Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins ★½

Would you name yourself after the thing that killed your father? Snake Eyes did. The famous G.I. Joe’s new film opens with a flashback to his childhood, where a group of men capture his dad. They force him to wager his life on a game of craps. He rolls two ones; they promptly kill him.

It’s like Peter Parker deciding to become a superhero named Burglar-Man.
