Did not suck!

Red Dawn did NOT suck. They kept the spirit of the original and modernized it. It's still not better than the original but it came close and I liked it a lot even with the changes they made, there are little things from the original that you'll see. Oh, get this kiddies, it's WAY OPEN for a sequel. I think they want to do that so we can see what happens after the conclusion of the original. BTW, "The chair is against the wall"

North Korea (smaller than Florida and total population about 125% that of Florida) invades and wipes out the entire US military in one day. Local teens are the only ones left to defend the entire civilized world with deer rifles and shot guns. Not much dialogue, poor acting but lots of bangs and booms. The screens writers must have been really bombed, LOL.

Forget about it

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.

Red Dawn

Lots of fairly believeable action. Not a cinematic masterpiece, but quite entertaining.Also it is sobering in that if forces one to face the fact that our way of life actually rests on rather fragile underpinnings, and cannot be taken for granted. It doesn't surprise me that the critics don't like the movie; they disapprove of anything violent, or what they perceive as mindless patriotism. They tend to be generally "progressive".

Red Dawn - mindless entertainment

If you want to see a movie just to see a movie then see this one. Don't get me wrong - it was entertaining but as with a lot of movies in the semi-patriotic, hurray for our team genre this one stretches reality and has the typical plot lines. I saw this movie with another guy friend and it was fun enough for a saturday at the movies but that is the jest of it.
