New G.I. Joe Trailer And Clip Show Just How Embarrassing Those Power Suits Really Are

A decent-sized clip, plus a new trailer for GI Joe, showed over at MTV... and hoo boy. Real American heroes? Not so much. They look like funny monkey-climbing CG puppets that stick out like a sore thumb. But wait till you see more of their set ups...

I'm going to have to go ahead and give them major props for having a character drive a motorcycle, in the rain, wearing sunglasses, that come off to reveal a horrible scar... whilst driving through a graveyard. I mean, it doesn't get any more melodramatic than that. See, he's sad because he's surrounded by dead people, and he's wet. I wish they would have just left the whole suit thing out from the get-go, so true moments of terrible movie-making, such as said graveyard scene, wouldn't be eclipsed by the general out-of-place feeling the suits give off.

Can someone explain to me why Cobra operatives are kicking the butt of GI Joe when the Joes use those retarded suits and Cobtra people are not? So basically the Joes are so lame they need power suits to keep up and still cannot even save the freaking Eiffel Tower?
