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.

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.

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!

Despite what critics are saying, Red Dawn was actually a surprisingly good film! It varies significantly from the original in a way that makes it fairly unique for a remake. There were only a couple scenes that I was drawn back to the original film. This is not an oscar award winning film by any means but it was well thought out in my opinion and the graphics and war scenes seemed fairly well designed and plausible. The acting in the film was not terrible and with the story varying a bit from the original it was actually fairly suspenseful and not as predictable as one may think. They did a great job in modernizing this classic movie and if you are in to action films with similar themes than you should definitely give this movie a chance!

I liked it but I think the first one was better, C Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze and couple other young actors, being that it was a time of cold war and easier to believe such a thing could happen. The good stuff were the action scenes and cinematography, the bad stuff were the drama scenes after the battles. Oh ya one more thing, it might be more for young teens seeing that the plot, story had to do with high school kids.
