"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.

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.

I'm not a fan of the original Red Dawn to begin with, but at least the director clearly cared about what he was doing with that one. Not the case with this remake. Then again, the only reason I got it was because I found it cheap and Josh Hutcherson is in it. Not even he can save this film for me though.

I'll be blunt: the performances feel stilted. The characters aren't even one-dimensional, they have no dimensions to speak of, and they're completely forgettable. Honestly, when people die in this film my reaction was one of, "Huh? Someone got killed? I don't even remember that character. What was their name again? Did they even have one?" Speaking of character, there is no character development to actually make me care about the cardboard cutouts I'm forced to watch for 90 minutes. The action is sub-par at best. The storyline is too absurd to be taken seriously and takes itself too seriously to be funny. The climax feels like it was ripped from a video game that was probably way more fun and interesting than this film. In the end you're just left feeling cold and used. Emphasis on the used. Even the $4 I spent to own this feels like way too much. I was robbed. And I'm not happy.

Bottom line: if you want Red Dawn, watch the original. Use the remake as a drink coaster. At least you'll get some satisfaction out of it that way.

I just came back from seeing this film in a theatre. I am a huge fan of the original Red Dawn, so I was anxious to see this one! This is an excellent movie, well acted by some of todays hottest young stars as well as some newcomers, and, if you have never seen the original, this movie can totally stand on it's own merit. That having been said, this movie just doesn't have the heart and soul of the original. They don't go as in depth with the character development, and they changed some key points, some of which, in my opinion, were what makes the original so great. In the original none of the kids had any military training. That was one of the things that made their accomplishments so great. In this film, the main character is a marine on leave. I felt that the deer hunting scene in the original was important because it explained Roberts complete charcter change. In the new film, the deer hunting scene is made into a joke, and I did laugh, but was sort of disappointed. The movies are basically hard to compare because they start with the same concept and then take it in totally different directions. I LOVE the original, but did enjoy this one. However, as with any movie, it is a matter of personal taste. I took my two daughters with me and one liked the original best, while the other prefers this film. Regardless it is worth seeing, and, if you haven't seen the original, I would highly reccomend you see it as well!
