Trailer: GI JOE: RETALIATION Doesn’t Look Completely Awful

I am no fan of 2009’s GI Joe. The script was a jumbled mess, rushed to completion ahead of the Writer’s Strike, the acting was atrocious and the direction was nothing more than a frenzied attempt to cover up those two big failings. Still, the movie made enough for Parmount to go ahead with a sequel. Now trailer editing can be deceiving, but this follow up does look like a step or two up, appropriate since incoming director John M Chu is perhaps best known for his work on the Step Up dance films. But rather think that I’m just operating under the lowest of lowered expectations, take a look for yourself below. The plot they unveil may seem a bit familiar if you’ve seen The A-Team or The Losers  or know the plot of this weekend’s new Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, so everyone involved have a tough job to make sure that it will still feel fresh when the film hits theaters on June 29, 2012.
