Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Two soldiers stationed in Kazahkstan (Captain Duke Hauser and his partner only going by the name "Ripcord") were ordered to transport a special weapon created by the weapon corporation named "MARS" led by a man named McCullen. But they were attacked by a force led by Anastasia DeCobray (who that Duke has history with), but were saved by a top secret special forces unit only known as "G.I. Joe". The leader of G.I. Joe, General Abernathy (or Hawk) is on the trail of an evil organization known as "Cobra". Duke and Ripcord want to join the Joes to help them defeat Ana and Cobra. Meanwhile, McCullen is secretly working for Cobra and supplying the organization with the advanced weapons of his corporation, one of them includes the "Nanomite" warhead, that once activated can eat any metallic products. As Duke and Ripcord trace Ana to Paris where she plans on destroying the city and to test this new, dangerous weapon. Now, Duke must stop Ana and Cobra before they take over the world, and to prove that he is a Real American Hero.

More Movie Taglines:
- When All Else Fails, They Don't
- Evil Never Looked So Good
- [from trailer] Destro: What did you say your unit was called? General Hawk: I didn't.
[from trailer] General Hawk: [to Cover Girl] Make the call...
Ripcord: All right, ladies! Mount up!
Heavy Duty: Standing in front of you are Delta-6 Accelerator suits. Heavy Duty: What does it accelerate? Ripcord: You. It'll make you run faster, jump higher and hit harder than any of your enemies. Let's suit up.
The Baroness: Try this on for size, boys. [launches missiles at the Joes] Duke: Oh, shit!
- Sam Worthington was considered for the role of Duke, but turned it down due scheduling conflicts with Avatar (2009).
David Murray was cast as Destro, but dropped it when he had problems with his visa. He was replaced by Christopher Eccleston; however, the character was named James McCullen XXIV, thus enabling Murray to film a flashback scene as the first Destro, James McCullen I.
Skip Woods wrote an early draft of the film, which featured Alex Mann (aka Britain's Action Man) and the antagonist as the Naja/Ryan, a corrupt CIA agent. Scarlett is married to Action Man but still has feelings for Duke, and is killed by the Baroness. Snake-Eyes speaks, but his vocal cords are slashed during the story, rendering him mute.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura originally envisioned Mark Wahlberg for the role of Duke.
The rapper Common was offered the role of Heavy Duty's cousin Roadblock, but when he turned it down the character was changed to Heavy Duty, who will be played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
