Wolverines Suck!

This movie is offensive rehash that does the original no justice. This film did not explore the survival aspect of living under occupation at all. It was all just a rehash of the silly tricks of the old movies. One trick after another, those pesky North Koreans, and when they screamed Wolverines, it made me cringe how cheesy and dispassionate the wooden actors were. I am sorry to say that Conner Cruise is not ready for prime time, he is as bad as Jayden Smith in that they both could be the worst up and coming actions stars to date. Keep coaching him dad, I am sure he will improve as much as you have over the last 20 years. Had to be one of the worst movies I have seen in a while, the director sucks he could not direct a cat in a paper bag.

RED DAWN Kick's A++

I saw the original several times throughout the years and it is right up there with it! I was a little hesitant at first with this re-make when I heard it was only 93 minutes long and the original was much longer! One thing it did is take out a lot of the dead space, meaning the boring parts! This movie is non-stop action and well worth the money to go see in the big theater! They should have used China as a realistic scenario for bad guys, I felt they were trying to be politically correct by using North Korea which seemed to me NOT so realistic with today's events.

if you would have made a modern day remake of the old story i would have appreciated it a lot more. And whats with the whinny kid from Nickelodeon? You ruined a cult classic. Missing critical scenes and its a completely different plot line.

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

BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL

I don't know what the critics are whining about - like usual they have bombed an excellent and entertaining movie. I liked this better than the original - it's updated and more believable. A fun ride - I saw it twice. I do agree with one viewer here who complained about the shaky camera work - mounting a camera on somebody's head then having them go running through the woods just makes me carsick. I had to take dramamine to watch this movie. However, I loved it enough to go back!
