Here’s the deal, i’m not sure if I’d go to the theaters to see it, but I would watch at home, just to be entertained or whatever.
I am a fan of Jackie Chan; I think he is one funny Chinese dude. Love his movies because they are energetic, fun, funny and plain entertaining; whether they are Blockbusters or not. I love movies that make me smile, LOL or just make me feel light. I love happy endings and when the bad guys get what’s coming to them in the end.
That’s what The Karate Kid movies are all about.I am a fan of all the original Karate Kid movies, even the one with Hilary Swank.
However, I am not sure how I feel about Jaden Smith cast as our new Karate Kid. I just don’t think I could love this movie as much as I’d like to for that reason. No disrespect to Jaden Smith but he’s not there yet, far from, in my opinion. I do love his father though, but despite whom his father is I think this young star has to take smaller steps. Work on his craft, work his way up and be respected as Jaden Smith, not Will Smith’s kid who got the lead in that movie. I think he has to humble himself (he’s a bit too cocky for me) and do this thing right, if he ever wants to be taken seriously as an actor and not just the offspring of two really famous people (of whom I am a big fan) with a free-pass for that reason.
Anyway, here’s the trailer. What do you think?
All and all though, I probably would be more excited about this film had they choosen a different, somewhat better Karate Kid. I’m just saying! Sorry Will, still love you though, Seven Pounds, Hancock and all.
