This is badical... but I'm mad at them killing the cast of the first movie. Kinda fucks up the fun we had with them in the first movie.

Yeah it's going to kick ass, but how does it ruin the fun from the first movie?

Going through all that fighting and struggling and action only to have all those characters you adventured with and admired get killed in the next movie just really up and kills the first movie for me.

Well they are soldiers fighting a war with a terrorist organization. Duke and Snake Eyes are still alive, so not all of them died. I mean this wouldn't be like the cartoon where everyone has a parachute.

What do you mean they killed Duke? He was shown alive in the trailer with RoadBlock & Lady Jaye.

Wait...no...that wasn't Duke..it could have been Flint or Tunnel Rat. Either way, it doesn't prove that Duke dies during the raid.

Purely from a real world stand point, I think it's weird to hire the actors and only use them for a fraction of the movie. Even if they aren't dead, this trailer makes it obvious they won't be the focus of Retaliation.

It just bugs me to see characters killed off arbitrarily in fantasy war films where pretty much everything should be a controlled action and characters shouldn't be killed off just to prove any point that anyone can die. I like my character death to have some more meaning and foreshadowing to it than being so abrupt like this trailer makes it out to be.

Did they change a lot of the cast? I don't see the general guy and the other guy that piloted the plane in the last movie. Looks more like a real action movie than a toy movie, which looks like a step in the right direction.

So there's no Cobra Commander, and Scarlette is not back with the Joes? I just get this big MEH feeling from the trailer, although it will probably end up better than the first one (which was lousy btw).

Did they blew all of their money getting Bruce Willis and the Rock so they couldn't even keep the actor that played Duke for more than one scene? :eyebrow:

At least they only need the costume for Snake Eyes... He's the Wolverine/Batman of the Joes, they couldn't take him out of the movie.

I saw a rumor state Duke dies in the opening. I'll be VERY happy if that's not true.
