Yo Joe posts the first collector/fan centric review of The Rise of COBRA

YoJoe staffmember and comic specialist Josh “Antarctica” Eggebeen got a chance to catch an early screening of G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, and was kind enough to post a VERY in depth review of the film here.

He gives a very well-balanced and fair look at the film from the perspective of a movie-goer as well as the perspective of a Joe fan, and has some great things to say.  Overall he seems very pleased with the movie, even if it’s not exactly what he (and many others) were looking for in a film based off of G.I. Joe.  It’s a great read, I recommend folks check it out, though beware, there are some spoilers.

Again, it’s posted currently at YoJoe.

We knew the 12″ Crimson Guard was a para-drop figure this year at the G.I.

IESB is a fairly reputable, objective review site, who certainly hasn’t cut G.I. Joe any slack through the production process.  More good words…
