Movie review: Red Dawn

Red Dawn

Red DawnThis movie was beyond unbelievable – and not in the good way. The acting was slightly above mediocre. In my opinion the only saving grace was that there were a few decent, not great, action scenes.

Chris Hemsworth is one of my favorite actors. He’s certainly not the best but he is entertaining and very easy to look at. He had to carry the rest of the cast of Red Dawn and that was a job beyond even his powerful presence. I can’t imagine how bad this movie might have been had it not been for his influence.

Josh Peck, who played Matt Eckert, ruined the movie for me. His acting was terrible and I couldn’t stand his character. The casting in this film was way off base.

Josh Hutcherson did a fair job. He has the funniest scene in the movie. Let me rephrase that, he has the only funny line in the movie.

All in all I wouldn’t recommend this movie to anyone and if you feel that you must see it then I’d suggest waiting for the DVD. There’s nothing in this movie that begs for the big screen.

Grade: D-

About The Peetimes: The movie isn’t very long so there’s just the one peetime. I tried to find other peetimes but nothing else worked well enough to be used.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Red Dawn. (What we mean by Anything Extra)
