It's hard to imagine that anything can beat the awesomeness that is the original Red Dawn. After all, it had Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen and Jennifer Grey as teenagers fighting (and slaughtering) invading Cubans and Soviets. Plus, Harry Dean Stanton screamed "Avenge me!" from behind a chain-link fence. But they're remaking it all the same, and the writer and director attached to the project may actually be just what the film needs to become even more kick-ass than the original.
