This was a great movie. Lot's of action, but a good plot and story line too. Very well made, good acting, and a believable story. ?The audience all clapped after the movie and several people yessed, "Go America!"
Highly recommend you see this movie. Ignore the overly sensitive critics. If you want to ben entertained and uplifted, this is the movie.

The movie was entertaining even with some technical problems with the plot and development of the story.
The original was not the best movie ever made but it did a better job with developing the characters and story. It was just more believable

I really liked it; big fan of the original. Although I thought it was really good, I thought it was a bit rushed. The original allowed you to get to know the characters better. This one was just action packed with a bit of an unrealistic viewing. I'd see it again though.

I don't even know why this remake was made. This movie was just terrible. From the lack of character building, the lukewarm plot, and the horrible ending speech. If I wasn't waiting on my meal, since I saw this at fork & dine in Grapevine, I would have walked out. Moreover, come on Hollywood, there are too many great upcoming writers out here. Please,give them a chance, so that the American people can see fresh, new exciting movies again.

I liked it! I'd recommend seeing it. It's not the original, much more urban combat. And it's more action oriented where the original was more dramatic tension. That's not to say it's bad, I wasn't disappointed (But keep in mind that I set my expectations really low; I feel you have to whenever you see a remake.)
I could see quite easily the original characters being in these kind of situations. The names were the same. The characters were similar. There was enough different that it wasn't predictable. Oh, and the invasion actually began at dawn, which made more sense considering the title. :D
