I just posted the link to Mike Ryan’s article saying that no real reviews have gone up yet, but then bam! We suddenly have a few reviews. I have posted some links below to check out these reviews, although keep in mind, there are some spoilers throughout. I have put the review scores in parentheses next to the link so folks can get an idea of the response without actually risking spoilers.
Reaction so far, among these critics, remains mostly positive. It will be very interesting to keep watch on this as the next few days go on, as more and more reviews from various advanced screenings start getting posted.
- JoeBlo.com (8/10)

- BlackFilm (No Rating, but overall positive)
There is a RottenTomatos spot for G.I. Joe: Retaliation as well, with the above three reviews linked to it, but not enough to yet build a “consensus”. That should change over the next few days!
Interesting thus far – if they can keep reviews hovering around 7 / 10 when it comes to more professional critics, they’ll make out quite well. I figure it’ll trend down more into the 6 / 10 range with time… which still isn’t bad for an action movie.
I want to read the reviews so much but I want to avoid the spoilers!!!! Man it is going to be tough to wait until next week. Oh well, it is a cool problem to have. After ROC we are lucky to actually get another movie.
I read several of the reviews, one of them did mention something i feared, we already know too much! They did say there was a few more pleasant surprises, but i’ve been feeling that way for a week or two, that i have simply seen too much and need to plug my ears and shut my eyes (although i am having a hard time doing it!)
I wonder what Jay Sherman would’ve thought of this movie.
k, just finish watching the movie, is very action packed, not going to go into details, but is very GI Joe like (cartoons/comics), lots of characters, it was very good, it was a sneak preview for the military, Marine base.
