1/10: Throwing things at a wall...
Monday, July 26, 2021

Throwing things at a wall bad Snake eyes was a movie I was extremely excited to see, movies have been lacking lately and after watching the bloated and awful "Black Widow" I wanted a gritty and enjoyable action movie. I went in fully expecting it to be bad, I hoped it would be better than the previous Joe movies but was only really there to watch action people do action things. But my disappointment was immeasurable and as I walked out of the theater with my friends all I could think was "that was garbage."Let's look at the bad things from the beginning,The first 20-30 minutes were way too rushed, first he's seeing his father killed by some dude with a big coat, then he's getting beat up in an underground fight ring (which had shaky cam so bad it could rival the Bourne movies), then he's approached by a Yakuza member and...

1/10: 😂😂😂😂😂😂 In short, they butchered...

😂😂😂😂😂😂 In short, they butchered a pretty cool character for absolutely no reason.The overall movie was painfully predictable, but in a slightly different way to the typical bad film. To elaborate, each scene makes you hope the stupid things you think will happen, won't happen. Tragically, they happen so abundantly that the plot literally twists itself out of existence and the main character's only accolade by the end of the film is that he's successfully ruined another supporting characters life.Brief Breakdown:1) There's barely any character development, Snake Eyes is unjustifiably proficient with a katana when he's never been trained to use one.2) It's clear that the script was poorly written, there was no depth and a lot of cringe dialogue.3) Impactful scenes had zero build up, hence they weren't impactful.4) As a testament to how poorly produced the movie was, they somehow left in a scene where...

4/10: Am I supposed to root...

Am I supposed to root for Snake Eyes? The film is a very forgettable one, first of all the cinematography is terrible, the decision of using a shaky cam in the fight scenes is beyond me, as well as putting the camera so close to the fight which doesn't allow to appreciate the fighting sequences.Second, the supernatural essence of a magical rock and supernatural anacondas shown in the movie, as well as the superpowers of jumping to the point of flying even just seem ridiculous and out completely out of context with the rest of the film.And last but not least, the script. It amazes me that snake eyes, the least charismatic character on display is the main one and the one we supposedly have to root for, his redemption arc is disastrous and doesn't feel deserved at all. On the other hand, Storm Shadow, the character that becomes evil just feels stabbed in the back...

slow, no depth, no Snake Eyes How is it possible to take such an amazing character like Snake Eyes and make t terrible? Well, the short answer is this movie.This movie had such a slow pace for an action film. Snake Eyes is one of those characters that brings you to the edge of your seat because of his unparalleled ninja abilities, infantry, and hand to hand combat. But this Snake Eyes lacked each of those. The movie spent too much time attempting to tell a dynamic story about him, but it was so slow that it barely gave any depth about him. He was not likeable. He kept on taking many blows in his fights and repeatedly needed assistance. He just was not Snake Eyes. He really was not. Even his notorious suit was not a thing until the end of the movie. Two hours and one minute of total run time for this movie, and the last...

2/10: G.I. No Just another...
Monday, August 9, 2021

G.I. No Just another reboot/remake/rehash/whatever of an old intellectual property that tries to capitalize on the diversity of it's actors, much like the Mortal Kombat reboot released earlier this year.We get nothing about the origins of G. I. Joe, Snake Eyes' induction into the team, or Cobra's origins. Just a generic, "gritty", MCU-styled action film that doesn't respect the source material and features characters who only look good and are charisma vacuums.The Stephen Sommers films (which were terrible) did a better job depicting Snake Eyes as the lethal, stealthy, and charismatic mute he truly is.
