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.

I liked it! I'd recommend seeing it. It's not the original, much more urban combat. And it's more action oriented where the original was more dramatic tension. That's not to say it's bad, I wasn't disappointed (But keep in mind that I set my expectations really low; I feel you have to whenever you see a remake.)
I could see quite easily the original characters being in these kind of situations. The names were the same. The characters were similar. There was enough different that it wasn't predictable. Oh, and the invasion actually began at dawn, which made more sense considering the title. :D

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!

North Korea (smaller than Florida and total population about 125% that of Florida) invades and wipes out the entire US military in one day. Local teens are the only ones left to defend the entire civilized world with deer rifles and shot guns. Not much dialogue, poor acting but lots of bangs and booms. The screens writers must have been really bombed, LOL.

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!!!!
