Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here coming down off a Fantastic Fest high with a peak at the new RED DAWN film hitting theaters November 21.
And the fest ended with a bang, (quite a few actually) with director Dan Bradley's new RED DAWN flick. I really liked it - it's packed with some of the most talented young "New Hollywood" actors and actresses (as well as THE COMEDIAN!) giving some damn fine performances and it totally delivers on the action. Is it some magnificiant piece of arthouse cinema gold, like say BLACK SWAN? No, but that doesn't seem to be what they were going for at all. If you're looking to have a good time and just go with it, you can't help but really dig it. It does feel like a "love it or hate it film" - I loved it.
Here's a taste:
So what do you ladies and gents think? Shoot off in the Talkbacks below!
