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'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

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!

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.

Great shoot-em up with lots of action and patriotism woven in. If you are a leftist....move on and go see the Life Of Pi. If you have red, white and blue blood watch it twice or more!
