Snake Eyes Movie Review: Not the Best Attempt to Resurrect the G.I.Joe Series.


Snake Eyes movie is the third movie in the G.I.Joe series. G.I.Joe was a very praiseworthy movie, and it genuinely impressed the audiences with the kind of advanced technology it showcased. The movie promised a very promising future with other movies, but this series kept on disappointing fans with underwhelming movies.

The first G.I.Joe movie also didn’t get many positive reviews, but the audiences seem to love that movie. But after the success of the first movie, makers planned a sequel with a much bigger cast, including Dwane Johnson and Bruce Willis in it. But that movie failed miserably.

Fans had much higher expectations from G.I.Joe Retaliation, but that movie disappointed the fans and almost put a full stop at the series. But the makers are trying to resurrect the series by releasing a spin-off movie of a very famous character from the G.I.Joe series, Snake Eyes.

There is also a 4th movie in the development of the G.I.Joe series, named G.I.Joe Ever Vigilant.

1. The Story Telling:

The thing which lacked the most in the Snake Eyes movie is the storytelling of the movie. The movie goes through many unnecessary subplots, which only slow down the pace of the movie, and the movie feels dragged.

Throughout the significant part of the Snake Eyes movie, it bores the audience and compels them to sleep while watching the movie.

2. Confusing Past:

The thing from which many prequels and spin-offs struggle is that the makers change the past and some events in the character’s life, which confuses the audience with which story to believe, and then the audience struggles to understand the storyline of the movie.

The same happens with the Snake Eyes movie. The makers have changed many things in the storyline of Snake Eyes from the first G.I.Joe movie that it confuses us now, and we struggle to understand the story properly.

3. Changing the Character Traits:

In the first G.I.Joe movie, we were more excited to know the back story of Snake Eyes because, at that time, Snake Eyes seemed a very mysterious character. Snake Eyes choose not to speak no matter what till he avenge his master’s murder.

But in the Snake Eyes movie, the makers have made the character less mysterious and like any ordinary movie protagonist. In the Snake Eyes movie, we are not much excited to know about the character because there is nothing mysterious about him.
