Good movie, could've been a LOT better!

This movie would've been great except for the fact that Josh Peck is the main character. They could've done so much better. I was a little disappointed.

I enjoyed this movie, but it's not for kids though, and I can't compare it to the original because I've never seen the original. The action was good, and Josh Hutcherson gave the best, funniest performance. A definite recommend.

THE OLD RED DAWN WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES-JUST COULD NOT SEE HOW THEY COULD DO IT JUSTICE. GUESS WHAT THEY DID A WONDERFUL JOB!!! IT IS AS GOOD OR BETTER THAT THE ORIGINAL. I REALLY DID ENJOY IT AND WOULD PROBABLY GO AND SEE IT AGAIN!! CHECK IT OUT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.

Despite what critics are saying, Red Dawn was actually a surprisingly good film! It varies significantly from the original in a way that makes it fairly unique for a remake. There were only a couple scenes that I was drawn back to the original film. This is not an oscar award winning film by any means but it was well thought out in my opinion and the graphics and war scenes seemed fairly well designed and plausible. The acting in the film was not terrible and with the story varying a bit from the original it was actually fairly suspenseful and not as predictable as one may think. They did a great job in modernizing this classic movie and if you are in to action films with similar themes than you should definitely give this movie a chance!
