Pretty good show

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.

Actually pretty good!

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

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.

Red Dawn

Pretty good overall....acting not as good as in original overall it gets a b- . If you haven't seen the original than you might think this one is great. Original movie is much better with the exception of the special forces guys that played in this one...these guys made it a little more exciting for about one second.

Being a fan of the original movie with Patrick Swayze, Erin Grey, Thomas C. Howell; I was excited to see it remade with today's graphics and special effects. I was SO disappointed. It was full of action, the actors were good, but the storyline was.....well there was none. It ruined the whole movie. Then when they tried to developed a storyline they went with the most implausible, cheesy one they would find. I mean, they went out of their way to make it bad. It was a waste of my night!
