Movies of the week
Red Dawn’ has been one of the most anticipated movies of 2012, for two good reasons: one, it stars the handsome Chris Hemsworth, and the other, its unusual storyline. It is a story about valiant teenagers, who declare to the mountain of difficulties facing them that they are more difficult. After their town is thudded by the feet of an enemy battalion, ‘the brothers in feasts, love and festivals’, turn into ‘brothers in arms.’
A lot of obstacles had to be removed, before flagging off the movie for its release, which was slated to premiere 3 years earlier. Several rumors about factors causing the delay have been rife, such as MGM suffering the throes of a financial breakdown.
Hemsworth enacts Jed Eckert, one of the boys, standing tall to thwart the enemy’s efforts. Lately, the actor hinted that he accepted the movie because it was a multi-dimensional story about how all human beings (brothers, sisters, friends, family) come together when a sinister tempest blows across everyone.
The actor explained having two siblings in his life helped him to relate with other characters in the movie. He added, the individual evolution of his character and his character’s evolution with respect to the other characters was an enriching experience.
The actors were given a taste of real weapon training in a boot camp, and Hemsworth exploited the chance to understand the soul of his role.
Red Dawn hit the silver screen a few days back and has been garnering a positive response over its early weekend.
