Review:  I watched both G.I. Joe movies so I was eagerly awaiting the release of this one. As an origin story, it is natural that many parts would be left out, which could be expanded upon in the next movie, given the ending and mid credit scenes. You do sometimes get the impression that the direction seems a bit lost in certain scenes and when they try to correct the direction, it kind of creates more problems and questions. Still, a good watch, but not as captivating as the first two movies, I did enjoy Iko Uwais scenes though. The trailer is also misleading, with heavy focus on what to expect but, not happening as expected until you least expect it
