In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky - shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

Hollywood needs to get some original ideas.
I mean, we pay these fools MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, and this is what they give us?
One morning in a regular American town, the people wake up to an invasion from the North Koreans and everything is taken over. A small band of people get away and head up towards the mountains and former Marine, Jed trains the group of teenagers and leads the group known as the Wolverines. I waited for the DVD of this movie because at first I thought "oh no, not another remake", so when I finally did watch it on DVD I had zero expectations, but I really liked it, so I ended up ordering the Blu-Ray/DVD combo set and I've watched it a few more times since. I don't understand the bad reviews this movie gets, I think it is just as good as the original and without spoiling anything, the ending wasn't as dark as the original which is another thing I liked. All around this is a good movie, so if you like action / war movies, watch it!

I rented the RED DAW HD. Once again this story is made into a new movie. This is about thirty years after the first version. Both are good, but this is a happier ending than the first one. I personally like the idea of some survivors rather that just a plaque. When the USA is invaded by foreign countries paratroopers, a group of high school students, known as the Wolverines, go into hiding and fight the enemy using guerilla warfare on their home turf.
Recommendations: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,Under Siege/Under Siege 2, and The Sum of All Fears
However, no where close to the original. The premise of the plot was too far fetched, the actions of the characters was too Hollywood, and it was not very believable. Chris Hemsworth was the only character in the movie that did a good job of acting. The other actors were mediocre and totally miscast. Lastly, the ending was a total let down.
This was a guy flick. Don't expect the ladies to sit through the whole thing with you.
