Is this an Australian remake of Red Dawn? --Funkychinaman 08:26, 27 June 2011 (CDT)

No. The film is based on a popular book series by author John Marsden. Although Red Dawn may have been an inspiration, the books are vastly different to the Red Dawn movie. --Crackshot 02:22, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Where the heck was the Aussie military?

The country gets invaded, so they send out one F-18? There's no sign whatsoever anywhere in the film, aside from that single plane, to indicate there was any kind of mobilization to counter the invasion. It's like the "Asian Coalition" just swept in unopposed. Spartan198 (talk) 13:56, 14 November 2012 (EST)

In the books it is stated the invasion happened so far and so suddenly that there was no time to send out any kind of counter attack against the invasion forces. Bristow8411 (talk) 20:21, 14 November 2012 (EST)

If you anything about real military tactics, such an blitzkrieg kind of invasion can never happen. Say whatever you want about the Aussies, they aren't a slouch when it comes to the most modern technology and weapons. This is also the digital age, where something like a massive invasion like this on say a country like Australia can never get passed any of the other major powers like the US stepping in. Even back in the 80s, this idea was just pure fantasy. The story of this book and the movie is obviously Red Dawn today with Asians, which from reading the summary of the plot does not explain what the rest of the world is doing.

The author has stated that he deliberately didn't go into the details of the invasion or international response, simply because they weren't relevant to the plot. Presenting an accurate invasion scenario isn't the point, it's all about the characters response to it. P.S. Any similarities to Red Dawn are purely coincidental. Pravda616 13:20 16/11/12
That's a very lazy excuse. You don't write a story with things like this and completely didn't want to write about the big picture. You don't think the first thing the characters would ask is don't we live in the 21st century? And no, any similarities to Red Dawn is more than coincidental. Everybody knows up and down what Red Dawn is about. Now saying something like The Hunger Games having similarities to Battle Royale is purely coincidental makes sense Excalibur01 (talk) 22:47, 15 November 2012 (EST)
Everybody knows up and down what Red Dawn is about? I think you'll find that the majority of Australian's have never heard of Red Dawn. Pravda616 16:50 16/11/12
