Right Smack dab in the middle of World War 3

What I like about this movie is it shows A different outcome then most Cold War going Hot movies, and I would like to compare this to another movie made in the 80s, and I was not around during the Intense times, so I may not know what I am talking about, but their is this other movie called The Day After which was made A year before Red Dawn, and of course in that everyone gets Nuked and Humanity is on the brink of death, now in Red Dawn, as A part in the movie explains how nukes were still used, but not enough to destroy the world, limited exchange, and I think that makes for A better WW3 movie, yeah it probably would have not gone down that way during those times, but massive use of Nukes is the cowards way out, and in this movie, it shows pretty well how people dragged into Conventional Conflicts are feeling and the morale in society during times of War and occupation from a foreign enemy, and I like how it showed how even the invaders, at least some of them were feeling the effects of A War, You should just watch to see what I'm talking about. really good show

Fear mongering propaganda

On the surface this seems like a great action film about a group of teens who are forced to save themselves and their loved ones. At it's core though this film is fear mongering propaganda to scare people into believing the US is weak and the only solution is to arm yourself and beware of foreigners. It's message is subtle but clear once you break down all of the details. The film begins by stating that the US has become weak and isolated because of it's ties with NATO (foreign socialists took handouts from America and bled us dry). Mexico becomes a communist nation (Build That Wall!!!). The US is invaded by Soviets & Cubans (dirty commies and Hispanics). The first casualty is a teacher who also happens to be the only black person in the film (educated liberal). The teacher is killed when he tries talking to the invaders (that's what you get for negotiating with the enemy). The invaders find a list of gun sales and use it to track down and arrest people (a gun registry is just a way of hunting down and persecuting gun owners). The town mayor collaborates with the enemy (you can't trust the government). A downed US pilot reveals the invaders came through Mexico and Alaska (told you we should have built that wall and didn't a VP nominee tell us she could see Russia from her house?). In the end the enemy is defeated and America is saved but that was never the point of the film. It's real purpose was to convince us that foreigners are bad, liberal policies are dangerous, guns should never be registered and you can't trust the government. It's message is loud and clear.

Millenialls wont get this movie but it's still great

I have seen so many reviews who think the plot is ridiculous and the message is bad. Anyone who thinks it was ridiculous was born after 1990 I guarantee. At the time, it was not far fetched, but most kids today say "who cares about when it was released, it's stupid to me". How naive. Please don't comment on things you know nothing about. This was not far fetched at the time. It was a huge stretch, but not impossible. I don't comment on the plausibility of movies in the 60's, so please do not judge movies that were released before you were born. You don't know me, but trust me, this was not far fetched in 1984. Now I am sure people think we were just idiots if we think this was possible, but again, if you were not alive then, you have no clue what it was like then, so please just shut up.

I know most on the left are used to movies that make war out to be horrible, and guess what? So does this one. While it's patriotic, it also shows the enemy as human, and war is fruitless. But it also shows it's OK to love your country. I don't know why so many hate this movie, simply because there is a love of country. Yes it's over the top. But it seems that most movies from Hollywood with war must show how bad America is and how bad war is to be considered "good". Sorry it shows people will fight for America. Unfortunately, this movie seeems to fall into the left hates it and the right loves it. It is so much more than that. Your politics will decide if you like this it seems, but try and get past that, and enjoy this. It is a deep movie with multiple messages. You will want to fight for America after this if it comes to that, but you will also pray for peace. Too bad so many just use their political views to judge this movie, because it has something for both sides and it really is a wonderful movie if you can move past picking apart a few unlikely scenarios. So many who claim to be "enlightened" sure are close minded with this film. And the music is incredible too btw. Best score in a non Star Wars movie in along time. Get past your politics and try and enjoy it.
