So I finally watched the new remake of the original and I was disappointed. The jed character was done we'll but the Matt character sucked until the very end. I'm not sure but it seemed very short as well and you didn't really get to know any of the characters like the original either.
I haven't seen it yet but your review doesn't surprise me, you just cannot replace Swayze and Sheen.
Hemsworth was good. Josh peck sucked and ruined the movie
The fact that they remade it is ass lame as it gets. kind of like re making Conan... Did any of you see that abomination? The most laughable part was the BIG fight scene at the end and puny Conan saved the girl and she hung there for a minute or so....... my point is that Arnold would have pulled her up and gotten her pregnant by the time baywatch pussy finally saved her...
I have mentioned this before but the first time I watched Red Dawn I was maybe 16 years old. I vividly remember being up late on a school night and the program guide had it mislabeled as "Fire Birds" some shitty Nic Cage movie where he is a helicopter pilot. It sounded like a fun action movie to end the night.
I remember thinking for the whole first hour, "I can't wait until Cage and Tommy Lee Jones get in here and kill all these damn Russians."
At a certain point I figured it out it was something else and couldn't turn it off.

I was going to rent that tonight,loved the original .
I would say check it out for yourselves. Josh peck did suck. I can't believe they casted him because he's a whiny bitch. Maybe they did that because they are wolvereenies and they knew to make it real they had to be whiny bitches.
There are some cool parts, and the jed character was really well played but Matt eckert(Josh peck) ruins the movie. He does seem to have a couple of redeeming parts towards the end but he kept me wanting to see him get killed most of themovie.
If the first movie was a five star this one is generously is a three.
Oh yeah and the Robert character was only so so as well. I guess todays actors and the kids they are supposed to act as are similar to what todays kids are in the first place. Soft whiny bitches
Time and change will surely (truly) show

Why would you watch a re-make of that stellar movie? Re-makes SUCK! I've never watched one and said it was better than the original and hence have never watch a re-make since.
Idk maybe I'm just a masochist and I get off on being disappointed. It makes sense actually since I grew up a bungals fan...
Will not watch the remake.
Watch this trailer and understand that when this movie came out a lot of kids went to bed at night still thinking this was the night the commies launched. you will never be able to recapture that tension. The set of this movie wasn't some movie lot. It was the psyche of half the kids iof the country.
Trailer for the 1984 classic Red Dawn. Avenge Me!

Man I can think of a bunch that were better right off the top of my head. 3:10 to Yuma, Little Shop of Horrors, Oceans 11, The Fly, The Italian Job, Disturbia, Night of the Living Dead...I could go on. You'd be surprised how many movies are actually remakes.
Yeah I agree the original was much better. I remember being a young boy and we always worried about the Russians. I guess today it's apropos that the n Koreans have just told us they wanted to nuke us.
That trailer was great and it looks like they cut some other great scenes out of the.original that I wish they'd have kept.
