I bring up the movie Red Dawn for two reasons. The first is that we’ve never mentioned it before and it’s a really cool movie from the 80s. The other reason I mention it is because for the first time in a long time I actually think this is a decent movie to do a remake of. And it’s simply because the concept is timeless and in today’s day and age this could be an awesome flick if done right. The new movie is set to release this November and involves Korea. Personally I don’t think it’s going to be good but I guess we’ll see if Chris Helmsworth can carry the movie. As far as the older one, here’s the plot.
It is the dawn of World War III. The U.S. and Russia are on the brink. Out of nowhere comes an attack on U.S. soil. In mid-western America, a group of teenagers bands together to defend their town, and their country, from invading Soviet forces.
The bottom line is that this could potentially happen anywhere and at any time so the premise is definitely set. The older movie from the 80s starred Patrick Swayze, C Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, and Charlie Sheen, and Jennifer Grey. Check out the trailer below….
Definitely an 80s movie worth watching.
