Red Dawn 2012

Set against the backdrop of contemporary politics, the film begins with an American withdrawal from Iraq. The President decides to redeploy troops to Taiwan, where escalating Chinese militarism is threatening America's ally. At the same time, he also welcomes the former Soviet republic of Georgia into NATO, unleashing Russian worries that America is spreading its sphere of influence deep into Eastern Europe. Having destabilized relations with two of the world's largest powers, the President then claims that the U.S. is only partly to blame for a global economic meltdown, further escalating tensions with China and ultimately leading to the invasion of the Pacific Northwest. While the scenario is far-fetched, China's occupation of America carries several elements that seem oddly plausible. Soon after their arrival, the Chinese invaders put up dozens of inspirational posters. One shows a red mallet smashing the U.S. Capitol under the title "Defeating Your Enemy." Another shows a selection of doughnuts, proclaiming "Obscene Choice. A Weapon of Mass Distraction." Above all, the theme of the invasion seems to be that America's economic woes have led to its overthrow and that the Chinese invaders will help the country to recover its economic footing. One poster, for example, depicts a red-clad worker beating a dollar sign under the slogan "Repairing Your Economy."

Red Dawn Movie Review by Shannon (4/10/2013)


This movie has some heart but if you know anything about military tactics you'll need to suspend disbelief or you just won't enjoy the film. This will likely appeal to some youth who feel they are not doing enough with their lives and want proof that they can when older generations muck up the world.
