The Karate Kid (2010) – Movie Review


karate kid remake of yes in nineteen
eighty four film with ralph macho and pat morita this time we have gina smith
much younger obviously he was i think maybe ten or eleven gina smith he and
his mom move from detroit to china where where his mom tragically henderson
has taken on a new job angie didn’t smith runs afoul of the police and he meets jackie chan who is the
maintenance man who decides that he’s going to mentor him in kung fu and uh… much much fighting and
communities conference usa stick with the tail hillary clinton of questions bout it in
the light clout data and everything else and sometimes
even a out i think we talked about the other
one this morning on myspace com phony wage was started this decision will teach you the sim dead returns determined from headed off print detected off buses got it time metal just allowed all you guys are lapping at the top and there is an
editorial writer saying i’m glad i can’t believe you little kids bb these are
like this do you want to candy one i think what you think it’ll
area from there he at leat once with its mission separate dining there have been well
first of all i want to try to keep him tonight because anderson with this movie i was shocked at how
much i liked it actually i think it totally stands on its own you don’t have
to know anything about the first movie to like it it’s shot beautifully in
china it’d shot and looks like a good like a grown-up movie and um… i think
that jackie chan has a lot of urgency to it i think that the training scenes with
him work so much better than with pat morita because as we know jackie chan is
amazing uh… actually doing martial arts on i mean oppose the guys are same
there is a bit of a big problem with jane smith looking so small and that
which makes the romance stuff not really work that well his propose can be kind
of uneven but i thought the it was caught early very sensitive a great look
at they had been a jeep in terms of the two something like a city it’s not there
aren’t a lot of stereotypes involved in that and i’ve thought of you know it was
tenzin if it’s a long movie hits like over two hours while i was a fifteen
minute long but the reg no was actually like to set that endeavor i never i
didn’t having a deal with that long before i
read it afterwards i was i was with it the whole time so i’m
really into it alrighty then matt you know prime of all-star off
saying i did like this movie archive where you are that i thought that higher from some of the price by how
much i liked it because this was another movie that act you know like you said
about eating the summary that i didn’t think we
really need to be repaid and first of all not as the karate kid because it’s in
china and they can easily seem confident okay took the title right that’s kind of
thing i think that being said is an adorable movie i did you had me
for the whole thing but there are some what i feel like big flaws i feel like jane smith is far too young the
storyline for a twelve year old didn’t feel like i
was working for v sometimes in that into the bullies of park kicking the hell out
of this kid they’re all supposed to be like that’s sixth-graders jeannette meyers right but
you know i can’t you know there’s there’s kind of the kind of a romantic
subplot between j_b_ smith and this chinese girl that i didn’t buy it all because any
twelve-year-old boys to be growth at you know i don’t care where we are that high-tech i think that’s a little
bit and so one of the things that i bring that up because it to me it felt
like it takes away from why the bullying case are so down on jaden smith right in the
original ralph mucho runs across runs afoul of johnnie because he’s flirting
with his ex-girlfriends is kind of a new punk kid for johnnie played so well by
william safire left-hand comes in is the a_t_f_ enhancement and you know it and i bring us up to the red as we start
this fantastic article in nineteen eighty club with that we talked about he saw something that johnny comes in suddenly everything’s trinity road
that’s part of why he hates daniel so much you don’t see that in this one it’s its you know the frame of the family is just
angry that black it was talking to the chinese girls protective of okay i will
occur in russia and i felt like there was this you know undercurrent of being there met
him ’cause he’s lacerations visit racial i don’t know and so that kinda bothered me that that i had a problem with and yes
the movies to watch like do we need the helicopter shots of them
training on the great wall you deleted goddam i’d guess i mean that way it’s
always a lot of time and that exactly i felt like that was to log but that being said ultimately i did enjoy the movie it was
a good time and i think its it’s nice to see jackie chan playing a
serious problem seen that alarm clock is going to get it done a lot of catherine
releases the flesh out there that characters so much you know the lasting
last thing i saw him be so serious that was crime story he’s not mugging he’s
not doing jackie chan clap that all the aiesec stuff going on on that he’s not like kitty smiling but
let me know i mean greater will we really get one fight scene out of them
anything really plays it down and there’s a really dramatic scene you know not really giving anything away
because the plot does the very close to the original fell you know it’s thus it’s very similar to
