I loved the original movie and own a copy of it but my wife was bored with it. This remake is soooooo much better! my wife even loved it. I love what they did with the story line. The only issue that I have with the movie is that it has way to much swearing in it. That wasn't needed to make this movie a good movie. Beware of the "F" word.

Not What I Expected

This was kind of a silly movie. The plot was not really that developed or believable. The idea that the North Korean military could successfully invade & occupy most of the United States is ridiculous. I would really like to see the North Koreans try to invade a state like Texas lol The plot never explains how all these Korean military units got into the US - except saying that an EMP & nuclear missile launch disrupted the "entire" infrastructure. It came across as a "B" rated movie with so-so acting & "cheesy" lines. I suppose if you're not expecting a somewhat plausible plot, this movie wouldn't be too bad. I found myself laughing most of the time - which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

It isn't the original

Red Dawn was a pretty good movie. If you are expecting the original film you'll be disappointed. The story follows a pretty similar plot line, but it does not go as deep as the original. Thanks to modern technology, though, the special effects were better. Worth seeing as the story line is still good, but you'll be disappointed if you are waiting for everything in the original to happen again.

We watched the remake of red dawn yesterday, did not realize that that time went by. A little different from the original, but worth the money.

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
