Storyline

Time and time again, Cobra has been on the threshhold of global domination, only to be thwarted by the Joes. Now the ruthless terrorist organization has a new ally, the Cobra-La race, led by Golobulus. Golobulus wants to steal the Joes' "Broadcast Energy Transmitter" in order to ripen space spores and mutate the people of Earth. When Duke is injured and the rest of the force immobilized, it's up to the new "rawhides" and Slaughter's Marauders to pick up the slack and save the world.

Trivia

The name "Cobra-La" was not intended to be in this movie. The writers planned to replace this when they came up with a better name, but Hasbro loved the name. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, the tablet carried by the Statue of Liberty is clearly shown with the year of independence (1776) wrongly written as "MDCCIXXVI" instead of "MDCCLXXVI". See more »

Alternate Versions

In the Maverick Region 2 DVD release of G.I. Joe: The Movie (not Action Force), the movie begins with the original audio (the good guys are called GI Joe, and their battle cry is "Yo Joe!"). However, half way through the movie (around when Sgt Slaughter's team infiltrate Cobra Island), the video quality changes to something resembling a VHS copy and any mention of GI Joe becomes Action Force, and the battle cry "Full Force!" is used.

Fighting For Freedom Wherever There's Trouble Over Land, Sea, And Air! GI JOE IS THERE!!!
6 December 2005 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

First, G.I.Joe, I never really pay attention to the show, Because I'm a huge Transformers Fan.

However I figure I would give G.I. Joe The Movie a chance. To me, when it comes to movies and TV show, I always believe in the saying "Don't Judge People Until You Give Them A Chance" Well, I have some good and bad things to say about G.I.Joe: The Movie First, The Good: The Voice is awesome!, I'm Surprise that they got Actors like Don Johnson And WWF superstar,Hall Of Famer Sgt. Slaughter to star in this movie. The animation is Phenomenal, there's rarely a mistake in G.I.Joe The Movie. The Story is well-written, The writers wrote a very new story for G.I. Joe fans Now, for the bad: My main complain about the movie is that the music was just awful!, Only good song in G.I. Joe The Movie was the opening theme song, The Music came from The Transformers Series. I just love the music in Transformers The Movie, because it was new and all of the music in the movie match every scene.

Also, There were a few scenes that make no sense what so ever.

However, I didn't dislike G.I.Joe The Movie, But giving the chance between Transformers: The Movie and G.I.Joe: The Movie, I would watch Transformers: The Movie.

All in all, I thought that G.I. Joe: The Movie was a Okay movie, It's a movie for G.I.Joe fans.

I give G.I. Joe: The Movie 7 Out Of 10 YO JOE!!!!!
