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.

Surprisingly Good Remake

By Cacowboy

This was a good remake with new people and of course the action. I agree with a couple of other comments made. It was sort of a rush through the movie. It didn't give the viewer much time to get the players. Had a different ending than the original movie. Good acting and directing. I don't know if Red Dawn 2 could come about and start where it left off but it's possible. I think if I was a producer I would consider it. From this movie and the original a viewer should come out and even though this could never happen. Patriotism should be reenergized, which is something is sadly missing with most Americans.

Not Happy

Should have never done a remake of this classic. Bad acting and b list actors make this a waste of your time and money. If you have to see this wait for DVD. Rating 3 out of 10.

Pretty good show

I enjoyed this movie, but it's not for kids though, and I can't compare it to the original because I've never seen the original. The action was good, and Josh Hutcherson gave the best, funniest performance. A definite recommend.

Red Dawn

Pretty good overall....acting not as good as in original overall it gets a b- . If you haven't seen the original than you might think this one is great. Original movie is much better with the exception of the special forces guys that played in this one...these guys made it a little more exciting for about one second.
