2 stars is probably being generous. It's cheesy, and not a good 80's throw-back kind of cheesy. It was too unbelievable to enjoy. It starts out well enough and there's a couple brutal moments but I started to get bored as soon as they killed off Thor. My friend and I kept joking that he needed to bust out the Hammer. Then I read that Chris Hemsworth made this in 2009, way before Thor came out. I think he's gotten to be a bit better of an actor since then. Or maybe this script just sucks. Yeah, I think that's it.

Where the hell is the US national guard? What is the big North Korean plan, here? It's probably best if you don't ask too many questions about this one...

The 1984 Patrick Swayze original is superior in almost every way possible. I'll take him, Charlie Sheen, Powers Boothe, and Harry Dean Stanton over these kids any day.
