Weapons expert James McCullen has created a nanotechnology-based weapon capable of destroying an entire city. His company MARS sells four warheads to NATO, and the U.S. Army is tasked with delivering the warheads. Duke and Ripcord are delivering the warheads when they are ambushed by the Baroness. The two are rescued by Scarlett, Snake Eyes and Heavy Duty. They take the warheads to the G.I. Joe's command center, rendezvousing with General Hawk. McCullen is revealed to be using the same nanotechnology to build an army of soldiers with the aid of the Doctor. Storm Shadow and the Baroness use a tracing device to find the weapons and take them to Baron DeCobray for him to weaponize and use them to destroy the Eiffel Tower. The Joe's pursue them through the streets but are unsuccessful in stopping them from launching the missile. Duke manages to hit the kill switch, but in doing so he is captured and taken to McCullen's base under the Arctic. While Scarlett and Snake Eyes attempt to shut down the Arctic base, Duke learns who the Doctor really is.

on the worse end of the action packed spectrum.

Terrible waste of time. Decent cast was not used correctly.

I liked this action fiction movie. It is violent most of the movie. It is not appropriate for young audience. It is not very sexual. There is very little dialogue and lots of action. The G.I. Joe are in peril caught in the middle of an conspiracy they have to solve. It is a happy ending. The heroes are rewarded and they save their reputations and the country.

I don't even like GI Joe, and I was very taken with this film. Obviously it isn't very deep or inspiring, but it's got the right mix of humour and action you'd expect from this sort of license. Great cast too, especially Marlon Wayans. I was convinced the part played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt was really Keanu Reaves when I watched it at first, which was very thrilling at the time, somehow.

Despite the cheesy script and corny acting, it was ACTION PACKED! It was like Ironman and the Avengers took over the military to make super soldiersthat fight the infamous bitter, evil, disfigured scientist .

Viper Guard: Sir.

Duke: Self preservation. I'm taking you in, Rex.
