I wished so much this movie to be far better than ROC but it doesn't. It seems to be better because it has more military op scenes, but it falls short.
What it bothers me most, is that there's not a single nod (except for Snake Eyes that now has an Uzi on pretty much every scene) to the most iconic looks of the characters, something that can be easily included in this film or any other with similar franchises.
They could have roll out the movie credits with Joe song from the cartoon as a nice wink to the fans, but no. Joes they even don't say Yo-Joe but bu-ha all the time. Even Willis says so when it is established that the Joes are called because of him; never exposed why he has such merit
Flint never wears a beret, Lady Jaye never handles a camera o throw a lance, Roadbloack does not cook except 2 jokes that hints that he is a chef and as for Jinx... she is there because.. I don't know really, but she alongside SE & SS have the best action scenes but she barely has a dialogue, however she is really well cast.
