Dir. Robert Schwentke
Starring: Henry Goulding, Andrew Koji and Haruka Abe
Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing something he's been longing for: a home. But, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes' honor and allegiance will be tested -- even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him.
Andrew Koji, as Storm Shadow, is the standout of the entire cast.
The production design is very well done, especially the Arashikage castle.
The first act is very efficient. Sets up the story quickly, creates the bond between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, and dives into the G.I Joe lore.
Henry Goulding is horribly miscast. Probably even losing his chances of ever being cast as James Bond.
The film never explains why Snake Eyes is so good at martial arts, like Ninja level good.
The romantic bond between Snake Eyes and Akiko comes out of nowhere and makes very little sense.
Snake Eyes betrayed the clan thousands of times, but using a magic rock to kill your enemy is apparently a worse offense.
The Maggufin is dumb.
The villain can destroy or kill anything by the power of will, but when he has all he ever wanted in front of him, he decides to monologue and delegate.
The final fight is incredibly stupid, from the dialogue, to the fight choreographies, to the shot selection; everything seems made by a child.
What a disappointing endeavor. Snake Eyes dumbs down the content in every way; the story is fine and it hits the usual beats, but the execution is so horrific that you leave the movie theatre scratching your head, wondering where it all went wrong, and the conclusion is simple... you can't make a good movie out of a bad script.
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
¾ cup cold lard , cubed
¼ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
¼ cup ice water
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb(s) ground pork
1 lb(s) ground veal or beef
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 bay leaves
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
½ cup beef or vegetable stock
½ cup breadcrumbs
TIP: Cook the filling early! Tourtière bakes best when a cold filling is added to the pastry shell. It’s your best protection against the dreaded soggy crust. Cook your meat filling a day in advance and refrigerate it overnight. (You can also make your pastry in advance, chill it, and roll out as needed.)
In a large non-stick frying pan or pot heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, 1 minute. Add ground pork and veal and cook until no pink remains, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Drain off any excess fat and add the spices, bay leaves, Worcestershire, salt and stock. Stir in breadcrumbs and cook until almost all the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove bay leaves, taste and reseason with salt (if necessary). Let cool and refrigerate overnight, if possible.
