Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins Review

In an era where franchises are all the rage, Paramount is sitting on two behemoths of untapped potential. Despite big box office numbers, the Transformers franchise has missed more than it’s hit, while the G.I. Joes have barely been able to sustain any momentum on the big screen. Much like 2018’s Bumblebee, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins takes the most popular character of its franchise — who is traditionally mute in the series — and gives him a voice along with an origin story. Unfortunately, the results aren’t nearly as successful.

G.I. Joe Fans Just Got The Best News About Snake Eyes

It's been a few years since the "G.I. Joe" universe was last seen on the big screen with "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." Paramount has since revived the franchise via the prequel route with "Snake Eyes," which explores the origins of the team's resident ninja. "Crazy Rich Asians" star Henry Golding plays the titular hero as the film builds a new version of the "G.I. Joe" universe with Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, and Úrsula Corberó as the Baroness.

Snake Eyes Gets Early on Demand Release After Only 25 Days in Theaters

With many studios on rocky ground when it comes to how and when to release their big movies, Paramount have made another unexpected move even by pandemic standards by announcing the release of Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins to digital and on-demand services will be tomorrow on August 17th, only 25 days after it released exclusively in theaters. While most movies premiering in cinemas without a dual release on a streaming platform have an exclusive 45 days before they air elsewhere, but now Paramount have bucked that particular short-lived trend with one of their first movies to attempt the strategy lasting less than half the exclusive period.

Layered performance by Golding can’t save Snake Eyes

If you decide to see “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins,” you might want to pop a dose of Dramamine before entering the theater for this dizzyingly shot action flick that’s meant to reset the franchise. From watching the movie, you might think the steady-cam operator was suffering from the jitters...

Why ‘Snake Eyes’ Missed Its Mark at the Box Office — and What It Means for the ‘G.I. Joe’ Franchise

At the box office, “Snake Eyes” is ringing true to its moniker. The latest “G.I. Joe” installment, an origin story starring Henry Golding of “Crazy Rich Asians” fame, fell short of expectations, collecting a paltry $13.3 million in its first three days in North American theaters. Those ticket sales put “Snake Eyes” in second place on domestic charts, behind M. Night Shyamalan’s mind-bending thriller “Old” and its $16.5 million debut. It’s an embarrassing start for “Snake Eyes,” which cost $88 million to produce, not including the many millions spent on global marketing. It also illustrates the limits of franchise filmmaking at...

‘Snake Eyes’ doesn’t play its cards right

Henry Golding has undeniable screen presence. He’s handsome, sure. Lots of actors are. But Golding also has that effortless charisma that the biggest movie stars possess. It’s no wonder that he was catapulted from relative, travel show host obscurity to film fame with just one role in “Crazy Rich Asians” and that his name often pops up as a fan choice for the next James Bond. If the powers in Hollywood don’t mess it up, he’s going to be around for quite some time.
