    Original was better, but they did a good job with this one for sure.

    At least they kept the original cast characters names in the new one. That was pretty cool

    i liked it, cool gunfights, story changed just enough to stay interesting and less predictable.

    For a remake it was ok. They hit some minor areas I felt bad were missed in orig. You have to suspend belif to enjoy it.

    The original was better because it was "original". The new one is better with all the cooler guns.

    And why is it that the black mayor had to be the betrayer? I thought that Hollywood is all through with stereotyping black people as the bad guys?

    Wasn't the mayor Hispanic in the original movie? Also Danny wasn't black in the original.... :)

    I didn't like it. All I could think about was that idiot played in Drake and Josh. Why in the heck did they cast him in Red Dawn.

    Wow. The new one must REALLY be garbage, if it isn't even as good as the original.

    Because the original movie is pretty damn lame.

    If you watched the the original when it first came out, it was pretty darn good for the times. Now, watching it I would have to agree with you.

    It felt like an abridged version. It could have been good but fell short.

    It took me 3-4 days and 7-8 showers to wash the stupid off me that Red Dawn 2012 contaminated me with... Vapid, uninspired and boring. One of my worst movie ever picks.
