The cast is actually not too bad, as it looks... nobodys really known too well... and i've only seen a few of them in movies - usually a good sign, not having some predominant star or anything...
That said, they do have 2 black kids in the Wolverines (which, seeing as its being remade with Detroit as the setting, instead of what's basically South Park, Colorado, it makes some sense having some 'racial equality' there in a more diverse location...)
I dont think very many "morons who vote blue" are afraid of the 'big bad chinese'... it's more the red blooded, gun touting bible thumpers who actually thought that the events in Red Dawn could actually happen, who would be scared shitless and start digging their bomb shelters and loading up in bulk from repeated costco trips in order to prepare for such a thing.
You're right though, The premise of the first Red Dawn was to rile people up.. The Russians were losing in Afghanistan at the time, and their global power in europe and everywhere else was weakening considerably... and someone figured we should scare the fuck out of ourselves.
However, do we really consider the Chinese a real threat now? Seeing as they have so much invested in our Economy , and have in fact mimicked in so many ways, our infrastructure and shopping malls and whatever else... Many chinese love american things - including athletes (oh, do they love Kobe Bryant...)
I just dont see any Tension between US and China right now... and certainly not enough that they would want to attack the country that, not only helped them take down the Japs in ww2, but is also the largest importer of Chinese made goods, and has the largest number of chinese expatriates out of anywhere...
I'm assuming they'll fabricate some ficticious tension in the film (somewhat like they did in the original one - where apparently Russia had its worst harvest in 55 yrs, Nato had dissolved, and Mexico was in Revolt) that will cause the chinese to have no other option but to take us over.
I loved the original.
I read a big article/report like 6 years ago about the chinese military my friend showed me. It basically stated that their military could invade from either coast and make it as far as 1000 miles inland before we would have a chance to halt them. I thought it was pretty legit at the time. I always had a plan to fight and escape hahaha
That wiki acticle said a lot of filming is done in Detroit. Makes sense, that city is perfect backdrop to a movie like that lol
uhh.. BOYSSSS AVENGE ME,,,,, AVENGE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
