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.

Far beyond my expectation!

Having watched the original Red Dawn many, many times, my expectations were set high up. I was expecting to see the same movie with better FX and new actors. It was not the first movie, redux. Not at all. The story has appealed to a couple of RD1984 moments, and of course the general idea of some young folks that found themselves in a position in which they had to decide to fight or to submit to foreign armed invaders that, without warning, parachuted themselves into an All-American town. The combat scenes were more realistic that those on the original versions, and the outcomes more credible. The end...go check it out by yourself. Expect the unexpected. Great movie. Fast paced, action packed, it feels shorter than it actually is. I sincerely recommend.

So Bad On So Many Levels

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!!!!

Wait for pay per view

There was a lot of action. The story was just ok. You get sucked into the action before you really know anyone though. Ending kinds sucked. I would wait for this to come out on pay per view.

I read all the reviews before seeing it and they all compared it to the original, so I tried to watch it without comparing. It was still bad and it doesn't even compare. It was cheesy and they did all this work at the end which didn't even seem to fit with the rest of the movie. No acting, no emotion but somewhat entertaining.
