SNAKE EYES – When Hasbro Productions tries to do a Marvel concept, their superhero concept becomes a bore to watch. “SNAKE EYES – ORIGINS”, now in theaters, stars Henry Golding, who suits this action figure hero, but that is all about it. The film mixes too many things in this action film, with mythology and anacondas that are larger than life.
The story starts off when he is a young boy who is in a safe house with his father. His father was a secret agent, who had ninja skills. When he sees his father murdered, he follows in seeking the ninja skills to protect himself. He then grows up and ends up doing weapon smuggling for a Japanese cartel at a fishery dock. Only when things get out of hand, he saves a fellow guy from being killed and becomes his loyal bodyguard. But for how long can he be in his shadows, and protect this family?? He then becomes a Ninja cadet for this Japanese ancient dynasty community, and is known as “Snake Eyes”.
Now many adversaries like “Cobra” want him finished. And G.I. JOE organization needs him as well. The film goes on many plots, but it seems “Snake Eyes” is an independent agent who likes defeating anaconda snakes.
