1.5 stars“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” (PG-13): The sequel to 2009’s “The Rise of Cobra” brings back the G.I. Joe band of fighters — and Channing Tatum, for a while, along with new addition Bruce Willis. Then the focus shifts to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as he leads several Joes in the “Retaliation” part of the equation after an act of betrayal orchestrated by the bad-guy Cobra organization. “Overflowing with helicopter gunship assaults, armored vehicle assaults and a seeming infinitude of assault weapons, ‘Retaliation’ seeks to equal, if not surpass, the high-caliber excesses of ‘The Rise of Cobra,’ ” says movie reviewer Soren Andersen. “Mission accomplished.”
