Almost every scene of this movie was similar to the original. The original was triumphant. This was like watching a toddler kicking its baby brother. Face it, you can't replace the original. I think FAME taught us that!!!

Jackie Chan & Jaden's acting are phenomenal. They should get acting awards. Hope there is a part 2.

Is this Karate Kid as good as the original? No, although it is better than the sequels. But why bother with nostalgia? It's probably good enough. Full Review

A fine, fun remake of a movie that updates, transplants and reimagines the original without sacrificing its heart or goofy charm. Full Review

The new Karate Kid brings fresh life and perspective to the classic tale of perseverance and cross-generational friendship, thanks to Harald Zwart's sensitive direction and two exceptionally appealing stars. Full Review
