Red Dawn - The look of the film was good, but I thought it fell far short of the original in getting the viewer to connect with the characters. I did not have an emotional connection with any of the characters, the chemistry between the brothers was seriously lacking, and I wasn't even close to tearing up over any of the losses suffered by the group. It has been quite a long time since I last saw the original, but I thought when I watched the first one that I had a grasp of the hardship that the group was going through living in the woods away from the comforts they were used to. I didn't get that sense in this film. I also had a hard time swallowing that North Korea could just pop in and take over, even if they did have some sort of vague "help" that was alluded to in the movie. It wasn't terrible, I just didn't think it was very good.
