G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Plot hole: Even if someone would make all nuclear powers launch their nuclear missiles and then destroy them you still wouldn't have a nuclear weapons free world as most of those nations have plenty of nuclear weapons in reserve. A lot would be even be armed and ready to go for a possible second strike.

Plot hole: Storm Shadow is disguised as Snake Eyes when captured. They still think he is Snake Eyes when transporting him to the prison. But he is still in his full body suit of armor. Doesn't really matter what prison you're going to, even so, this is the one for maximum security and houses Destro and Cobra Commander. It is not logical in the least for them to not have removed his body armor before even putting him in the prison transport, especially seeing as how easily his mask was removed when inside?

G.I. Joe: Retaliation mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Duke and Roadblock are playing video games in Roadblock's house, Roadblock's kids come up and start messing with Duke. They knock Duke's headphones off and comment about his big ears. But then Duke stands up with them on his back and his headphones are on his head again. The next shot, they vanish.

Trivia: After Storm Shadow kills the last ninja guarding Zartan, Zartan knocks over a bunch of crates. Right after he does this, pay attention to the wall behind Zartan: you can see the logo there of the Umbrella Corporation, from the Resident Evil series.

Trivia: After the Joes retrieve the nuke, they have a site setup in the desert getting ready for "extraction." Flint calls Mouse "Tiny Tim." Joseph Mazello who plays Mouse was also in Jurassic Park, in which his name was Tim.

Trivia: During the raid on the summit, a team of soldiers runs past Lady Jaye. One of them can be heard shouting "Follow that ground team!" This quote is directly lifted from Transformers: Dark of the Moon when the soldiers in that movie are about to attack the Decepticons. It is definitely Josh Duhamel's voice, indicating Paramount reused this piece of audio.

Question: General Joe says he wants some of his own men in the mission. You see them when they are making the plan and the are other old men. They don't really do much if anything during the actual battle. Who are they?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: They are probably other retired Joes.

Question: After the first Pentagon scene, the G.I. Joes are on drop ships flying to go get a nuke. Who are the other Joes in the ship with Duke, Roadblock, Mouse, Flint, and Jaye?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: I believe three are named as Grunt, Clutch and Tunnel Rat in the script and credits.

Question: Zartan asks the real president where the prison is where Cobra Commander and Destro are held. But didn't Zartan take the president's place at the end of the first movie, before those two were captured between films? So if that is something that would be told to the president, wouldn't Zartan already know? Or is this a major plot hole?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Zartan is assuming the identity of the President. He doesn't have access to every single piece of information that the President knows. That's why the real President is kept alive in the case that Zartan needs information he doesn't know. Zartan can only do so much to look like and act like the President, but he has no idea about top secret information such as that. As for why Zartan would wait so long to free Cobra Commander and Destro, either that was part of Commander's plan, or Zartan has his reasons.
