‘Red Dawn’ Gets Updated More All-American Action and Less Drama

(CelebNMusic247) Finally, the long-delayed Red Dawn remake is here, and it immediately establishes a different tone from that of the 1984 original.

I saw the movie a couple of months ago and I have to say it is really good. The movie was filmed in 2008, before Chris Hemsworth (Thor 2/Avengers), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe 2), Isabel Lucas (Transformers 2) had made names for themselves. Plus the movie has a few more up and coming stars on the rise like Josh Peck (ATM), and Tom Cruise’s adopted son, Connor Cruise – Red Dawn(2012).

This film is a bit more gritty and dives into the action from the jump. Its a high-octane, action-over-substance re-imagining of the ’80s version.  Some of the memorable moments with Patrick Swayze and C. Thomas Howell have been changed up as well as the invading country who takes over the US.

In the original (1984)version which told the story of high school teens living in a small Colorado town that is, without warning, overrun by an invading  Soviet army. The high school kids parents and guardians are all trapped in internment camps, while a group of teens (led by Patrick Swayze’s character, Jed Eckert) abscond into the woods and form a rebel group called “The Wolverines,” named after their high school mascot.

Well that has all been change in this version of Red Dawn, especially with the invading threat is now North Korean strike force teat. In this version the start off with a Friday night football game establishing the teens and how small the town is. From there it goes to a local bar where we get some background on Chris Hemsworth aka Jed Eckert and Adrianne Palicki. While the set is put in motion, the city has a blackout, everyone heads home only to wake up to North Korea invading their town. From there it become a gritty fight to the death. The movie is a bit more realistic in this version and they don’t end up in the snow like the original.  They have switched up the storylines for the Lea Thompson (Erica) and Jennifer Grey (Toni) characters. In this remake Palicki takes on the Toni role, she more aggressive than Jennifer’s version and Isabel Lucas takes on the Erica role. I don’t want to give much away, but both of these girls do an amazing performance for what its worth.

In Red Dawn 2012, the Wolverine’s learn how to infiltrate into the city which has been locked down with guard stations. They get the city people to help them as they slowly take back their city and go after North Korea. The pace is set from the jump when the teens flee the city trying to stay alive. They have a car accident with the leader of the strike force which marks the lead enemy who is on a mission to do what ever it takes to find these kids who form a rebel group called “The Wolverines.”

Stunt coordinator Dan Bradley (Bourne 2, 3 & 4; Spider-Man 2 & 3) will be making his directorial debut with this remake. The movie is none stop action, gunfire, and explosions. Flip and watch the trailer to see what we are talking about…
