The latest trailer features more of the bromance between Snake and Storm Shadow after Golding’s iconic ninja commando saves the latter’s life and we even get to see a hint of Storm Shadow enlisting for the dreaded Cobra Organization.

I’ve heard the negativity surrounding this film and the changes that were made to the mythology of the characters and I’m still on board. After all, if creator Larry Hama is on board and even suggested that the changes were necessary, then I think we can give it a shot. The footage has looked amazing so far and the cast is in top form especially our two leads. The choreography from Kenji Tanigaki (the Rurouni Kenshin franchise) is hyperkinetic and it looks absolutely thrilling. As a life long Joe fanatic and even more Snake Eyes freak, I’m reserving my judgement until I view it but it’s looking good from my end thus far.
