That was a lot of fun. No complaints here. I'm usually all for military accuracy and whatnot, but you can't really do that when you're dealing with an agency that's called "GI-Joe". I watched all of the cartoons on cartoon network reruns when I was younger, and I though that the movie was pretty much exactly like something that, if animated, could have been one of the mini series they did.

That submarine fight was classic GI-Joe through and through. Yoooo Joe!

Of course Batman’s somewhat unrealistic, and in some stories more than others, but not as absurdly improbable as your post seems to suggest.

The average person can’t get the shit kicked out of them on a nightly basis, no. But Bruce Wayne isn’t an average person. Look at Christian Bale in the Batman movies, his musculature is a good example of what can be achieved by the kind of physical exercise that Bruce puts himself through. All of that mass serves as the best layer of body armor that nature can offer. Muscle is dense and strong, with tightly woven strands of protein and blood vessels that serve as a natural bit of Kevlar to protect bones and organs. Taking the kind of musculature inherent in the characters that occupy the average “street level” comic, alongside the various nutrition supplements and meditation that many practice, they can all very well take a beating and keep on ticking.

And about the “marathon” run every night by Mr. Matt Murdock, what of it? There are human beings who run ultra marathons of 100 miles for fun. Take for instance the angelically beautiful and supremely bad ass Jen Shelton who has, on occasion kicked out 50+ miles with two pitchers of beer jostling around in her belly. The human body can do extraordinary things. Don’t count it’s ability out.

Eh, it looks OK I guess.

But why in the hell is Snake Eyes sword serrated at the bottom? that shit is banned by the Geneva Convention. Where's your honor Snake Eyes?

Also, that scene with the joes flipping through the streets is (nearly) movement-movement identical to the mummies in the double-decker bus chase in Mummy 2. 

June 25, 2009 10:09 am I don't know why everybody dislikes the military scenes so much. Josh Duhamel as Major Lennox was annoying as hell. But seeing Agent Pierce as a Four-Star was cool, and nobody does bad ass military tech porn like Micheal Bay. The orgy of military tech, Optimus Prime's bad ass scene in the woods and Megan Fox were the only parts of this movie that I even enjoyed.
