The Story of G.I. Joe Movie Review


While the little-seen The Story of G.I. Joe has long been heralded as a great among war flicks, it's tough to find anything all that original or particularly memorable in its story. Reminiscent of the last half of Full Metal Jacket, the movie traces a winning war journalist (Burgess Meredith) as he follows an infantry platoon through WWII. He bonds, they fight, many die. Heavily honored (the film was released while the war was actually still being fought), its staid manner is a little sleepy today.
