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! The unsuspecting citizens of Spokane, Washington, wake up one morning to the shocking sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky in a surprise attack on the United States. Soon the entire city is under enemy control, but a group of courageous teenagers has decided to fight back, b waging an all-out war against the invaders, to take back their town – and their freedom!
This movie might be a remake, but they did a good job of making it current from the get-go.
I wasn't crazy about the first film with Patrick Swayze, yeah he was hot, but it just wasn't a blockbuster to me. I think now it might be the unsophisticated technology they had back then making movies. The effects, cinematography and general way it was made was incredible this time around.
As you can tell, I like this version waaaaaay better. Great actions scenes, and the whole movie was full of anticipation and edge-of-the-seat moments.
Yeah, there was a couple of deja vu moments... and Chris Hemsworth, (yummy), bore an uncanny resemblance in voice and mannerisms to the late, great, Patrick Swayze. It was kinda cool to see that.
This is definitely one of the better remakes I have seen! Kudos to the director.
