A bit unrealistic, but 70% of the movie is still cool.

Being a victim of circumstance caused me to view this movie, which I had no intention of seeing. 'Red Dawn' is the soulless, money grabbing remake that it was advertised to be. It's bad in every aspect. A poorly written story and severely underdeveloped characters are worsened by chopped-to-hell editing. Few scenes last longer than two minutes. This constant rush through a hole-filled plot leaves very little ever explained. I literally lost all interest during the beginning invasion. The only thing this lazy endeavor offers is laughter at it's incompetence.

Basic remake that sat on the shelf for so long that the (then rather unknown) Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson went on to become pretty big stars - but as far as the film itself, just a so-so action film and an underwhelming remake. I like the 80s version better - this adds nothing to the mix.

Pretty good. I think I'm partly biased though in favoring this movie because it has three of the hottest actors in it (Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson). It was a typical action movie. A little cheesy but not bad at all. I enjoyed it.

Won't spend much time on this however if you havent seen this version or the 80's one may i suggest the 80's version as at least it was the first. This update stole pretty much everything from the original and threw it into their film, no new ideas here folks.

Red Dawn (2012) When Washington state is invaded by North Koreans, a group of teenagers, led by a marine (Chris Hemsworth) who is home off leave, take matters into their own hands and start fighting back using tactics from the more famous insurgent groups of the past. This film lets the viewers down on almost every aspect including its horrible direction with action sequences done with camera work so shaky that, at times, you have no idea what is happening. Chris Hemsworth gives almost no emotional range in this film with his very wooden performance. The original film was fun and full of life, but this film is dull and boring. My Rating: You Would Have to Pay Me to See it Again
