Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins
WHERE TO WATCH:
WHAT IT'S ABOUT:
Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner, is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage, who teaches him the ways of the ninja warrior and provides him home. But, when secrets from his past are revealed, his honour and allegiance will be tested.
WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:
Snake Eyes seems to barely recognise the talents of the cast it has on hand. - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)
Snake Eyes finally speaks, but with frustrating action scenes, a middling story and unearned sequel-baiting, there's not much here that's worth listening to, or watching. - Amon Warmann, Empire Magazine
And on the seventh day, God ended his work and rested. Because even for him, enduring this whole endlessly puerile blockbuster mishegas one more time was, if He was being honest, divinely exhausting. - David Fear, Rolling Stone
Compared to other Hollywood blockbusters, Snake Eyes is better than fine - but there are hundreds of Asian and Southeast Asian action movies that run circles around the final product here. At least Golding and Koji got theirs. - Matthew Monagle, Austin Chronicle
