(MAN SPEAKING KOREAN)

JAYE:
Hustle up, guys.

You've got to get that defector

and get the hell out of there. No delays.

Hey, Mouse, are you ready

with that 18-year-old aim?

I'm on it, sir.

ROADBLOCK:
Move. Let's go.

(WHISPERS) All right, come on.

Where is this guy at?

Come on, come on, come on.

Come on, come on, come on.

(MAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

All right, Mouse. Give us that diversion.

(MAN SHOUTS)

(WHISTLE BLOWING)

Let's move.

Flint, stay put.

(MEN SHOUTING INDISTINCTLY)

(GRUNTING)

Anyone ever tell you you fight ugly?

Not from their backs, they don't.

It's just... (GROANS)

Flint, let's go. Flint?

What the hell are you doing?

FLINT:
Just marking our territory, sir.

Private Gaines,

if you see Flint, shoot him.

With pleasure.

(MAN SPEAKING KOREAN)

Defector in hand.

En route to pickup. Come on.

I don't see him, do you?

(SOLDIERS SHOUTING IN KOREAN)

JAYE:
Flint, get your ass

back to the team.

We are on the move.

Uh, you ain't gonna

believe this, Roadblock.

(SOLDIERS SHOUTING IN KOREAN)

Mother...

(ALL SHOUTING

IN ENCOURAGEMENT)

ALL:
Yeah!

What?

No, no, no, no. No, no, no.

Unfair advantage.

I'm better.

He's got smooth cheeks.

He's got no facial hair.

- I'm gonna pull the pin.

- There's less friction underwater.

That's a foul. That's a foul.

(LAUGHING)

ROADBLOCK:
A Joe flag.

A G.I. Joe flag.

FLINT:
That was a nice touch, right?

Yeah. You can call it that.

And what would you call it?

- Undignified.

(LAUGHING) - Yeah, that, too.

You know in victory,

we should be gentlemen.

ALL:
Oh!

- Hey, Jaye!

- Yo!

How long can

the average man hold his breath?

Ninety seconds.

ROADBLOCK:
- Free hand.

- You got it, boss.

All right. Easy, Flipper.

Mmm.

Back. Damn, that's good.

(COUGHING)

There's nothing wrong

with taking a victory lap. It's fun.

This is how it works. G.I. Joe's a fist.

Us, we're the knuckles.

How do we strike?

Together.

A finger strays...

- It gets broken.

- It gets broken.

Knuckles, again? Really?

As a friend,

you've got to get a new speech.

And the next time

you want to drown somebody,

just invite me.

(ALL LAUGHING)

NARRATOR:
Since the end

of the nanomite wars,

Captain Duke Hauser now leads

Joe Tactical Operations.

Under Duke's command are Roadblock,

Lady Jaye,

Flint

and Snake Eyes.

The ruthless terrorist known

as Cobra Commander,

and Destro

have been captured by the G.I. Joes

and placed in

a maximum security prison.

But the Cobra operatives, Storm Shadow

and Zartan, remain at large.

The unit and the world

remain on high alert following

Cobra Commander's final vow.

DUKE:
Retaliation.

The ear that sees.

An ancient Arashikage test.

(BLOWING)

Jinx, cousin to Storm Shadow,

it's time to prove that you are ready

to join the G.I. Joes.

(EXHALES)

Defend yourself.

I'm ready, Blind Master.

Ears, open.

Snake Eyes, your task.

Test her abilities.

Pluck a single hair from Jinx's head.

(COMMANDS IN JAPANESE)

Ah, good.

One should be as nimble as a cat,

yet fierce as a tiger.

(LAUGHING)

Snake Eyes wins.

Jinx, in order to excel in war,

you must first find peace.

Snake Eyes,

you have earned the Blade of Justice.

Made of black carbon fibre.

Cruel. Indestructible.

There are rumours of a new attack

by our enemies.

You must leave the dojo to uncover

these plans and stop them.

But move swiftly.

You may already be too late.

(GUNFIRE)

ROADBLOCK:
Contact front!

Contact front!

Heavy enemy fire! I need you to bring

them up the line. Bring them up the line.

DUKE:
Check that, Block,

but I can't, man.

I'm taking rounds back here.

ROADBLOCK:
I need you!

I need you now!

Air strike! Call in an air strike!

(STAMMERS) Wait. How do you call in

an air strike?

- Jesus!

- Can I bring...

What about one of those, like,

care package thingies?

ROADBLOCK:
I'm bleeding out

and I need you to sprint.

Can you use a care package thingy?

I can bring you one.

A care package thingy?

Who is shooting me? What is...

I'm bleeding out right there and you're...

Are you spinning?

You got to cover 360.

- You're spinning.

- Huh?

How could you be so good at combat?

You stink at this.

I think you need to relax.

I believe I outrank you,

- last time I checked.

- Not in my house, you don't.

(GIRLS SCREAMING)

(GIRLS LAUGHING)

Oh! All right. Taking fire!

Enemy fire! Time out! Enemy fire!

(GIRLS LAUGHING AND TEASING)

(LAUGHING) Enemy contact!

Uncle Duke, you have big ears.

(LAUGHING)

You got a big head.

Come here! (GRUNTS)

Returning fire! What's up, now?

(GIRLS SCREAMING)

DUKE:
Returning fire!

(LAUGHS)

You can't scream your way

out of this one!

Yeah, requesting assistance,

brother Block!

Pinned down, brother Duke.

Pinned down.

That's all right. I got my boy here.

Demon dog!

(IMITATING BARKING)

(BOTH SCREAMING)

(LAUGHS)

TWIN 1:
Grandma, help us!

We need backup!

(GIRLS LAUGHING)

Not the first time you sent a girl

running out of the room screaming.

Not the first time

I sent two girls screaming from a room.

Dude, completely inappropriate.

- I'm just saying.

- Completely.
