Goofs

At the roadworks, the driver states he's "been waiting for 42 min". No traffic controller would ever make a vehicle wait for that long (15min maximum waiting times). Also no traffic controller would walk off the job site (for any reason) without first informing his supervisor, or just ask a road worker to take over traffic control duties. Traffic controllers in Australia must be accredited as such. If you're not accredited as 1, you cant perform as 1. See more »

Very bad Red Dawn remake
22 August 2018 | by curtreams-07813See all my reviews

Just needed to post a review to make the overall rating a little more honest.

I understand people have different tastes and all that, but this movie really deserves barely a 1 star rating overall. There is NO WAY any honest person could give this a 9 or 10 rating. NO WAY. Borrowed this from another review because is says it so succinctly:

Complete waste of time. The acting was mediocre . The plot , story and message, was a total waste. Worst sci-fi movie that I've seen in years.

Editing this movie down to 60 minutes or so would have maybe brought it up to a 3 star and wasted an hour less of my life.
