By the already low standards that a Red Dawn remake would have, it's not very good, but not as flat out awful as one would secretly suspect. It's stupid, has a small handful of good action scenes, is unevenly acted, and is still pretty xenophobic despite it being more ridiculous this time out.
Director Tarsem Singh previously made two visually stunning, but incredibly boring and boneheaded films (The Cell, The Fall) before taking on his latest film Immortals. Undoubtedly talented when it comes to visuals, his latest film somehow manages to rank as the least of his efforts, but not for lack of trying. Whereas his past efforts have been ambitious failures, there simply isn’t anything in this sword and sandals epic that hasn’t been done before, or better, hundreds of times before.
