Yes, I do really like the remake of "The Karate Kid" It's really cool and funny. But there are quite a few bad things about it.

I bet everyone is all excited about "The Karate Kid" 2010 one. I know it seems cool and probably people will watch it because our favorite star JACKIE CHAN IS IN THERE! But lots of rants has been going on about the remake. One is that why can't they call it "The Kung Fu Kid" if it's only about Kung Fu? I mean seriously, that's not even being near a remake.
Next we have the person who is playing as the main character, Jaden Smith. Now this kid is very inexperienced I should say and he has only been in 2 movies. Now our awesome start, Will Smith. Will Smith just wanted to make his son a star by just putting him in the movie "The Karate Kid." He just did that so his son can gain popularity. How selfish is that!? You know, this made me really down on Will Smith because he's my idol! His son doesn't even deserve the role to play as the main character. Jaden can't act well at all!
Yes, everyone knows that latest movies are cooler. Old movies like "The Karate Kid" is like the best. But the remake seems cooler is because of the effects of it. Which means how they did it is really fake. But they tried making the movie as cool as possible but the movie still fails.
The story plot wasn't as good and firm like the original "Karate Kid". Just wanted to say that.
The main rant about this movie is that WHY DO WE NEED A REMAKE IF THE ORIGINAL WAS AWESOME ALREADY! Now everyone loves the original Karate Kid but since the remake came out it just spoiled it. I'm so disappointed.


Ok, I hope this forum doesn't offend anyone. So anyway... PEACE

I've not seen it yet, but I'm very excited! I'm going to the Premiere in London (Just in the crowd, sadly)
I've not seen the first and I think it's better that way, I'm horrible at comparing movies XD


I'm just excited about seeing Jackie anyways <3

Meh whatever. I read the same rants on Youtube. The remake is better to me in my opinion, even though I haven't seen it yet. I can't wait to see it.

ok so here is my inpute on the new Karate Kid movie..

on the 1st point of contestation. in the original the actor Danny is very inexperienced and his acting was very poor, compared to Jayden who is also inexperienced but manages to portray atleast some varying degrees of emotion.

2nd point, this isnt a remake, but more of a re-imagining for the present day, so a comparision of the 2 is rather ineffectual for rating the films.

3rd point. although the storylines are similar the 2010 movie is the better as it is set in a more realistic setting for the young character to emerse himself in the world of martial arts, and also makes his rise to win the competition more emotional.

4th point. jackie chan is an awesome actor and was the perfect replacement for Mr Miagee
