In regards to GiJoe 3, too bad we can't have Firefly. He was great. Zartan can come back (there are ways)

It would be cool to see the Dreadnoks, Stalker, return of Scarlett, Scrap Iron, Rock n Roll and Dr Mindbender.

My Recommendation don't see this in 3D it isnt worth it. There is literally one moment in the entire movie that is 3D and pops out at you. If I could take it back I would. Otherwise it was a good entertaining movie!

 Yeah, I knew there would be a sequel when I walked into a packed theater on the third day of the release.  I knew this movie would make a lot of money.  Like it or not there will be another.  If Transformers can have 3-4 mindless popcorn flicks, so can GI Joe.  As long as it keeps making money.  My concern is that they don't trash the franchise.

In regards of the sequel, they implied that Duke died.  They could have showed his body, but they didn't.  That wasn't his body RB took the tags from.  Whether they'll bring back Tatum, I dunno.  The thing is they have plenty of other Joes they can use.

As far as villains go, they still have Cobra Commander out there, the Crimson Twins, Major Bludd, Dreadnoks, all that can provide a story.  Not only that but they have so many other stories to pull from.  Yeah I'll go see another one.

Destro is still alive, don't forget...

I'm glad to see that it did so well. I honestly believe the movie wasn't "bigger" because the studios needed to see if it could recover from the fan back-lash of ROC. Now that it clearly has, I believe the studio will approve a much bigger budget for #3 AND it will be written right too...    YOOOO JOE!!!

Shogunn, I don't know if you realized it, but ElBaz made all of those points becasue that's what he hated about the first movie - he wasn't lamenting what was missing in this one.

 No, I get it.  I completely agreed with his every word.  I quoted for emphasis.  He was absolutely right in his hate.  What I'm saying that this movie didn't have ANY of that(Thank the good  Lord).  This movie was missing(or purposely didn't have) a lot, but it didn't go out the way to offend the license like the last one did.

Your review is COMPLETELY off-based. Yes, this was a much better movie than the first movie.  The first movie was a turd-fest. But this movie was concise and to the point. The movie was simply about world power and greed and it hit every point of this simple story line.  Were we expecting some drama-filled, Oscar-Worthy performance? Heck no!! But what we were expecting was a movie that had a plotline and delivered an enjoyable action-packed story.  And to add on top of that this movie filled in many of the holes left open by the first turd-fest of a movie!! Man, what we got was a two-for-one. 

Rob, you need to get over yourself. And get a life. Your review on this movie was way off-base and by the fact that $300 million plus dollars worth of moviegoers disagree with you, you may want to reconsider this whole movie critic thing you think you've got going on.
