Complete Storyline and information about Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins
A loner (Henry Golding) who calls himself Snake Eyes is accepted into the ancient Japanese ninja clan Arashikage after saving the life of its heir Tommy (Andrew Koji). Now his martial arts training continues and he finally gets what he has always been looking for: a home.
But the clan also demands a great deal of loyalty, and as secrets about Snake Eye’s past come to light, he must prove his honor and allegiance anew – even if it means perhaps losing those closest to him. In particular, the terrorist organization Cobra with the dangerous Baroness (Úrsula Corberó) thereafter escalates the situation.
Background and info on Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins
Following G.I. Joe – Secret Mission Cobra (2009), G.I. Joe: The Reckoning (2013), the spin-off Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins tells the origin story of the eponymous character from the franchise that once took Hasbro toy figures as a basis for plenty of action. In its release, Snake Eyes thus overtook the third part, G.I. Joe: Ever Vigilant, which was originally supposed to appear before it.
While Snake Eyes was embodied by actor Ray Park in the first films, he did not return for the prequel. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura justified this not least with the fact that the actor was too old in the meantime.
Actor Andrew Koji, who played the character of Storm Shadow in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, openly admitted that he had not liked the two prequel films and was therefore initially hesitant to accept the role of the Arashikage heir. (ES)
