Forget about it

Stop comparing to the original masterpiece, and you should enjoy this do-over as much as I did. However, if you're obsessed with comparisons, you will be disappointed and should probably save your money for something else.

So Bad On So Many Levels

poor acting; zero character development; poor directing... while the original was ambitious...it benefited from having some young actors that delivered.... and the directing gave a broadness and depth to the fighting and what was at stake....this 'remash' does none of this.... save your money!!!!

No storyline and cheesy!

Being a fan of the original movie with Patrick Swayze, Erin Grey, Thomas C. Howell; I was excited to see it remade with today's graphics and special effects. I was SO disappointed. It was full of action, the actors were good, but the storyline was.....well there was none. It ruined the whole movie. Then when they tried to developed a storyline they went with the most implausible, cheesy one they would find. I mean, they went out of their way to make it bad. It was a waste of my night!

Inspiring Movie

Like the first Red Dawn, this one is inspiring with a lot of action. I enjoyed it even though I couldnt' figure out how the bad guys, the North Koreans, could have invaded the north west coast and taken over? I understand Russia and/or China doing that but North Korea? I guess they couldn't use Islam or Russia as the primary villians.

I'll have to say I started this movie not really liking it, but when the whole thing finally got started I was hooked. Don't let the beginning make you leave trust me it gets better
