The original can't hold a candle to this version.
Here's a remake that they should of left alone. Some of the more important scenes were left out or changed for the worst. I challenge anyone who liked this movie to watch the original and say it wasn't better than this cheap remake.
If there was an option to give absolutely no stars, than that's what this movie deserves. Who ever came up with the idea of North Korea invading the USA, and who ever even allowed it to go into production should be shot on sight. Can somebody explain to me how the hell would they be able to just bypass the most powerful Navy, and Air Force in the world? They probably used teleportation technology. This is got to be one of the worst, and stupidest movie ever made. I'd rather sit trough the most boring seminar, than suffer trough this movie one more time. If I had a time machine, I would test it out, to unsee this garbage.
There were no plot to the story at all, the movie was highly unrealistic, everything happened so quickly it felt like the movie was just a big rush. The movie had a great potential to be great but it turned to be a big disappointment
Completely unconvincing in every way. Bad story, bad acting, bad message. Don't waste your time or money.
Wait, rent it when available.
finally saw RD in hopes of finding redeeming depictions of who's INCLUDED as good-guys as part of Wolverines young homeland rebel defenders. NONE. Only one odd East-Asian American, born here, got to play a peculiar US Marine (1 of 3 older adult Marines), clearly East-Asian looking BUT named SMITH. Ironic Obscurity. WHY NOT add few stereotypes going negative-to-positive: e.g. a local-born Chinese food delivery boy delivers Chow Mein and a few semi-automatic weapons (act of heroism) to the Wolverines and later gets caught and executed? Why NO Chinatown seems to exists in Red Dawn West-Coast America to draw such characters from!? how odd! Opp wasted even if imperfect
Some movies should just never be remade. This was by-far one of the worse movies I have ever seen. casting was all wrong, acting was shameful, and they totally destroyed the previous movies legacy.
