This was kind of a silly movie. The plot was not really that developed or believable. The idea that the North Korean military could successfully invade & occupy most of the United States is ridiculous. I would really like to see the North Koreans try to invade a state like Texas lol The plot never explains how all these Korean military units got into the US - except saying that an EMP & nuclear missile launch disrupted the "entire" infrastructure. It came across as a "B" rated movie with so-so acting & "cheesy" lines. I suppose if you're not expecting a somewhat plausible plot, this movie wouldn't be too bad. I found myself laughing most of the time - which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

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.

poor acting; zero character development; poor directing...
while the original was ambitious...it benefited from having some young actors that delivered....
and the directing gave a broadness and depth to the fighting and what was at stake....this 'remash' does none of this....
save your money!!!!

For starters Chris Hemsworth - Jed Eckert, was the only decent actor in this entire movie,
Josh Peck - Matt Eckert was so obnoxious and the character development of Matt Eckert was so terrible that every time I had to sit through his teenage angst, high school lover, throw his friends under the bus, garbage acting I got overly enraged and wanted to walk out. Far cry from Charlie Sheen. Another part greatly disliked by me, was the many rediculous plot holes. "We know where they are, so lets carpet bomb them while they are under ground and not even surround the place so that 90% of them can escape". "Oh, lets place a tracker on one of them, then attack only one of them in the building, let all the others escape, then not follow them with air support so that they have enough time to realize the tracker was placed and leave the tracked man behind" " I was a marine, that means that I have special forces knowledge on Russia and can tell by what cover they are wearing that they are spetznaz"
