'Red Dawn' Vs. 'Red Dawn': Is The 1984 Film Better Than The 2012 Film?

'Red Dawn' Vs. 'Red Dawn'

On Nov. 21, 2012, a movie titled “Red Dawn” was released into movie theaters. On Aug. 10, 1984, another movie with the title “Red Dawn” was released into movie theaters. Both movies are about a small group of American freedom fighters, called the Wolverines, fighting back against an invading foreign army. Here, we compare the Cold War-era sorta-classic to the sorta-new (“Red Dawn” was filmed in 2009), revamped version that you probably won't see. (Spoilers ahead, if you care.)
