'Red Dawn' -- 2 stars
PG-13; 1:54 running time
The film itself, shot in 2009 by director Dan Bradley, is more of a damp matchstick than a blaze. It stars Chris Hemsworth in the old Patrick Swayze role, and a couple of Joshes, Hutcherson and Peck. Like the first and more interestingly insane "Red Dawn," a product of the Reagan era and the fevered machismo of writer-director John Milius, the remake imagines a home-turf takeover, this time in and around Spokane, Wash.
