    Stay away from the Red Dawn remake!

    Alright, I confess, when I first saw the original Red Dawn in theaters back when I was an impressionable teenage boy, it got my blood pumping and made me think about what I would do in a similar situation. Never mind that the situation in question (a land invasion of the USA) was patently absurd and could never take place, logistically speaking. I frickin' LOVED that movie, super intense over-acting, crazy violence and all.

    And now, THIS movie.

    The fact that it was shot in 2009 and has gone un-released ever since should probably tell you everything you need to know about this poorly thought-out remake to a movie that neither deserves (it's no classic) nor requires (and yet it still holds up) a remake.

    Oh, and even though special effects help to make Chris Hemsworth into a tolerable THOR, he fails utterly in bringing the kind of passion and charisma Patrick Swayze brought to the original in 1984

    I say give this one a miss.

    I love the original but I'm not gonna risk watching the second. I hear that it completely ruined it for most people.

    HOLY SHIT LOL! Look in the new trailer when he says "are those airliners?". The f***ing planes are moving side to side. They cant even do CG right. What a joke of a remake!!

    They made a big deal about Tom Cruise's son Connor being in the film. It sank without much of a trace.

    The 1984 original was not the first PG-13 rated movie (as I long thought). "The Flamingo Kid" was, but "Red Dawn" was released first.

    I totally agree. The Red Dawn remake was not even worth a $1 red box rental.
