    It has some big shoes to fill compared to the original. I hope it's good!

    I really liked the storyline of that game and it's author (john milius who did red dawn) but the graphics just sucked! Looked like a PS2 game. They should have got Infinity Ward or someone with talent create the actual game.

    The original is classic 80s, Cold War-era stuff. Somehow, I have a feeling this remake is gonna piss all over the original's legacy with shoddy acting and unbelievable characters.

    Well, sorry to disappoint anyone, but this film was not filmed in Spokane, nor anywhere in the PNW -- it was filmed in the city I grew up in, Detroit, Michigan!
    Blkbear and (deleted member) like this.

    ...and horrible computer generated effects that, IMHO, keep any action flick off my radar these days.

    Avenge me boys!

    One thing that stood out in the previews I've seen is the wolverines using ARs. Huh? The original showed them starting with traditional hunting guns and using what they got off the russkies/cubans they killed.

    Sure. But if they were picking up weapons off killed north koreans to keep fighting I think it would be mostly AK variants and RPGs (are they still using those)?

    "What's happening ?" Duh...Sure as heck not a practice jump...:laugh:

    Interesting concept, but where was Air Defense Command while all of these juicy
    targets (Troop carriers) were inbound? That and a high level jump into a combat
    zone? Give me a break! Sure make dandy targets. Why not just land at Fairchild,
    if it's still open....;)

    They should have made it muslims instead of north koreans, that would surely get someone fired up. :laugh:

    Hey! Let's remake Red Dawn because our actors are better than Patrick Swayze and the rest of the cast and we can write better than Jonn Milieus! Right!!! When it comes out on tv I'm giving it 15 min.

    WOLVERINES!!!

    Hope they still use that, its a classic. Nowadays, writers would probably use chipmunks or salamanders so as not to be too violent... :)

    The movie has been in the can for over two years. They had to digitally change the enemy to North Korea. Originally it was supposed to be the Chinese...

    Not trying to hurt any feelings, but I was around for the original, and even by the standards of the day I thought it was mediocre at best. I really wanted to like it but a lot of the acting was just terrible. I seem to remember the plot being a bit silly and most of the special effects being sub-par.

    Looks like the new one will have an even weaker plot:
    Red Dawn (2012 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Right, because making the plot even less believable will make the movie "smarter".:rolleyes:
