G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

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.

Trivia: At the end of the film, the Joes are preparing for an operation code named "Mongoose". Mongooses are a family of carnivores known for their ability to fight and kill snakes, including cobras.

Trivia: When the Joes are in the pit, discussing their first run in with the Baroness, General Hawk slyly comments they have to find out her true identity because 'knowing is half the battle'. This was the infamous often quoted tag line for the G.I. Joe PSA commercials that aired after each episode of the 1980's cartoon series. (00:17:50)

Factual error: During the chase in Paris, the bad guy's car is nicked by the metro train. Instead of lunging forward (in the train's direction - and left in the car's direction) the car jumps 20 meters into the air. Even though the train has a tilting front end, the impact would never create a force in that direction. (01:00:30)

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.
