For me, thiz is the best Jackie Chan’s acting of all-time, especially in Hollywood movies. Regularly, he always performed comical part into his characters. But in thiz movie, he has shown the other side of his acting, which he successfully delivers a deep and serious character. I think Jackie also realize (since "Shinjuku Incident" {2009}) that he is not young anymore and sooner or later he will not be able to depend on his martial arts again, he will turn 56 years old thiz year. Yes, it’s still using the same formula like the other “The Karate Kid” movies (1984-1994). Only thiz time, the Cast members are jaw-dropping. Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith becomes the disciple named Dre and Jackie Chan as his master. It’s an ingenious combination. Besides that, we have an exotic and wonderful environment that sets in China. They keep the famous title line “The Karate Kid” but actually it's all about Kung Fu. I will never understand why most of the critics underestimate thiz movie. What I observe, everything has already maximized. The plot is still the same, but the atmosphere is totally renew and absolutely refreshing. The movie is not just filled with great action sequences but also thoughtful life philosophies inside, "Life will knock us down, but we can choose to get back up." is definitely will be one of the memorable quotes. Every time I look at Jaden Smith's best performance, I will be amazed by how his attitude and body language looks similar to his father in most moments. The scene stealers are two Chinese kids around Dre's character. First one is a girl who becomes Dre’s lovely friend, Meiying (Wenwen Han) and Cheng (Zhenwei Wang) who becomes Dre’s furious foe. The man behind thiz remake is the Dutch Director, Harald Zwart. He is a perfect choice for family movie like thiz, just what he has shown in his previous directing credits such as “Agent Cody Banks” (2003) and “The Pink Panther 2” (2009). Every scene, every character and every action is fantastic. It will not make you bored at all, because “everything is Kung Fu!”
