Did not have this one in the collection, and after reading a comparison to the new one, bought it so the family could see the difference in the story line, versus the new Red Dawn. Red Dawn 1984, had a cast that was mostly unknown at the time, now look at where they are. This Story was and is far more believable than the new one.
This movie is a sham! Another Hollywood financial rip off.. Save your \"hard earned\" money and buy the \"original\" (1984) RED DAWN movie. The 2012 Red Dawn movie is a pathetic excuse for an action movie and discredits the original 1984 movie by attempting to mimic it . (Can anyone say \"political correctness\" gone awry?) I waited years for a sequel to the 1984 Red Dawn only to be duped by purchasing this movie. I could hardly maintain any interest in watching it..
This movie felt like Papillon but with a less interesting story. While Papillon was a nightmarish but interesting adventure, The Outsiders had a pointless chain of events that were equally depressing. It reminded me of the feeling I get while reading a book that is going nowhere page after page. The only respectable quality of this movie is the acting. I have not read the novel, and I have not seen the extended version of the movie. Maybe they are better. I do not recommend this version.
I love this movie. The original version of this movie left a lot to be desired. This movie really tells the whole story like the book. I really liked the acting and feel that this is a movie that can appeal to everyone from children to adults. If you have read the book I highly recomend you see this movie.
This movie is excellent. I gave it only 4 stars because there are some things in the videography that could be improved. The acting is excellent, the story amazing. It leaves you guessing until the end. For a girl searching for a father, this movie is perfect. The father figure in this movie helped me see God as the loving Father He is. The writer of the movie was not trying to portray that in any way, but it sure worked that way for me. In fact, God is not mentioned at all...but I guess when you look for Him everywhere, you find Him.\nI highly recommend this movie!
