The last time I checked, Karate is a Japanese Martial Art and Jackie Chan is not.
I first saw the billboard for The Karate Kid movie while I was driving on the freeway, then I saw the trailer. I have heard that Jackie Chan was going to be the master and some kid with last name Smith was going to be the Karate Kid. Here’s what’s wrong with this movie: why?
Have Hollywood lost their minds?
Part of Hollywood have lost their minds long ago, with all the unnecessary remakes and total lack of original ideas. There were three Karate Kid movies in the 80’s and one in the 90’s. Now Hollywood think that we all need another Karate Kid. Unfortunately they got it all wrong already. “Karate Kid” in China? I thought that Karate is a Japanese martial art. Not only that Hollywood is lacking originality, but they also lacking the ability to write decent scripts.
Apparently all Asians are the same. Maybe Hollywood should make a movie where all the Asian character played by non-Asians. Wait a minute, M. Night Shyamalan is already doing it.
Will Smith probably is going after me for bashing this movie.
What’s next? A remake of American Pie that takes place in Canada?
