  • 4 stars "before you bash it, this movie is based on book 1 of a 7 book series written by john marsden. yes, the basic plot seems to be the same as red dawn, but the full story is very good. i watched this movie and was disappointed because i felt i was left hanging, but after finding out the story continues (6 other books) i was much happier. the movie itself is well done. my only complaint is, like i said, it ends leaving you saying "thats it? really?". i think, and hope, the intention is to film more movies to continue the story."
  • 2 stars "this could have been a great movie, but instead is just a not-well done copy of red dawn (1984), but with almost ridiculous action scenes. it got an extra star only because it provoked my imagination into "what would i have done?""
