Editorial Reviews

Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), and Isabel Lucas (Immortals) deliver a full arsenal of pulse-pounding excitement in this explosive action-adventure! The unsuspecting citizens of Spokane, Washington, wake up one morning to the shocking sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky in a surprise attack on the United States. Soon the entire city is under enemy control, but a group of courageous teenagers has decided to fight back, by waging an all-out war against the invaders, to take back their town - and their freedom!

"Dude, we're living Call of Duty. And it sucks."

So says a character in Red Dawn 2012, succinctly summing up the movie. This film purports to be a remake of John Milius's 1984 cult classic about a group of American teens who band together to fight back against communist invaders but don't be fooled. In reality Dawn 2012 is a poor man's version of the Red Dawn inspired missions from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (where the Russians invade America).

Dawn 2012, like too many blockbusters, feels like a movie assembled by a committee to say nothing and offend no-one, to be as safe and commercial as possible. I am glad to say that in this case second guessing the lowest common denominator didn't pay-off and that Dawn 2012 flopped at the box office. The original Red Dawn isn't a perfect movie - the script is a bit disjointed and the acting could be better - but at least it has convictions. At least it takes some risks. At least it has a director who is passionate about the material (which he also co-wrote). And it shows in every scene of the film.

The original Red Dawn is a celebration of rugged individualism and ordinary people rising to the occasion; the remake, not so much. In Dawn 1984 the heroes are average kids. But in the remake the kids are led by a marine. In the original the characters live off the land as best they can. In the remake the group are never far from occupied civilisation and steal food from a miraculously open Subway. In the original as the war wears on the characters get dirty and get tougher. In the remake everyone always looks perfectly made up and no-one ever has to make any truly difficult decisions. The original is pretty damn cheesy and unrealistic in places, often endearingly so, but it's just as often shocking and provocative.

I almost did not watch this movie. But after renting Judge Dredd based on the large number of five star reviews it recieved, and deciding that it was not my cup of tea, I felt that perhaps I did not need to put as much stock in the opinions of others, even if those opinions are apparently shared by a number of people. Back to "Red Dawn" [the remake]. It is not that bad. Granted, it is different, both in terms of story line and character development than the original. After watching the remake, I also bought the original on Amazon Instant Video so I could watch them back-to-back and compare. The original does a better job at portraying the characters on a human level (at least for the Wolverines, but also for some of the bad guys such as the Russian Spetznaz commander and the Cuban Colonel). The remake falls short in terms of helping you identify with the characters. On the plus side, the story line of the remake is a bit more plausible (Marine on leave organizing a guerilla group rather than a recent high school graduate and former football star with no military experience). I had a hard time with the NORTH KOREANS invading until we learn that they had Russian help and that their toe hold is limited to the Pacific NW. Subtle (and not so subtle) links with the original movie appear within the remake (Drinking the Deer's blood for example). However, the remake treats other subjects (collaboration with the occupiers) quite differently. Overall, an adequate effort which deserves a bit more than some of these reviews may indicate.

Well I just got back from the Midnight movie of this film which is a remake of the 1984 original movie, Red Dawn, which had an all star cast consisting of; Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, Ben Johnson, Harry Dean Stanton, Ron O'Neal, and Powers Boothe. The setting for the 1984 film was a small town in Colorado when suddenly during a normal fall school day, Soviet, Nicaraguan, and Cuban troops parachute out of the sky and begin landing on the football field and throughout the small Colorado town. A few of the teenagers led by Patrick Swayze's character Jed, flee into the mountains and left to fend for themselves while the remaining towns people that were captured are forced to live at the whim of the invading forces. After a few short weeks of living in the mountains the teens are forced to make a decision on whether or not to fight or submit to the rule of the occupying forces. They decide and begin to wage their own guerrilla warfare against the invading Soviet troops.

Now I went into this movie being a very big fan of the original and had just recently re-watched it again, for perhaps the 30th or 40th time, in anticipation of this remake. So I would have to advise you, as you are reading this review, that perhaps I am a bit jaded and prone to favoring the original version of this film. Now having said that, I did like this film and I feel that it does the original version some justice, although this film just didn't seem to have the heart that the original film had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great remake of Red Dawn!
I watched the first Red Dawn and this was an amazing remake of the movie. The actors were as good as the original actors. I would watch again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad for what it is...
Typical action movie with one big named star in Hemsworth (Thor) and a b-level cast after that. Still, not bad. Video quality was excellent!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy
Pretty cheesy, Hemsworth was pretty good but, the rest of the acting was very lackluster. To bad, I loved the original when I was a kid.
