I have always wondered where G.I. Joe went wrong when they hit the big screen. It seemed like they had some success, but maybe they should have held to the comics and the animated series more. I love the uniqueness of each character. The movie had every character in the same uniform, but I think what makes G.I. Joeso great is all the different uniforms and specialties. Each character was easily identifiable by their uniform.
I would have loved to see some Shipwreck and Footloose, some Dusty and Alpine, and some Airtight and Barbecue. Characters who helped define the G.I. Joefranchise. Some characters that we all grew up with. Instead of seeing them in a generic black suit or a modern day camo scheme, I would have rather had some of the classic uniforms brought to life on the big screen. Even if they put a modern twist on them such as they did to Snake Eyes and Storm shadow. It would have been cool to see some Eels or some Crimson Guards. They could have put a couple characters in modern military uniforms, but I would have loved to see some of the great classic characters in their respective uniforms. I just thought that would have been a big pull for fans, but that’s just my 2 cents worth.
Are you a fan of the G.I.Joe Live Action Movie excelerator suits or the black composite body armor? Or were you hoping to see modern versions of your favorite character uniforms on the big screen? Do you think Hasbro should listen to fans and put real homages to the classic uniforms in the upcoming G.I.Joe movies from Paramount Pictures? Sound off with your opinions AFTER THE JUMP!
