    They make these types of movies to sell cheap toys to children. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional.

    When 3" action figures are approaching $10 each, we apparently have different ideas of "cheap"

    Cheaply made, sir. Of course the consumer takes it in the ass, price wise.

    You know it is from a dubious source when it calls "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" an American Classic.

    Remember when Conservatives were all up in arms because GI Joe was replaced by a multi-national United Nations fighting force in the first movie? If I had to guess, the filmmakers are just trolling both sides of the political spectrum now.

    I'll watch it because I don't read anything into movies.
    I watch them for entertainment value (and yes sometimes a lack there of)
    and not for any deeper meaning. Plus I can't stand regular TV
    any more. Reality tv sucks, sit coms are perdictable and not funny.
    Other than some of the adult toons and sports I watch movies.

    I'm just happy it's banned in Pakistan. Why? I have no idea.

    If you're asking why the movie is banned, probably because the first half of the movie centers around capturing Pakistan's nukes and the Pakistani president being killed by "Snake Eyes".

    Do they actually come out and say the evil president is a democrat or is it implied? That takes balls.

    It's a GI Joe movie. Can there really be a spoiler besides the movie itself?

    Kevin Spacey's character in House of Cards is a Democrat. and he's a backstabbing cunt who suicides people.

    I'd say neither. Political affiliation was never a plot point. Since the "president" we see most of the time is actually Zartan in disguise, his decisions cannot really be used as a determination of whether he's left or right leaning.

    Sorry for the spoiler Hudson ;)

    Zartan is infected with the nanomites so he can completely resemble whomever he wants. He "becomes" the President.

    They are both the same height according to imdb. I thought Pryce was 5-7 or 5-9
