Not What I Expected

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!

It isn't the original

Red Dawn was a pretty good movie. If you are expecting the original film you'll be disappointed. The story follows a pretty similar plot line, but it does not go as deep as the original. Thanks to modern technology, though, the special effects were better. Worth seeing as the story line is still good, but you'll be disappointed if you are waiting for everything in the original to happen again.

We watched the remake of red dawn yesterday, did not realize that that time went by. A little different from the original, but worth the money.

Wolverines!!!

My 18 y/o son and I REALLY liked this movie. As both of us are huge fans of the original, (I saw it in the theaters) we went in with mixed emotions. Boy were we pleased! They did a great job of paying respect to the old while clearly making a new movie. Good acting, direction and cinematography that kept you at seats edge and a plot that was MUCH better than we expected and plenty of action. The two actors cast to play the brothers (Jed and Matty Eckert) were very likeable and interesting. The three "new additions" to join the wolverines group later in the movie were a GREAT touch! Exciting and realistic gun play rounded out what every fan of this type of movie wants to see. There is ZERO DOUBT that we will be buying this when it comes out on DVD. But....as serious Red Dawn fans, we just might go see it again in the thearers just for the memories!
