SBM (Dawn of many sequels)
Red Dawn 2012 is a decent modern day adaptation of the 1984 classic. Dialog and relationships are as weak as you remember, making room for relatively tense action scenes. Marvel comics potential influence is an ironic underpinning, with the hero role played by Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and his gang of rebels taking on the moniker "Wolverines". Yes, I know that falls in with the original story, but the irony cannot be overlooked.
I left feeling a bit cheated. Just as the action gets rolling the film ends. In fact, the last inspirational speech was extremely poor.
