G.I. Joe: Retaliation in 8-Bit Cinema from CineFix

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, July 19, 2013
After having watched G.I. Joe: Retaliation last night and finding myself annoyed with a lot of the movie, due to some ridiculously stupid decisions, when I came across the following video, I found it hilarious.

The folks over at CineFix have crafted a quick 8-bit rendition of the film G.I. Joe: Retaliation

8-bit Cinema "gamifies" your favorite Hollywood Blockbusters into 80's arcade and NES inspired action! No quarters or controllers required.

Great job, guys! Nicely done. Make sure you subscribe to CineFix on YouTube (and while you're there, subscribe to Fanboys Anonymous!)

As far as what I didn't like about the movie? Well...

1. Why did they kill off Duke? If they didn't want to have him in the movie, he could have gone off to do another mission and we could have just focused on these characters instead. It's not that hard. They claim that they wanted to do it to prove that the stakes were higher, but did anyone REALLY think that the heroes wouldn't win at the end? Pointless, and stupid, especially considering how big of a star Channing Tatum is nowadays. You just killed any chance you had of having Duke return with Tatum and give you a lot of money without introducing some dumbass resurrection plot that will cause the critics to pan you.

2. Flint was made to look like a total idiot the whole movie.

3. You're going to have a whole plot about making the Joes look like terrorists but Cobra are the good guys, and include a speech at the end where the President of the United States declares them heroes, but not say "the real American heroes"? What a wasted opportunity!

4. The Rock, a wrestler, is going to talk to an older, retired Joe, and it's not Sgt. Slaughter?!

5. As with most action movies, there's not enough character development...but really, you can't go into G.I. Joe's sequel after watching the first one and expect it to be as fully fleshed out as something like Batman Begins was 

Still, the movie felt closer in tone to what a G.I. Joe film should be, rather than the previous one, and it gave us a few interesting things like a decent Cobra Commander.
