Red Dawn
Plot / Synopsis

In a suburb of Washington, brothers Jed (Hemsworth) and Matt (Peck) Eckert, along with a group of their friends, look to save their town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers. They hide in the surrounding woods at the Erkert's family cabin and there they train and reorganize themselves into a guerrilla group of revolutionaries. A USAF pilot, Lt. Col. Andrew Tanner (Morgan) reveals that North Koreans have used an EMP satellite to take out the power grids throughout the states, crippling the entire nation, so Jed makes a plan to steal the controls of their new weapon and use it against them. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, and band together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

Just like the 1984 Red Dawn, the 2012 Red Dawn uses the same what-if scenario. That what if one of their country's considered worst enemy invades their much beloved nation. Well all hell breaks loose especially if you put a group of teenagers in it... say whuuuut?

There are a number of ways that can make a soldier out of anyone. Besides patriotism and nationalism, one powerful force is family. Red Dawn used all of those. A different generation calls for a different Red Dawn. This time its not the Russians, but the Asians... specifically North Koreans. I don't know what to feel about this idea of using real world nations depicting them as villains in films. Well, given that they might really be that vile or up to no good, I don't know if it is really appropriate to play on these sensitive themes. These kinds of films can stir up various emotions if it does what it is meant for. Red Dawn maybe considered a propaganda, a sick joke, a provocation, or purely just entertainment... it really depends. But anyways, if you are an action film fan or any of the cast included in the film, or curious about this 2012 remake of the 1984 Red Dawn. Then this might be worth the shot.
