With the thrilling Mountain Battle clip this morning as well as the news that the Premiere is airing in Korea, the reality of G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s impending release is starting to sink it. I think this thing is really going to happen! Twitziller thinks the same thing, and has launched Reason #18 why G.I. Joe: Retaliation is going to be great. Seems like a no brainer, but there are elements to it that folks might not have considered.
I mean, it seems pretty clear, right? You’re watching a G.I. Joe movie because you want to see the G.I. Joe team? Well, sure, but it goes beyond that. Twitziller mentioned it perfect in a single paragraph up above, and it’s something that both Larry Hama and the Sunbow folks understood. The G.I. Joe team is a team at its essence. A group of men and women coming together to face a common threat. They each have their own specialties and talents, and when they bring them together, they can be unstoppable. In G.I. Joe: Retaliation that teamwork is even more important as the Joe team is whittled down to a handful of members who must come together to survive.
One key word above must be focused on as well… “diverse”. The G.I. Joe team truly had a fantastic mixture of genders, race, and personalities. They weren’t all hardcore, chiseled bad asses. Some might argue that fact has been lost a little bit in recent days, but I think at its essence the spirit and teamwork in G.I. Joe seems to be carrying through.
