I just thought it was great. Action from the first 10 minutes to the very end. I loved the relationship between the father and sons. I didn't really care that there were no superstars. It had all the makings of a great movie; action, drama, loyalty, love, good guys and bad guys. Of course I was upset that THOR had to die but I guess it depicted heroism and he went out fighting as his father did. I vaguely remember the first RED DAWN and maybe hat was a good thing because it left me open to the whole plot and the unpredictable ending.
