I just saw it yesterday. I must admit I liked it but wouldn't probably pay to see it again. The acting was so so and some of the fight scenes are okay, I guess. I do beleive the mom took the job as a way to better her life. She even said to her son there was nothing back in Detroit and left me to believe it was the only choice and one to better there life or maintain their current life style.

I am not sure how I feel about how they pulled in a lot of the old movie. Like no mercy, break him and the Mr Myagi healing treatment.

I think it will definitely help get more kids interested into the arts which is always a good thing. My wife said it was better than the first and I tried telling her you can't even compare the two. It is like comparing apples and oranges. We had ours from our youth in the 80's and now one for the youth in the 21st century.

Watched it today. I was going to offer my opinion on it, but if you can say anything nice, don't say anything at all. That is all I'm saying!

I enjoyed the movie. Yes it is a remake, so frankly I was surprised by how much of the story DID change. Setting, the actual art being learned, etc. As to the plot being the same - who didn't expect it to be?

I think more could have been done with the training that few days of hanging up a jacket to become a competent wushu practitioner, but that it my only major complaint.

Overall - a fun movie. I hope they follow through with a couple of sequels. Hopefully they will explore new plot options. It's all open to them now.

I'll add it to my karate kid collection eventually, but not at a $20 price tag.

Really does seem to have divided opinion. I noticed on IMDB it's rating has slumped to a 6.0 (at time of writing). When it first came out it had a 7.8 rating. I think as more people have watched and reviewed it the rating seems to have levelled out.

Certainly judging by this thread it seems to have gotten a mixed reaction.

As for sequels, well, they don't usually depend on whether or not the first movie was any good. It depends on if the first movie made a lot of money. And the Karate Kid 2010 has made a reported $225 millon so far, and it hasn't even opened in some territories yet.

Bringing in that kind of dough on a reported $40 million dollar budget means that sequels are more likely to happen than not.

Yeah, more sequels - will they be a remake of the first set of sequels?
