Great shoot-em up with lots of action and patriotism woven in. If you are a leftist....move on and go see the Life Of Pi. If you have red, white and blue blood watch it twice or more!

Red Dawn did NOT suck. They kept the spirit of the original and modernized it. It's still not better than the original but it came close and I liked it a lot even with the changes they made, there are little things from the original that you'll see. Oh, get this kiddies, it's WAY OPEN for a sequel. I think they want to do that so we can see what happens after the conclusion of the original. BTW, "The chair is against the wall"

It's a pretty good movie. The idea of the US being invaded and it's citizens having to defend it is scary but makes for a good story. Plenty of loopholes and some things weren't explained. The original is still a classic and still my favorite but this one isn't so bad and it's worth watching.

Lots of fairly believeable action. Not a cinematic masterpiece, but quite entertaining.Also it is sobering in that if forces one to face the fact that our way of life actually rests on rather fragile underpinnings, and cannot be taken for granted. It doesn't surprise me that the critics don't like the movie; they disapprove of anything violent, or what they perceive as mindless patriotism. They tend to be generally "progressive".

North Korea (smaller than Florida and total population about 125% that of Florida) invades and wipes out the entire US military in one day. Local teens are the only ones left to defend the entire civilized world with deer rifles and shot guns. Not much dialogue, poor acting but lots of bangs and booms. The screens writers must have been really bombed, LOL.
