Snake Eyes Revealed: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

The first pic of Ray Park as Snake Eyes in the Stephen Sommers directed film of the popular 80’s cartoon G.I. Joe landed on the net last night.


Personally, I’m not looking forward to this film. It will not be as intense as Batman Begins or the upcoming The Dark Knight. The operatives and soldiers of G.I. Joe and Cobra will be fighting a clandestine war with little or no blood because of Hasbro. Expect bloodless sword battles, soldiers that can’t aim their rifles and grenades that don’t splatter their victims or that kill them behind an onscreen obstruction. One bright spot in the film, other than the presence of Sienna Miller, is that Alan Silvestri is scoring the film. If you’ve seen Predator and Beowulf, you know how good he is and what he brings to the table. G.I. Joe lands in theaters August 7, 2009.
