Probably the most enjoyable movie I've seen so far this year. Funny, heartfelt, with a very good performance from Chris O'Dowd.
I'm going to break this down into two semesters. The first semester (first half of the movie) I'd give an A. Terrific use of Tina Fey, nice set pieces. But the second semester gets a C. The movie just didn't hold together as well as I would have hoped.
I think it's kind of a miracle that they can turn something like G.I. Joe into a movie franchise in this day and age—but the action in the film just keeps coming at you.
A potentially terrific and important story turned into pleasant-enough vanilla pudding.
Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes—how could you go wrong? Stay around for the third act and you'll find out.
