Storyline

The city of Spokane, Washington is awakened by a North Korean paratrooper invasion. Marine Corps veteran Jed Eckert and his civilian brother, Matt, escape with a group of friends to an isolated cabin in the woods, where they witness the execution of their father at the hands of the ruthless Captain Cho. The brothers unite with their friends to form a guerrilla resistance group--the Wolverines--to drive the invaders from their home. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not a bad movie, not a good one either
22 September 2013 | by emmanuel-mg-87See all my reviews

The movie deliver what promises, it's a regular entertaining action movie, the plot is believable as possible, they don't explain too much about how the invasion of north-Korea to the states happened so its not about of how possible or by what means it could happen, the movie focuses on what happens after the invasion, from the point of view of a group of teenagers.

Besides of being forgettable, there's just 1 big problem whit this movie, and is the casting, in particular Josh Peck, just seems that the part was too much for josh, he "performs" without any kind of acting skills, and looks fake all the time., he's a really bad choose for a leading role.

So i'll rate this movie with 5 or 6 over 10, not more and not less.
