Description

In this lively (and paranoid) adventure set in the mid-1980s, the US stands alone, abandoned by its allies. The USSR and Cuba start selective bombing, then invade the US and quickly capture the central part of the country. The film takes place entirely in a small town taken by surprise by paratroopers. A band of teenagers (led by Patrick Swayze and C. Thomas Howell) escape to the mountains and become a group of tough guerrillas that launch a series of surprise attacks on the murderous and nasty Red invaders. But the teenagers start getting a bit troubled themselves. In their brutality, are they becoming just like their enemies? The band of teens fights on, becoming a smaller and smaller group. They help pave the way for the eventual victory of the main American Army, busy elsewhere in the Republic.

    Yeah because countries never invade/occupy other countries (Russia/Ukraine right now) and as woke as our military is now it won’t take long for our enemies to think we’re distracted. Shame on you apple for propoganda (if you buy this movie you’ll see a scene where they’re blaring propaganda messages over loudspeakers to break the Americans spirit) Paranoid lol

    Not only does this have an exceptional cast, including early-career Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, but it's a nice patriotic film about American spirit as well as a film that doesn't pretend that war leaves anyone undamaged. Written and directed by the incomparable John Milius and scored by the legendary score composer Basil Poledouris...it's well worth multiple viewings.
