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.

Red Dawn - mindless entertainment

If you want to see a movie just to see a movie then see this one. Don't get me wrong - it was entertaining but as with a lot of movies in the semi-patriotic, hurray for our team genre this one stretches reality and has the typical plot lines. I saw this movie with another guy friend and it was fun enough for a saturday at the movies but that is the jest of it.

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!!!!

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.
