G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra

G.I. Joe is not a person, it’s an elite military group. You don’t apply to be part of the group, they ask you if they think you are fit for the task.

Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) are part of a NATO troop that have a mission to deliver warheads to NATO. The warheads contain a new weapon based on nanotechnology. Each one of the warheads have the capability to destroy an entire city. The company behind the technology is MARS, lead by weapons expert James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston). James has his own plans for the warheads, and that does not include letting them get to their destination.

The NATO troop is ambushed by The Baroness (Sienna Miller) during a mission. As the fight goes on, Duke recognizes the Baroness to be his ex-fiancee Ana. They are both a bit surprised to be meeting in such a manor. A team of G.I. Joes comes to the rescue, and the bad guys are fight of, for now. Read the rest of this entry »

I am legend

Recently bought this movie on dvd. I got a special edition that includes the movie with an alternative ending.

So far I’ve only seen the alternative one, but I will watch the original eventually. When I’ve done so I can let you know witch one was the best, but I can say that I enjoyed watching the alternative one.

It’s a movie where mankind is once again threatened by their own doing, with few survivors. We are following one of them, Robert Neville, a scientist, who lives in New York. He was actually on the team causing the threat in the first place.

The threat this time is a mutated virus, that was launched as a cure for cancer. But somewhere along the way something went wrong, seriously wrong. Those infected by the virus becomes monsters, the bloodthirsty kind. Robert Neville somehow seem to be immune to the virus, and he is on a mission to find the cure. He has his own lab in the basement of his house.

Over all I guess the story could have been better, but it’s a good movie. With action.
