Product Description G.I. JOE: VALOR VS. VENOM is a feature-length CGI animated adventure featuring Hasbro's most popular character, G.I. Joe. America's daring, highly trained special mission force faces its greatest threat yet from the evil Cobra organization, under the direction of Cobra Commander. DNA from the world's most ferocious animals has been combined with humans to create a virtually unstoppable army of venom troopers. Led by Duke, Heavy Duty, Scarlett and Snake Eyes, the heroic G.I. Joe team fights this new menace in a battle to save humanity. Amazon.com Hasbro's perennially popular soldier boy G.I. Joe returns in a new CGI adventure that packs enough adventure to please longtime fans of the '80s animated series (on which this feature is based) and newcomers to the Joe universe. In Valor vs. Venom, the villainous Cobra Commander organizes worldwide abductions in order to fuel Cobra's latest global domination plot--an army of super-soldiers created from genetically altered humans and animals. When the Joe team's leader, General Hawk, is kidnapped, his second-in-command, Duke, rallies the troops to save their leader and stop Cobra's nefarious scheme. Despite the outlandish plot (even by G.I. Joe standards), Valor vs. Venom delivers what Joe's audience wants: lots of combat using a variety of high-tech weapons and gear and carried out by a cast of valiant heroes and hissable villains. The CGI animation, while a bit stiff, allows the filmmakers to pitch Joe's adventures on a grander scale, and the film's epic scope includes battles on every point on the globe (though concerned parents should know that the violence is very tame). --Paul Gaita Additional Features Unfortunately, the extras on the DVD are a bit dull compared to the feature: the making-of featurette is mostly comprised of talking-head interviews with the filmmakers, while the promotional guide to the G.I. Joe trading card game goes into laborious detail to explain the game; more interesting Joe info can be found in the character bios and a storyboard-to-film comparison. --Paul Gaita
