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.

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

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