You know it's a full-on bomb and raped thousands of childhood memories when the review is (or was—this may change by the time you see this) the most read article on the Toronto Star's site. As the time of posting, it was number one for most of the day.
Anyway, here's the review.
Edit: I just realized that they've since removed the comments section from that page. From what I saw earlier, it was a bunch Advocates railing against the review and reviewer. One fellow went so far as to say he's dying to see to it because it was reviewed poorly, his rationale being movies reviewers enjoy let him down, so the more negative the review the more he's inclined to see/enjoy it. Someone else argued that since The Return of the Jedi was poorly received at first but went on to become a classic (in whose eyes, I'm unsure), G.I. Joe should be a masterpiece.
I hate comment sections in newspapers.

YAH IT'S TIME. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Finchie THAT's WHAT TIME.
I liked it. I'm glad it wasn't like the cartoon. I like how they reinvented the storyline. I don't care about the shit they changed mainly because in the cartoon there weren't any back stories for anyone. Nothing for Cobra Commander until Cobra La and I like how they did this better. I like how people died in the movie that they were actually hit, shot in the head, ran over, set on fire, stabbed in the back etc... I'm totally glad it isn't like the cartoon because I'm an adult and If i wanted to have a nostalgic flashback I'll rent the DVDs. So far I've been satisfied with the movies this year. That includes Terminator, Wolverine, Transformers 2 and GI Joe. The way you guys piss over fucking every movie you just need to stop going, but I forgot and this is the internet where the motto is "An opinion is like an asshole... everyone has one and everyone wants everybody to see theirs."
Who wants to come over and take a picture of my asshole? I don't know how to work the timer.
If you don't like something back it the fuck up with reasons not just bullshit and call it a review and for all you band wagon haters quit reading this shit and go see it.Critics should stop with the insults and comment constructively. Honestly, how many times have we heard about 2 wasted hours of our lives? I have wasted that much time and more reading the critics. See the movie and judge for yourselves.

Ya know, I was supposed to be at the midnight showing but I ended up giving my BF a blow job instead. Looks like I made the right choice!
