"Although I disapprove of exploitation and violence in movies marketed to families, I have to make an exception. Anybody who walks into this movie, deserves what they get. It's Jackie Chan, who really is a dynamic individual with raw talent, taking it a step further by challenging your intellect."Being a massive Jackie Chan Fan since watching 'Project A' from 1982, I went to see this film with a certain amount of anticipation and trepidation. Firstly I loved the original Karate Kid, and although I understood this was not a carbon copy of the original I still didn't want to see it fail or tar the good name of the 'franchise'. Jackie Chan as the wise old 'Mr Han' went brilliantly and even though he doesn't give off quite the same aura as the original 'Mr Miyagi' he still does a damn good job, he pulls off the lonely maintenance man come martial arts expert to perfection and you can feel the empathy and father like qualities oozing from 'Chan' towards 'Jaden Smith's' character 'Dre Parker'. Jaden is obviously from the 'Smith' gene pool and will no doubt go very far in the world of film, and considering this is one of his first steps on the ladder he is definately a very talented youngster with many of his fathers qualities.
