Movie Review: GI Joe: Retaliation

This is the sequel to the original GI Joe movie which is a movie that is based on the GI Joe toy action figures.  This movie stars Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona (I'm sure he chose the name, D.J. because that was one of the dogs names who played Demon in Snow Dogs),  and Channing Tatum.  This movie continues the story where the first movie left off.  The GI Joe base is attacked and only 3 survive.  Hoping the entire GI Joe team has been eliminated, the President (who is actually Zartran), is on a scheme to "take over the world".  I think this is what happens when Zartran's parents allowed him to watch too many episodes of the cartoon, Pinky and the Brain.  If you ask this dog's opinion, Zartran does not have even half of Brain's intelligence.  This movie is an okay movie particularly if you enjoyed playing with GI Joe action figures as a child or even now.  You humans aren't fooling this dog--I know a lot of adults still play with toys.  However, I have always found bones more fun to chew, and my squeaky toys are far superior to the silly action figures who would be more interesting if they were dogs.  I have to give this movie 2 paws up, and that is about it.  It would be a 5 1/2 out of 10 on the human movie scale.  I would not discourage the humans from seeing it.  Most humans don'/t have a dog's good taste anyway.
