Like every other remake of ’80s themed movies, this is an atrocity. Having Jackie Chan play Mr. Miyagi is just one of the many things that set my brain cells on fire. Taking a beloved classic like The Karate Kid, lacing it with hip-hop and inventing new layered training exercises, doesn’t make you a cleaver writer/director. Neither does changing a teen with a massive chip on his shoulder into a thug from the hood. I will be watching the REAL Karate Kid all day and night in protest.
