The only reason to see this film is to watch that annoying punk Jaden get beat up.
It was really amazing!! The actors are amazingg!!! And the storyline also is pretty sad... recommend it.
A real dissapointment,a few more dollars developing the plot and characters and a few less flashy location shots would have helped, A dissapointing remake that could have been so much more
I enjoyed this more than I anticipated. Will and Jada's little boy has a lot of charm. Easy to watch, but not as good as the original...
this movie is my favorite movie of all time right next to spider-man 3!!!!
Cute. Average. Will SMith's kid can't act. Of course, neither can Jackie Chan.
very good movie! was surprised to see it was rated a 2.97
While nothing will ever match the original, this movie was surprisingly good. A liked the twists they made from original sotryline. Jackie CHan was decent, as was Teraji O. Henson. Jayden Smith can't act.
he's real easy to teach ? and he's so cute at the first of the movie .
not a bad film overall, but doesn't really make sense to have a movie called The Karate Kid (Karate being a Japanese martial art) when he's learning Kung Fu.. in china. The franchise didn't need to be revived - no one needs to be reminded of Ralph Macchio.
Great movie. Watched it 3 times. They should produce more movies.
My son loved it!
was an ok movie but not enough content (drama or action) in the movie.
The movie is great, except for the main star...
wait for the rental...
Not too bad for a remake.
A great movie a feel good type and if you liked the first one you will enjoy this one!
amazing - me and the kids loved this movie and would buy it...great acting and great story line...loved how close it was to thr original but still unique
awesome movie, i liked that they didn't try to follow the old karate kid
If you watched the original Karate Kid, you will love this one.
Someone posted before me 'Jackie Chan and Jaden Chan" Anyway..boring movie don't watch
Great movie....I loved it.....a feel good movie. I took my 74 year old mother who has not been to a movie for along time...she was impressed. I was impressed by Jackie Chan and Jaden Chan.
Better than the original.
It was a good movie because the young fellow was able to overcome the bully and become more whole.
Great movie. Jackie Chan did a wonderful job
Jackie Chan was amazing in this movie!!!
Good movie - well done but very similar to the first.
Not bad for a kid that has never taken acting classes!
Thirilly entertaining! I was afraid it was going to be a knock off (Being a child of the 80s I know the karate kid) but it was defenetly a stand alone and not a remake.
prefer the original.
not as good as the original movie.
still like the original
good remake.great acting by jaden smith
This movie was a pleasant surprise. Jaden Smith was great and there was just enough of the original story to please fans and with a new spin to keep it interesting. My kids loved it as did we.
not as good as the original
Are there no surprises in scripts anymore? Has everything been done? A little too formulaic but Will Smiths son is just so darned cute you can't help but root for him...even if you already know everything thats going to happen...
Awesome movie! Saw it with my daughter who was on the edge of her seat for miost of the movie! She really loved all the great fight seens and so did I!
So not as good as the original!
I am a fan of all the Karate Kids, but knowing this one as a remake of the original. I believe it was better than I expected it. The choice in characters played out great. :)
Better than I thought it would be...Jackie Chan does a really good job in this.
Great movie, with a great story. So simular to the original, yet has components that make it unique and unforgetable.
Inspiring movie but not quite as good as the original was. Can't beat Pat Morita.
One of the few fun movies this summer, although the movie goes on 20 minutes too long. Jaden's got a bright future ahead of him.
such a wicked moovie!!!! lol
Should have been called Kung Fu Kid! In the original it was semi believable that Daniel could defeat other north american white teens in a karate match after a short training period but in the remake there is no way he could defeat asian boys that have been training since they were preschoolers. I do see a great career for Jaden however.
Jaden Smith was so cute in this movie and Jakie Chan was awesome!!! A great movie to watch for the whole family :)
Karate Kid was full of action and interaction between the master and the student. I would recommend this movie #1 for families