the original film with pat really see where he kinda has the breakdown about
losing his wife and there’s a very similar scenes with
jackie chan annual realize this tragedy at his past please very serious very effectively i
found that seem to be surprisingly good yet he’s been is the only reason i liked
this movie it paul i had a profit all this by saying i got
i’ll mug karate kid growing up like i was twelve when it came out like i had a
big crash i’m not much you know i want to be live at the huge a i went to five
p you a in warner center and will in hills snuck into the bathroom went back inside
and i guess matter to me from my childhood like the idea of a remake like
cares at the fiber of my adolescence carefully the top of the things that looks too
young not much you is what like thirty-five
head when they have their but he looked at sixteen realistically there table at a place
it’s tiny in the original so it works and makes sense on the putting you know fight and having a romance teams that was twelve the he looks
nineteen eighty four to go through the verdict for a train montage his version of lax on website he still really and very tiny wielded you really tiny
and selam it’s sorted irreparable like the fight
that make sense the romance is not make says the whole thing with the grows very
stilted on instigation if there is no chemistry
there are some it’s again it’s premature because there are twelve had that think people who worked well that was one came out at the scene in our yet cuz it isn’t it very traditional rousing crowd pleaser i can see how how people that people will like it and they
want a problem with it being really cranky sensitivity of this error
ecological going with the latest answer and there are times deporting myself and
i thought about it growing up here is not yet know and i
think that they that paper feel like a certain level to
really shot themselves in the foot with the idea of remaking and calling it
a remake a redo it of the original because they’re such
affection and the original such a fantastic movie and that’s a lot to live up to it make
you miss the mark a few places i agree with you although this cut identical that we’ve got a
sweep the leg moment writing exactly as i did write for strike hard numbers if
there’s no it’s not looking at the cemetery said i was with them as much as its long it
was counter with the whole time and i do also have to point out for better for worse gina smith is absolutely his father side
it’s like watching a twelve-year-old wilson fraternity and he looks like in
he sounds like in it’s because here in little exactly’s almost to the point of
distraction almost two point some of his jokes and some of his little asides in
his one-liners thinking either his father coached in through that or that’s the
kind of stuff is father says around the house giving a defect in the d_n_a_
charismatic and rights but he sounds exactly like his father which is great
it’s not that saw that that you can there were sectors to emulate an will
smith when you had a great time one questions like do you think that parents will dislike like for me like i
said i feel like it was a real movie like they did do a lot of or their
subtitles it’s beautifully shot it’s like a real story that i mean this much
as its long i felt like the pacing was alright i feel like parents being
dragged to see this are not going to be greeting dirty p_g_ altho it’s pretty
safe administrator for the preteen four contact fighting redfin haven’t been
apart well and i watch the antarctic problem right is when you get to the point where as in
the original there’s a determinant from you’re seeing these
kids go off and it’s almost you know i’m i bought in two or three or
four years older but watch and twelve-year-olds hitting each other so
hard they’re flipping over at coming off the mat miserable at a very important
broken leg yeah i think they don’t get it in six months hearing even though her
space is getting better but i thought i’d like to say not rushing down to save
him you know what i think you know if you develop it and give it some kind of
term it with for contacted in this country a twelve
year olds abusing each other the way they did in
this everybody involved would be arrested certificate seriously so when they do afl murder the fresh has
a bellaire we now know who can star in it c_s_ fell our ratings to give it you know despite all the complaints i still think
it was a good time an argument six point five and you that i was surprised at how much of like if i
deduct points for doing something to young and which makes the romance not working
quite as well but i would have this when i said he pointed well out a long time
and right now i’m getting at four point nine and without averages absolutely higher
than the average for eighteen ready to give it you can average i don’t know if nap six point
five so when i come back and process and will be it’s not just the young christy
who didn’t like it to you yeah that made me johnny and ralph the chevy adolescent
me cries out but the ron on billions out there on the stairs that that the leak that
states also has a good weekend we’ll come back to reality to do that
and ten now and that next week we have to lead story three which is of course in three d because everything it bennett
so then jonathan that is like that

  1. @my89tube I completely agree 9 year olds these days have girlfriends and boyfriends so he is very off on that one.

