i'm sure this movie is still gonna suck, how does it even connect to the last one? besides cobra taking over the united states?
You just answered your own question. Man, was the trailer really that confusing?
Not to me lol.
I think the only thing in the trailer that made me cringe was the Cobra flags on the white house.
Otherwise, I got it as Zartan sets up the joes, working with Cobra to wipe em out.
Snake Eyes, and possibly Duke, are captured.
Snake Eyes finds out that the Rock and them are still alive so he escapes to go help them overthrow the Cobra plot to take over the world.
Things I like about this so far,
Snake eyes isn't relegated to a peripheral role. (ala the Cyclops factor)
And his outfit looks WAY better. No weird pedo mouth. Ugh.
The Rock has this way of making even shitty movies very watchable. Theres always that.
It looks like the action will be more practical effects heavy.
More actual guns and exlosions.
Less accelerator suits and shit.
New director looks like he has a fairly good idea of what could make this workable.
Also, Bruce Willis.
Even though I am pretty hopeful about this, I think a straight up reboot probably would gain better milage with the fanboys.
Would it really have been so hard to scrap Tatum and do a new story? Hell you could even keep Ray Park as Snake Eyes. you ever see his face! Even though i will see this, and will probably really
like it, I think I kinda do agree with Smutty on this.
