Starring: Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis
Genre and rating: Action adventure, not yet rated
Plot: Following the events of 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (which one critic compared to “Team America without the belly laughs”), Zartan — masquerading as the President — forms a plan to eliminate the G.I. Joes as a prelude to Cobra’s subjugation of the world.
SPIN: This sequel is also a fairly significant reboot, with several characters from the first movie killed off in the first act and a reinterpretation of the Cobra Commander.
