actually games to movies suck more cos of weak story line. but not cartoons to movie, especialy classics like gi joe. and u need to have a good director. but suck or not, its still gijoe, would be a fool not to watch it
Stephen Sommers hardly fit the criteria of a good director. His last good movie was "The Mummy". That was classic! But his follow-ups, "The Mummy Returns" and "The Scorpion King" were hardly earth shattering. Top that off with that piece of turd "Van Helsing". If it was directed by someone with a good record, e.g. Michael Bay or Spielberg or even Bryan Singer, I would have been looking forward to this. But as it is now, I wouldn't be putting high hopes on this one.
