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.
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..
