While the first film was a guilty pleasure to watch in 2009, the sequel suffered from bad dialog, flat characters and over-the-top action – even for a movie based on a comic book.
Regardless of what critics thought, though, the worldwide appeal of G.I. Joe was enough to more than double the studio’s investment and green light a third installment.
