Quick Movie Review
The rest of the movie was very good. The boy had to learn about respect for his mother, for his teacher, for a foreign culture. All that was good. I like the lesson of karate kid that you need to push through and conquer fear if you are going to live with any kind of self-respect. The final tournament see was almost exactly the same as the original movie. One caveat--I do think Jaden Smith is a better actor than Ralph Machio (sp?), however, at least Ralph was a teenager in the first movie and it was the summer before he went to college in the second movie. The new movie had some good action sequences, but it was a little long for my five year old.
