Being a former service member I was very impressed by the technical aspect of this movie. I also believe they protrayed the scenerio of an ivasion, the current events included in the movie, and resistance that might be encountered by an enemy were very acurate. I must say the action in the movie was very realistic, the acting not so bad, and they stayed pretty true to the original movie. Over all it was a great movie! I haven't been to a movie in a theatre for at least four years and I went and saw the midnight showing. Great over all movie!

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"

It's a pretty good movie. The idea of the US being invaded and it's citizens having to defend it is scary but makes for a good story. Plenty of loopholes and some things weren't explained. The original is still a classic and still my favorite but this one isn't so bad and it's worth watching.

Great shoot-em up with lots of action and patriotism woven in. If you are a leftist....move on and go see the Life Of Pi. If you have red, white and blue blood watch it twice or more!

If you're going to sit through this movie, be prepared to suspend your disbelief and forget all about reality. The action was interesting but not much else. Action movies need to realize that they don't always need to force the requisite romance into every movie. But damn did Josh from Drake & Josh grow up!
