Subject: how could they?

in the movie clip they showed they pretty much gave away how some cobra members die. the back of their jeep got crushed by a train and then the car blew up. they gave away too much! oh well. i am still definetly going to see this movie! it has key characters from the old t.v. series and it has special suits like in the show "G,I,JOE:SIGMA 6". but it looks better than both of those.

Grew up watching the carttons, had all the lil "action figures" Hope the movie is good. Im particularly interested in seeing Marlon Waynes take a step outside the comedy roles and see how he'll do in an action film! cant wait!!!

They have already screwed it up. It is no longer the GI Joe of the cartoons in the 80's. GI Joe was an AMERICAN Hero, not some global crap. OH WELL, I guess I will miss this one. Too many people want to be politically correct and I am not putting up with this garbage. COUNT ME OUT.
