Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is among the hottest actors in Hollywood. Now, a virtually forgotten film that helped construct his profile is streaming on Hulu. Johnson is a franchise staple today. He lades huge studio motion pictures like Jungle Cruise, Jumanji, and the upcoming DC Comics movie Black Adam. Early on, the wrestler turned actor was a riskier proposition. Still, his charisma and built-in fanbase gave him a knack for restoring viewers’ curiosity in flagging franchises. The first instance was the Fast & Furious, which he joined as Luke Hobbs in Fast Five. That’s a job he’d reprise in sequels and, ultimately, the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff reverse Jason Statham. After Fast Five, Johnson helped enhance the G.I. Joe franchise by taking part in Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. That film is now streaming on Hulu.
Critics broadly panned G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The movie carries a 29% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes. “Though arguably superior to its predecessor, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is overwhelmed by its nonstop action and too nonsensical and vapid to leave a lasting impression,” following the positioning’s vital consensus. The movie fares solely barely higher with followers, sporting a still-rotten 48% approval score. At the field workplace, G.I. Joe: Retaliation earned $375 million worldwide on an estimated $130–155 million finances.