  2. TYT's volume is always ridiculously too low. I am always turning up the volume only to do something else and deafen myself and any nearby passers by.

  3. It has been too long since you were 12. I distinctly remember liking girls when i was 12. Adults always underestimate the maturity of children. (blanket statement used to combat blanket statement.)

  4. Yeah WTF! Matt, Christy and Jonathan make a dynamite team – and Ben's also great. Keep up the cool, fun, intelligent reviews.

  5. Agree. If you're going to shoot in China instead of Cali you've already dismantled the original storyline at that point. I think most of the reason was to cash in on the popularity of Mr. Miyagi as a character. I would prefer a fresh movie too, not a remake, in large part because most remakes these days suck and only serve to slay the original. I haven't seen this yet though. I plan on it in the next day or two. My expectations aren't very high so hopefully it will exceed them.

  6. They made a few valid points but spent way too much time slamming Jaden for his size/age rather than assessing his exceptional acting and physical performance.

  7. @jsjkim That's understandable, about how young he looks, but as far as the full contact fighting goes, I know lots of martial arts tournaments in the 10-12 year old bracket do not include the use of pads as I used to participate in them.

  8. @Cawby I agree with you 100%, I believe that it's them that have never been exposed to this side of the world. I wasn't shocked or surprised in any way that the kids were in a full contact event. Anyone else that's was raised around/in the arts I imagine didn't blink an eye at it. The only thing that shocked me was that it was shown in an American movie (that seems to usually hide it), glad they didn't hide it.

    I think the movie was excellent overall and taught a great message.

    Kei

  9. seriously. 4.9? i saw the original and i hope to see the new one. but seriously. 4.9!?! Thats way too low, just because you saw the original doesnt mean that it should seriously affect your score by that much.

  10. @Orious11 i didnt say it has no bearing. If you listened to what she said, she kind of clung onto the old one.

  11. I lived in the inner city during my middle school years and yes 11 and 12 year olds can be just that violent. You only demonstrate your suburban upbringing and lack of imaginanation by saying children of that age wouldn't beat the crap out of someone.

  12. Coming from a girl at 12 years old that is when you start becoming interested in the opposite sex soo Matt just because you were a loser at 12 doesnt mean everyone has to be!!!!

  13. It's not *really* a reboot. What's un-realistic about the bullying? I don't know what these guys were doing when they were 12, but I was jacking off to every non-relative woman I saw. I'm giving your review a '2.1'

  14. BULLSHIT!!!!!!! U american interviewers know NOTHING about asian 12 yr olds. in asia, being 12 means tht ur one yr away from high school or r in first yr high school. Tht would amount to a 14 yr old here in america, and u dont think thts OK?! FUCK U! Hell, u obviously didn't do enough research. When i studied in asia, i was 12 yrs old, in sixth grade, and was about to go to high school the next yr along with my entire grade. Thts how it is, and if u fucking dont understand how the schooling is

  15. then fuck off cuz u (matt) pissed me off so much when you said tht 12 yr olds shouldnt like girls or b beating each other up. Well, first, u must've forgotten wat its like when u were twelve or u aren't in the 21st century yet, but in the 60's as in my catholic elem school, we were alredy "dating" at 12. and in asia, when ur twelve, u r about 2 graduate to high school alredy. in asia, we skip 7th and 8th grade as its compressed in the grade school. so its not tht surprisn 2 c them in a romance.

  16. Whats with the stupid, "Darwin Loves You" on this idiots lap top.
    HEy douche bag, just review the movie, knock off the stupid Darwin stuff. Nice personal agenda……….

  17. @ericleb01 Obviously this goof ball cares, thus the giant sticker on his laptop that says, "Praise Darwin"
    again, this doucher is reviewing movies thats it.

