KARATE KID… Review… Slammin!’

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a really good movie. Just seems to be a lot of surface level gobbly gook. But The Karate Kid makes up for all that. Although it follows the main line of the original, it also creates a whole new identity. Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan are both excellent and carry the film easily.

Based in China, the locations themselves are stunning and the message equally thought provoking and passionate. And why doesn’t Hollywood always make a movie like this? Because many stay on the surface and are afraid to go deeper. Fear. “If I green light this movie and it tanks, there goes my career.” It’s a bummer.

Karate Kid 2 is already on the war path. If it’s half as good as this one, it’ll be great. But for now… go see this one. You won’t regret it.
