Movements are smooth and cinematic with minimal blurring or jitter occuring. With two tracks to choose from, Red Dawn sounds better on home video than ever before. Accuracy to what is going on onscreen is quite well woven and some of the most fun you can have with the film. Given our terroristic invasions and probable future attacks - this brings a reality as to opening your eyes and being prepared. Red Dawn Blu-ray Welcome to the home of the brave Chris Hemsworth Thor , Josh Hutcherson The Hunger Games , and Isabel Lucas Immortals deliver a full arsenal of pulse-pounding excitement in this explosive action-adventure! These offer glimpses into how the cast prepared for the combat roles and how the illusion of a communist invasion was accomplished, as well as several other production topics.
The video quality here appears to be no better than the earlier release. This ends up with bloodshed and the teens are able to kill off the Russian agents. If you just want to have an enjoyable time and not looking for some amazing effects or something else to keep yourself interested this is good. Red Dawn is really in need of a new transfer taken from an original negative. So you should notice a minor uptick in visual detail, which is always a plus.
A good movie to watch. The characters and story draw you in and make you believe this could happen at the time of the setting. When the soldiers begin killing everyone in sight, local teens take to the hills to avoid the new totalitarian regime established in their little town and, as we later learn, throughout the world. While the above is taking place, a group of teenagers, led by the older, college-aged but not in college Jed Eckert Patrick Swayze , has gone into the surrounding woods, including Jed's brother Matt Charlie Sheen and Matt's high-school pal Robert C. Charlie Sheen has a little heart throb role here as well as C Thomas Howell. Sadly, this isn't what we get here.
The quality of detail is also all over the map, with some scenes looking quite good and colorful, while others appear dark and noisy. In lower key moments, the track does what it needs to, letting background noise enforce atmosphere or dialogue to take center stage. I have noticed many small mistakes that actors made. The image can appear kinda soft and smooth at times while also sometimes appearing a bit crisper and sharper. The main menu plays a deliberately glitchy montage of action scenes.
It's surprisingly topically for the times and has some great lines, scenes, and performances. Of course, it helps if you try not to ask yourself too many questions about the story and just sit back and enjoy it for what it is. Lea Thompson adds probably her first iconic 80s role to the bucket in this one. So you get the kind of impact you want from an explosion, giving your home theater a nice workout. In 2009, Hemsworth had already wielded Thor's hammer for cameras, but neither that film nor The Avengers had been released and made him a semi-household name. With both the transfer and the audio seemingly recycled from the prior Blu-ray release, fans who already own Red Dawn may not want to pick this one up, as the only thing different about this title is a single new featurette albeit one that runs over an hour.
Replaced with another copy no issues. I told him to sit with me and watch this version and if he liked the new one better I would watch the new one. This was a definite see in my house growing up. The attack on America begins with a blackout, soon followed by paratroopers and airpower. The original is a much more serious movie that has a real ending. It returns to Blu-ray from Shout! In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky — shockingly, the U. Red Dawn was shot on 35mm film and is presented here in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.

Pure silliness that leaves you satisfied on a 4th of July. I'll pop it in now and then just to take me back to my youth.
I would recommend this to a friend Although the lead acting troop was relatively young their acting skills were both competent and believable — thus their satisfying viewing experience. That pretty much sums up how silly this movie is going to be. My brother and I saw it together I don't know how many times. The price of this product was a real good deal, has great actors, who were at a younger age at this time. As country folk, they are well familiarized with survival tactics and hunting, which allows them to carry out sophisticated acts of military sabotage, upsetting the balance of power in town with their guerilla warfare.
I would recommend this to a friend This is really an excellent movie that portrays a invasion by Soviets in a rural Colorado area and the defensive counteractions by local high school students. Updated daily and in real-time, we track all high-def disc news and release dates, and review the latest disc titles. Lots of the stars in this movie got their start or were at the beginning of their careers. The threat of war was much more prevalent when this movie first arrived and it seemed almost possible that we could be attacked by our evil enemies. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom. As eager to educate in the world of film as I am to learn. As students watch with curious interest as the soldiers parachute in, they soon find themselves under fire.
