Not to be Taken Seriously

If you're going to sit through this movie, be prepared to suspend your disbelief and forget all about reality. The action was interesting but not much else. Action movies need to realize that they don't always need to force the requisite romance into every movie. But damn did Josh from Drake & Josh grow up!

Far beyond my expectation!

Having watched the original Red Dawn many, many times, my expectations were set high up. I was expecting to see the same movie with better FX and new actors. It was not the first movie, redux. Not at all. The story has appealed to a couple of RD1984 moments, and of course the general idea of some young folks that found themselves in a position in which they had to decide to fight or to submit to foreign armed invaders that, without warning, parachuted themselves into an All-American town. The combat scenes were more realistic that those on the original versions, and the outcomes more credible. The end...go check it out by yourself. Expect the unexpected. Great movie. Fast paced, action packed, it feels shorter than it actually is. I sincerely recommend.

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.

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.
