** When Zartan destroys the mind control chip during his surgery, [=McCullen=] looks concerned for a moment, while the Doctor doesn't even blink. Was this just Zartan being GenreSavvy and the Doctor not caring, or a sign that [[spoiler:Zartan is already loyal to the future Cobra Commander]]? Either way, [[spoiler:guess who's Cobra Commander's [[TheDragon Dragon]] in the sequel.]]

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: [[InNameOnly Cover Girl]] in this movie is basically just General Hawk's assistant before Zartan kills her. Cover Girl in the source material is a former professional model who took up driving tanks for a living. Not even the G.I. Joe fans realized that the character was supposed to be Cover Girl. You know you've wasted a character when not people with knowledge of the source material knew who the character was supposed to be.

** Rex's "Cobra Commander" helmet. Whoever was in charge of costuming either had no idea what the Commander looked like besides "shiny helmet", or tried to somehow combine Rex's look before he revealed his true colors with the look commonly associated with CC. [[http://thesecondtake.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Cobra-Commander-Rise-of-Cobra.jpg The result]] was...interesting.

Added DiffLines:

* WTHCostumingDepartment:
** Snake Eyes' mask having embossed lips. The idea of [[TheVoiceless a character who doesn't speak]] having embossed lips on his mask is just ridiculous. It also proved distracting to the audience.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The movie pulls ideas from several different toy lines, comic books, and animated series. Many of the details that fans complain about the movie "changing" are taken right from the source material ... just not an iteration of the source material the complainer is familiar with (e.g., you don't have to like the powered suits, but if you know the ''VideoGame/GIJoeSigma6'' line, you know the movie didn't make them up).

* AcceptableTargets: Averted; France's brutal treatment of Destro's ancestor is what pisses his entire family off. Played somewhat straight after the Paris sequence; [[spoiler:the French move in on the Joes with RAID. And smack Ripcord in the face. And wreck their gear. Then say that the team is banished from the country. The French would rather lose a city.]]
** Well, the Joes DID cause a crapload of collateral damage AND failed at stopping the villains. It could be a {{Deconstruction}} of HeroInsurance, even.



** Actually the entire cast, to various degrees, it's GI ''FRIGGIN'' Joe.
*** Though two are mentioned under DullSurprise.



** Except [[spoiler: he won.]] Sure, the Joes [[spoiler: stopped the missiles]] but [[spoiler: Zartan is now President and working for Cobra Commander, who the Joes think is safely locked up]].



** The novelization seems to add considerable mutual witty banter and, yes, flirtation.
*** While we're talking about [[{{Novelization}} The Book Of The Film]], it also offers HoYay for Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, who seem to be matching OfficialCouple (sort-of) Duke and Ana/The Baroness flashback for flashback, meaningful look for meaningful look. (Bizarrely carries over to the ''Ninja Showdown'' kid's book.) Oddly out-of-place due to the gist of their past relationship being "We really, ''really'' don't like each other."

** What, we need an excuse to scream "COOOBRAAA!!!"?



*** Look on the bright side - at least it's not Shia Labeouf as the leader of the Joes.

* HarsherInHindsight: The attacks and destruction in Paris after the real-life terrorist attacks on Paris in 2015.
* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/ChristopherEccleston's character designed the bunker under the White House. Did you know that as [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] he operated the bunker-like office in 10 Downing Street (the Prime Minister's place)?

2015 makes watching the ''entire'' movie ''far'' less enjoyable.
