The Karate Kid (2010) (Mastered in 4K)

High-Def Digest
16 May 2013
  • Conclusion: 'The Karate Kid (2010)' is a welcome surprise, with several excellent performances from Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan. With the recent deluge of remakes and reimaginings of many favorites, this is far better than initially expected while staying true to the heart of the original.

  • Conclusion: 'The Karate Kid' took me by surprise, in all the right ways. While in many aspects it's a fairly traditional, big budget sports movie, it's also a story of deceptively nuanced emotional content, anchored by a breakout lead performance by Jaden Smith and a great elder role by Jackie Chan.

  • Excerpt: Karate Kid has surprises. It lures you in, taking your “better than that,” cocky movie-going attitude and shoving it back in your face. You assume you know everything. You can call it that the pin pong player in the park will thoroughly destroy Dre (Jaden Smith) once the game picks up.

  • Summary: I ended up with very mixed emotions about this film. It’s worth taking a look, to be sure. There are certainly aspects in which it rises above the original film, but do these epic proportions take away a little of the spirit of the material? I think they do.

  • Excerpt: The Movie Casting and locale aside, the biggest update in this remake of The Karate Kid is a matter of truth in advertising: No one practices karate here, it's actually kung fu in this go-around.

Cinema Blend
11 June 2010
  • Excerpt: The fact of the matter is it's been 26 years since the first Karate Kid , and given how many other movies have relied on the exact same formula, a full-fledged remake is pretty fair game.

  • Summary: Karate Kid mark 2010 (Smith) is suffering an almighty identity crisis. His mom’s (Henson) moved from Detroit to Beijing, his best mate’s a crazy janitor (Chan) and he’s the centre of a nostalgia-based fish-out-of-water tale which doesn’t seem to care very much about either the fish, the water or the...
