Haven't seen it yet, but it being aimed at a younger audience does make sense... if you're up for making money out of film merchandise! The average over 16 year old isn't likely to consider buying re-launched comics, action figures, wall posters and probably won't be swayed by a McKing Burger meal just for the free toy!

If the above is true, then it's a real shame that yet another franchise is ruined just for the sake of a few quick bucks on the back of a movie!

it exceeded my expectations, was pretty much set to be dissapointed after listening to the movies critics (when will i learn?) but i enjoyed it,some of it was very tounge in cheek and a bit cheesey,but all in all i enjoyed it, very fast paced and very action packed,plot was thin,but it was a movie based on a toy line aimed at pre teens.loved the storm shadow vs snake eyes moments, you can never get enough ninja into a movie in my opinion

I think it was great, and not as bad as I was led to believe.

Plus, there is nothing with a re-launch of the action figures and what not, know I bought myself a nice little set of my favorite childhood characters to pass onto my son one day.

Trevor_Drake: If you invested $1,000 in Delta Airlines last year, you would have made $43. In AIG, you would have made $33. In Leihman Brothers you would have made $0. Spent that money on beer and recycled the empty cans, you would have made $214. I call it a 401-keg.
Trevor_Drake: Americans walk roughly 900 miles per year, and consume on average 22 gallons of beer a year, so the average american gets 41 miles to the gallon!

Grish: hahaha
Katie_Drake: XD

I liked it but it had issues. Mainly whenever there was any amount of action the cameraman started to have epileptic seisures. I hated that type of filming when I saw Blair Witch and still hate it. The fact that they made Brendan Frasure to be Sgt. Slaughter WTF??? He is an ok actor but please unless you knew who is was supposed to be you would have never known. This movie was titled the rise of Cobra yet the whole movie revolved around the rivalry between Snakeeyes and Shadow. They were minor caracters in the series and comic book why all of a sudden they are top billing? Duke was a whiny bitch and what were they thinking when they cast Hawk? All in all I did like it because it brought back nestolgia but other than that I should have waited for DVD.

Please level my Daemons I want them to grow up and be fierce.

I recently saw this "film". I'm not a fan. All the time I was watching it I was thinking about team america, which is basically the same thing, only on purpose. Right down to destroying Paris.

Very silly stuff.
