Political Incorrectness Of The Original Red Dawn

As I write this the original Red Dawn is playing on the Ecnore channel. As the movie plays I would like to write about how times have changed since the 1980s.

Chevy truck has a gun rack in the back window. This would have probably drawn a response from the FBI for a terrorist activity on school property. There was once a time when high school kids had guns in their vehicles so they could go hunting after school. But today, schools are gun free zones. And we wonder why crazy people are drawn to schools?Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

White man shooting black teacher, racist.

Kids riding in the back of a truck, which is now illegal.

Adult giving guns to a minor. Obvious example of terrible parenting.

Keeping a handgun in the glove box?

Pissing in a radiator probably voided the warranty.

After the kids reach the wilderness there is a discussion about what their parents would want. today, it is not what the parent wants, but what the government wants.

Shooting a deer to survive? I hope they had a valid hunting license.

Red Dawn the remake

Red Dawn released in 2012 starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is loosely based off the 1984 Red Dawn.

First Impressions – the overall acting was good. For the most part the actors played their parts well.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

The writing was pretty lousy. The characters lacked any kind of development, except for the viewer knowing Chris Hemsworth served in the Marine corps, little else is know about the other characters.

Character development

In the original Red Dawn the commander of the invading force is seen writing to his family. In his letters he talks about how is growing tired of the war. In the remake there is no such character development with the commander of the invading force.
