G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) destroys the missile before it hits Washington D.C. and gets arrested after parachuting down. Snake Eyes (Ray Park) kills Storm Shadow. Rex (Joseph Gordon Levitt) dons a new mask, calls himself Commander, and injects McCullen (Christopher Eccleston) with nanomites to control him. The nanomites also heal McCullen and his face becomes metallic; Rex calls him Destro. Duke (Channing Tatum) and bunch of Joe submarines surround the submarine with Rex and McCullen and later they are both imprisoned. Ripcord and Duke join G.I. Joe. Ana/Baroness goes to prison and Duke promises that he'll find a way to get rid of the nanotechnology that's inside her (injected into her by her brother Rex). The President of the United States (Jonathan Pryce) was replaced by Zartan (Arnold Vosloo)(who was injected with nanotech earlier in the movie) when the President entered the bunker. The last scene is Zartan as the President sitting in the Oval Office and whistling "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow"...


Factual error: In the underwater scene when Rex blows up the ice pack, ice appears to be denser than water in this situation. The ice sinks when it's blown up, and even if there were pieces of metal on top of the ice, it shouldn't. Some pieces the size of a five-story building have no metal and still sink. (01:43:00)

Trivia: In the scene where Ripcord and Duke are in the transport and Ripcord pats Heavy Duty on the back and gets his arm twisted as a result, Ripcord makes a crack about Heavy Duty having a "Kung Fu Grip". This refers to some of the earliest G.I. Joe's action figures who were advertised to have the Kung Fu Grip.


More trivia for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Question: Why would Rex, a US soldier who fought to protect his country, turn traitor and decide to become a man who wanted world domination?

Answer: He was left for dead by his own comrades, badly injured by an airstrike that they called down on his location. He would likely say that his country turned against him, not that he turned on them.
