Certainly a silly Conservative leaning product of its decade, but one that still holds cache as a fun and exciting bit of escapism...

Controversial, bloody 1980s WWIII film with teen heroes.

Released in the midst of renewed Cold War nuclear dread, Red Dawn doesn't starve for unintended wackiness.

When it was released in late summer of 1984, it was a big hit, which shouldn't come as a surprise; this was the year when Reagan won the presidency in a landslide, and if nothing else, 'Red Dawn' plays like a Reaganite masturbatory fantasy.

The notion that any enemy would concern itself with Red State real estate is only slightly less believable than the notion that beer-guzzling yahoos would ward off such invaders when in reality they would just get drunk and shoot off their own toes.

Red Dawn knows what it wants to say; it just has a hard time saying it, and too often it goes for the easy score instead of really delving into the possibilities of the scenario.

Red-baiting pablum about some Brat Packers, here dubbed the Wolverines, who rescue Colorado from a Soviet occupation. Risibly bad, jingoistic, and often laughable to boot.
