A true sequel to the first film, sporting the original cast with a few choice additions from the expansive G.I. Joe pantheon could have been a great summer popcorn flick. I really should have known that “Retaliation” was not going to be that film. Unfortunately this was a battle I lost. Actually, we all did.
The movie is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of combat violence and martial arts action throughout, and for brief sensuality and language.
