Stop comparing to the original masterpiece, and you should enjoy this do-over as much as I did. However, if you're obsessed with comparisons, you will be disappointed and should probably save your money for something else.

Just plain bad.

Having watched the original Red Dawn many, many times, my expectations were set high up. I was expecting to see the same movie with better FX and new actors. It was not the first movie, redux. Not at all. The story has appealed to a couple of RD1984 moments, and of course the general idea of some young folks that found themselves in a position in which they had to decide to fight or to submit to foreign armed invaders that, without warning, parachuted themselves into an All-American town. The combat scenes were more realistic that those on the original versions, and the outcomes more credible. The end...go check it out by yourself. Expect the unexpected. Great movie. Fast paced, action packed, it feels shorter than it actually is. I sincerely recommend.

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!!!!

Good movie but could've had a better ending. The guy from Drake & Josh shouldn't have been in there or at least not the main character...that was just wierd. He's definitely too old to have played the part of a teen.
