I love it how the Cuban Col. tells the troop to go looking for 4473's at the sporting goods store.

I got my copy (VHS) for $5 from the clearance bin
Link Posted: 10/11/2004 3:12:31 PM EST
Just picked up my copy at the Ft. Collins, Colo. Walmart for $8.00.

It was on the rack, not in the bin. They had about a dozen copies in stock.

In 1985 I was in 8th grade, and the county had just opened up a new high school. All of the kids going to it got to vote on the school mascot. Because of Red Dawn it ended up being the Wolverine. I wonder if any of the students there today know the significance of their mascot?

Love that movie! I got mine (DVD) for $7.99 at K-Mart years ago.

Red Dawn is one of those movies I never get tired of watching. It should be required to watch in all high school history classes.

Oh and WOLVERINES!

Actually, that is a take on an ancient quote by the philophiser Euripides:

"It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."



When Euripides said that, I don't think he met "face a Hind-D with only an AKM."

I thought it came from Geo. Washington:

I might go pay $8 for it, even though that is 100 rounds of ammo.

several of the ak's were modified valmets, while others were built on (the horror!) butchered beautiful steyr maadi imports.



When I watched it I noticed that the Ruskies had what appeared to be AKS-74s, but with 7.62 magazines. I then realized that at that point in time, only the russians had real AKS-74...duh...

All of their mockups where pretty darn good too. I was really impressed with the DShk .51 HMG which if you look closely was an M60D on a carriage and some added furniture. I knew that gun was bigger than Leah Thompson!

The Spetznaz Col having the Jatimatic was odd, I guess they jus wanted him to have a different cool looking weapon.

People bitch about the armor, I thought it looked GREAT, who the hell sits and counts the number of road wheels in a movie theatre anyway? I guess it looked good after growing up with war movies where any german tank= M-48 with swashtika on the side.

Director John Milius is very much pro-gun. The amount of effort put into getting it right doesn't surprise me. It's certainly appreciated.
The Son Tay Raid is in production, woo-hoo.
