Ralph,

As always your work is appreciated. ...AUTOMATIC purchase for me as I'm not only an HD/Bluray junkie but a vintage g.i.joe collector as well so this decision is about as easy as breathing.... Boom! biggrin.gif....

Wow, this 2d pic is easily one of the best I've ever seen. I put it up there with Skyfall, Zero Dark Thirty and 3:10 to Yuma as some of the most razor sharp and detailed I've seen. Loved the color palette and the audio is excellent although admittedly my soundbar wont take full advantage.

I had a chance to watch it alone on a Friday night. As some here said; it was a load of fun...total popcorn event but... RZV??? what is he anyway and why is he on anything pop-culture? Yup, he was easily the worst, most uncomfortable moment whenever he appeared but the Joe's saved it. Way better than the first one. I'm glad I bought it as I can see popping this one in a few more times even though it's not going to work my cerebral cortex too too hard! smile.gif

Love for all things Hi-def...Losing count; 200 plus bluray, 500 plus dvd, 30 plus HDdvd and a rapidly growing 50 plus in the cloud.

The audio and video in this blu-ray are indeed pretty spectacular, and while the story itself can't match them, I agree with Ralph's review that this is must have for GI Joe fans. I watched it in 2D the first time around, but the 3D version will be on the screen for the next viewing.

Thanks for reviewing it for us, Ralph! smile.gif

Finished watching this tonight I preferred this better than the first. The Audio in this was top notch and the Pq was good as well.
