Just as Hollywood has been inundated with movies about American military engagement in recent years, the game market has been crowded with war-themed shooters. But in sharp contrast to films like "Lions for Lambs," "Syriana," and "Redacted," military shooters have often been astoundingly successful.
It was practically preordained that Hollywood would greenlight a remake of "Red Dawn." The new film is due out later this year, but MGM's attempt to retell the story in a post-Soviet world, this time with Red China as the aggressor, is already facing its own controversy.
