    “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” should more aptly be titled “Average Joe.”
    Unless a sequel comes many years after it’s predecessor, it usually retains most of its cast. This is not the case with the new “G.I. Joe” flick. The characters and events differed so much it has the feel of its own stand-alone movie.
