A city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky - shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerrilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

Red Dawn was good entertainment with a memorable lead character, who was enduring to the audience. I'm not one who seeks out violent movies, but Red Dawn had an adequate amout of 'violence' in that citizens of the Pacific Northwest were at war with the invading North Koreans all the while establishing character story-lines that were intriguing.
Red Dawn is one (if not the) best movie of this entire year. It has the perfect amount of action & emotion put into it. It is not a remake of the original version, but a revise set to fit America and its foriegn relationships today. I recommend everyone who loves war, action, & even politics go see this!
