Red Dawn(1984)

It's been a while since I last saw this movie but I wanted to watch it again before watching the remake. Overall, I liked the movie the first time I saw it and still do. The acting is pretty good, the plot is interesting, and the entertainment value is high. The characters don't develop all that well and the breaks in the plot drag the movie a bit. Also, a lot of the decisions that keep the plot rolling feel ridiculous and hurt the film some. The ending is also pretty mediocre. Still, a good film overall.
