G.I. Joe: Retaliation — Generation X's childhood memories on steroid — 7*/10

G.I. Joe: Retaliation finally honors generation X's childhood after school memories. The cartoons were never this good, but then, we're much older and more demanding. Compared to the 2009 movie, it's much better.

The acting is actually good. It's not award winning, but it's enjoyable. The scenario isn't awe inspiring, but it doesn't take us for vegetables. The action is great. The special effects are perfect. There's a nice pace to the production. There's no big mistake.

However you need a strong suspension of disbelief, and you must ignore a certain number of logical flaws. More over, the 3D should have been scratched. It's not badly done, but it doesn't bring anything, and there's a few mistake including a number of in your face shoulders and one traveling action shot that was a bit too fast.

All in all, it's good action based entertainment.
