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.

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 Kick's A++

I saw the original several times throughout the years and it is right up there with it! I was a little hesitant at first with this re-make when I heard it was only 93 minutes long and the original was much longer! One thing it did is take out a lot of the dead space, meaning the boring parts! This movie is non-stop action and well worth the money to go see in the big theater! They should have used China as a realistic scenario for bad guys, I felt they were trying to be politically correct by using North Korea which seemed to me NOT so realistic with today's events.

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

Red Dawn

It was a typical modern-day action flick. Lots of explosions, shaky-cams, overly stylized people in gritty situations. Entertaining in some spots, cheesy acting in others. Still better than other movies in its genre. Wait for it to come out on Netflix or DVD.
