“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” is wall-to-wall explosions — from nuclear all the way down to little fireflies that detonate.
There's also martial-arts fighting, swordfighting, submachine-gun fighting, bazooka fighting, tank fighting, fighting while hanging from ziplines and rappelling lines and airplanes and, in between just in case you start to miss the carnage, excessive macho posturing.
