“GI Joe,” the live-action motion picture, is based on Hasbro’s immensely popular line of “GI Joe” action figures. The sexy, up and coming superstar stars as Duke.
While some remember the character from “GI Joe’s” ’60s incarnation, he’s evolved. “GI Joe” is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, an international co-ed force of operatives who use hi-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil organization headed by a double-crossing Scottish arms dealer. “GI Joe” the movie is closer in tone to and than a war film.
Bringing to life the world’s most patriotic action figure mythology and catapulting it into the near future, Stephen Sommers – who helmed such global blockbusters as “The Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns” – has created a unique and powerful action-adventure.
Assembling an international cast of both rising stars and industry veterans, along with a blue-ribbon team of film artists, the ever-inventive Stephen Sommers has fashioned a tale of heroism versus terrorism, the ultimate in good versus the worst of evil.
From the Central Asian mountains to the deserts of Egypt, through the crowded streets of Paris to beneath the ice cap of the North Pole, the elite team of operatives known as “G.I. Joe” journeys on a non-stop adventure as they use the latest in next-generation spy technology and military equipment to fight the duplicitous arms dealer DESTRO and the growing threat of the mysterious COBRA organization from plunging the world into chaos.
