Or if your date is in love with the star of this movie take her on date night. Otherwise, i saw the original and it was better. This move was not bad its just we have seen all this before. The good points are the main hearthrob in the movie is good. Real good...when he was on i was into it. When he was not on i kept thinking these are elite soldiers against kids and well you know...i saw it for free i walked out of the Collection...see that review..good luck

This movie is offensive rehash that does the original no justice. This film did not explore the survival aspect of living under occupation at all. It was all just a rehash of the silly tricks of the old movies. One trick after another, those pesky North Koreans, and when they screamed Wolverines, it made me cringe how cheesy and dispassionate the wooden actors were.
I am sorry to say that Conner Cruise is not ready for prime time, he is as bad as Jayden Smith in that they both could be the worst up and coming actions stars to date. Keep coaching him dad, I am sure he will improve as much as you have over the last 20 years. Had to be one of the worst movies I have seen in a while, the director sucks he could not direct a cat in a paper bag.

This film didn't stray far enough from the 80's version to thrill anyone who saw the original. The plot and characters were left largely undeveloped, and the ending was quite abrupt and clumsy, as if they ran out of budget and just decided to stop. Nice effects and action sequences helped to balance this, but an overall disappointment.
