There is nothing but bad buzz emanating from GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. There were rumors last week that Director Stephen Sommers had been fired from the movie; and that Stuart Baird had been brought in to salvage the project after it was tanking in test screenings.
While I haven’t been overly encouraged by anything I’ve seen, and this latest tv spot which features Sienna Miller’s non-accent Baroness calling the pursuing Joes “…real American heroes”. Ouch.
And one thing that I’ve finally noticed after watching countless trailers … that Snake Eyes is wearing business slacks. I can almost deal with the molded lips and ab muscles, but outfitting the most bad ass ninja in history from the Men’s Warehouse … c’mon guys.
