Exacerbated Patriotism, but Watchable and Entertaining
In Spokane, Washington, the population is awake by a North Koran invasion with paratroopers. The marine Jed Eckert (Chris Hemsworth) and his brother Matt Eckert (Josh Peck) escape with a group of friends to an isolated cabin in the woods. They witness the cruel Captain Cho (Will Yun Lee) executing their father and they decide to form a resistance group named Wolverines fighting against the invaders.
In 1984, "Red Dawn" was a cult movie for people of my generation. This contemporary remake is dumb, with exacerbated patriotism and funny lines. I laughed a lot when Jed explains that the invasion of Iraq was right since they were the "good guys", but the invasion of his country is an absurd since the invaders are the "bad guys". But forgetting this type of blunder, the action is watchable and entertaining. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Amanhecer Violento" ("Violent Dawn")
