The Snake Eyes Movie is a Gamble
Man, I just don’t know what to make of the upcoming Snake Eyes movie. I’ll grant you that I haven’t been connected to G.I. Joe canon since the 1980s, so how really knows what makes that franchise tick in the 21st century. But is this it? Is this really it?
It’s a clear ninja warrior movie…but peppered with various characters and references to the wider G.I. Joe universe. But does those connections work? The trailer namedrops “COBRA” but never mentions G.I. Joe. And then Snake Eyes’ pretty face is all over the place, and even though he talks, he still has very little to say.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is going to be a weird, weird ride when it hits theaters on July 23.
