Re: Red Dawn (2012) - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review Peter!

I must admit I liked the 1984 version - at least I got a feeling we were looking at teenagers who had done quite a bit of hunting. Well, a couple of them anyway....

When I saw the previews for this one, I just did not get the same feeling as for the original and immeadiately thought "pass".

I nearly bought this one sight unseen, thankfully I didn't! Thank you for the heads up on this one, Peter. Too bad Chris Hemsworth couldn't save this film.
Buying it would have definitely have been a $20+ mistake considering there are absolutely no extras. I think it may have something to do with the fact that this movie was actually made in 2009 and by the time it hit Blu-ray no one cared if there were any supplements. I wonder if Hemsworth would have made this movie after he made Thor?

I watched this movie last night and I agree its the kind of movie that you turn your brain off at the door however it was fun and the surrounds were used really well in this movie I also liked some of the LFE. I got it for $21 so in my opinion not an awful movie compared to some that have gotten better reviews that I have watched.
