‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Trailer 2

The second trailer for John Chu‘s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” trailer was released today, and looking at it I think that the filmmakers need to be careful to remember that this movie is based on toys from Hasbro.
I mention this because Stephen Sommers‘ original film appeared to be more cartoony than its sequel.
By the way, the last film Chu did was “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” and “Step It Up 2: The Streets.”
Now, not that I don’t like to give people a chance, but where in his resume does it indicate that he can handle a massive action film?
Just wondering, though since I am asking questions: Why is it that any movie that features a character that uses a bladed weapon, like knives or throwing stars, is guaranteed to have a slow motion scene with the aforementioned weapons flying toward their target?
Because I would, just once, like to see someone step aside, in real time, because they’re moving way too slow to actually hit anyone.
I mean, I get that it looks cool, but it’s also getting JUST. A. BIT. OLD.
In defense of the sequel, they got rid of the non-functional mouth in Snake Eyes‘ mask, as well as that bizarre mask that Cobra Commander had in the last film.
