HORRIBLE This movie tanked. As if the first one wasn't corney enough. Also I think the boy ruined the movie. Honestly not everyone should be an actor. If you ever see him tell him I said that.... thanks:)
Smiths Destroyed Karate Kid This movie remake is so horrible. Wow. Will Smith needs to retire. This and that new Bull S h i t movie with jaden. After Earth..... Whats happening to Will?! Stop trying to make jaden to an actor. He SUCKS !! ........... The Original 1984 Karate Kid is a FIVE STAR CLASSIC. Ralph Macchio and the cast of the ORIGINAL Karate Kid is a must own!!
Well, I liked it :) I thought Jaden did well in the movie. & his years of training in martial arts speaks volumes in the movie too. Pros: I liked the diversity of the characters versus the norm (i.e. Karate Kid 1-3 & 3 Ninjas). Thus, I like how the movie used actual martial arts practitioners! (I'm a huge fan of the craft). Cons: the movie needs more substance & longevity. The relationship between Mr. Han & his student felt rushed. It didn't develop as well & wasn't as meaningful as it should have been between the 2.
Not bad.... Don't get me wrong, I like this movie, but seriously? Karate Kid? Jackie Chan (CHINESE) teaches kid KUNG FU! (NOT KARATE!!). This entire movie has nothing whatsoever to do with Karate Kid. NOTHING Japanese, NOTHING KARATE. Good movie, but irrelevant to the original Karate Kid.
I feel like I'm ready to win!! I loved the movie. It gets me very emotional and pumped up before I competed on my track competition. It gets me hungry inside for victory and not giving up. I feel like I'm an underdog and its my time to shine. Definitely worth watching, especially if you're and athlete.
Pretty good but will never replace the original The movie is pretty good overall. I think the fight scenes are quite epic and it was cool that it took place in China, I still enjoy the classic one a lot more.
