G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra'


After the success of "Transformers," Hasbro figured it was time to transfer another of its long-popular toy lines to the big screen.

The result is expectedly big on brawn, if not brain, as Dennis Quaid plays the general in command of an elite brigade of soldiers – who are not all American and not all male – as they battle an arms developer and merchant (Christopher Eccleston).

Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Marlon Wayans, Rachel Nichols, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jonathan Pryce also are in the generally good-looking, well-toned cast. ** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
