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!!!!

Being a fan of the original movie with Patrick Swayze, Erin Grey, Thomas C. Howell; I was excited to see it remade with today's graphics and special effects.
I was SO disappointed. It was full of action, the actors were good, but the storyline was.....well there was none. It ruined the whole movie. Then when they tried to developed a storyline they went with the most implausible, cheesy one they would find. I mean, they went out of their way to make it bad. It was a waste of my night!

Like the first Red Dawn, this one is inspiring with a lot of action. I enjoyed it even though I couldnt' figure out how the bad guys, the North Koreans, could have invaded the north west coast and taken over? I understand Russia and/or China doing that but North Korea? I guess they couldn't use Islam or Russia as the primary villians.

I'll have to say I started this movie not really liking it, but when the whole thing finally got started I was hooked. Don't let the beginning make you leave trust me it gets better

This movie was awesome. For all the reviewers who thought this movie was crap, don't listen to them and go see it. For all those reviewers that don't like this movie due to some new type of liberalism, they must be either communists or un patriotic Americans. Don't be afraid of seeing this movie and rejoicing in your American patriotism.
Bottom line: suspend disbelief and enjoy this movie!! Opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one and those who don't like my review, I seriously think you need to revisit what it means to be a citizen of the United States and pull your head out of your a**!
