Not bad for a remake

I was concerned, because I loved the original! Although, I hated that the female characters were really effing weird in the original. As for the new version - I really liked it, and my boys (14 and 11) loved it! Some of the things I wished had happened in the original were actually done with the newer version (like stronger, less oddball characters). It's definitely a good update!

This movie is, at best, okay. Mildly entertaining. The characters have no personalities, and the actors are dull. The action mostly seems to take place on the same block, every single time. Loved the original Red Dawn; this is a bland imitation. The war makes even less sense than the one in the original did--which is hard to do.

I waited FOUR YEARS for this movie and it did NOT dissapoint!!! It was not asviolent as the original but it was more than just a resistance to occupation from an invading army than the first. It had a 'secret mission' imbedded in it that made it better than the first. The ending was not as bleak as the first either which was a welcomed change. The acting was appropriate because they were gawky teenagers and they acted as such. How would teenagers fight in a situation like this? GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!! I hope they make a trilogy out of it becasue it is certainly worthy of it!!!!

I really liked it; big fan of the original. Although I thought it was really good, I thought it was a bit rushed. The original allowed you to get to know the characters better. This one was just action packed with a bit of an unrealistic viewing. I'd see it again though.

This movie has to be my all time favorite movie ever! The excitement was great and even though it's kinda sad it's funny at the same time
