My kids have been nagging to see "The Karate kid" since the first trailer was shown on TV weeks ago. The minute i saw Jackie Chan was in it i decided we had to go see it!
Today was the day we finally went, I say finally but it was only released here 4 days ago.
I was very intrigued to see how Jaden Smith would be as an actor, as bad as this will make me sound I was wondering if he got the part because of his high profile father (Will Smith) or his own acting skills. I am very glad to report it is the latter, he is a brilliant little actor, he will definitely be giving his dad a run for his money as he gets older.
The film was great and took nothing away from the original. In my opinion it surpasses the original in its kung fu and spirit. We get to see some breathtaking views of China, including the Forbidden City and The Great Wall of China.
Overall "The Karate Kid" gets five out of five stars from me
Unfortunately when we got back home my boys, who are 8 years old (twins) decided they wanted to try out the cool kung fu moves on each other. So I have a feeling im going to be doing a lot of telling off over the next couple of days.
