Not that the Russians in the original Red Dawn were all that well-defined, but they were at least threatening. You felt the Wolverines were really going up against a massive force. Here, the bad guys are just dumb wimps supplying faceless targets for a gutless PG-13 action film. How faceless? Well, filmmakers were able to change them from Chinese to North Korean in postproduction, if that gives you any indication. The Wolverines might as well be fighting cardboard cutouts.