  18. @ericleb01 Didn't, "Dodge the question" I didn't come here for a debate on evolution. I came here to get a review on the new Karate Kid movie. This is not the format, thus the frustration from this doucher reviewing the movie with his, "Praise Darwin" sticker.

  19. I really, REALLY hate the way the girl talks… just saying…

    Loved the film, by the way… and to the fat guy: 12 years old do like girls (you are thinking 8 or 9 with the "ewww gross" stupid remark)

    Have you people ever seen a real Kung Fu tournament? they are just like that, really… god, you are idiots.

    And it's not a ROMANCE you morons, it's a crush…

  20. I was really really surprised by this movie. I thought it was great. The fighting was incredible. Better than most action movies that come out nowadays.

  21. lol when i was 11 i was beaten up buy 14 year olds alsomy first girlfriend so i dont knw u guys are talking about. u all are just old people that clinch to the past

  22. COULDN'T BE CALLED THE "KUNG FU" KID BECAUSE THAT MOVIE ALREADY EXISTS AND THEY WOULD NOT GIVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE A MOVIE OF THE SAME NAME. It's a cute kid flick. I liked Jacki Chan in it.

  23. @Etimos the moive was good what are you talking about it whent great with the origanal with some partss fo its own i liked it it was good funny and good action scenes.

  24. @Etimos im 13 and yes i have horrible spelling but really you didnt like the first then im done if you didnt like the first then theres no way yuor going to like this one.

  25. I loved the movie and the kung fu the kids were doing was awesome. But China is a competitive country, so you shouldn't be surprised at how hardcore they are. I'm sure they have competitions like those out there. Why do you think their gymnasts are so amazing? They work very hard!

  26. Ok, people need to just stop complaining about the "little kids getting beaten" argument… have you ever watched a real tournament with kids that age? its very much like that… please, you americans are way to conservative sometimes and about the wrong things to boot. Anyway, I think this is better than the original, better filmed, better acted and Ralph Macchio looks like a jersey lesbian… that kid is UGLY and not manly AT ALL. You could even say that the original was a lesbian love story.

  27. Jayden Smith favors his father a lot in personality, charm, and screen presence. I avoided this move as an 80s baby and a fan of the original and disdain for the artistic license they took in changing the plot, but I did watch it, and against my best efforts, it charmed me. I think Jayden Smith is quite a competent young actor, and its evident he really trained for the technical aspects of the role.

  28. true, but I prefered the change of Martial art, Karate is really boring watching, while kung fu have hundreds of different schools and styles.

  29. This has nothing to do with karate kid. Will Smith and whoever forced this actor and script upon us should be fined.

  30. if actually had watched this one and the original maybe I would have believed you, but clearly you have not. the story in both movies are the same with the exact same payoff at the end. though you are right on the title being wrong, it's a fucking remake. if it was it's own new movie your reaction would be the right one.and Mr.Miyagi had no need for that sad background, but Mr. Han never looks content happy or angry. he always looks lost and that makes the sad background story fit into the mix.

  31. i think the only reason i like this movie when i watched it 3 years ago is because i was absolutely in love with jaden smith

  32. One — it's actually called the Kung Fu Kid (in most countries outside the US) and
    Two — I have to disagree with the guy in this video (I don't know his name, because last time I watched any TYT video, it was Cenk and Lisa, or whatever her name was), when he said no matter what, 12 year old kids would be like "ew gross" about girls.  I was totally into girls from about 5 on.  Especially after I discovered porn at 9. I was always wanting to fuck my friends in a game of truth or dare.

  33. the Jackie Chan fighting scene reminded me of that Seinfeld episode where Kramer signs up for karate lessons, and it turns out everyone in the class is 10 years old, they wasted him

  34. After being exposed Racists and whiners this movie is all about their supremacy and the kid looks cocky and privileged. Not at all like the original story of the shy hopeful coming up of a young man.

  35. This has nothing to do with TKK franchise its Kung Fu not Karate! Dumb asses should have called it the Kung Fu Kid! It's not a remake.
