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!

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"

Actually pretty good!

Despite what critics are saying, Red Dawn was actually a surprisingly good film! It varies significantly from the original in a way that makes it fairly unique for a remake. There were only a couple scenes that I was drawn back to the original film. This is not an oscar award winning film by any means but it was well thought out in my opinion and the graphics and war scenes seemed fairly well designed and plausible. The acting in the film was not terrible and with the story varying a bit from the original it was actually fairly suspenseful and not as predictable as one may think. They did a great job in modernizing this classic movie and if you are in to action films with similar themes than you should definitely give this movie a chance!

No storyline and cheesy!

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!

Inspiring Movie

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.
