One month after the record-breaking opening of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," the team of Paramount and game-maker Hasbro proved again that toys are serious business at the box office.

"G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (http://www.cnn.com/ew/news/reviews/current/0,,,00.html)" overcame bad buzz and scathing reviews to win the weekend with $56.2 million, among the best August openings in history for a non-sequel.

The win also adds box office clout to the careers of stars Channing Tatum ("Fighting") and Sienna Miller ("Stardust"), who both scored career bests.

I loved G.I. Joe as a kid but have no interest at all in seeing this BS

The movie wasn't good at all. The story and the back story were absolutely horrible.

ii kind of like the back story of snake eyes and storm shadow, since they were always the most popular characters in the cartoon, did not like the duke and baroness thing though

How can they even have a backstory? What the backstory similar to what it was in the animated TV show? If not, how can they just create a backstory and think they can get away with it?

They were made up to my knowledge. You should hear the Cobra Commander story, that will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Spoilers below:



For the most part all of the characters are connected and in strong ways. Especially Duke, Baroness and Cobra Commander. It's embarrassing.
