Very Very Poor Execution of the Exact Script of the Original

This film is a perfect example of how difficult it is to actually make a good film. Even using a proved script and story that led to a monumental film in 1984 couldn't save this reboot. It is simply awful in every way. Poor acting, poor cinematography, poor directing, poor editing, poor poor poor. The best scenes from the original are inexplicably absent. In the original, Daniel spends half the film working on Mr. Miyagi's house. He is forced to do the work because he made the promise of "i karate teach and you karate learn". In this film, Dre hangs up a jacket "a thousand times" and then knows kung fu. They had the opportunity to really cross the generational gap by coming up with some original takes on "paint the fence", "wax the car", "sand the floor". I remember as a kid spending hours joking around with friends mimicking these motions. Now kids just get to hang up their jacket? I'm sure their parents love that their kids hang up jackets now but they are just missing out. I'm surprised they didn't do "make your bed", "brush your teeth", "clean the dishes". If they are going to follow the original script then either fully commit or don't commit at all. This movie couldn't figure out if it was making fun of the original, redoing the original, or just going through some motions. What's shocking is how successful this movie was. It is obviously because of the terrific story and a whole new generation of kids watching this tale unfold for the first time. And i'm sure parents loved taking their kids to go see it because they can share something that meant so much to them 25 years ago. Let me save everyone from sitting through this mess and suggest that you can experience this story with your kids by watching the original. Even today, the original stands up much better than this disaster. this is easily my worst attempt at a review on IMDb and that's exactly what this film deserved. Long Live Daniel San.

This movie is terrible.

Look, first of all, I grew up with the original, not the cheap copy. Second, just because you have a kid doesn't mean he can act or should be in movies. I saw the interview where Will said he read for the part and the director loved him, and unless the director has no brain, that just can't be true. Jaden is one of the worst actors I've ever seen, anywhere. Seriously. He sucked in the other movies his father put him in also. Will is a good actor, but it's obviously not hereditary. As for the movie, the plot's just all sorts of stupid. "Jacket off?" Sounds like some cheesy porn line. Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb movie. Go watch anything else but this.

Don't feed the Trolls..

Work causes a single mother to move to China with her young son; in his new home, the boy embraces kung fu, taught to him by a master. The Karate Kid is a remake like no other that pays it's respects to the Original film but on the same time it does things on it's own with new characters, a new setting and a new story as a whole. The chemistry between Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith is excellent and both gave 2 terrific performances and that scene in the car with Dre and Mr. Han was so moving and sad and Chan's dramatic skills once again come out and it's good seeing that from time to time he keeps delivering and choosing this kind of projects and this one did good to him plus Chan saying that he is nowhere near as good as Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) shows how kind and sweet of a person he is. Will Smith's son Jaden also gives a compelling and in my opinion sad and moving performance as 'The Karate Kid' and i also loved his scenes with Wenwen Han. The Soundtrack is also superb and excellent and the martial art sequences were a mix of Karate Kid meets Rocky. Overall this is an amazing remake that respects what the Original did but also tries to move on and do things on it's own without doing everything by Nostalgia and it's sad to see that so many people hated the film, just because some films are been remade that doesn't mean that all of the remakes will turn into another Ghostbusters and besides i think that both 1984 and 2010 versions are terrific and special in their own ways and i'm sure that some people will eventually see that with time. (A+)
