  • The new Red Dawn's body count is as high as its predecessor's. But the fatalism in all of Milius' projects - even the silliest ones - has weight. That's not the case with the remake, whose portrayal of violence derives more from video games than from history. show more

  • Hobbled by a laughably bad script and a uniformly uncharismatic cast. show more

  • This version is unlikely to strike a similar chord with young audiences while severely disappointing older fans of the original. show more
