Red Dawn

Welcome To the Home of the Brav


Red Dawn
A rather brain-dead remake of a 1984 rah-rah America! movie, this time using invading North Koreans instead of Russians and Cubans. After said Koreans amazingly manage to invade the USA, a group of high school friends band together and begin an armed revolt against the invaders, miraculously killing many of them without suffering any notable losses themselves. Go America! Reviewers were unimpressed.

95 minutes.

C. Fuchs quote iconThe film isn't great. Heck, it's not even good as most of the action scenes (which is what most viewers of this film will be wanting to see) are so clumsily shot (the shaky cam strikes again) and edited that it's sometimes near impossible to figure out what's occurring; the plot logistics don't stand up; and the acting is so-so at its best moments.

Tomatometer quote iconThe rebooted Red Dawn lacks the original's topicality, but at least pays tribute in delivering the same short shrift to character development and general logic.
