Red Dawn opens with one of the most shocking scenes ever filmed: on a peaceful morning, through the windows of a high school classroom, students see paratroopers land on the varsity football field. The invasion of the United States has begun! As their town is overrun by foreign nationals, eight teenagers escape to the mountains. Taking the name of their high school football team, the Wolverines, they wage unremitting guerrilla warfare in defense of their parents, their friends and their country. Starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, C.
