I know a lot of folks are ranting and raving about the accelerator suits in the Joe movie…I’ve said my piece about them in several different places, and don’t really feel like reiterating here…but I just want to make sure everyone realizes. At Toy Fair, Hasbro talked specifically about the Accelerator Suits, and was very clear about something:
They are only used in one sequence in the entire movie.
The Joes will not be wearing these things for 2 hours. Personally, I don’t have any real issues with the Accelerator Suits in concept. I will admit the CGI looks a bit sketchy…but anyone who has any fears about cyborg powered Joes taking over the entire film, don’t. At most I’d estimate it’s a 15 – 20 minute sequence and that’s about it, the rest of the time will be spent with the familiar reactive armor gear (black suits with armor padding) or standard military equipment.
The reason they are being featured so prominently in the trailers in this latest clip is because they’re flashy, and they show off the effects that we can expect. Well, hopefully, they show off better effects on August 7th. :shifty:
Anyway, just didn’t want people to be getting all wigged out over what is essentially a short sequence in the movie.
