G.I. Joe: Retaliation

First slide

In this explosion-laden, ear-splitting 3-D sequel to 2009's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," directed by Jon M. Chu, the president (Jonathan Pryce) has been kidnapped, and the imposter (Arnold Vosloo) who has assumed his identity is bent on world domination. But first, the villain must spring his nefarious commander (Luke Bracey) from prison and eliminate his main opposition: the elite fighting force of G.I. Joes led by Dwayne Johnson.

Watch out for: Pervasive action violence, brief gore, a handful of crude and crass terms.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13, parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
