarding GI Joe depicted as no longer a solely American team. Add to that several thinly-veiled racist remarks regarding Breaker's nationality. Quite sickening to read, really.
