From the Central Asian mountains to the deserts of Egypt, through the crowded streets of Paris to beneath the ice cap of the North Pole, the elite team of operatives known as G.I. JOE journeys on a non-stop adventure as they use the latest in next-generation spy technology and military equipment to fight the duplicitous arms dealer DESTRO and the growing threat of the mysterious COBRA organization from plunging the world into chaos.
In "GI JOE: The Rise of Cobra," there's Ripcord, an expert marksman and weapons specialist; Snake Eyes, a ninja warrior armed with Katana swords and a Glock pistol, skilled in martial arts, reconnaissance and infiltration; Scarlett, tough and bright, also a martial arts master and skilled with a gas-propelled Crossbow Pistol; Breaker, a specialist in deciphering covert electronics and technology; Heavy Duty, the team's weapons specialist; General Hawk, who is the team's commander; Courtney "Cover Girl" Kreiger, a runway model-turned-spy and General Hawk's assistant; and, of course, Duke, a combat veteran with courage to spare: he's the G I JOEs' leader and soldier personified.
From explosive and visionary director Stephen Sommers, who helmed such global blockbusters as THE MUMMY and THE MUMMY RETURNS, comes his latest thrill ride: the high-octane, action-packed adventure G I JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA. Bringing to life the world's most patriotic action figure mythology and catapulting it into the near future, Sommers has created a unique and powerful action-adventure.
