Joe D'oh! - Part II

Word keeps trickling out regarding this summer's blockbuster-hopeful G.I. Joe, and it's not sounding very promising, unfortunately. Garth Franklin over at Dark Horizons was present for a screening of some finished and unfinished sequences, and here's the takeaway, reinforcing the very same concerns I've had for awhile:
Ultimately it is what it is - a Stephen Sommers film. Like Baz Luhrmann on speed, the man is about as subtle as a sledgehammer and so everything in this is huge and explosive in a visually impressive but utterly over the top and often quite silly way.
Bummer.
