The Rock Quotes Jay-Z In Horrible/Awesome Super Bowl Teaser For 'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation'

“Whatever deity may guide my life/Dear Lord/Don’t let me die tonight” — Jay-Z/R. Kelly, “Don’t Let Me Die”

Yeah, okay. Invoking Jay-Z to bring some coolness factor to your movie/trailer is kind of cheap, but hell, it also works. The Super Bowl spot for “G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation” has arrived it has caused acrimony within the Playlist offices. Some are scoffing the movie looks completely dumb. While offers will concede that point but also add that sword-fighting on mountains and motorbikes that turn into bombs and Bruce Willis saying “Call me Joe” are all points in its favor. It’s been a rough afternoon around here.

All this to say, the Jon Chu directed sequel doesn’t know an actoin sequence that doesn’t require someone flipping or spinning around and that’s not necessarily a criticism. At any rate, it can’t be worse than ‘Rise Of The Cobra’ can it? ‘Retaliation’ opens on June 29th. [via Collider]
