Proud to be an American

While I don't think that anyone is expecting too much from this remake, you shouldn't been disappointed with it when it's over either.As far as have the meat and potatoes to a decent action movie, it has it - along with a nice patriotic punch that few movies seem to carry these days. You have your straight-up action, which is good and not too cheesy; you have your hot chicks, with Adrianne Palicki being overlooked terribly too often in this arena; and you have your poor excuse for character development. Here's where Red Dawn actually has the advantage that many recent action films have completely looked over: patriotism. This movie has a real-life, common enemy in North Korea. There's no ambiguity like Hollywood enjoys so much to do these days, trying to make good guys seem bad or vice versa. There is a clear-cut team of good guys and bad guys and it's awesome. I may never go out of my way to watch this film again, but I can guarantee that I'll sit through it years from now on TV.

I enjoyed this movie, but it's not for kids though, and I can't compare it to the original because I've never seen the original. The action was good, and Josh Hutcherson gave the best, funniest performance. A definite recommend.

I actually thought it was a good movie. it does kinda apply more to the "younger" veiwers, (like me..) but my dad is in his late thritys and says the same thing. there is some language, but its a really good action movie to go and watch, my little brother didn't have any problems, and he is about 10.

THE OLD RED DAWN WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES-JUST COULD NOT SEE HOW THEY COULD DO IT JUSTICE. GUESS WHAT THEY DID A WONDERFUL JOB!!! IT IS AS GOOD OR BETTER THAT THE ORIGINAL. I REALLY DID ENJOY IT AND WOULD PROBABLY GO AND SEE IT AGAIN!! CHECK IT OUT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.

This movie would've been great except for the fact that Josh Peck is the main character. They could've done so much better. I was a little disappointed.
