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.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra will be in theaters on August 7th.
