This was a good remake with new people and of course the action. I agree with a couple of other comments made. It was sort of a rush through the movie. It didn't give the viewer much time to get the players. Had a different ending than the original movie. Good acting and directing. I don't know if Red Dawn 2 could come about and start where it left off but it's possible. I think if I was a producer I would consider it.
From this movie and the original a viewer should come out and even though this could never happen. Patriotism should be reenergized, which is something is sadly missing with most Americans.

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.

Should have never done a remake of this classic. Bad acting and b list actors make this a waste of your time and money. If you have to see this wait for DVD. Rating 3 out of 10.

If you're going to sit through this movie, be prepared to suspend your disbelief and forget all about reality. The action was interesting but not much else. Action movies need to realize that they don't always need to force the requisite romance into every movie. But damn did Josh from Drake & Josh grow up!
