GI Joe: Resolute (2009)

I’ve never been interested in the GI Joe franchise in the past and I reckon neither will I be much interested in the future, but the recent animated movie Resolute piqued my interest due to the involvement of Warren Ellis. As far as things go, it’s a slick, fast moving action piece that is fun to watch without giving you the feeling watching something incredibly stupid, despite the hackneyed setting. Since I don’t know much about the franchise apart from the fact it’s been used to sell puppets (aka action figures) to boys, I don’t really know how much the movie adheres to the established continuity, but knowing Ellis’s work I expect some bastardization of much loved elements going on.
