This movie was awesome. For all the reviewers who thought this movie was crap, don't listen to them and go see it. For all those reviewers that don't like this movie due to some new type of liberalism, they must be either communists or un patriotic Americans. Don't be afraid of seeing this movie and rejoicing in your American patriotism.
Bottom line: suspend disbelief and enjoy this movie!! Opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one and those who don't like my review, I seriously think you need to revisit what it means to be a citizen of the United States and pull your head out of your a**!

I read all the reviews before seeing it and they all compared it to the original, so I tried to watch it without comparing. It was still bad and it doesn't even compare. It was cheesy and they did all this work at the end which didn't even seem to fit with the rest of the movie. No acting, no emotion but somewhat entertaining.

It's a must see movie that can actually happen in real life, never know. Life are full of surprises! Very good movie, the old red dawn 84' and this one!

My 18 y/o son and I REALLY liked this movie. As both of us are huge fans of the original, (I saw it in the theaters) we went in with mixed emotions. Boy were we pleased!
They did a great job of paying respect to the old while clearly making a new movie. Good acting, direction and cinematography that kept you at seats edge and a plot that was MUCH better than we expected and plenty of action. The two actors cast to play the brothers (Jed and Matty Eckert) were very likeable and interesting. The three "new additions" to join the wolverines group later in the movie were a GREAT touch! Exciting and realistic gun play rounded out what every fan of this type of movie wants to see.
There is ZERO DOUBT that we will be buying this when it comes out on DVD. But....as serious Red Dawn fans, we just might go see it again in the thearers just for the memories!

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.
