The family looks out onto the streets as the dramatic events of that time unfold. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Rojo Amanecer (Red Dawn)
Study the event behind the movie and then watch it, probably one of the most depressing endings I've ever seen but the movie does a good job at capturing the mindless and heartless actions that occured during the Night of Tlateloco, 10 days before the Olympic Games in Mexico City, 1968.
The thing that really hinders the deep storyline is the acting, it suuucks. The first half of the movie, slow, but if you are familiar with the event it is a good buildup to a crazy second half of the film.
