In a fall of highly-anticipated features, one has to feel a bit bad for the remake Red Dawn. Already delayed to MGM’s financial struggles, the film has received a tepid response after its Fantastic Fest debut and now Dan Bradley‘s debut is trudging into theaters this Thanksgiving alongside some of the major heavyweights.

Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
