Oops! I G.I. Joed Again...
Just for the record, i've just watched G.I. Joe again... Yes! For the second time!!! I know!!! What the eff!?? rite? Well, i watched it for the sake of the 3 gay asses that haven't watch it and they were dying to get some piece of the action.
The Three Faggaloos...
Since the movie is out already, guess it's no harm in me sharing my insight of the movie.
Well yeah, i did a review on it but i didn't spoil the jizz of the whole movie la. Didn't want to leak out any spoilers ma. But now, the beans are spilled so here's my IMHO...
Firstly there's just too many easter eggs hidden in it. Mostly are intended puns referring to previous movies in the past. Yeah...yeah... I've told you guys already. But here's some that I've missed out.
Below are some of the trivias which some might or might have not known:
1. Stephen Sommers who is the director for this movie also directed The Mummy and its sequel, The Mummy Returns which he had his 2 leading stars play small roles in this movie as well. Brendan Fraser as Sergeant Stone and Arnold Vosloo as Zartan
2. Sergeant Stone(the character) suppose to be a descendant of Rick O'Connell from The Mummy.
3. Kevin J. O'Connor (who had roles in Sommers's Deep Rising, The Mummy and Van Helsing) as Doctor Mindbender in a flashback scene.
4. Two actors from LOST (TV Series) were cast, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Hershel Dalton / Heavy Duty and Saïd Taghmaoui as Abel Shaz / Breaker.
5. Last fight scene of Storm Shadow vs. Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow attached his 2 katanas to form a single long double blade which resembles Darth Maul double light sabres which Darth Maul was played by Ray Park and in this movie Ray Park plays Snake Eyes.
6. Scene where nanomites where injected into Zartan and when he screams as the facial reconstruction takes places, the scene resembles High Priest Imhotep when he screams out.
7. Part of the film is set in Egypt, near the Pyramids. This is a reference to Stephen Sommers's film The Mummy (1999). It also provides a link to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), which has its climax set in Egypt.
So...there you go... XD
Oh ya...Lastly i think i wanna review on my ratings for this... Coz i think credits have to be given to the in-depth character-story-lines, that's something i overlooked. XD
