I can not understand which was the purpose of this remake . A really bad choice . A movie which was 100 times worst than the original one . It was a waste of time for me . I am a huge karate kid fan but this one was one of the worst remakes i have ever seen .
A Karate kid which practices Kung Fu for a bad re-make.
Only Jackie Chan could be saved from this movie.
A poor remake
I decided to watch this one so that my kids could see what we experienced with the original in the 80’s. Even though Ralph Machio was moderately annoying even back then, the movies did define an era for many of us. Boy what a disappointment with this remake, on so many levels. Generally speaking, I have to say that the producers were trying so hard to copy the original that many of the scenes seemed ‘forced’. Even when they were trying to add a variation, it failed to produce the same conviction. Here is a list of my issues with the film: 1. Jaden Smith is simply too young for the role. Between his meagre acting skills and the odd childhood romance, it just didn’t work. 2. Jackie Chan seemed very hollow in this role and lacked his usual spark and enthusiasm. I’d say he missed the mark and the potential this role had for him. The scene where Dre discovers his master’s past pain is particularly lame. It didn’t pull any emotional strings. 3. Dre’s mom was really annoying. 4. The general age group for the kids was too young and forced mature concepts that didn’t come off as believable. 5. The producers should have ‘made it their own’ and deviated further, instead of attempting a sad copy.
I don’t recommend this film. Go and rent the original if you want to feel the inspiration from a ‘coming of age / kung fu / feel good’ flick. It didn’t even suck my kids in.
An insult to movie-lovers everywhere
It’s truly a pleasure to be able to give this movie the lowest possible rating of one star.
The remake of the Karate Kid really does represent everything that is wrong with Hollywood today. Columbia pictures has taken a great, beloved film and recycled it for cheap profit.
The original Karate Kid film is a beloved gem for several reasons. Pat Morita, a beloved character actor and a fine man, was given the chance to be the star of a movie and he delivered beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. The relationship between Morita and Ralph Macchio’s Daniel was touching and perfectly done.
Part of what made the original movie work is that it was about class differences. You really believed that Daniel was a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks who was struggling to fit in at a new school. And you believed in the awkward puppy love with rich girl Elizabeth Shue. With Jaden Smith, the son of a multi-millionaire actor, you don’t believe in for a millisecond. This kid has never had to struggle for anything in his life. The entire emotional premise of the film doesn’t work at all.
Everything that is any good in this disgusting Jaden Smith/Jackie Chan remake is lifted out of the original film. There is nothing redeeming about it beyond that. Jaden Smith can’t act, he can’t emote, and you don’t believe him for a second. Beyond that, he’s too young and too small to play the role. You simply don’t believe for a moment that he could actually beat these other kids in a tournament. It’s ridiculous. The scene where Jackie Chan breaks down crying has to be one of the worst-acted, horrible dramatic moments ever put to film.
Like the remake of Willy Wonka, The new Karate Kid movie is an instance of Hollywood cannibalizing its own best work for short term profit. There were dozens of original, creative, magical new stories that were turned down so that this movie could be made. We are all the poorer for it.
