7 Reasons Why I’ll Probably See The Karate Kid (2010)

The hilariously self-described Jack @ Crackle tells us we need to see this movie, regardless of the Kung Fu/Karate mix-up, and he has several points I agree with, especially regarding that particular beef:

Ok. So some are saying that this remake looks corny, and the title alone (there is no Karate in this movie — only Kung-fu) is reason enough to dismiss it. Really? Besides the fact that the “Crane Kick” is as real as the Loch Ness Monster, are you telling me that the below is high art?

He also points out that many great remakes have proven to be instant classics (The Wizard of Oz, The Dark Knight), and have “improved upon their legacy.” After that he mentions some animated series I’ve never heard of, and drops Hilary Swank’s name. Check out his whole list of reasons of Why the Karate Kid Remake is a Good Thing. And then act accordingly.

  1. My 12-year-old almost didn’t go see this, because she feels some find of loyalty to the original (and she’s getting ready for her brown belt test in karate). But since I paid for her ticket, she went and really liked it.

    This “remake” movie was incredible. That’s pretty much the summary statement right there. It was a great, great movie with real characters, tears, smiles, and overall awesomeness. Some people said it bad, but I have Watch Karate Kid
    2010, Jaden Smith is one talented kid, his performance was brilliant and believable –not to mention absolutely adorable. Jackie Chan was Jackie Chan, there is just not much else you can say about him, except -maybe- that he was awesome, too. This movie took me completely by surprise; from reviews I had read, I was not expecting something so complete.
