G.I. Joe: Retaliation ★★★½

"damn ninjas!"

the embargoat has run away with my rating, but i'll say this (again):

this is a bitingly hilarious satire of Truthers, so ridiculous it makes the 1st film look like a Frederick Wiseman doc. Big fun.

a bit disappointed by the action choreography given my love of Chu's STEP UP films, but ninja mountain is wonderful, and the whole thing is peppered with huge laughs (and the villains' plan is genius).
