    Actually, I'd be curious what it's like on BD. I just saw it on an international airplane flight. Thought it was so-so.

      I damn near rented the blu-ray over the weekend but just wasn't sure whether or not I'd feel bad over parting with my money if it turns out I hate it. I'll probably watch it eventually and if someone doesn't beat me to it, I'll post comments here.

          Well if I don't like the movie, the ladies could be the redeeming feature... :P

            That's why ugly people aren't in movies(thought Ron Howard keeps putting Clint Howard in movies???)...

            All in all...this movie looked pretty dumb to me. It seemed like a 'save the world' movie that had some G.I.J.O.E. characters in it...they could have easily left the G.I.J.O.E. out of it and still made the same movie...but I'm only speculating because I did not actually see the movie...I bet it sounds gr8 though :T

              I actually didn't mind it and thought it was better than Transformers 2 in fact. Yeah it was mindless entertainment, the plot was predictable and the character development was pretty much non-existent, but it was what it was, an action flick with lots of action. Great PQ and SQ on BR as well. I wouldn't buy it, but I had no issues with the rental.

                Yeah I'll likely go for a rental and shut down my brain.

                      I borrowed it from my buddy.
                      It wasnt a great movie as far as the story goes. But it was entertaining and there was some damn fine females to drool over.

                      Great SQ and PQ. Good no brainer entertaining way to spend a few hrs.

                        It was definitely a Popcorn/Brain Dump flick with good action sequences.

                        Peace and blessings,

                          After watching this last night, I couldn't agree more, Azeke. And even though most of the scenes were in environments on the darker side, the hi-def PQ just popped, and the audio was pretty good, too. I wouldn't care to watch it again, but I don't regret renting it.

                            I was silly enough to have gone and bought this.Forever will I think of this movie as G.I. Joke.Go to Rotten tomatoes...Seems very few liked it there as well.

                              I skipped right to "quick reply" and intentionally did not read others posts to start with, I'll do that shortly.

                              What a dud. No acting, no dialog, little story. The only thing going for it was the special effects, and I thought they were a overdone mash up.

                              I would have to be payed to watch this again.
