The 2012 remake of Red Dawn is not the worst movie of the year, but it has little going for it. Directed by veteran stunt coordinator Dan Bradley (Spider-Man 2, The Bourne Legacy), this action movie stars a bevy of young actors, angry Chinese people disguised as North Koreans, and a lot of action-packed sequences.
This film is a remake of the 1984 Red Dawn, which starred Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen as two teenagers who were part of a group of high-schoolers that bound together to fight against a foreign military that invaded their hometown. In similar fashion, Bradley’s version follows the story of a group of teenagers who survive a massive foreign invasion, and escape into the woods where they train to fight the enemy.
