This version was much better than the first. It was well written. Even though I'd seen the first version and knew the story and characters, there was still suspense. This version connected on a more emotional level than the first. The acting was much better than the first. I hadn't planned on going to see it at the theater, but I'm glad I did. It's worth it, even if you saw the first one. I think this may the first remake that I actually like better than the first.

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.

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 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.

Such a realistic plot and a great action movie, that is Red Dawn. Amazing cast, with Chris Hemsworth and Josh Peck playing brillantly off each other, great chemistry, add break out newcomers that could very well be huge stars themselves like Peck and Connor Cruise. Josh Hutcherson picked a great movie to follow up The Hunger Games and has solidfied himself as an action star. This movie is for fans who like violence, and fans of the old verison but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.
