The Karate Kid

Watched the new Karate Kid. Considering I was such a fan of the original, I expected much worse... But I thought the cast was adorable! The micro Will Smith is a total scene stealer, Jackie is wonderful, the little Chinese people are scary and Dre's mum's a blast. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it wasn't the peak of modern cinematography. The hints about Cinese being better than Americans were lovely. Only bit that confused me was - isn't it considered abuse to make children main one another like so? Unprotected fighting? I thought that's child molesting? Guess not.

Really cool bits... "Dre?.... PICK UP YOUR JACKET!?"
