The Karate Kid
A Challenge He Never Imagined. A Teacher He Never Expected.
12-year-old Dre Parker could have been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying but the cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make him an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is a kung fu master. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.
I finally watched the Karate Kid remake. I was very pleased to find out that it was the story all about how Jaden Smith's life got flipped turned upside down. You see, he was chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, shooting some b-ball outside of his school, when a couple of guys (who were up to no good) started making trouble in his neighbourhood. He got in one little fight, then his mum got scared, and said "You're gonna learn karate from the maintenance guy downstairs."
IT'S NOT EVEN KARATE, YOU TWATS!
This film is amazing.
It takes a bad eighties martial arts kiddie film and manages to make it even worse.
Talent apparently skips a generation.
Well, he'll probably never be poor. But it's sad that he'll have to make buckets of money without any real talent.
How many American children can relate to the alienation of moving to China, getting beaten up and then training for gladiatorial-esque battles in which punching the other kid in the face earns you a point?
Probably every kid in America. Definitely every kid in America. Sure, everyone can relate to being bullied, that's normal, and that's somewhat something you can move with, but why does an American kid win against a bunch of Chinese kids at their own game? Not because he's any good. Nope. It's all because of the fact that the teacher of his rivals is a bit of a cunt. And Jackie Chan is a wise master of great skill and wisdom. Of course Jackie Chan is…
Can't review the new Kid without comparing it to the old Kid. New Kid seems more realistic and athletic....Old Kid was in his early 30s when he made the movie and weighed about 55 pounds. Old Kid Trainer was awesome and wax on wax off is classic. New Kid Trainer is good but jacket on jacket off did not work for me. Old Kid Bad Guys were vicious and easy to dislike. New Kid Bad Guys are mean but their teacher is the bad influence, otherwise they seem ok. Overall gotta give the edge to Old Kid...but New Kid is entertaining. Sounds like a review for Looper.
I don't understand why this film seems to get a lot of hate. While, it may not be as memorable as the original, and it is undeniably a bit overlong, this is still a very faithful, touching, and hugely entertaining remake. Jaden Smith is very solid, he's likeable and I always found myself rooting for him against these bullys. As good as he is though, Jackie Chan steals the show. Not only does Chan get to show off how great of an action star he is in the fight scenes, but he brings a surprisingly great emotional depth and dramatic crops to his performance especially in one particular scene. The fight scenes are really brutal especially for a PG movie,…
shame on you shame on you
99% REMEMBER THE NAME!!!!!
Why do people remake good movies? Why do people ruin good movies? Honestly, the Karate Kid, upon re watching has become my favorite 80s "high school" movie. Why can't people remake mediocre movies, or sub-par movies. Movies that had potential, but just were never really realized.
how the fuck do you manage to have all these annoying characters and put them in one movie
except for my man jackie
i wish i had a qt chinese sweetheart
no i dont have yellow fever why do you ask
Not as good as the original but still pretty awesome
I went in to this film expecting to hate it, but I actually ended up not minding it, it's a hell of a lot better then the other film that came before it.
The original was memorable. This one however.....
In case anyone was wondering (you weren't), I don't have internet or television currently and I'm forced to watch movies I already own. This is one of them.
Since I'm trying to remain positive in this tough times, I'll say that I liked the cinematography, and the "I was raised by the power of will" line are always iconic.
Also I have an interview on Thursday in case you were still wondering about how life is going (you weren't).
A excepción del título, ya que aprenden kung fu y no karate, me ha gustado mucho y me gusta más cada vez que la veo. Jaden Smith y Jackie chan han interpretado sus papeles a la perfección.
Complete list. :-(
