G.I. Joe: Retaliation

This script includes some jabs toward North Korea. Do you think entertainment like this makes any difference to real-world political relationships? During the Cold War literally hundreds of movies featured countries behind the Iron Curtain as enemies—is today any different?

G.I. Joe is based on a toy marketed by Hasbro. Is this movie appropriate for children of the age most likely to play with the toy?
